R2 Thyatira

Hi, we are studying Revelation 2&3, the letters of Jesus to the seven churches and we have arrived at the church in Thyatira.

To go to the beginning, to the first of my posts on the church in Ephesus then please click here.

Please either listen to the audio clip above or read the notes below or both at the same time!

Revelation 2:18  ‘These are the words of the Son of God, whose eyes are like blazing fire and whose feet are like burnished bronze.’

There is no place to stand and argue with these words. Whilst he walked the earth, men could despise him and mock him behind his back.

Isaiah 53:3  ‘He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide their faces, he was   despised and we esteemed him not.’

But here, the true nature of Jesus is revealed.

Hebrews 4:13   ‘Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.’

To those who dwell in his loving presence, to gaze into his eyes will be sheer joy.

Revelation 22:4   ‘They will see his face and his name will be on their foreheads.

But those who have rejected him will say:

Revelation 6:16   ‘They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of their wrath has come and who can stand?

We get to choose now…surrendering to the Son of God or turning away.

We get to choose life or death!

Choose life!
