Hi, this is a study into Jesus’ letters to the seven churches in Revelation 2&3.. We are studying the church of Thyatira at the moment.
Please either listen to the audio above or read the notes below or both at the same time1
Revelation 2:24 ‘Now I say to the rest of you in Thyatira, to you who do not hold to her teaching and have not learned Satan’s so-called deep secret,’
The craft of false religions is to create deep secrets that only those adherents in the centre of the chosen circle know about. This creates a sense of belonging and spiritual superiority. Some will crave this inner knowledge in order to gain power and/or recognition within the group.
There is a dark spiritual force that drives this craving for esoteric knowledge. Their spells and incantations become their purpose and identity. They become lost in the spirals of teachings that are woven by their corrupt masters. The answer is always just around the corner, always just at the next level, but it never seems to arrive.
There is always one more book that they need to buy, or one more conference to attend, where finally they will find the answer and enter the rarified atmosphere of enlightenment.
Their eternal search has fueled the industry that creates these false teachings.
The remedy within the church is always the sound but yet deep teaching of the holy scriptures that will satisfy and quench the inner thirst and search for spiritual understandings.
End-time theology is poorly taught in our churches and many will go to the dear old internet searching for answers but yet there are charlatans and wolves just waiting to snatch them up.
Revelation 2:25 ‘Only hold on to what you have until I come.’
Tomorrow we look at perseverance. To get there now please click here
There is a wisdom here. The simple truths of scripture will hold us well until Christ Jesus returns in power and glory. Scripture is all-sufficient. Scripture is all that we need.
