Revelation 2:1-3 Good, the Bad & the Ugly Mark


Revelation 2:1-3

1 “To the angel of the church in Ephesus write: The One who holds the seven stars in His right hand, the One who walks among the seven golden lampstands, says this: 2 ‘I know your deeds and your labor and perseverance, and that you cannot tolerate evil people, and you have put those who call themselves apostles to the test, and they are not, and you found them to be false; 3 and you have perseverance and have endured on account of My name, and have not become weary.


The last book of the Holy Bible reveals that Jesus Christ is Lord; it says so in the first verse of Revelation. Many things are revealed or explained in the book of Revelation. Other parts of God’s word explain end-time events, such as the book of Jeremiah or Daniel, and some parables of Christ do as well. Revelations Chapters 2 and 3 are messages directed to seven churches but are meant for the whole body of Christ. The message is the Lord Jesus Christ walks among those in the church. Does that mean a physical or spiritual church? Many Christians do not attend any church, and they don’t care to. My friend Jezebel loves the Lord but doesn’t care to attend church. Ask her why, and she will say the church’s teaching is incorrect. She even said if I am at the grocery store and someone starts a conversation about Jesus, that market is a church. Another sister in Christ, Michelle, won’t attend church because other church members are not Christ-like. Sandra and Susie are my sisters; they believe in Jesus but don’t attend church or care to. Ask her why; Susie will point at others in the church, and their unchristian-like behavior will keep her away. But we go to the house of God to worship Him, not the other sinners who are saved by grace. Let the Lord worry about who is His in the church and who is not. The book of Revelation reveals to us the Lord Himself is in the midst of the church, and He knows if they truly love Him or love Him not.  

Revelation 1:12 Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking with me. And after turning I saw seven golden lampstands; 13 and in the middle of the lampstands I saw one like a son of man, clothed in a robe reaching to the feet, and wrapped around the chest with a golden sash. ~ :20 As for the mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand, and the seven golden lampstands: the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.  

Yes, of course, the church, a body of Christ, has the good, the bad, and the ugly Christians in it. Guess what, brothers and sisters? So does the average supermarket, shopping mall, movie theater, or schoolhouse. Still, in different parts, the Holy Bible says when two or three are gathered in His name, He will be with them. Is that your worship life? Do you worship among others, or is your worship an isolated event? Cain, the brother of Abel, cannot please the Lord with his incorrect way of worshipping the Lord. So, the Lord did not acknowledge Cain’s worship, but He loved Abel’s. My family and friends, or other Christians, who don’t know who worships in any assembly, are they pleasing the Lord with their style of worship? If you and I are forsaking the worship assembly, what other parts of scripture are we forsaking? Find a church family; if you need help, contact me. God bless you all, the church’s Bridegroom, and I love you—Bondservant of the Lord, Samuel Jerry Head.

Matthew 18:18 Truly I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven. 19 “Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven.

Hebrews 10:24 and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, 25 not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near. 26 For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27 but a terrifying expectation of judgment and the fury of a fire which will consume the adversaries.
