The Book of Revelation was written to the seven Churches of Asia; it was written by the Apostle John, and indicated the immediate as well as the future for the Church. It leaves only one church without a message of condemnation by the end of history; (Philadelphia) there God says: “I know your deeds. Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power, and have kept My word and have not denied My name. I will cause those of the synagogue of Satan, who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie—I will make them come and bow down at your feet, and make them know that I have loved you. Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. I am coming quickly; hold fast what you have, so that no one will take your crown. He who overcomes I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he will not go out from it anymore; and I will write on him the ‘name of My God ,and the name of the city of My God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God, and My new name. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
In recalling the messages to the churches, one can see that as the years go by, there is repetition of the problems, and that the professing church of this hour finds only a small portion of “Philadelphians” following the dictates of Scripture.
That “quickly” of the hour and the speed is upon us. Thus, the “COME” to Philadelphia is surely in close to proximity to fulfillment.
For a few moments, think on these things! (Brought to my attention.)
The Scripture concludes with a very personal, a most individual appeal. (Rev. 22:17)
Genesis 7:1 …God says “Come”
Matthew 11:28 … Jesus says “Come”
Revelation 22:17 … The Holy Spirit and the Bride says “Come”
Psalm 70:7 … The sinner says “Come” (See Psalm 70:7)
The first “Come” Brought salvation to Noah and his family!
