Who are the seven assemblies in Asia?

In the first part of this two part series, we established that the assemblies of Revelation 2 and 3 are fundamentally different from the churches to whom Paul wrote. Now that we know who these assemblies are NOT (Pauline churches), it’s time to find out...

Roommates

I have had three hospital stays this month.  And at one stretch, I had 4 roommates in a row.  I did not want to have roommates. I wanted a private room. I came up with sound reasons as to why they simply had to give me a private room.  Why, my heart rate has remained stubbornly high, and it must be because I had roommates! I even calculated the odds...

Gifts, crowns, and overcomers

Three more pieces of evidence We have assembled a growing body of evidence that has come from comparing Paul’s letters to Revelation 2 and 3. That evidence strongly suggests that the seven assemblies in Revelation 2 and 3 are not the same kind of assemblies as are the churches to whom Paul wrote. This week, we wrap up this phase of our investigation by...

What about Ephesus?

Name’s the same We have been compiling a large amount of evidence that strongly suggests the assemblies in Revelation 2 and 3 are NOT churches of the kind that Paul writes to in his letters. We still have a few more things to consider. This week we start out by noticing one similarity between the assemblies of Revelation and the churches in Paul’s...

Do the 7 assemblies in Revelation 2 and 3 possess the great blessings we have in Romans 8?

  Our heart’s home As Christians, Romans 8 is our heart’s home. It’s the mountaintop experience of Christianity. And it’s all ours.   We end up at the top of the mountain, secure in the love of God forever,  because we are in Christ forever. We are in Romans 8, where we are working to answer, with...

The Ministries of the Holy Spirit in Revelation and in Romans

  The person of the Holy Spirit         If you recall, in the first blog of this series, we came away with the  distinct impression that something very different is going on in Revelation 2 & 3 than what is going in in Paul’s epistles. Now we are checking things out systematically, taking up one...

The Holy Spirit in Revelation 1-3

Why all the fuss? In our last blog, we started to compare and contrast the letters of Paul with the letters to the seven assemblies in Revelation 2 and 3. Why?  Because there is much confusion about how to interpret Revelation 2 and 3. And because the English word “church” is found in chapters 1-3, most interpreters simply assume the...

Are Revelation 2 and 3 about us?

A vital question Many if not all  of you have read chapters 2 and 3 in the book of Revelation.  Some of you have studied them in detail. But did you ever notice any differences between these letters to 7 assemblies, and the letters of Paul to the churches? Did you ever ask this question: Is Jesus speaking to us in Revelation...
