Spiritual Gifts Part 273: Overcomers and the Angelic Conflict.
At the Bema Seat judgment, the overcoming believers will be promoted.
In context , John is referring to continuing to walk in the truth, not being sidetracked or deceived by false teachers.
2 John is a very short letter and it is characterized by three words: truth, commandments, and teaching.
This is talking about false teachers. The New Testament identifies false teachers as a major obstacle to the mission of the church.
With the Philadelphia church, “what you have” is the truth in your souls, the word of God.
The Book of Revelation is the textbook of world history from the time of John A.D. 96 to the end of time.
In Rev 2 and 3, we have letters written for the dispensation of the Church-age. The Church-age is located between the two greatest prophecies in history, the first and second Advents of Christ.
From Pentecost until the resurrection of the church we have the dispensation of the church, which is the dispensation of historical trends.
Then comes the rapture of the church, the next eschatological event to be fulfilled.
In Revelation 4 and 5 we see the church in heaven.
In Revelation chapter 6 through 18 we have three views of the Tribulation.
Revelation chapter 19 deals with the Second-Advent of Christ.
Some teach that the seven churches portray seven historical stages that the church would go through.
Others teach that it refers to the seven different types of churches or seven different types of individual believers that live in every generation.
For our purposes, we take the view that the seven churches portray seven different types of individual believers that live in every generation.
