Taken from Christ’s admonitions to the seven churches – Revelation 2:1 – 3:22
Ephesus – Our Church is a strong group of overcoming believers. We do not tolerate evil among us, and we stand firm against the spirit of our age. Lord, we hate what you hate, and we have the spiritual discernment concerning those in whom we associate.
We are not weary. We still love you like at the first, and we are still doing the things we did at the beginning. We monitor the condition of our hearts, and we are quick to repent and change our behavior. As overcomers, we will eat of the tree of life that is planted in the Paradise of God. Our hearts are open to what the Spirit is saying to us.
Smyrna – We continue to say only what your word says about us. We will not be intimidated by, nor will we repeat, the slander and lies of the world. We are not afraid of persecution or suffering, and we are steadfast under all conditions. When we are tested, we will prove faithful and true. As overcomers, we will wear the victor’s crown. We will not be harmed by the second death. Our hearts are open to what the Spirit is saying to us.
Pergamum – Lord, we hold fast to your name. We will not deny the faith, even if some of our members are murdered before us. We stand firm upon the teachings of your word, and will not allow false teachers in our midst. We are not enticed by sin for we are only attracted to beliefs that are holy, moral, and true. As overcomers, we will taste of your hidden manna. Each of us will receive a white stone and a name that no one else will know. Our hearts are open to what the Spirit is saying to us.
Thyatira – We are faithful, and we are submitted to you alone. We will not be seduced into adulterous behavior by wrong teaching or thinking. We take into account the judgment upon those who do not repent, and we will not follow them. Lord, we know that you are the one who searches hearts and minds. We also know that you reward each according to their works. We will be overcomers because we will maintain our good works unto the end. As such, we shall receive the star of the morning and rule the nations. Our hearts are open to what the Spirit is saying to us.
Sardis – We are not dead or asleep, but alive and alert. We remember what we have heard, and we will complete it. We know that you will come like a thief in the night, looking for those who are faithful and worthy. We will be found worthy, and we will walk with you in white clothes. As overcomers, our names will remain in the book of life, and we will hear our names confessed before the Father and His angels. Our hearts are open to what the Spirit is saying to us.
Philadelphia – Lord, we keep your word and will not deny your name. Because of this, there is an open door forever before us. No one can shut this door. Because we have obeyed your word, you will keep us safe from the world’s hour of testing. We hold fast to what we have, and we will not allow anyone to take our crown. As overcomers, we will become pillars in the temple of God. We will have written on us the name of God, the name of the city of God, the New Jerusalem, and your new name. Our hearts are open to what the Spirit is saying to us.
Laodicea – We are not lukewarm. Our lives, our hearts, and our deeds are hot for you. We buy from you gold refined in the fire so that we may be rich. We have white clothes to cover our nakedness, and we receive eye salve that we may truly see. We know you correct and discipline everyone you love. We take your commands seriously, and we are quick to repent. Lord Jesus, we hear you calling; come into our life and church. We desire to dine with you. As overcomers, we will sit down with you on your throne. Our hearts are open to what the Spirit is saying to us.
PS – I have never written anything where my heart glowed with warmth and approval of the Holy Spirit as when I wrote this. It was an incredible experience. I simply took several translations of Revelation 2:1 – 3:22, and built a consensus of what I believe Jesus was saying. I then wrote a confession that responded to each of His comments. God is so good to us when we serve Him.
This is awesome, thank you for obeying the holy spirit.
Completely AWESOME! I just saw this for the first time today! I am speaking these over myself and my family. Thanks so much! May God bring a 1000 fold into you body, soul and spirit!
Thank you. This is an eye opener. It answers all my questions.
Though my feet fail without failure, I seize to give up my faith instead I praise on your embrace and sing to you from the heart with shame and joy. My heart is forever grateful for my deliverance from evil each time. May you grant me the strength and wisdom to accept who I am. I am redeemed and pray that those who feel they are not worthy that they may open the eyes of their heart and pray for your eyes.
I am so glad to have found Christians with whom I can continue my faith walk. Having been lost for a long time I received the baptism in the Holy Spirit recently. What a life changing experience, truly a gift of a new life. I struggle on to learn more and grow in Christ, being greatly encouraged by your faith and prayers.
