Pre-tribulation Warning to the Seven Churches
Many have said the seven churches can be looked at as the churches that have evolved through the centuries (THE SEVEN CHURCH AGES), or simply seven churches in the 1st Century. I feel what is so magnificent and awesome in the Word of God is the way Truth transcends time and is applicable to many facets and dimensions. I find the different styles of churches that are described in Revelation could just as easily be a cross section of our present day churches. I feel it was relevant to the actual churches of the period, and transcend time and is also relevant today.
I also find it was purposefully placed in Revelation of Jesus Christ after the announcement by God to the Saints who Jesus will be when He returns. I also see that the placement is strategically placed before the 7 Seals, the 7 Trumpets, and the 7 Bowl Judgments. That should be a hint that maybe the churches should do a self-assessment and self-examination in the last days prior to the “Troubles of Jacob” and the return of Jesus Christ.
However, there may be a correlation to many churches why they minimize Revelation or block it. And as I have said before, I do not believe I have ever heard of a church acknowledging a need to repent. To the ministers of the Word of God: if you are the shepherd of your flock; you might re-consider your assignment.
