To the Church in Philadelphia December 10, 2015

Here are my thoughts on Revelation 3:7-13.

Summary: In this passage, Jesus Christ commands John to write to the minister of the church in Philadelphia. In particular, He praises them for shunning apostasy – even in the face of persecution. He states that He will preserve them from trials and cause their persecutors to submit to them. He promises that those who shun apostasy will serve as a monument to what God has done through them.

Thoughts: I certainly hope to meet the believers from the church in Philadelphia in the next life and learn how they responded to this letter. I hope to ply them with queries such as:

  • why did Christ state that they had “little strength?”
  • how did they shun apostasy in the face of persecution?
  • were they able to convert any of the Jews who persecuted them?
