This teaching I must say was great for me in learning and understanding the seven churches with the significance of this number.
The number seven encompasses a complete circle, along with thoughts, ways of God. Seven days of a week, feast of Isreal, parables of kingdom in heaven. He seven stars, seven seals, candlesticks, angels, trumpets, vials, plagues and the seven churches. Silly on my part, for I heard of these but never took the time to really examine them.
Being receptive and desiring to know more ,learning in-depth information.
*Ephesus- Lord detects the root of all declension.
*Smyrna- message of ephesus is general, smyrna is specific.
* Pergamos - Christianity is established
* Thyatira - middle ages, Jezebel.
* Sardia - Protestant following the work of Reformation.
* Philadelphia - feeble remnant
* Laodicea - indifference. Being like warm.
Just getting an understanding, was great for me, as well as the office, call of an Apostle. The apostle being called with authority, Also called for authority and death. Whew! While the disciples are sent with power.
Every apostle has a job description, and must have a clear statement. ^ Mission
Apostello - letter from King-gives to the apostle.
Badillia - is kingdom and the base.
Apostolos- apostle being the sent one.
Calio - being called.
Im so looking forward what God is doing in my life , thanks to this course.
