“As for the mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand, and the seven golden lampstands: the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.” Stars = the angels of the churches Lampstands = churches
Revelation 2 and 3 are the letters to the churches (to those who are called Christians
2:1-7, 2:8-11, 2: 12-17, 2:18-29, 3:1-6, 3:7-13, 3:14-22 these are the letters written to the churches, to the churches of today.
Each letter starts out with a description of who Christ is:
2:1 “The One who holds the seven stars in His right hand, the One who walks among the seven golden lampstands” (the One who holds the seven angels in His right hand, the One who walks among the churches)
2:8 “The first and the last, who was dead, and has come to life” Rather self explanatory but the One who is first and the last was here before us and who will remain forever more, who was dead the one who was crucified for your sins and three days later rose from the dead victories over death hell and the grave
2:12 “The One who has the sharp two-edged sword”
2:18 “The Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet are like burnished bronze”
3:1 “He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars” Did you know God has seven Spirits? Can you find them in the bible? Jesus holds the seven Spirits of Father God and the seven angels of the churches
3:7 “He who is holy, who is true, who has the key of David, who opens and no man can shut, and who shuts and no man can opens” self explanatory; Christ is holy, true, holds the keys, the one who opens and closes all opportunity’s and blessings and no man can change what the Lord Jesus opens or closes, we are not more powerful the He.
3:14 “The Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God” The Amen; the ending, the faithful and true Witness; the faithful and true One who sees all things, the Beginning of all creation the one who spoke creation in to existence.
Each of theses descriptions of the Lord Jesus are just as true today as they were when they were written the first time and apply to each of us today Christ is in control He sees all things what He sets in to play no man can stop.
Have no fear for Christ is in charge of all things, and if you are His bond servant you have nothing to fear.
See you tomorrow
