12 The Church Militant – Discussion Topics — 2 Comments

  1. Joyce, thank you for the questions!
    Indeed, why does John desrcibe the seven churches, using this very order? Different benefits and sins, different awards and punishment for each church, that is clear, but the church of Ephesus is the first and the one of Laodicea is the last. The church of Ephesus looks like the worst of the seven, because Jesus compares it with the fallen angel. He does not find the works of Sardis (the fifth church) perfect before God, but this is about the perfection, it's great. And He tastes the church of Laodicea as a lukewarm one and threaten to vomit it out of His mouth, but to be vomited smth must be before within, to be tasted by God smth must be inside Him. Even the award for the last church is the greatest.
