The letters to the various churches in Asia were written to specific churches that existed after Pentecost. Many of these churches were born out of persecution. And developed through the letters from the Apostles and Paul’s teachings. They are ALSO a prophetic reflection of the churches today. I love the Word of God. There is such depth and layers upon layers of truth.
All of these churches were doing good. Yet, in each one, Jesus found an area of change that was needed, except the Church in Philadelphia. Interesting!
I’m convinced this Fellowship of the Philadelphia Church is born out of persecution. Ugh!
I’m finding that over the past three years so many believers have suffered tremendous opposition. In the past twelve months, opposition, struggle, pain has increased for everyone who is a sold-out believer in Christ. Report after report, the pain, the disappointment, THE UNEXPECTED!
All of the Church is walking through this. Can I get an amen?
I’m in the middle of the wilderness! AGAIN! There are days I ask, “Lord, what?” I mean really. Living with in-laws, Mike’s cancer journey, can’t find a home right now, etc. These are life-altering events. And for us, they happened all at the same time.
I’m not alone. You could share your heartbreaks as well.
BUT, when you step back from the chaos and sit with the Father, there is peace to be found. There is hope. We have a future. AND WE KNOW WHERE WE ARE HEADED.
Imagine with me, there before us is the Lord Jesus. His smile is brilliant and speaks to our heart with acceptance, love, and honor. He has walked through the fire with us. His steady hand at our back throughout the waves of persecution and desperation. He held us when we couldn’t walk. He took our doubt, pain, and fear and spoke beauty, wholehearted love, and a peace that surpasses all understanding.
He is the Head of the Church and reigns NOW and forever! The Philadelphia Company is born out of our desperation.
It’s our desperation that has led to the very hour. Next time, I’ll share more about how desperation is a key in the Kingdom. It will blow your mind.
My friends, today, add your name to the Heavenly Roll Call. Decree today your name is written in the Book of Life and appears upon the Scroll- The Philadelphia Company. In the comments add your name and let’s let all heaven see we are signing up and signing on for our mission in these Days of the Church.
I adore you. Keep Marching. Remain Desperate. See you in the Comments.
Jesus is King!
Jeanne here. Last June (2021) I had a strong leading from Holy Spirit to learn what it means to be seated with Christ in the heavenly places. Over the course of the next 7 months, the topic was brought to my mind many, many times. But I never sat down and studied it out.
God (in his mercy) did not wait until I got around to studying it. After work last night, I was making supper (tater tot hotdish – shout-out to my Minnesota readers!) Pandora was playing a contemporary Christian song that I’ve heard dozens of times before. Suddenly I was struck with powerful revelation… it’s hard to put the experience into words. I stood in my kitchen weeping, and when I had pulled myself together, I grabbed the nearest piece of paper – a grocery list – and wrote down what I suddenly knew:
We are seated on the mercy seat with Jesus. We can extend his mercy, grace, and forgiveness to our fellow humans. We can exercise his authority over the demonic. We can calm the storm and move the mountain. We can heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out demons. IT IS FINISHED.
Yesterday morning I believed all these things were true because God’s word says so. But now I know they are true in every cell of my body. There’s nothing left to wait for. It’s time for us, if we call ourselves followers of Jesus, do what he told us to do. He gave us everything we need. We are seated in the heavenly realms with Christ Jesus. As the Father sent Jesus, now Jesus sends us. We are sent to preach the kingdom of God and to take back all the ground that the enemy has stolen.
We are simultaneously seated in the heavenly realm with Jesus and walking this earth in physical bodies. We must do the work of Jesus, to carry out his will and enforce his decrees, because we – believers -- are the only body he has on earth now. We must preach the gospel. We must comfort the brokenhearted. We must declare freedom from darkness for those bound by the chains of deception. We must bind every lying spirit of suicide, depression, anxiety, lost identity, and fear. We must loose the Spirit of love, mercy, and forgiveness. We have been given the ministry of reconciliation, not just a cessation of hostility, but rather bringing people back into an intimate relationship with the God who created them and has loved them from the beginning of time.
There is much talk these days of the end times. In Matthew chapters 24 and 25 Jesus talks about the signs of his return, and also what he expects of us in the meantime. He repeatedly warns us to be ready. If you knew Jesus was coming next week, what would you do? If you knew Jesus was coming in a year, what would you do? It seems many of us, including myself, have been concerned with all sorts of things that won’t matter a bit when Jesus returns. I am haunted by Luke 18:8: Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?
The conflict between the kingdom of God and the powers of darkness is not some spectator sport. There is no point in sitting on the sidelines, cheering for good and decrying evil. That’s not what Jesus meant when he told us to announce the kingdom, heal the sick, raise the dead, and cast out demons. We aren’t seated in the heavenlies with him so we can have a better view of the game!
There is a fire in me that wasn’t there yesterday, and I pray it lights you up too. One of my former instructors says, “Don’t worry about what people will think if you don’t get it exactly right. If you’re on fire for Jesus, they’ll come watch you burn.” I pray Holy Spirit fire falls on everyone who reads this. I pray that wisdom, discernment, and above all the incomprehensible love of God fills your hearts and minds.
I’d love you to share in the comments what you would do differently if you knew Jesus was coming on a particular day in the near future, or what it means to you to be seated in the heavenly realms with him. May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
Following the Video, End Times, Seminar from last week, I did receive a number of questions from all of you. And that is wonderful!! So many of you told me you were diving in and searching the Word for more on your own. And THAT is exactly what I hoped.
I’m still working out some of the details myself. The day when the entire story, purpose and ending of God’s plan came into a greater understanding in my mind, I felt like I had an aerial (Seated in heavenly realms with Christ). It’s like I was airborn and looking down upon the earth and watching the entire contents of the Bible playing out, beginning to the end. WOW!
I remember calling one of my friends and sharing this experience. I felt a euphoria about the revelation and understanding. My prayer is that you also arise and view it with Jesus where we are seated in heavenly realms.
There remains a tremendous amount of information and detail that I didn’t have time to share. And it’s difficult to share the details as one of you wrote to me and said: I know the information was important. Not sure a lot of our brethren are ready and willing to have their doctrine challenged but yes it needs to be offered.
I think before I share more details and scripture, we need to stop here and acknowledge two words:
Cognitive Dissonance. The psychological tension that occurs when one holds mutually exclusive beliefs or attitudes and that often motivates people to modify their thoughts or behaviors in order to reduce the tension.
Many in the church aren't ready for their long held churchified belief systems to be challenged. But everything I shared was absolutely backed up by the scriptures. That's why you turned so many pages as I was teaching. An example is this: In Matthew 24, remember I stated that Jesus' prophetic words were addressed to the Jews. It's very important to understand the mindset of these people, the "persons" Gentile, Jew, Church and satanic seed, to whom the passage is addressing.
Cognative dissonance describes my experience when I ventured into the realm of praying for SRA survivors, studying out the end times, researching the events of our time. The utter evil that is loose on planet earth will undo you. The truth will challenge every belief system you hold. The truth confronts the religious spirit and will force you to reconcile your comfortable Christianity for the reality.
I remember calling my friend, Deb, one day about two years ago, while I was in the middle of my study regarding SRA. I said to her, “Is the sky blue?” So many of my beliefs were being challenged and I had to wrangle with new revelations over and again. It’s difficult. But, I asked the Lord for the truth. I really wanted to understand what my God was doing on this earth and participate.
Some of us are called into this kind of revelation and reality. And some are not. I will not condemn my brothers and sisters if they decide it’s too much. I just ask one thing of you: Don’t be comfortable and complacent in your faith. Complacency is a doorway to demonic inroads. Allow your faith to be challenged. This process is the maturing process. It’s necessary. And once you have truly walked through the challenges, this is what occurs:
YOU KNOW, THAT YOU KNOW, THAT YOU KNOW, IN YOUR KNOWER ABSOLUTELY WHAT YOU BELIEVE. And you can stand upon it against all the powers of hell!
I know many of you are likely in that place of wrangling through the massive amount of information I shared last week. And it’s okay. The best thing you can do is press forward and pray. Then pray… And pray some more. Remember the scripture: Knock and it will be opened. Seek and you will find. This scripture will prove true to you. If possible, find someone to walk through the information with you. It’s always helpful to have someone to bounce your discoveries off of.
Okay, today let’s chat about one of my favorite subjects, The Philadelphia Company.
Who are these people? What is their purpose.
This church at Philadelphia is mentioned in Revelation, chapter three. John, under unction of the Holy Spirit and with Jesus, writes the book of Revelation while imprisoned on the Island of Patmos. I’ll share here that tradition and supporting books indicate that several times the Romans and the Jews tried to kill the apostle, John. He was boiled in oil but the tradition says he didn’t die so they sent him off to the penal colony where scholars indicate he lived into his 90's and died on natural causes.
*A note here. At times I’ll share extra Biblical information I’ve gained. When I do, such as this information about John, it’s just interesting. But, never does it have a bearing or change the doctrinal truth of the Bible. The Bible is our final Word. But I find the details so interesting because I'm a study of my Father's Kingdom.
These letters to the churches teach us a significant amount of information regarding our current dispensation of time. So, here is my assignment.
Open the book of Revelation. Read all the letters to the churches. Come back here and share with me what you think Jesus is revealing to us through them as a whole. And share your thoughts about what kind of church we are looking at today in and among these letters.
Okay, can’t wait to meet you in the comments. This is going to be an exciting ride. I bless you with the truth. Jesus is the way the truth and the light. AMEN
