Christ promised and prophesied that He would build His very own Church and that it would never die!
It would remain in existence until His Second Coming. So that Church has to be on this Earth somewhere, or Christ is a liar!

From Book 1: This is the introductory text of the "God Series" of books in are as ontologically important as real numbers (upon which scientific materialism is exclusively based). Mathematics is the true Grand Unified Theory of Everything that science pursues so futilely. .. The Omega Point (The God Series Book 10).
God does that in the first three chapters of the book of Revelation. These seven churches in Revelation 1 through 3 are, prophetically, seven eras of the New Testament Church! They describe seven successive Church eras, beginning with the first-century Ephesus era started by Jesus Christ when He was on Earth and continuing to the seventh and final era in these latter days—Laodicea. Just as a message could pass along the mail route from Ephesus to Laodicea, so would the truth of God be passed from era to era. Many people say that these seven churches are only history.
But think on this. It puts all prophecy into a time frame—a chronological order. That is why this book is so critical! Smyrna and Ephesus were only about 35 miles apart, yet one is in tribulation Revelation , and the other is not. Why, if this is only history? The Sardis Church is dead Revelation A few miles down the road is Philadelphia, one of the best churches verses But there is a much greater proof that those churches refer to more than just history. The sixth era, Philadelphia, was fulfilled under Herbert W. Armstrong, who died in He left a superabundance of history and prophecy of the Philadelphia era and how it tied to the five eras preceding it.
Now we are in the last hour of the seventh and final era—the Laodicean era. The world has never understood these messages. Christ addresses them specifically to the seven eras of His Church. These golden lamps symbolize the seven successive Church eras verse Each lamp would be the only source of spiritual light in a very dark world. The world ingeneral, however, is oblivious to it. In the rest of the chapter, John describes a vision of the glorified Jesus Christ. Read the next verses to get the vision of this spectacular Being!
The glorious Jesus Christ is right in the midst of the seven churches, deeply involved in them! That is how each era does a dynamic work for God. Christ personally and powerfully guides and directs His true Church, era by era. He explains our responsibilities and provides guidance to help us fulfill them. The power and dynamism of each era exists in direct proportion to how much it relies on Jesus Christ! What He added, you and I really need to understand in this end time. All of Revelation 2 and 3 is red-letter.
It is what Christ inspired John to write for His Church! Christ has an important message for each of these seven eras. He gives His people encouragement and praise, as well as some profound correction. But all these challenges lead to the Second Coming, and that should keep us inspired forever! Christ sends this message to the seven Church eras.
He uses those seven churches to deliver His message throughout those eras. God has given us the greatest commission He has ever given to man!
In a time of increasing global crisis, we are here to deliver this message for God to this world. The prophecies in Revelation concerning the Church get even more detailed than what is covered in Revelation 2 and 3. It unveils some dreadful prophecies concerning the true people of God living in this end time. That is a picture of the tremendous power God gives to His Church, which is being prepared to rule with Christ over the entire universe.
The word little in the original Greek means small in number, size or quantity. It would be small in size. Christ promised that the Church would never die, but He never said it would enjoy a large following. Jesus explained why the Church would be small. During His earthly ministry, He suffered intense persecution culminating in His crucifixion! He warned the Church that it would be persecuted too.
You can match this with other prophecies, particularly in the book of Daniel, and the record of history to learn what these empires were. The last of them—the Roman Empire—has 10 horns, meaning there would be 10 resurrections of that empire. The last of these is prophesied to occur just before the Second Coming, and it is happening right now! This child was born to rule the world and to replace Satan, who rules this world now verse 9; see also 2 Corinthians The whole world has been deceived. That includes all religions except the true Church of God.
This unique character is against all the odds. God, who through the Word creates all things see John and keeps them in existence, gives men an enduring witness to Himself in created realities see Rom. These ten days have reminded me how peaceful and joyous it is to talk with my Savior and feel His presence. JOHN It unveils some dreadful prophecies concerning the true people of God living in this end time.
