The King is Coming:  Be Vigilant for Truth

Revelation 2:12-17

Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near. Rev. 1:3

 

Christ commends you when you are faithful and true to Him in the face of opposition. 2:12-13

Warning:  Satan is actively trying to destroy God’s church.

Christ rebukes those who allow false teaching to impact his church. 2:14-15

 

Christ graciously invites anyone to repent of allowing false teaching to impact his church. 2:16

 

Christ promises eternal reward to faithful overcomers who protect his church from false teaching. 2:17

 

Main Idea: God rewards you as a faithful overcomer when you are vigilant in confronting those who are distorting the word of God for their own selfish desires.

 

Application:

  • Are you an overcomer?
  • How do you demonstrate that you are committed to the truth of God’s word?
  • Have you found yourself avoiding the truth of God’s word in your personal decisions?
  • What are you doing to know the word of God?
