With my eyes of faith focused on this coming Lord’s day, I want to encourage you to read Revelation 2:18-29 the LETTER FROM JESUS TO THE CHURCH OF THYATIRA. Please pray for the Holy Spirit to give you understanding in applying this letter from Jesus to our Church, and to your self.
In this Post, I want to focus on the promises Jesus gives to those in the Church of Thyatira who can be described as OVERCOMERS. He recognizes these as the Faithful Ones to Him and His Words found in each of the several Churches. To this company He says:
25 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.
26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.
28 And I will give him the morning star.
29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Briefly, in verses 25-26a, He makes reference to the Rapture of His Church. This, in itself, is and encouragement to continue walking in Faith, Holiness and Righteousness. Then He promises (Vs. 26b-28) that they will rule, with Him over the Nations during the Millennium. Finally, He promises He will give them the “Morning Star.” This is His promise to all who overcome. The morning star is a reference to Himself, What a Reward! The believer will ever be with his Saviour. “…I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.” (Revelation 22:16)
