- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
3:16 So because thou art lukewarm - The effect of lukewarm water is well known. I am about to spue thee out of my mouth - I will utterly cast thee from me; that is, unless thou repent.
Re 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm. This lukewarmness was most offensive, and hence the Lord declares I will spue thee out of my mouth. They shall be rejected like nauseous food. The figure indicates loathing.

Some of you out there may have concerns that Your Savior will spue you out if you are a lukewarm Christian, if you have kids you know this is not true! Any child of mine that acts up or is bad or is indifferent or... etc. (I have 5 kids) would NEVER cause me to disown one of them! Remember king David fell away for a season and he was called the man after Gods own heart.

Well i feel for that particular scripture you can't play nice only to ur favourites and treat the rest like trash or a nobody!because love is for all,for the hungry, the messed up, the unjustly, family, dogs, the rich and even that annoying person that's always on ur neck!!lastly our heavenly father is love and he sees right through the heart .if really ur his, the fruits u bear will prove if ur there,in conclusion Abba help us not compromise your word and not leave anything out.from the bottom of our hearts your all we need to accomplish your purpose in Jesus's name Amen........

Re: Rev, 3:16, personal experience, I was made to feel unworthy to exist or breath the air that I do from my parents. I understand what loathing is, God saying He loathes those lukewarm, I also found I could do nothing in life, for if you never believe in something and have faith in it 100 percent, you really are lukewarm and can do nothing. For me, it's been a long road by Godsgrace to see that if I don't understand his worth for me, I really am spat out and can do nothing for Him, me, or anyone else.
