    This is as close as you could get to the understanding and help of God if you will except it.
  • Manuelf324
    a good indication your backsliding or even saved is if your honest with yourself. IM I HERE ON EARTH TO PLEASE GOD OR MAN?
  • A disciple
    Of the Seven Churches chosen, only two of them were not fallen away and warned to repent; Smyrna and Philadelphia. All the rest, from Ephesus to Laodicea, none were ready for, or would be able to stand in, the quickly approaching evil days; and were in real danger of being turned away and denied entrance into the kingdom of God. Whom the Lord loves He rebukes in order to save them.
  • A disciple
    Anna (cont.); In the case of the Ephesians, it was apparently not love of the world or the things of the world that drew their hearts away; but maybe it was all the things that the Lord had blessed them with in their great victory and success and being without fault as to their religion? Daniel was also found perfect in everything pertaining to God; but he maintained the sacred inner life of love.
  • A disciple
    Hi Anna; Thank you for your thoughtful reply. The matter with the Ephesian Assembly was very important to have been named first in the warnings to the Christians against the imminent crisis set to bring about the completion of this age. In those who were by all measures first and leaders and exercising all piety among the Saints, "losing sight of and desire for our First Love" is inexcusable!
