People's Bible Notes for Revelation 3:14


Re 3:14 THE CHURCH AT LAODICEA The church of the Laodiceans. Laodicea was situated in the valley of the Lycus, near Colosse and Hierapolis. All three of these churches are named by Paul in the Colossian letter, and an epistle, now probably lost, was sent to Laodicea. The city of Laodicea was very proud of its wealth in the latter part of the first century, a fact we learn from profane history. The church was probably founded by Epaphras, a companion of Paul. The condemnation of the Lord in this epistle is severe, and its extinction is threatened. The site of the ancient city is uninhabited now, and of course the church has long since cease to exist. The Amen, the faithful and true witness. See notes on Re 1:5 2Co 1:20. The beginning of the creation of God. The Being from which the creation begins, the Word that made all things.

    THE LORD'S PRAYER : Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. - Put us not to the trial/ test but give us shelter
  • A disciple
    I'm afraid that there are so many willing to "make" Scriptures mean whatever they want; while they wish so bad to escape the way of the cross! As the Apostle said, so I tell you now, even weeping; that they are enemies of the cross of Christ! We are appointed as sheep for the slaughter, to love not our lives unto death; if we might obtain the crown of life. But so many seek to save their lives...
  • MRP
    There is no pre tribulation rapture - but there is a literal,actual,great escape into the wilderness . There will be places of safety from the great tribulation,that being God's judgement upon the world,for them that search and are approved and chosen by God himself . Watch and pray to be found worthy and to recognize the given sign for what it is,the abomination of desolation,and then move out .
  • Nathaniel A Saunders
    I've understood that I must change and turn myself to the Lord Jesus Christ and if I love Jesus I must keep his commandments and the father would love me as well. I also learn that there is NO man who doesn't get reborn he will not be able to enter in the Kingdom of GOD
  • A disciple
    Charles; Don't be afraid, trust in the Lord! He has promised that not one of those which the Father has given Him shall perish; and a bruised reed He will not break, nor will He quench a smoking flax. No one is able to pluck us out of the Father's hand! Keep reading your Bible every day, and resist the devil's temptations by standing on the Scriptures. Never give up!

    Stay with him even sometimes you a walking alone that. That is what enemy of above this world would like you to think
