The Seven Churches

We Believe the Seven Churches Represent the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Seven Churches-2

The Book of Revelation addresses to the seven churches of Asia. Since the number seven in the Bible symbolizes perfection and completeness. We believe the seven churches represent the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Lord’s church is made up of those who are saved and live a genuine faith.  They also follow the Word of God with sincerity, no matter what denomination they belong to.

They are like a mirror reflecting the profiles of every Christian. Each one shows the character or kind of Christians we are, as well as the character of the churches that were and are in the world. 

The Lord Jesus personally warms the 7 churches in The book of Revelation. He also acknowledges their good deeds and qualities. These seven letters call every Christian to carefully evaluate what type of servant they have been to their Lord.

The Seven Letters Have a Few Similarities:

  • They are all addressed to Christians through the “angel of the church,” their leader. 
  • In all of them, the Lord Jesus describes something about Himself, almost always referring to the vision that John had of the glorified Lord.
  • Nothing is hidden from Jesus’ eyes, because in every letter, the Lord Jesus shows that He is thoroughly acquainted with the churches.
  • All of the churches are urged to either persevere or repent. 
  • All of the churches are called to hear the voice of the Spirit.
  • All of the churches receive promises for those who overcome.
