Session 11 - Faith and grace in receiving heavenly rewards Study in Revelation 2 & 3
Hebrews 11 (the ‘hall of fame’) they all received their reward by faith. It take faith and grace to receive Heavenly rewards.
2 extremes that scripture tells us to avoid – 1) Legalism & 2) Compromise
These are the “2 ditches on the side of the road of truth. Most of the church in the western word is on the ditch on the side of compromise. Because people are afraid of legalism they are too much more comfortable in compromise.
YET WE DON”T NEED TO BE IN EITHER DITCH”.
Mike speaks about how Revelation 2 & 3 can keep us out of either ditch!
Session 09 - 20 Different Rewards! “20 different rewards that Jesus mentions with his own lips that he promises those that would faithful obey him.”
Most believers would have a hard time to list 5 of the rewards that Jesus mentioned with his own lips. This is not a rebuke, but rather to wake us up! The uncreated God saying ‘If you will press into me this is what I will give you forever’ and the church doesn’t even know the connection that Jesus is calling us into. – Paraphrased from Mike Bickle.
Session 08 Message to Laodicea: What it means for them & us"and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked"
So the Lord rebukes them IN ORDER that they may gain their reward " and that the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed"
Clearly it is possible to loose your reward.
Here's another great promise "He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne" - but you must overcome to receive it, it isn't a default gift for all!
There are other gifts in this passage that Mike explains well.
Session 07 Message to Philidelphia PART 2Just so you know, the new Jerusalem is coming down to the earth, heaven is coming down to the earth.
Jesus wants them to see how their faithfulness now will (costly obedience) will receive a release of eternal glory!
What is being offered is a position in Jesus' eternal government.
Session 06 - Message to Philadelphia; & What it means for usHere Jesus tells them that it is possible to loose their crown (therefore not everyone will have a crown - some people will lose it).
Here Jesus tells them that some will be made as pillars in the temple (Mike Bickle believes that part of this speaks to the proximity that SOME will have to Jesus). Remember that Jesus is fully man (still fully God) and therefore can only physically be in one place at a time.
Session 05 - Message to Sardis & What it means to usThey had experienced revival but did not press through and did no continue to cultivate a life in Jesus. They will living on the past memory of their spiritual vigor.
I want you to have your full reward. But you won’t accidentally receive it, for what Jesus requires is far different than which society is telling you.
He who overcomes will thus be clothed in white garments - This is not a promise for ALL BELIEVERS! (Or better to say it is a rewards of tiered status).
Jesus though the words of Revelation to be SO IMPORTANT.
If it is possible to lose your reward - as Jesus taught - then not all believers receive the same reward by default. They had experienced revival but did not press through and did no continue to cultivate a life in Jesus. They will living on the past memory of their spiritual vigor.
Session 03 The Church of Pergamos This church was corrected for 2 things 1: COMPROMISING & 2. Having those that were living a clean life YET PASSIVE AND TOLERANT ABOUT WRONG IDEAS BEING PROCLAIMED IN THEIR COMMUNITIES THAT EMPOWERED OTHER PEOPLE TO WALK IN SIN.
I want for you to gain all the Jesus has for you, but that won't happen by accident - not even for the believer. These are the words of JESUS HIMSELF!
Session 02 The Church of Smyrna I want for you to gain all the Jesus has for you, but that won't happen by accident - not even for the believer. These are the words of JESUS HIMSELF!
THIS IS 1 OF 2 CHURCHES THAT RECEIVED NO CORRECTION!
The message to the church in Smyrna Revelation 2:8-17
