As we enter week 2 of our series on "The Seven Churches" in Revelation, Alan Stanley takes a look at the letter to the Church at Smyrna in Revelation 2:8-11.
Alan starts with a very brief overview of the purpose of the book of Revelation, before diving into our text for today. He takes a look back into Isaiah and challenges us to view how we can often try to take the place of God (play god) in our own lives. To put things into perspective, Alan looks at what it would have been like to live under the Roman Empire as the church of Smyrna at the time. Alan then looks at the church at Smyrna and the suffering they were warned of, and how this is relevant to the church today.
Recorded at the Hukanui Bible Church morning service on Sunday the 14th of February 2021 during the 10:00 am service.
