"Knowing God... Making God Known"
 


Text: Revelation 2:12-17

I. The Identity of the Lord Jesus-His identity revealed in verse 12 clearly points in context to His authority as the judge.

II. The Knowledge of the Lord Jesus:
     A. I know your environment.
     B. I know your loyalty.
          1. Loyalty to My name.
               Lord Jesus not Lord Caesar.
          2. Loyalty to My faith.
               Commitment to central truths of the Christian faith.

III. The Admonition of the Lord Jesus
     A. The Doctrine of Balaam-the teaching toward compromise.
     B. The Doctrine of the Nicolaitans-what does the Bible give us?
          1. The meaning-the power over  the people.  
          2. The thoughts of the Lord-He hated the deeds of the Nicolaitans.  

IV. The Demand of the Lord Jesus
         Turn now not in due time!

V. The Promises of the Lord Jesus
       A. The Hidden Manna-the satisfaction that is Jesus! Knowing Him brings to us numerous blessings.

 B. The White Stone-in Roman culture was awarded to the victor in a contest. A white stone with the athletes name on it served as a ticket to a special banquet.   

   C. A New Name-something no one knows but Jesus and the recepient.  “This name given to the Christian symbolizes the personal heritage of the glories of heaven.”                         John Walvoord

Text: Ephisians 3:13-21

What is the greatest support we have as believers in Christ? It's the Holy Spirit.  In Ephesians 3 we see a prayer of the Apostle Paul.


I. Bow the Knee (vs.4) - It should be a regular habit.


II. The Request (vs.16) - "to be strengthened with the power through his Spirit in the inner man."

   - we need people to pray for us and that prayer should be for the strength of the Holy Spirit.

III. The Benediction (vs. 20) -  "He who is able"

   - God's power in the believer is unlimited and beyond comprehension.

   - Who deserves the glory?- God, not man no matter their position.
