In this 9th lesson from the book of Revelation, we are going to discuss the letter to the church in Philadelphia in chapter 3:7-13.
The local Jews, in fear of losing their status with Rome, closed the doors on the Christians and, in turn, on their own relationship with God. For this reason, Jesus calls them a "synagogue of Satan."
The commendation for the church in Philadelphia is due to their perseverant faith in Christ. They are encouraged by Jesus to not see their circumstances and obstacles, but rather as opportunities. The modern church should also persevere while finding opportunities, rather than obstacles, in our circumstances.
