"Little Strength"


To the Church in Philadelphia
7 “To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write:
These are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open. 8 I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. 9 I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars—I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you. 10 Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.

Note the words - "I know that you have little strength". This tells me that we are going to witness some pretty horrendous stuff. Stuff that will horrify us - making us feel weak and ineffectual. Although I maintain that the letters to the churches in the book of Revelation are Middle East specific - the admonitions pertain to all. Maybe we are going to witness horrifying things that will almost drive us to drink. Weighed down by the cares of this world.

We must pray for strength, courage and guidance. Protection - spiritually, mentally and physically.

In Jesus' Name.
