And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; Revelation 3:7
I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Revelation 3:8
Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Revelation 3:9
Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Revelation 3:10
Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Revelation 3:11
Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. Revelation 3:12
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. Revelation 3:13

Our Faith Is To Persevere

..Now this perseverance means more that just enduring. It’s more than just simply holding on to the end. That’s how a lot of people preach it – ‘ Just hold on to the end. ‘ Fine.. but God never leaves us like that. You see we get the idea that we’re in the hands of our heavenly Father who’s moulding us – perfecting us – we’re in His hands. The idea of enduring, persevering is that He’s the potter, we’re the clay and He’s moulding us. We have to hold on that. I’ve said this before – it’s like an archer who pulls back the cord.. as far as it will go.. needs that power for the arrow to hit the target. ‘ Our Faith Is To Persevere. ‘

This is what God is doing with us – stretching us until there’s no more to stretch – until the aim and purpose is in sight. ..The rapture which is the next great event for us is the promise we’ve been looking for. We’ve been promised that we’re not going through the Great Tribulation.

Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Revelation 3:10

God Has A Goal

We’re being stretched to almost breaking point for His purpose, for the goal so that we are there ready when that trumpet calls and He says – ‘ Come Up. ‘ – we are translated in the twinkling of an eye and meet the Lord in the air. I am convinced that’s what’s happening to us. We don’t always fully understand it but I was quickened by this.. It’s for His purpose, for His glory. When we’re ready He’ll let go and we’ll be caught away.I come back to the imagery of the Manchild – Revelation 12.

And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: Revelation 12:1
And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. Revelation 12:2
And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. Revelation 12:3
And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. Revelation 12:4
And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. Revelation 12:5

Where is the Dragon? Right there – not elsewhere trying to abort any others. He’s trying to destroy this work that God is working on, we know it in our own lives. We know the attacks.. the subtleties.. how he can come like an angel of light and so on. But God has got a goal make no bones about it. And that’s why we’re in need of perseverance right now. Let God’s hand deal with it!.. ..
