Scripture: Revelation 19:14
Revelation 19:14 says, “And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.” Follow is the Greek word, ak-ol-oo-theh-o and it means to ‘join as a disciple, or to side with,’ and it raises the issue of whose side are we on? Are we actually on the enemy’s side by extending mercy to people God wants to cut off? Are we enabling the ungodly through unsanctified mercy by being Priestly while God wants us to be Kingly? That is a question we have to answer because the traditions of man in Revelation 2 make the church of Thyatira vulnerable because they refuse to restrain evil and are caught in a doctrine of passivity where they enable evil by refusing to confront it and bring the judicial Hand of God against it. If there was ever a picture of today’s church, that would have to be it.
