FRIDAY, August 27
Scripture: Revelation 3:7,8
The only church that Jesus did not speak to about justice or judgment was the church at Philadelphia. He brought them blessing. He gave them purpose and offered them an open door. He told them that their battle with the kingdom of darkness would end in the defeat of the counterfeit. He also promised them that if they persevered He would keep them from the hour of trial which would come on the whole world. Now if there was ever a motivation to be honest with the Word it comes from the church of Philadelphia, because the promise to be kept from the great trial that is coming on the whole earth is off the charts as possibly the greatest blessing that awaits at the end of the age! God help us be like Philadelphia.
