•Jesus holds the angels in his right hand and walks among the churches!😮 Think about that!
“To the angel of the church of Ephesus write, ‘These things says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands:”
•…Lost their FIRST LOVE! They WERE captivated by the beauty and glory of Jesus. They were seeking and beholding Him. When JESUS NO LONGER was the MAIN ATTRACTION they fell from that first place of beholding Him. FOR THIS REASON He will REMOVE THEIR CHURCH from operating…unless…They REPENT and RETURN to their first love…JESUS AS THE MAIN ATTRACTION!
All the ministry and activities aren’t enough, they’re not the main thing. All the work, labor, serving, ministry, testing…that’s not what it’s about. Those are good things, but if JESUS isn’t the reason…be prepared to fall.
“Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have LEFT YOUR FIRST LOVE. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; REPENT and do the first works (beholding Jesus), or else I will come to you quickly and REMOVE your lampstand from its place—unless you REPENT.”
