Today we read the second chapter of Revelation and the last chapter of Micah.
Revelation 2 begins the message to the seven churches: Ephesus, the church that lost its first love; Smyrna, the church that stood firm even when it was persecuted; Pergamos, a church that looked good but compromised itself, and the church of Thyatira, a corrupted church, but with hope of repentance. These can be seen as seven historical churches, which they were, but also as seven types of churches as they exist today and through history. They can also be taken as seven states of the individual believer. However you take it, there is something in it for every believer, even today.
Micah 7. The prophet expressed deep sorrow for Israel’s sins, coupled with the hope that the nation will rise again and that God will forgive Israel.
