December 11, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

Today we read the second chapter of Revelation and the last chapter of Micah.

December 11: Revelation 2, Micah 7 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

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.
