Messages From The Risen Savior To The Seven Churches is a message of meditation based on the Bible and written by Maria Sandberg
There are some beautiful messages of love sent by Christ to His people on earth, in the second and third chapters of the last book in the Bible, which perhaps you may have overlooked, passing them by as not addressed to you; or, as containing things too difficult for you to understand.
You may have been accustomed to look upon the book of Revelation as a difficult Prophetic writing, and therefore you may have missed these wonderful messages of your risen and ascended Savior, and also those glimpses of Heaven which other parts of the book disclose to the reader.
But if you will look at the opening verses of the book, you will find that there is a particular blessing promised to those who read this prophecy: "Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near!" Revelation 1:3
I purpose then to tell you something about the beautiful messages sent by your risen Lord to His Churches. But do you understand the meaning of the word Church? It does not mean the building where Christians meet; but it means a company of believers in Jesus, who meet together to pray to Him, and to read His Word.
This may be done in a school-room; in a mansion; in a cottage; or in a sick chamber. Wherever two or three are gathered together in Christ's name, there is a Church, and there He has promised to be in the midst of them. What I want you to feel is, that when you meet as we do now, we may consider ourselves as a little Church, over which Jesus presides, and among whom He walks. God does not exclusively dwell in places made with hands, but in the true believer's heart, by His Spirit.
