Last (Days) Church - If He Overcomes (LG76)

Rev 3:21  To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne

Whoever can overcome the sins committed by the Laodicean church, he can sit with our Lord on His throne to become king. Just try to imagine how you can become a king in your own state or country. It is an impossible dream.

Only the royalties qualify to become the king and even among the royalties, only the eldest son or the most suitable candidate is made king. We thank God our heavenly Father, for He has made us to be His sons in Christ Jesus, so that we have this opportunity to be a king in the kingdom of heaven.

Psalm 89:14  Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; Mercy and truth go before Your face.

Brethren, only those who are completely righteous and just can sit on His throne. Also, he must be found to be full of mercy and truth. With the help of the Holy Spirit it will not be difficult, if only we are willing and also have the faith to see Him slowly transforming us into His image.

1 Cor 9:24  Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it.

In this world we have to compete against one another (causing strife, hatred, contention, jealousy, etc.) in order to receive the crown.

2 Tim 4:8  Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.

We thank God that we are not competing against one another to receive the crown but to encourage one another to hate the sins, snares and things of this world until we love His appearing.

Rev 17:14  "These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”

We thank our Lord Jesus Christ the Lamb of God, that He is the King of kings and Lord of lords so that we can become one of His many kings or lords, who are the called, chosen, and faithful.

1 Cor 6:3  Do you not know that we shall judge angels? How much more, things that pertain to this life?

Brethren, let us encourage one another to forsake the worldly riches and reach out to the eternal reward of becoming His kings to help Him to rule over all His subjects including angels. To God be the glory.
