Revelation 4:1
Sunday, 10 March 2019
Duration: 1 hr 1 mins 22 secs
The Rapture .. the calling UP of the Church ... "After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking to me, saying, 'Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.'" (Revelation 4:1) We are to "comfort one another" (Hebrews 4:18) with this knowledge!
Revelation 3:14-22 (part 2)
Sunday, 03 March 2019
Duration: 1 hr 5 mins 43 secs
Pastor Rit finishes his teaching on the Church of the Laodiceans. Laodicea was so rich and prominent that they were very prideful and in need of nothing (v17). Even so, Jesus implores them to purchase refined gold from Him. Thankfully Jesus says, "As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten"! May we all "hear what the Spirit says to the churches".
Revelation 3:14-22 (part 1)
Sunday, 24 February 2019
Duration: 1 hr 5 mins 36 secs
The Church of the Laodiceans can be mapped to the Apostate Church of today. What is the Apostate Church? Jesus says, "I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot." They are lukewarm and Jesus will vomit them out of His mouth! These are the Christian make-believers who are so prevalent in churches today. We must take heed to ourselves and make sure we are not numbered with the lukewarm - we are to be radical for Jesus Christ!

The "homework" Pastor Rit asked us to do is to watch the movie "American Gospel: Christ Alone" (IMDB). It can be found on Amazon Video, Vimeo and other online movie sources.
Revelation 3:7-13
Sunday, 17 February 2019
Duration: 54 mins 22 secs
The Church in Philadelphia is the only church told that it will not have to suffer "the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world". This is because the Church in Philadelphia kept (guarded) the Word of God! We also see that the Church in Philadelphia is a small church and has "a little strength". This is the remnant that exists today. As the Western Church goes the way of Sardis and Laodicea, the true Body of Christ (the remnant) will receive the promise given to the Church in Philadelphia - to escape the Tribulation.
Revelation 3:1-6
Sunday, 10 February 2019
Duration: 1 hr 0 mins 12 secs
Revelation 3:1
Sunday, 03 February 2019
Duration: 59 mins 4 secs
Even though The Church at Sardis had a lot of activity, it was a spiritually dead church. Sardis itself was a very wealth city and because of this they would tend to not lean on the God of their Salvation for their needs. This is very similar to Western Protestantism. Pastor Rit covers the first verse in the Letter to Sardis and reviews other accounts in the Bible where the Spirit of God left (spiritual death) but the people didn't even realize because they were so focused on themselves.
