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.
