40 Days To Save America Fast & Prayer - Day 24
I, John, your brother and fellow partaker in the tribulation and kingdom and perseverance which are in Jesus, was on the island called Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus. I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like the sound of a trumpet, saying, “Write in a book what you see, and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea.” Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands; and in the middle of the lampstands I saw one like a son of man, clothed in a robe reaching to the feet, and girded across His chest with a golden sash."
In Revelation, you see Jesus walking among seven lampstands. The lampstands symbolize the church, and the fact that seven (number of completeness) were present signify ALL the churches were represented. The lampstands were portable and held small oil lamps. Note that the lampstands in themselves could not produce light, but the oil they contained produced the light. Like never before the church must be filled with the oil of the Spirit to shine brightly in a dark nation that disregards God’s Word as its guide.
Pray for every church to boldly determine to be the trend setter for righteousness in their sphere of influence.
