Laodicea – the Modern Church Under Judgement of God
What does Laodicea really mean? Lets take a look at the definition and then what God has to say about the Church of Laodicea. Laodicea is the last church before the Second Coming of Christ to take His people to live with Him forever.
Laodicea – judgement on or to the people (Strong’s Concordance 1349, 2992, 2994).
Revelation 3:14-22 (King James Version)
14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write ; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17 Because thou sayest , I am rich, and increased with goods , and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich ; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed , and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear ; and anoint thine eyes with eye salve, that thou mayest see .
19 As many as I love , I rebuke and chasten : be zealous therefore, and repent .
20 Behold , I stand at the door, and knock : if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come into him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame , and am set down with my Father in his throne.
22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
