Wake Up!

Moving onto Revelation 3, we come to the letter to the church at Sardis. This is a great letter to read when you need some motivation. I have been there, this month, and some of these verses seemed written just to me. Sardis is another church filled with hard workers who are dead inside. God tells them He can see straight through them - through all of their service projects and committee meetings and programs for the children and youth. He sees through the fancy videos and coffee bars and bookstores... all of the building plans and fall fests... In the second verse, He says, "Up on your feet!" He can't be speaking physically, because they are obviously already on their feet physically, running around doing all this "busy work." Here, God speaks to the Spirit.

My Spirit hears Him. "Up on your feet! Take a deep breath! Maybe there's life in you yet."

This is their wake up call. Come on Sardis, remember Me? Remember what I told you and what My prophets told you? Remember the Message you are supposed to be working for?

This is their warning. Sardis, it is time to get out of the spiritual bed, get the metaphorical blankets from over your head. If you don't do this now, you will not get another chance. I will come back. I will surprise you with my return. You will be caught off guard and left out of the celebration. You will sleep through the very event you are supposed to be hoping and planning for. Only those of you who are truly seeking after Me will be in this parade, this festival to beat all "Fall Fests." We will march before God. We will march with Angels. And you?

You will be asleep.


Are your ears awake? Listen. Listen to the Wind Words, the Spirit blowing through the churches. (Rev 3:6)
