Jesus has clear expectations for His local churches. With hair as white as snow and eyes of flaming fire, Jesus fills the pages of the book of Revelation. In the first century, seven local churches in modern-day Turkey received a personal word from Jesus. In this message, we’re introduced to what He thinks of those churches as well as the qualities of our churches today.

While in exile on Patmos. The apostle John was given a preview of the future that glimpse ahead was written down and became what we call the book of Revelation. Here, the Jesus who will one day return to earth is depicted in power and glory.

And we find in this book words from Jesus to seven churches of the first century stay with us from Chicago. This is The Moody Church. Our weekly service of worship and teaching with pastor Erwin Blitzer today will hear the first of eight messages on what Jesus thinks of his church.

Later in our broadcast Erwin Luzerne will speak on a vision of Jesus, Minister of music Gerald Edmonds comes now to open today's service we gather this morning to honor the Lord Jesus Christ to bring glory to his name. That's why were here were here to listen to a message that reminds us of God's word to listen to music but also for our hearts to be united with the Almighty. I like to look in your bulletin because we have placed him. This hymn is new.

In fact, it has been written and orchestrated by one of our orchestra members. We don't normally do this but because it's a rather momentous occasion for Joshua Joshua Evanovich, would you stand is in the trombone section back here were grateful for his ministry with us. The hymn will be sung by the choir. Of course, and especially we like you to sing verses one as you see, and then burst to will have the choir sing it by themselves and then verses three and four will all join together. Tim will be helping us to make sure they were all together and even the congregation has activist earlier.

So thank you for joining us now may we put our attention toward God the Almighty. Let stand is weeks.

Yes, amen Joyce I want you to just remain standing will do it a little differently this morning for just a moment and if you could been down at the same time and take your hymnal and turn to number 14 that actually is going to be read to us by Tom Johnson and Amy Lily. But be prepared to sing together at number 15. No other name but the name of Jesus and then hymn number 45 Crown him with many crowns and dad will continue to stand by the way, until we have sung the course in Christ alone as you look through the bulletin. You'll notice that our emphasis today is on indeed, Jesus the name above all names.

So let's pray together and after we have prayed.

We shall listen to this reading about the names of Jesus and then we shall sing together. Number 15. Join me as we pray, and our father we pray that you show clear from our minds.

All else that we might give glory to you alone and that these moments may be, in some sense sacred, set apart because they are moments of corporate worship.

They are moments when we come into your presence with great joy even as we have some but also with great anticipation to hear your voice through your word and teach us to honor your son in a better way. We pray in Jesus blessed name. Amen. Who Jesus hears the word.

The word was God. His name is Emmanuelle God with us. Where do we find him, recognize him in the Scriptures is revealed throughout the Bible.

He is described in Genesis. Jesus is the round Abraham's altar in Exodus is the Passover lamb in Leviticus is the high priest in numbers he's the cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. In Deuteronomy the city of our refuge in Joshua is the scarlet thread out Rahab's window in judging our charge in Ruth, he is our kinsman redeemer in first and second Samuel, he's our trusted profit and in Kings and Chronicles. He's our reigning King in Ezra. He is our faithful scribe did Nehemiah. He's the rebuilder of everything that is broken and in Astor he is the Mordechai sitting faithful and thinking in general. He's not redeemer that in Psalms and I shall not want. In Proverbs and Ecclesiastes and the song of Solomon is the beautiful bride in Isaiah.

He's the suffering servant in Jeremiah, Lamentations is Jesus as the weeping prophet Ezekiel is the wonderful four-phase demand I did.

Daniel is the fourth man in the midst of a fiery furnace in Hosea, he is my love is forever faithful Joe ties assessed with the Holy Spirit is our burden bearer. In Obadiah, our Savior, and Jonah, he is the great foreign missionary takes the word of God into all the world in my khaki is the messenger with beautiful feet in name is the avenger in her backpack. He is the watchman that is ever praying for revival in Zephaniah is the Lord might say is the restorer of our lost heritage in Zachariah. He is our fountain in Malachi, he is the son of righteousness healing in his wing it. Matthew now I Christ at this time of the living God. In Mark he is the miracle worker in the loop.

He is the Son of Man, and in John is the door by which every one of us must enter ask. He is the shining light years to Saul on the road to Damascus in Romans is our justifier in verse our resurrection in second Corinthians hours sin bearer in Galatians, he redeemed us from the law. In Ephesians, he is not mentioned in Philippians, he supplies our every need, and in Colossians ease the fullness of the Godhead hobbling in first and second baloney and CSR soon coming in first and second mediator between God and man.

In Titus is our blessed hope in Philemon and in Hebrews ease the blood everlasting covenant name on first and second Peter second John is Jesus who has tenderness on things in Revelation charts nine. The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show to his servants the things that soon must take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who bore witness to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that he saw. Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear and to keep what is written in it for the time is near John to the seven churches that are in Asia.

Grace to you and peace from him who is and was and do is to come in from the seven spirits who are before his throne and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth. To him who loves us and this freed us from our sins by his blood and made us a kingdom of priests to his God and father to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him.

And all tribes of the earth will wail on account of him. Even so.

Amen. I am the Alpha and the Omega, says the Lord God who is and was and Wister, the Almighty. Hi John, your brother and partner in the tribulation and the kingdom and the patient endurance that are in Jesus, was on the island called Patmos on account 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 a trumpet, saying, write what you see in a book and send it to the seven churches to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamum and to fire Tyra under Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea. Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking to me and on turning I saw seven golden lampstands, and in the midst of the lampstands one like a Son of Man load with a long rope and with a golden sash around his chest. The hairs of his head were white like wool, as white as snow.

His eyes were like a flame of fire. His feet were like burnished bronze, refined in a furnace, and his voice was like the roar of many waters. In his right hand he held seven stars from his mouth came a sharp two-edged sword, and his face was like the sun shining in full strength when I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. But he laid his right hand on me, saying, fear not, I am the first and the last in the living one.

I died, and behold I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and Hades right.

Therefore, the things that you have seen those that are those that are to take place after this. As for the mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand and the seven golden lampstands. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches in the seven lampstands are the seven churches during the next few moments.

I want you to be thinking about to question first question is this what does Jesus think of Moody Church and then the second question which is related is simply this. What does Jesus think of you. How are you doing I could even throw in 1/3 question and that is this how good a listener are you are you able to hear the voice of God by begin today with no mission. He was one of the early emperors in the great Roman Empire and he was one of the first emperors who demanded Emperor worship. He wanted all of the Christians in his realm as along with everyone else to worship him and to honor him as a God. The Christians of course couldn't do that Christianity has always clashed with political regimes that are antithetical to the sovereignty of Jesus, who is King of Kings and Lord of lords. As a result of some of the persecutions there was an island by the name of Patmos.

It's about 10 miles long and 6 miles wide, very rocky, not too many people were able to survive on Patmos. But it was on that island that John the apostle was exiled to probably to work in some minds some primitive minds very very hard work that the Romans had and that's where the exiles were taken to do some work for the Empire was in that context that John had the experience. I hope that your Bible is open to Revelation chapter 1 Revelation chapter 1 and I'm going to pick it up there at verse nine he says I John, your brother and partner in the tribulation and the kingdom and patient endurance in Jesus. I'm here because of persecution and I am your brother. We are off. After all, all brothers and sisters in Jesus and John is a partner in Jesus and a partner in suffering which the early church actually always expect they expected suffering as a Christian and he goes on to say in the text.

He says I was in the spirit. I'm glad it's capitalized because that is the Holy Spirit he was in the spirit God gave him a vision of things that will one could ever know or Dick, unless God gave it to him.

You read the book of Revelation and you know that no man, no matter how creative, no man could have come up with the book of Revelation, and made the predictions that the book of Revelation makes so John says I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day could be the first day of the week, maybe maybe also a reference to the day of the Lord, the time when God is going to wrap up history and maybe what John is saying I was able to see into the Lord's day the final triumph of Jesus over history and he says I was in the spirit and suddenly I heard behind me a voice like the sound of the trumpet in the Old Testament. The trumpet was always a command. That's the way armies went to battle when you heard the trumpet you knew that you are being commanded in your attention was necessary since I heard the voice like the sound of a trumpet, saying, write what you see in a book and send it to the church is to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum fire Tyra Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea. If you see these on a map and they're all in Turkey, you can begin with Ephesus and then if you go counterclockwise in an arc will end up with the latest Seo all the seven churches right what I'm going to tell you and to send it to the seven churches and went back. John then sees a vision of Jesus before we look into this vision briefly. I want to ask you a question today. Just between you and me who is Jesus to you today. Many people have what I call the Christmas Jesus the Christmas Jesus is Jesus as a baby and you're a Christmas Christian Jesus and the baby at Christmas and you kind of love it. We think for example of Simeon, who held the baby Jesus in his hands and their some churches that actually have a prayer based on what Simeon said and too many people.

Jesus is the baby of the manger.

There are others for whom Jesus is the rabbi, Jesus is the teacher.

He is the one who instructs people and gives the wonderful sermon that we call the sermon on the Mount.

That's who Jesus is, to some people and then for others say he's more than that.

He's the Easter Jesus is the Jesus who died and rose again and for then the Jesus is the Savior, and well he might be, but in the book of Revelation, Jesus is a lot more than that he is all that and more. He is the judge and that's who we look at today. Jesus, the returning triumphant judge. Now let's look at the text. John says that I turned to see the boys send I saw seven golden lampstands pause there. What are the lampstands.

Verse 20 Jesus explains it and says that the lampstands are the seven churches.

Now why is it that you have the number seven. Yet many different churches in that part of the world. Why number seven. It's because the number seven is a number of completeness.

God says these seven churches. I believe that they are representative churches of all the churches that have ever existed. I believe that one of these seven churches is best represented that Moody Church best represents one of these seven churches, every church has the characteristics of many of the churches, but predominantly one. In fact, there are those who believe that actually the seven churches even represent seven periods of church history. So God says whatever you need to know about a church, whatever kind of church you have, you can find it in chapters 2 and three where I write the letters to the seven churches, and where is Jesus found in this you'll notice that he is among the lampstands I saw seven golden lampstands, and in the midst of the lampstands one like unto the Son of Man.

This is reminiscent of Daniel who predicted the coming of the Messiah and Daniel said I saw on the night visions, and behold with the clouds of heaven, there came one like a son of man, and he came to the ancient of days and was presented before him and to him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, and all people, nations, languages should serve him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom, one that shall not be destroyed. This is a picture of Jesus the Messiah, the God man and on earth he was found crucified between two criminals. Now is the resurrected judge. He stands among the lampstands. He is standing among the churches and the implications for us are overwhelming. Know what I like to do in the next few moments is to move through very quickly. This description of Jesus nine different ways in phrases nine different phrases are used to describe the triumphant Jesus the Jesus who is going to return again and let's look at the text it says and then the midst of the lampstands one like unto the Son of Man, clothed with a long robe when he was on earth the gamblers they cast lots for his role, such as it was, well, those days are over and now he is the triumphant one and he is dressed in elegance and he is dressed like a cane and no one. No one is bickering over his role, but you'll notice that the text goes on to say that there was a sash around his chest. It says in the 19th chapter of John verse two that when Pilate was ridiculing Jesus. The Bible says that they put a robe on him and they mocked him, and said you're the king of the Jews and they spit on him and they pulled out his beard. No one is doing that now.

The sash that he was wearing around his chest was symbolic of kingship and no one is mocking him. No one is making fun of this portrait of Jesus and then we go on and it says that his head and his hair were white like wool, like snow, we think, for example a bad head which had a crown of thorns and it is that head that blood splattered down his face when he was so cruelly mocked and ridiculed. Now he has a head that is white.

The hair is white symbol of dignities symbol of power and this had that the Bible says.

When Jesus was on earth he had nowhere to lay his head. This had now is striking in its appearance and Jesus is standing in utter triumph and dignity and yes you can clap if you want I now notice also that the Scriptures goes on and it says in verse four. Excuse me. It says in the next verse is actually my fourth point, it says that his eyes were like a flame of if you could have seen his eyes when he was on earth. Sometimes they were filled with tears. Sometimes they were red with the strain of lack of sleep and now his eyes are like a flame of fire seeing through everyone. It's a symbol of omniscience.

I remember all of us as parents of sometimes said to her children. I don't remember saying it but I remember it was said to me, I can just see right through you. I can just see right through you will. Thankfully, I was glad that my parents couldn't see right through me, though sometimes they claim to. But Jesus sees right through the Bible says that all things are naked and open onto the eyes of him with whom we have to do. There is nothing that is hidden site want you to see Jesus today looking at you with eyes that are piercing like fire and he sees the hidden sins. He sees the secret plans he sees you in your loneliness and when you're alone and when you're with others that he not only sees your body but your mind and your heart Jesus here. His eyes are like a flame of fire says in verse 15 his feet were like bronze glowing or burnished bronze. These were, after all the feet that walk the dusty roads of Palestine. They were the feet that walked along and then eventually were nail pierced when he was put in great humiliation on the cross. These feed to now our feet of judgment, and these are the feet about whom it says in the Old Testament is going to support the been from of old and from everlasting. These feet are ones that if you could see. You could not absorb it into your soul. As Jesus walks among the candlesticks observing what the churches are doing and then it says the voice like the voice of many waters when he was on earth he sometimes whispered there in the upper room. There was that discussion between Peter and John, wondering who was going to betray him, and John was of course leaning on the chest of Jesus as the disciples arrange themselves actually on the floor. The way in which we see the last supper painted is really not historically accurate as they were there. Jesus so whispered and that the Scripture says that he sometimes cried up to God with long crying and tears onto him that was able to save him from death, and he was heard but this voice which often times now was not heard is like the voice of many waters on at least two occasions in my life I have been to Niagara Falls now if you go to Niagara Falls could I say it humbly. Don't be satisfied with seeing the American side of the falls. You have to go to the Canadian falls and when you see those hundreds of tons of water every second going over that you if you're standing next to someone you can't talk to them it only mouthed the words, because the rush and the roar of the water is so overwhelming and now he who was not often heard on earth is heard from heaven, and no one can ignore his voice because his voice is thunderous and powerful, and then the text goes on to say that on his right hand, the right hand which on earth had a spike nails that were put through it. Now he has in his right hand. Notice that there in the text. Seven stars and what are the seven stars. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches. In fact, next time.

As we look into the story of Ephesus to the angel of the church of Ephesus write very probably. It was a messenger that's another way to translate the word angel. It may also refer to the bishop and I say this hesitantly, or the lead pastor of the church and I've been meditating on this now for more than a week and that those leaders are in Jesus Christ's right hand. That's where the seven stars are because it says the seven stars are the main of the seven churches. So there's the nail pierced and now glorified holding the churches and holding the leaders of the churches in that nail pierced hand.

The text goes on and it says that out of his mouth came a two edged sword, a sharp sharp two-edged sword. Oh oftentimes his mouth was swollen because of crying and tears when he was here on earth. Now we see this picture of Jesus in absolute triumph and we notice that there is this sword coming out of his mouth. A sharp two edged sword was the kind of sword that was used with both hands and totally lethal and devastating and that comes out of the mouth of Jesus is able pastor looks or is this Jesus, the meek and mild Jesus. This is the meek and mild Jesus as judge is returning King while Scripture says in first Thessalonians, that when Jesus comes he will come in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and elsewhere it says people shall be slain by the sword of his mouth while this is Jesus. You'll notice that it says his face.

Now let's talk about his faith on earth. The Bible says that his face was more disfigured than that of any other man beaten to a pulp. Yes, the beard plucked out, slapped it with.

We all remember the movie Mel Gibson's movie the passion of the Christ. That's what he went through greatly humiliated in great pain.

I now now the Bible says and I saw his face and it was like the sun in full strength. There it is shining in a blaze of eternal glory. That's the face of the Redeemer as judge and disking. John realized that he was in the presence of infinite knowledge, he realized that he was in the presence of infinite power, he realized that he was in the presence of infinite holiness. So he did what any rational person would do in that situation, he fell down. The Scripture says in verse 17, I fell at his feet as though dead Spurgeon the great 19th century preacher from England. The said better to be dead at the feet of the triumphant Christ than to be alive.

Anywhere else and if you and I caught a glimpse of Jesus like John the saw him. We also would fall down and say this is the king. This is the Lord. This is the eternal judge you look at Scripture and you discover that this is what always happens to people who came in contact with God, Job said, I have heard of the by the hearing of the ear, but now mine eyes sees that you therefore I up for myself in dust and in ashes. I live before God in humiliation and prayer.

Isaiah he says I have seen the King, the Lord of hosts. Therefore I abhor myself this is the natural position of any rational person in the presence of God and I find this very interesting because we have to visualize it. By the way, I one time wondered whether or not there had been a painting made of Jesus like this, but I realize that that would've been a mistake for us to find it and even show it because it would be so inadequate just like my words today are totally in adequate to describe what John saw, but the Bible says that when John was there as it were, dead that Jesus took his right hand.

Now this is the hand with which he holds the seven stars I thought to myself that he put them down in order to put his hand on Jon. I don't think so because remember, it is Jesus and impossible things are very possible with the creator of the sun, the moon, the stars and all things.

But the Bible says that Jesus took his right hand, the one that had the seven stars, and he placed it on John, what an act of kindness. I said, do not fear. He said John I've got good news. You don't have to fear death because I am he that was dead in them alive time Jesus who triumphed over death and you don't have to fear in eternity because I have the keys of death and of Hades and so is that this John who leaned on the chest of Jesus at the Last Supper falls before him in worship and overwhelming adoration and Jesus kindly says don't be afraid if you're with me you can handle the future. I have the key of death and of Hades. Milton said that the reason that Satan rebelled, is that he would rather be king in the hell than a servant in heaven.

What a mistake. Lucifer made because there are no kings in hell in hell.

Lucifer is not the torment tour is the torment to you will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

It's always a bad idea to fight God.

But Jesus that I have the keys of death and of Hades. I'm the one that determines when people go in and then where they go when they do go in. I determine there is eternal everlasting destiny.

Where does that leave us as a church. Please notice today my dear friend that Jesus stands today amid the candlesticks.

I want you to visualize Jesus here from about 8 o'clock in the morning at Moody Church. I want you to visualize him going down the aisles.

He's checking to see whether the ushers are faithful, whether or not there on time is there to see the Sunday school teachers and the ABF leaders as to whether or not there being faithful to the word and faithful to their flock. He's there looking at the Parkers he's there checking us out. He's listening to our music made ever glorify him. He's listening to the word that is being preached and Jesus if you ask them now. Of course you know that he is everywhere because he is God, but he is a localized deed say where do I spend my Sunday mornings I go to church to because I observed the faithfulness of God's people. The double standard people who would perhaps never be late to work.

Nonetheless, in different regarding the time when they come to church all those things are observed because Jesus is here. How precious is the church to Jesus. The Scripture says he bought it with his own blood.

That's how precious it is and you when you read chapters 2 and three as we well as we go through this series, you'll notice that Jesus rebukes the church, he says to the church in Ephesus is will learn next week. You've left your first love.

And if you do not repent, I will take out your candlestick from its place a few years ago we were in Ephesus there is no church in Ephesus. One of the most sobering things you will hear from me today is simply this, you can go to all the seven churches which are in Turkey today we send camera crews there because they look at the church is archaeologically and look at the history, but there is no Christian church speak of the candlesticks had been removed.

The fact that Jesus said I will build my church is no guarantee that it is automatic. If we don't hear his voice are candlestick could be removed from its place.

You know the death of a church is a very very sad thing.

I think to myself that when a church closes its doors. Doesn't that hurt you in your heart church moves from the inner city to the suburbs because the demographics change. What are we saying about the triumph of Jesus where the need is the greatest or you have churches that sell their buildings to other religions and I think to myself, you know, if that other religion can do it and can make a go of it where the people of God. Sometimes it's because the church was unwilling to adapt unwilling to change its focus.

It lost its vision.

The candlestick is removed.

I think that whenever a church is close to that the leaders of the church on a cola funeral they ought invite the whole evangelical communion in the whole evangelical community and then give us lots of the Kleenex boxes so that we can weep and mourn the candlestick has been taken out. Let us not take for granted the gift God has given us here at The Moody Church don't ever take it for granted is able is Jesus like Santa Claus going through trying to find things that you're doing wrong.

These audits list and he's checking it twice. No tell you that the primary reason that Jesus is here observing us is because you not only judges his people because he wants to reward us were going to notice in the seven churches over and over again. He says things like this to him who overcomes I will grant to sit with me on my throne, even as I overcame and sat with my father on his throne. Jesus is saying I want to reward you in ways that will blow your mind. If you're faithful to me and if you are an over comer. Now I'm going to take a different interpretation of that phrase that were going to encounter seven times in the next seven messages because there are some people who teach all Christians are over comers.

Yes, we are in Christ. I don't believe that all Christians are over comers.

That's why Jesus has a general letter to the church and that is always calling out individual key or we could say she who overcomes to them.

I'll give this promise. That's why I asked at the beginning of this message. Think about first of all, Moody Church and then think about you will talk about Moody Church and we may have some disagreement as to which church in the book of Revelation. Best fits us.

But in the midst of it all, all comes down to you is down last night before I fell asleep again quickly read chapters 2 and three of those seven letters and I noticed seven times always said he who has an ear to hear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches because this is the reality.

There is some of you during this series of messages who are going to hear and it's going to be transforming for you as I hope it is going to be me will hear the spirit. Call us out and speak to us, but there are others sadly who Jost won't get it delivered the same words, but they will not respond because they're not hearing it for themselves. By the spirit so you have an assignment in the assignment very briefly. Is this I want you to read chapters 2 and three.

I want you to read it over and over again, ask yourself what letter best fits, Moody Church, what would Jesus say to us if he were writing to us today and then I want to ask you to read it for another reason. What is God saying to you are you and over comer. Is he appealing to you and say but to him who overcomes, I'm going to bless you in ways that you could not possibly have been vision are you going to do that whatever men build set. Augustine then will destroy. I say let's get on with the business of building the church because the gates of Hades ultimately cannot prevail against it. God has given us a great opportunity here at The Moody Church.

We are on the brink of what could be a great time of growth, both in depth and in numbers with the new Christian life center, but the question is will we hear the spirits voice or will we not, I conclude today with a question for you. By the way, so who is Jesus for you today.

You believe in the Christmas Jesus Jesus the baby. You believe in Jesus, the rabbi, the great teacher whose sayings are famous you believe in Jesus as Savior. I hope you do, but if you do not see him as judge. If you do not see him as coming King. You don't have a full picture of who it is that we love and who it is that we worship lettuce this week fall at his feet as though dead. We are in the presence of the triumphant victorious Jesus and let us pray in our father we ask in Jesus name that you might take these words in burn them into our souls. For those who have never trusted Christ as Savior. They have never believed on him. They know only the Jesus of Christmas and the Jesus the teacher show them that Jesus is saying. And for those of us who know that he is also judge, help us to worship him in new ways. Help us to understand that eventually every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that he is Lord, to the glory of God the father and because of that we pray may we confess him Lord of our life right now. Whatever God is. Talk to you about. Would you say it speak to him right now. Take our frail words, O Lord God, we pray and translate them into heartfelt prayers because we do love Jesus Savior and coming King. Pray in his name on today's Moody Church.
