Commands of Christ: 94

Hear what the Spirit says to the churches. 

“Whoever has ears ought to hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the victor I will give the right to eat from the tree of life that is in the garden of God.”  Revelation 2:7

“Whoever has ears ought to hear what the Spirit says to the churches. The victor shall not be harmed by the second death.”  Revelation 2:11

“Whoever has ears ought to hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the victor I shall give some of the hidden manna; I shall also give a white amulet upon which is inscribed a new name, which no one knows except the one who receives it.”  Revelation 2:17

“To the victor, who keeps to my ways until the end, I will give authority over the nations.  He will rule them with an iron rod. Like clay vessels will they be smashed,  just as I received authority from my Father. And to him I will give the morning star. Whoever has ears ought to hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”  Revelation 2:26-29

“The victor will thus be dressed in white, and I will never erase his name from the book of life but will acknowledge his name in the presence of my Father and of his angels. Whoever has ears ought to hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”  Revelation 3:5-6

“The victor I will make into a pillar in the temple of my God, and he will never leave it again. On him I will inscribe the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from my God, as well as my new name. Whoever has ears ought to hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”  Revelation 3:12-13

“I will give the victor the right to sit with me on my throne, as I myself first won the victory and sit with my Father on his throne. Whoever has ears ought to hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”  Revelation 3:21-22

These of course are the commands of Jesus in His letters to the seven churches in the book of Revelation.  Each of these commands gives a promise to those who are victorious in following Him.  To those who persevere.  To those who listen to the Spirit.  These are for our encouragement and motivation.  There will be tests.  There will be difficult days.  It will all be worth it in the end.  The rewards are worth the sacrifice.  Hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
