||LETTERS TO THE CHURCH
is a study by Sandy Simpson of Revelation 1:9 - 3:22 or the seven letters
to the Churches. Following is the preface to the book:
This book is taken from a bible study series I taught in 2000. I wrote this study because of the times we are living in as Christians. I believe that the letters to the seven churches in Revelation are God’s way of preparing Christians, not only to live a life pleasing to Him, but to prepare the end time church for the trials, tribulations and persecutions ahead. The fact that the letters to the churches precede the Revelation of end time events is no coincidence. It contains many precepts to enable end time believers to be “overcomers”. We don’t just overcome automatically by virtue of being children of God through Jesus Christ. We must keep the Faith once for all delivered to the saints through the coming trials of our faith. Whether or not the Church is raptured before, during or taken at the end of the Tribulation, we must be prepared. Even now the great apostasy is upon the churches. Christians are being tested to see if they will demonstrate their love for the Lord by keeping His commands amidst a plethora of false teachers, false prophets, false apostles and false Christs. Apostate heretics, who have taken over pulpits, airwaves, television, mission work, bookstores, and music shelves did not take God by surprise. He warned us about them long ago through Apostles like John. The divisive deceivers of today are there as a test for true believers to see if we will separate ourselves from them, and a judgment upon those who won’t—of this I am convinced. We cannot rid the TV of heretics, but we can rebuke them, avoid them, separate ourselves from them, warn others about them, and pull people from the fires of their disobedience. The letters to the seven churches are a fitting manual for the Revelation Christian. All the precepts are there to help us keep the faith, hold on to the good, stay in sound doctrine, and reach out to those who are perishing. It is my hope and prayer that this book will help the reader to be an “overcomer”.
Endorsements on the back cover are as follows:
“This book is so timely for the church which has allowed the tares to overtake the wheat. The lack of biblical integrity in modern evangelism has produced a church that resembles the world. It is no longer sanctified and thus has lost its impact on society. The biblical applications and exhortations for Christian leaders and lay people in Letters To The Church are needed to reform the church.”
Mike Gendron, Proclaiming the Gospel, www.pro-gospel.org
“In the not-too-distant future we will see the revelations of Jesus given to John all completely fulfilled. As we enter this time period it behooves us to have “ears that hear”. In our day of apostasy in the church we must heed the words of Heb. 3:7, 15 & 4:7: “Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts”. In his exposition on the letter to the churches, Sandy focuses our attention on how to be overcomers in this difficult age. May God help us to be “doers” and not only hearers.”
