For God's Sake Listen
Formerly titled The Jesus Letters
For God's Sake Listen takes the seven letters to the churches in Revelation and lifts them out of their ancient setting, creating a mirror for the contemporary Church. The image reflected in that mirror just might surprise you.
These primitive letters provide a prophetic portrait of the "desires" of Jesus for His Church. With picturesque detail, Ravenhill depicts what brings the pleasure of His presence and the pain of His absence.
WHAT IS JESUS SAYING?
What is Jesus saying to the Church? That is a question I've been asked repeatedly over the years. Everyone is looking for the now word; as though some new revelation is going to thrust the Church out of her complacency and into her full potential and purpose. Tragically, the latest word often eclipses the more sure word of prophecy given by our Lord to the seven churches of Revelation. These seven letters are more current, concise and critical to the Church today than ever before. We neglect their message to our own perill They reveal the heart of the Lord for His Church. We would do well to read and heed His loving discipline and exhortation. It could well make the difference between knowing His pleasure or His punishment."He that has ears to hear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the Church."
