The Seven Churches of Asia/ Revelation 2-3

Front Cover
AuthorHouse, 2007 M11 26 - 168 pages

In the fall of 2005 the Lord told me to write about the Seven Churches of Asia written in Revelation chapters 2 and 3. With this word I prayed that the Lord would help me to know what to write, and not to leave anything out nor add to it anymore than He intended. The end result continues to astonish me to this day. During the year it took me to write this book, I cried, I laughed, and I got convicted. It is obvious to me that what He said to these seven churches is a controversial subject, but the Bible gives evidence that what is written herein is a fact. God requires far more of us than what most Believers are willing to live out, in their walk with God, and in refusing to comply could mean being rejected at the Judgment seat of Christ, where all Believers will stand to be judged. You will need to read the entire book to understand what is meant by the previous sentence. Having shared the manuscript of this book with a number of other Believers in Christ, it has had a positive and sobering effect on those who have read it. This book contains a message all Believers need to hear; that is why it has been published. It is my sincere prayer for those who will read this book that God will make its content a positive life changing event that will cause them to know Him in the fullness of His character and personality, what it is to fellowship and walk with God, and to do it moment by moment.

Page 52 - Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
Page 40 - I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man : but I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
Page 105 - Every man's work shall be made manifest. For the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire ; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.
Page 71 - And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass; 19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.

Page 132 - God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth ; but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
Page 88 - For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world ; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

About the author (2007)

Samuel Robert Siders was born August 20, 1953 to Samuel Andrew Siders and Clara Ann Spencer-Siders in Columbus Ohio. Through a series of events, by age 15 the Lord made His love for him real in his life; making him aware that some day he would be saved, Samuel would even tell people who would try to win him to Jesus, that it is not time yet. For three and a half years the Holy Spirit did the work of bringing him to a radical life changing born again experience.

On July 8, 1972 while reading Matthew 14:30-31 about Peter walking on the sea to Jesus, then for fear of a storm Peter began to sink into the water. Peter cried out Lord save me. Matthew 14:31 states ... And immediately Jesus stretched forth His hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? The Holy Spirit touched Samuels heart with how much Jesus loved Peter when Jesus immediately stretched out His hand to catch him. At that moment of revelation, the Holy Spirit told Samuel, Now it is time. Samuel gave his heart to Christ and has served Him to this day.

Here is Samuels account; "Now it is time" was a special word because of the Calling God has placed on my life. I have yet to fully understand or fathom what Now it is time means, but He has assured me that I will have fulfilled my Calling before I die.

On July 2004 the Lord called him to preach. As a result he enrolled in the Appalachian District School Of Ministry (ADSOM) in Ghent, West Virginia.
