Daily Devotional: What’s ahead if you hold steady?July 17, 2019 Save Article
But that which you have already, hold fast till I come. And he that overcometh, and keepeth My works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations. And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of My Father. Revelation 2:25-27
You’re going to find in these days churches will face more temptation to get away from the Word of God, the blood atonement, and salvation by grace through faith. Churches will also be under attack by seducing spirits and doctrines of demons. But in Jesus’ message here to the church in Thyatira He encourages then and urges, “You hold fast till I come.”
Even though it’s tough, remember this, dear friend—it’s going to happen that one day the saints are going to have their day. Look at v. 26: "He that overcometh and keepeth My works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations." Are you aware the Bible plainly states that one of these days Jesus is going to come and rule this world?
It may not be long before Jesus comes and His millennial reign begins here on this earth. The Bible clearly says that it's going to be a powerful reign (v. 27).
Don't give up, don't let down. Hold fast, stick to it, stay with the Word of God. Hold fast to that old truth. Hold fast to this Book and don't let go.
