God comes near in times of suffering
By Dr. Jack Graham | November 12, 2018

“I, John, your brother and partner in the tribulation and the kingdom and the patient endurance that are in Jesus, was on the island called Patmos on account of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus.”

—Revelation 1:9

John is the human author of the Revelation. And since his most famous book had been written, it had been sixty years since John the Disciple had seen Jesus after the resurrection and ascension. When he wrote the Book of Revelation, you would think it was time to check into the retirement home and have a nice rocking chair into heaven. But that’s not true for John.

Despite his age and faithfulness, John was exiled, banished, and persecuted for his faith on this Isle of Patmos, a place of extreme depravation and desperation.

Maybe you’ve discovered that you’re on a personal Patmos journey; that you are lonely, limited, and isolated. You may be living on an island of an unhappy marriage or the island of an unhealthy body, and shut out from family and friends. Perhaps you are persecuted for the sake of the Gospel.

The Bible says all who live in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. And there should be at least opposition if we’re standing firm in our faith for the Lord Jesus Christ.

Yes, there is tribulation but we are not alone on our personal island of Patmos! You may be in a hospital room or a nursing home. You may be in prison. You may be old and tired and feeling like the whole world has forgotten you. But you are not alone if you are in Jesus.

In our greatest trials we know that God comes very near, and we can experience His presence...

Your hope for real and lasting peace
By Dr. Jack Graham | October 23, 2018

I’m amazed at how far technology has come in the past 200 years. Just think… In 1818, the only people who knew what the President of the United States looked like would’ve been those who had seen him personally. But now, we’re inundated with news and pictures of our president, celebrities, and our friends every day.

There's power in your testimony
By Dr. Jack Graham | March 5, 2018

Sometimes, when you and I really blow it, we get the idea that we can't come to God. But then on other days we may feel like, "I've had a great day today. I feel like I can ask God for his blessings."

Chapter 2

Therefore repent. If not, I will come to you soon and war against them with the sword of my mouth. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, with a new name written on the stone that no one knows except the one who receives it.

—Revelation 2:16-17

 

We live in an age of compromise. You see it in every level of government, industry, and unfortunately… you see it in the church as well. 

 

But today… instead of focusing on the compromise you see in others… I want to ask you… are you a compromising Christian? Are you living a double standard? Are there areas in your life, be it in your marriage… your professional life… or your thought life… where you are compromising?

 

Maybe you’re thinking about cheating on your spouse. Perhaps you’ve turned a blind eye to something unethical at work. Or maybe you allow yourself the leeway to think lustful or hateful thoughts.

 

Whatever it is, let me assure you of this: God takes the sin of compromise seriously!  Revelation 2:16 says it clearly, “Therefore repent.  If not, I will come to you soon and war against them with the sword of my mouth.” Jesus is not only saying that He’ll deal with any church that compromises with sin… He’s saying it to any Christian too… including you and me!

 

Jesus wants you to stop compromising, admit your sin, and deal with it. He wants you to get right...
