When going through trials and adversity, we have a choice to focus on the world or to focus on Jesus. One of the purposes of the Book of Revelation is to encourage us to stand in the authority of the rulership of Jesus Christ, for we overcome trials and circumstances only through Him. In this message, Pastor Chris introduces the letters to the seven churches by showing us how both Jesus and the Apostle John identified with the believers who were experiencing great persecution at that time. Jesus wanted to comfort both them and John by letting them know that they were not alone, that He was with them, and continues to be in the midst of us today. As we keep our eyes on Jesus and maximize Him, we’ll be able to drop anchor in our belief that we will outlast difficult times and experience His supernatural endurance that is full of “hang-in-there” power.
