This is from an older blog I wrote on Easter about 2 years ago. After teaching tonight at our Good Friday service, I felt it was worth revisiting for the sake of any who may have missed it the first time around. As usual, comments always welcomed! Though Passover is a Jewish holiday, it is […]

These are His revelations regarding each of their present situations. The letters are addressed to “the angel of the church at…” and the meaning of this phrase is debated. […]
