The prophetic passage of Scripture we are looking at today is Numbers 24:12-14 which reads: “And Balaam said unto Balak, Spake I not also to thy messengers which thou sentest unto me, saying, If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I cannot go beyond the commandment of the Lord, to do either good or bad of mine own mind; but what the Lord saith, that will I speak? And now, behold, I go unto my people: come therefore, and I will advertise thee what this people shall do to thy people in the latter days.”

Our second coming quote for today is from S. Lewis Johnson. He said, “The Second Coming of the Lord Jesus ought to enlarge in our Christian thinking. The earliest Christians made a great deal after they learned the truth of the suffering, the cross and the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus. And it seems to me that today we may be possibly erring a little by making a whole lot over the First Coming and sometimes de-emphasizing the reigning, the crown, the literality of the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus.”

The church at Philadelphia had only a “little power”, but our Lord promised to do great things through them. He promised to use their testimony to convert the Jews who opposed them. He also promised to keep them from the “hour of testing” which shall “come upon the whole world.” This is no mere local persecution to which He refers, but the Great Tribulation itself. It will affect the “whole world” and test those who “dwell upon the earth.” …

He sent messengers therefore unto Balaam the son of Beor to Pethor, which is by the river of the land of the children of his people, to call him, saying, Behold, there is a people come out from Egypt: behold, they cover the face of the earth, and they abide over against me: Come now therefore, I pray thee, curse me this people; for they are too mighty for me: peradventure I shall prevail, that we may smite them, and that I may drive them out of the land: for I wot that he whom thou blessest is blessed, and he whom thou cursest is cursed.”

Our second coming quote for today is from Billy Graham. He said, “We are to wait for the coming of Christ with patience. We are to watch with anticipation. We are to work with Zeal. We are to prepare with urgency. Scripture says Christ is coming when you’re least expecting him. Coming as a thief. He said, ‘Be prepared. Get Ready. Prepare to meet thy God. Are you prepared?'”

“The church at Philadelphia was one of the strongest of the seven congregations. It was a church with missionary zeal and spiritual commitment. Outwardly, it was small and poor compared to the church at Sardis. But inwardly, it was a dynamic and faithful church. Observing the contrast between the two churches, Bruce Metzger writes, ‘The letter to Sardis contains almost unmitigated censure; the letter to Philadelphia is one of almost unqualified commendation.’ The city itself was the youngest of the seven.”

1. U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter convened an extraordinary war council on Monday on Iraq’s doorstep, six days after taking office, to discuss the nitty-gritty of the administration’s oft-criticized strategy for countering the Islamic State militant group and probe for gaps and weaknesses.

3. The Italian government is on high alert after threats from the Islamic State called Italy “the nation signed with the blood of the cross.” The Vatican — considered by many to be the de facto seat of worldwide Christianity — is in Rome, so the city could be a target.

Our second coming quote for today is from R.W. DeHaan. He said, “The fact that our Savior is coming again gives us hope. It makes us want to stand our ground. It encourages us to continue fighting the good fight of faith. It assures us of victory. Fierce as the battle may rage and difficult as the conflict may be as we serve Him, we dare not give up. Christ is coming again—perhaps today.”

Like the city, the church of Sardis was in constant danger. Just as Sardis had fallen because of a lack of vigilance, so the church was in danger of falling as well. As the city had flourished and then decayed, so the church had done the same. No wonder they were told to ‘wake up’ and “strengthen the things that remain.” Metzger notes, “Here are five staccato imperatives: Wake up! Strengthen! Remember! Obey! Repent!” …
