The 7 churches

(1/3) > >>

micah7:9:
Are or were the 7 churches of Revelation, literal churches, in the sense did those churches actually exist?
Or were they in a sense prophetic, of how the church- ekklēsia- called out, would be within the circumstances that they faced,  in The Way, and in the world?

jabcat:
They actually existed.

What the message is? 

Ask one person, and they'll say the message was for those churches in the first century only.

Another says it was to the first century churches, with a secondary spiritual message for us.

Another says it's definitely intended for us in these "last days", leading up to Armegeddon.   

Another says it's only spiritual, and a picture of what's occurring in each believer.

Don't ask me...    :mblush: 

micah7:9:
The Book of Revelation is a spiritual offering. So what, "another says," means what.
"Another says it's only spiritual, and a picture of what's occurring in each believer."
Perhaps we have found something here.
