To the Church in Ephesus
John wrote to the Church in Ephesus. This letter can be found in the Book of Revelation.
In this post, I will provide insight (revelation) into John’s letter to the Church in Ephesus. This Book in the Bible is not all that it appears to be on a secular level. The Bible is filled with symbolism and revealed to the awakened soul in time.
“To the angel of the church in Ephesus, write:
These are the words of him who holds the seven stars in his right hand and walks among the seven golden lampstands. I know your deeds, your hard work, and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked people, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false. You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary.
Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first. Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place. But you have this in your favor: You hate the practices of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.
John had a vision. He shared the vision in his letter to the Church of Ephesus. The number seven in Hebrew means rest, cessation from work, wholeness, completeness, ripe, order, stability, and holiness. The number seven is significant and prevalent throughout scripture.
Angels are messengers of God. The seven stars represent the seven sisters, the Pleiades, who are thought to have seeded humanity. The seven golden lampstands are the seven churches. The word for church is Ekklesia which means a called-out assembly or group. The lampstand is the man rooted in the power and wisdom of God, one having fulfilled scripture.
John explains in his letter to the church in Ephesus that one does not enter the Kingdom until one can repent, which means having a radical change of attitude. For example, if you are consistently thinking of ill health, you must imagine yourself healthy and form thoughts that confirm the new healthy attitude.
To the one who hears the word of God and believes, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life. This paradise is the Garden of Eden within man’s mind. The garden needs to be cultivated with lovely thoughts. In the letter to the church of Ephesus, John shares the message he received about repentance. When a man hears the word of God, believes what he hears, awakens, and has faith, it is time to change his attitude toward life. What you believe, you shall receive. So, believe in what you want to experience in this life.
As I have mentioned in previous posts, The Bible tells a psychological story that takes place within man. Awakening begins at the end of Revelation and unfolds from Revelation through Matthew. The Old Testament is a foretelling of the New Testament. Imagine, if you will, that all you have been taught about the Bible is not altogether true. Take what resonates with you because the knowledge of the universe resides within you. This knowledge will unveil itself as you awaken. Just observe what resonates as truth to you. Read John’s words carefully in his letter to the church in Ephesus.
