|Revelation 2:9,3:9 |
9 I know your works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but you are rich), and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews, and are not, but are of the synagogue of Satan.4 [Though they are relatively rich in spirit, they mourn for more. Christians are inward Jews with circumcised hearts; those who claim to be Christians, but who have not had their hearts circumcised by the Spirit, speak blasphemy calling themselves Christians. Notice again! Jesus is referencing their works, which are works of loving obedience to the commands you hear spoken from God in your heart.]
9 Behold, I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them come and bow down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you.
