|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; their churches are synagogues of Satan. 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.
