Revelation 2 & 3


Here's the "personal" version of our ladies' bible study on Revelation 2 & 3 (minus large and small group discussion).  Use the outline and questions below to engage the Lord and the scripture on your own time.  

REVELATION 2 & 3

BEFORE you read the scripture...
Prepare your heart to hear from God. Try listening to the video/song below. As you listen, prayerfully breathe OUT all the crap and baggage you are holding on to. Breath IN God and His Spirit. Focus on the lyrics, pray the lyrics. Relax, "dial" or "tune" in. Seek God and PRAY that He’d speak to you as you read today!  


Ask God to speak to you today as you read.  Consider using this scripture to pray for understanding from Psalm 119:18 - “Open my eyes that I may see the wonderful things in Your law!”  Help us to understand and comprehend Your Word, God!  Open my eyes and open my ears - I want to see You, I want to hear from You!

READ the scripture...


Find Revelation 2 and 3 in your Bible or favorite bible translation.  As you read, journal or take notes and prayerfully ask the Lord these questions.  (If you like ambient music to listen to AS you read, try this playlist:  Ambient Bible Study Playlist 7.31.12)
  1. God, what part of this scripture are you highlighting for me today?
  2. What do you want to say to me through this? In regard to my life? In regard to who You are or what You're doing?
  3. Now that You have spoke, how do you want this to change the way I live? How can I apply this to my life, God?
  4. Write down any questions that you have in regard to scripture.
MOVING FORWARD IDEAS...

  • Read through this passage for a week, at least once per day.  Continue to journal your thoughts, your prayers, your questions, etc.
  • How would you describe each of the churches mentioned in these passages?  List some good/bad characteristics of each.  Then, prayerfully consider which church YOU are the most like.  Ask God to encourage and convict you appropriately.  
  • Do you have ears to hear what the Spirit is saying?  Why or why not?  How can you position yourself better to listen/hear/obey?
