The Son of God by Pastor Melissa Scott

September 6th, 2010

Pastor Melissa Scott tells us that only kings, only high people, high standing people, officials wore purple. You were a person of great authority and most likely a king or high-ranking official in the church if you wore purple. This purple was extracted from the plant called the madder or a shellfish called the murex. One little drop of that purple could dye and color a whole bunch. And I want you to think of that as we look through this letter because it’s going to lead us back to a parable. And some of you are already on the page. It’s going to lead us back to a parable of something. One little drop will contaminate everything.

Purple is what Thyatira’s famous for. This letter starts the same way all the other ones do. ‘To the church at Thyatira from…’ and I just want to read through it. Before we do anything else let’s just read through the letter so everybody’s at the same starting point.

“Unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; these things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet like fine brass. I know thy works, charity, service, faith, thy patience and works; and the last to be more than the first. Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calls herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.”

Remember this is Jesus talking. Some people that want to paint Jesus as the cushiony, fluffy, you know ‘I love you so much.’ He does but there’s another side to Him and that’s His all-power and wrath that He’s going to pour out on some of these people shortly. What does he say? I know this is terrible. Some people can’t believe this is Jesus talking.
