I believed that the letter to the seven churches in our contemporary age is a warning for all of us to return back to God,or our light will be remove.Knowing fully well that we christian of today,are only lover of ourselves,compromise on God commandment. may God bless you for opening our eyes to this great revelation.Amen.

I think of how I am suffering. I am widow of three grown children. My two girls are married and I thank The Lord. My son has been very slow with education. He did not do well at high school and I made him supplement. He then went to S. A. to college, and again he failed some subjects and I worked hard paid his tuition and he repeated twice.

The last quarter of 2013 was very difficult for my small business, my car broke down, the delivery van also broke down, the companies I supplied goods did not pay me. I had some orders cancelled after I had bought the input materials.

I spent Christmas with my daughter and son in-law and 3 grandchildren, that I appreciate. New year I was so broke that we even ran out of food.

We have today opened a new business year with no capital at all, I owe rent for two months and my employee last months salary and a couple of friends some money.

In one of the devotionals I received I came across Revelations 2 V 5
According to me God is telling me to repent of my sins before the lamp stand is removed.

I thank the Lord for giving me a warning and I am going to stop the practices (sinning) that I have been doing so that I can refresh my fellowship with God, and star living a prosperous and peaceful life.
