Christ Has Authority
Over Every Circumstance!
“Christs Message to the Church in Smyrna” is a sobering, eye-opening message for the Church today. In this classic teaching, Rick Renner shares encouraging Bible truths against the backdrop of intense suffering by believers in Early Church history — with application for our lives today.
Among the seven churches addressed by Jesus in the book of Revelation, the congregation in Smyrna suffered the worst. Jesus was intentional about letting the Smyrnaean believers know He was standing by them. He wanted them to know that nothing would prevent His eternal plans for His people from coming to pass, nor would anything remove His eternal rewards from their grasp.
As you walk with the Lord, He is speaking these same encouraging words to you. These teachings will bolster your stand for Christ, strengthen your devotion to Him, and eradicate the fear of death from your life!
