The Synagogue of Satan ~ Audio
For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God. (Romans 2:28-29)
ARE YOU IN COVENANT WITH THE DEATH OR IN COVENANT WITH THE LIFE?
IF JESUS IS NOT YOUR SAVIOUR YOU WILL DIE IN YOUR SINS!
The term "Synagogue of Satan" is a term which the Lord Jesus Christ used twice in the book of Revelation, and it is something that we need to be aware of. The Lord did not hesitate to associate false believers with our adversary Satan, and therefore the true minister of Jesus Christ should not hold back that same truth to please any group of people. It is very important also that you notice the Lord used that term when he addressed certain churches in the book of Revelation. In the first instance the Lord was speaking to the church at Smyrna:
And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive; I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. (Revelation 2:8-10)
First of all the Lord brings great comfort to the true Christians that were part of the church at Smyrna. Jesus let them know that he is the "first and the last" (Isaiah 44:6) the same one who was dead but was now alive. The true Christian is blessed in knowing that the very same Jesus Christ who died, rose again, and ascended into heaven is now alive forevermore. (Revelation 1:17-18, 2:8)
The Lord Jesus Christ who was addressing the church at Smyrna was letting the true Christians know that He was well aware of their problems, and the trouble that the devil was bringing their way. He was aware of their physical poverty, but He also told them that they were "rich" (spiritually) which was the only thing that was of eternal importance. Then the Lord told them that He knew about the "blasphemy" of those who declared that they were "Jews" but they were not. Now first of all you must realize that the Lord takes blasphemy very seriously and that is why he brings this up. Blasphemy is a railing against God himself and it is a very denial of Him. In this instance the Lord declared that there was a group of people, who claimed to be "Jews," but in reality they were not! They were obviously attempting to convince the true Christians that they also were "true Jews" but they were lying. The Lord was flat out calling these people Satan's children, something which He had also done when He walked this Earth! (John 8:44) The Jewish apostle Paul made it clear that the only "true Jews" were those who had been spiritually changed in their heart! (see 2 Corinthians 5:17)
There are many who falsly worship "Jews".
There destiny is not HEAVEN but HELL!
Matthew 12:34 "You brood of vipers, how can you, being evil, speak what is good? For the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart.
