Milepost 7: Laodicea

Primary References: Revelation 3:14-22

The church of Laodicea has many similarities to its city. They are missing a local source of water, the water that they pipe in is lukewarm, they are physically wealthy, and they do not believe they have any needs. However, Jesus calls them spiritually blind, naked, and poor.  Jesus counsels them to purchase gold, white raiment, and eye salve to alleviate their spiritual condition.  Unless they become zealous and repent, God will spew them out of His mouth as the foul tasting water they are.  Even with all of these shortcomings, Jesus promises that those who overcome will rule with Him.

Laodicea represents the church period from roughly 1900 to present.  It is a time marked by tremendous physical wealth but few spiritual fruits.  As Laodicea does not have its own source of water, this church is missing its water (the spirit of God).  During this period, many churches ‘liberalized’ their doctrinal positions while reducing the role of scriptures in preaching and teaching.  The great missionary zeal of Philadelphia has become a distant memory.

Never has access to scripture been so readily available but this church’s members may be the most ignorant about God’s word.   Worse, their wealth has sapped their desire to search scripture.  This church age’s physical wealth, and their reliance on it, sets the stage for the seven-year tribulation, especially the battle of Armageddon.  This battle purges the earth of many things including people’s reliance on physical wealth; when at its height people throw away their riches.  It is significant that the last church period before the tribulation is afflicted with this love of money that is crushed during the seven-year tribulation.  The following table summarizes the church of Laodicea.
