Rev 3:10 (NET) Because you have kept my admonition to endure steadfastly, I will also keep you from the hour of testing that is about to come on the whole world to test those who live on the earth.
As Femi started to seek the Lord in prayer and fasting for the year, one of the first things he did was to ask the Lord what improvements he needed to make in his life to walk better in pleasing the Lord. He sensed the Lord leading him to be more committed to prayers that year. When he got to church in the evening, he received a confirmation of that admonition. It was now clear to Femi that he needed to set aside some time every night to pray and spend time with the Lord.
In today’s Bible text, Jesus talked about an hour of testing. In 1 Cor 7:26, Apostle Paul also made reference [by the spirit of prophecy] to an Impending crisis. History has it that around that period, Christians everywhere were persecuted by the mighty Roman Empire which ruled the world. The Empire made it a duty to persecute and kill Christians everywhere, and they used their very vast resources to do this. But the Church in Philadelphia would be spared from this testing because they always kept the Lord’s admonition to them.
The Lord has the power to preserve His own from global or national occurrences that appear inescapable. When a person honors the Lord, the Lord honors him and dedicates special resources for His peace and prosperity(see 1 Sam 2:30). The church at Philadelphia honored the Lord and Kept His admonition. Because of this, they were spared.
I do not know what admonition you have recently received from the Lord, but as you go into today, be determined to keep the Lord’s admonition, and see His preserving grace and power multiply in every area of your life.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
