Sardis or Laodecia?

Prayer-is-the-language-by-Leland-Francisco.jpgIn my recent Bible reading I found myself in Revelation 3 considering the churches that are presented there.  I believe that I’ve only ever heard of this present age being Laodecia for a couple of reasons.

First, many in the circles I travel are pre-tribulation1 , pre-millenialists2 , and these people hold to the idea that the ordering of the churches in the book of Revelation has significance to the time periods before Christ’s return.  Therefore, to be in Laodecia– the last of the churches mentioned– means that the Lord’s return is not just imminent but soon.


  1. The Rapture of the saints will come before the 7 year tribulation of the Earth. []
  2. There is a real tribulation before a literal 1,000 year rule of Christ on the Earth before the final judgment []
