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 []
