Topic: Examine Your Own Self! – by Pastor Raphael


Text: Revelation 3:20

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Revelation 3:20 (KJV)

Continual examination of your heart prevents backsliding. The children of God are capable of being led astray if they don’t watch and pray, Matthew 26:41.

The Laodicea church started well but became lukewarm in the process of time when they failed to recognize that they were falling gradually. They fell to the extent that Jesus Christ was kicked out of their heart but they didn’t realize it. Jesus Christ kept knocking their heart again and again but they seem not to hear and allow Him in.

Dear beloved, don’t be lukewarm; be hot and maintain your hotness through the study of the Word of God, meditation, prayer, fasting, fellowship, and self-examination. Do these frequently and you will not backslide. Hallelujah! Be An Overcomer!


Father, today I uproot any bad seeds I have sown by repenting and acknowledging You today Proverbs 18:21

I am far from oppression, and fear does not come near me. Isaiah 54:14

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.” 2 Corinthians 5:10
