A Space to Repent
My text will come from Revelation 2:21. I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.
The context of this passage is the end days of the Church Age. After chapter 2 and 3 of the book of Revelation the word church disappears. Final admonitions and warnings are given to the local churches in the last days.
Here in the 2nd chapter of Revelation the church in Thyatira is given a warning to repent of their idolatry and fornication. They are given a space to repent but guess what—they don’t repent during the space allotted them. So they suffer great trials and affliction.
The lesson to us is clear. While you have time, walk with God and if you do wrong, tell the Lord you have sinned and apologize for it. That is, repent of it.
You don’t know how much space is given you to repent.
Your space could be very short and about to expire.
