“The Laodicean Age”
by Art Sadlier   
July 1st, 2010

John describes the church of Laodicea in Revelation 3:14-17: ”And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:”

The Laodicean church is the last church of the church age. The Laodicean Church is an unsaved church. We see the marks of Laodicea all around us today.

In a new monthly poll it is reported that 40% of evangelical leaders said they "socially drink alcohol." In the Philadelphian church of 1800’s to the 1950’s it was 0%.

Today, supposedly Christian films contain sex, violence and drugs. Christian book stores use a system developed by the Dove Foundation.  Its purpose is to caution parents that some Christian films can also contain un-Christian behaviour or situations. The Dove Foundation's new "Faith-Based" seal will carry letters indicating the offending content: "V" for violence, "D" for drugs and alcohol, "S" for sex, etc. These videos are marketed in Christian book stores for Christians?

The music of the world has become the music of much of the Laodicean church. You cannot tell the difference between contemporary Christian music and the world’s music.

Jesus described the true believer as one who has turned away from the world and all it stands for and has forsaken all to follow Him. Jesus said, “If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” He also described those who are His disciples this way, “...whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.”

Jesus described some who thought they were Christians and were not in Matthew 7: 22-23. “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

My friend I do not want to rain on your parade, but this is very serious issue. If you are Laodicean in your lifestyle, which comes from your heart, you are not a part of the body of Christ. Paul said long ago to the people of His day, “Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves....” 2 Corinthians 13:5.
