Today’s Laodiceans or Have you met Luke Warm?
Revelation 3:13-18 (KJV): 13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. 14 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; 15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. 17 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: 18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
Words of the LORD:
“Your rote and dead worship does not impress ME.”
(Words Received from Our LORD by Susan, August 3, 2012)
MY child, it is I, your LORD. WE can begin:
Children, this is your GOD Speaking. I have Words for you…so few are listening…so few want to hear ME. It is just as MY Word said it would be, like the time of Noah.
The day is coming for MY Return. I am looking for an attentive bride. One who longs for MY Appearing. MY Word is clear and does not change.
For those who drink of the lukewarm waters, there will be much sadness. You will not be taken when I come for MY bride. She stands apart from the rest—eager for her BRIDEGROOM’S Return. This is the one that I am coming for—the church that worships and loves its GOD wholeheartedly and without reservation, embracing MY Truths, MY Word, MY Ways. All others seek a god who meets their own criteria, satisfies their longings for the world so they can touch and handle the ways of the world.
They believe they know ME, but they devise a god in their own mind’s they want to worship and it is not the ONE, True Living GOD—it is a god they have constructed to meet their selfish needs and it is an idol, a god who is imaginary, a god who allows them to love the world and its wicked ways. This is MY lukewarm church—the stagnant pool: lukewarm in all its ways…a stench, a foul stench to ME. She will be left standing at the altar when I come for MY true bride.
Children, consider your choices and the decisions you make. Are you coming out with ME to return to an eternal home or will you remain cool toward ME and stay behind? You embrace a dying world. She is dying and this is what you have chosen over the ONE TRUE GOD: Eternal ALPHA and OMEGA.
Your senses have been numbed to Truth: you can’t hear it, see it, smell it, or taste it. You are deaf, dumb, and blind to righteousness, holiness, and MY Way Everlasting. You have given up BEAUTY for ashes. Ashes you want and ashes you will have—soon this world will turn to ashes and it will be too late for MY lukewarm church to turn back to BEAUTY because I will have already departed with MY one, true bride, MY church: humble followers who follow their GOD with blind faith and fervent love and desire for ME and MY Ways.
Lukewarm church: time is running out for you. Your rote and dead worship does not impress ME. Your lack of repentance and remorse over sin shows ME the place you hold for ME in your heart. When I am first place, then and only then, will your oil lamp be full. Does MY Word not speak this?
O’ tepid church: church who has eyes for everyone but ME, wake now before it is too late. Open your blind eyes; unstop your deaf ears—come to the end of yourself. You will have an eternity to regret these moments if you don’t turn back to ME!
HEAVEN’S ETERNAL FLAME
Luke 17:26-30 (KJV): 26And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the SON of man. 27They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. 28Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 30Even thus shall it be in the day when the SON of man is revealed.
2 Timothy 4:8 (KJV): Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the LORD, the Righteous JUDGE, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love HIS Appearing.
John 4:24 (KJV): GOD is a SPIRIT: and they that worship HIM must worship HIM in SPIRIT and in Truth.
Romans 1:25 (KJV): Who changed the Truth of GOD into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the CREATOR, WHO is blessed forever. Amen.
Revelation 3:16 (KJV): So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of MY Mouth.
Revelation 3:18 (KJV): I counsel thee to buy of ME gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
Isaiah 61:3 (KJV): To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that HE might be glorified.
A Letter to the Lukewarm Church:
Lukewarmers: you know who you are—you talk about being around for the next twenty years. You put up every argument against the idea of the LORD’s soon return. Although the Bible is clear about the requirement of WATCHING for the LORD—you say watching isn’t important—you are ready whenever… You have your own future all mapped out—who cares about inquiring for GOD’s Will for your life? You are all caught up in how men can fix the economy, politics, and world problems apart from GOD. You love to misquote scripture to support your scoffing and nay-saying positions. Calling on GOD is only for those who are in a real bind—those who finally connect with GOD when a big crisis happens. Then when the crisis passes—you go back to focusing on the world and your love for it. You sure don’t want GOD’s Will for your life to get in the way of your own future plans.
Lukewarmers: you’re in for a shock—your plans are about to sail out the window—as if they were solid anyway. You don’t have twenty or thirty years to go and here’s just ONE reason why: Go to any library, bookstore—flip through the cable channels or visit the current movies: EVIL abounds. Topics range from new age hocus pocus…occult obsession…mammon overload…repackaged, modernized paganism…pornography on steroids…and mega church environments with a form of godliness but denying the power thereof. Go down to any library anywhere and check out the books for the youth. This generation will not rebound from the evil it has escalated into. The total depravity reflected by the focus of the materials put before the youth today has NO foothold on future survival with its zero tolerance of GOD and the Bible. So apart from the guidance of the Bible, and the Power of the HOLY SPIRIT, what hope is there for this society to turn itself around? Who really wants to see what ten or twenty more years of a completely immoral culture will bring? Good thing we won’t have to—that is if you are really looking for the LORD’s Return but if your plan is to run with the pack it is not going to serve you very well because the road is narrow and few find it.
Galatians 5:19-21(KJV): 19Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the Kingdom of GOD.
Matthew 24:12 (KJV): And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
2 Timothy 3:1-5(KJV): This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of GOD; 5Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
James 4:13-14 (KJV): 13Go to now, ye that say, Today or tomorrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: 14Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
Isaiah 31:1(KJV): Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the HOLY ONE of Israel, neither seek the LORD!
James 4:4(KJV): Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with GOD? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of GOD.
2 Peter 3:3-4 (KJV): 3Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4and saying, Where is the promise of HIS coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
Revelation 3:16 (KJV): So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of MY Mouth.
Warning to the Largest Christian Church in the World: the Lukewarm Church (Revelation 7:9-14)
Warning to the Lukewarm church—the Lord is coming soon and the lukewarm are in trouble—here is the definition of lukewarm in the dictionary:
Main Entry: luke·warm
Etymology: Middle English, from luke lukewarm + warm; probably akin to Old High German lāo lukewarm — more at lee
Date: 14th century
1 : moderately warm : tepid 2 : lacking conviction : halfhearted <gave them only lukewarm support>
Other words for lukewarm: cool; unenthusiastic; unexcited; indifferent; subdued; apathetic
In John’s vision, recorded in the book of Revelation, Christ instructs John to write a message to seven named churches in Asia Minor. The message to Laodicea is one of judgment with a call to repentance. The oracle contains a number of striking metaphors.
“I wish that you were cold or hot” (3:15–16)
“I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were cold or hot. So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will vomit you out of my mouth”
It is thought that the Laodiceans were being criticized for their neutrality or lack of zeal (hence “lukewarm”). Based on this understanding, the pejorative term Laodicean is used in the English language to refer to those neutral or indifferent in matters of faith.
However, some scholars have suggested that this metaphor has been drawn from the water supply of the city, which was lukewarm, in contrast to the hot springs at nearby Hierapolis and the pure water of Colossae (Barclay). The archaeology shows Laodicea had an aqueduct that probably carried water from hot mineral springs some five miles south, which would have become tepid before entering the city. Strabo states that the water was hard, though drinkable.The imagery of the Laodicean aqueduct suggests not that “hot” is good and “cold” is bad, but that both hot and cold water are useful, whereas lukewarm water is useless.
Characteristics of the Lukewarm Church today:
- James 4:4: You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God? Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.
The lukewarm church is not willing to surrender completely to Jesus, so that it still resembles the world so much it is hard to tell the church apart from the world.
- 2 Timothy 4:8: Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.
The lukewarm church is not teaching or preparing for the LORD’s return although ALL the signs have all come to pass. The people seem to be oblivious to the times we are living in because they are too preoccupied with their own lives/interests and are sadly not longing for HIS appearing.
Matthew 28:18-20: Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
The lukewarm church lacks compassion for the great commission and does not see that it is their concern to reach out to the lost. It’s always someone else’s job and not theirs.
Acts 19:4-7: Paul said, “John’s baptism was a baptism of repentance. He told the people to believe in the one coming after him, that is, in Jesus.” On hearing this, they were baptized intothe name of the Lord Jesus. When Paul placed his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they spoke in tonguesand prophesied. There were about twelve men in all.
The lukewarm church grieves the HOLY SPIRIT by denying or ignoring the existence of the HOLY SPIRIT baptism for the Christian and the power that is available to the believer through this baptism. This is primarily for fear of the gifts of the spirit and the manifestation of the HOLY SPIRIT through the believer. The believer therefore is forced to deal with sin by the power of the flesh and works. Ultimately the lukewarm church arrogantly denies the power of the HOLY SPIRIT in their lives because they have a distaste for the manifestations of the HOLY SPIRIT (tongues; interpretations; prophecy; miraculous healings; signs—all Biblical) and would rather deal with the law/sin ineffectively through their own strength/works.
Matthew 7:21-23:“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
The lukewarm church does not have an intimate relationship with the LORD and will be shocked when they come face-to-face with HIM and learn the truth. Unless they alter their course, this will be the sad reality.
Isaiah 31:1:[ Woe to Those Who Rely on Egypt ] Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help, who rely on horses, who trust in the multitude of their chariots and in the great strength of their horsemen, but do not look to the Holy One of Israel, or seek help from the LORD.
The lukewarm church worries about what men think and depend on themselves or others before turning to GOD for their answers.
There are at least 600 denominations of churches and so many different interpretations of the Bible. Second Timothy 4:3-4 says: For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 4They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. The only thought behind the WORD in the Bible that counts is GOD’s thought. That is why the Christian needs to have an intimate relationship with the LORD because according to I Corinthians 2:12-13, the true meaning comes from the HOLY SPIRIT and not in the words which man’s wisdom teaches–Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual .

Jesus says to the lukewarm church: “I will vomit you out of my mouth!”—so the lukewarm church is not made up of the children of Christ. They can’t be the LORD’s children because HE spits them out (John 8:42-47). If your relationship with Christ is lukewarm, then now is the time to tell Jesus you want to break from your tepid condition. Here are some other resources to check out:
Is Your Oil Lamp Full?:
Called out—Come out of her my people—Take His Heart Ministries:
Dear Lukewarm Christians:
Why am I picking on you so much, lukewarm Christians? Because you are LOST and you don’t even know it…
Revelation 3:16(KJV): So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Here is the solution to reverse the lukewarm condition:
Surrender your ALL to the LORD—your life—mind—soul—spirit—future plans—Give it all to the LORD—ask to be filled with the HOLY SPIRIT and to have a FULL OIL LAMP—(meaning: you give the HOLY SPIRIT all of you and you die to self to give complete control of your life over to the HOLY SPIRIT—back away from your pursuit/love of the world by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT.)
Here are some of the troubling symptoms of the lukewarm condition:
2 Timothy 3:5 (KJV): Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
Without the Baptism or full oil lamp (not a half full oil lamp) filling of the HOLY SPIRIT you will have a form of godliness (religion) but deny the power of the HOLY SPIRIT—always doing things in the flesh apart from the HOLY SPIRIT—and you lose the benefit of greater understanding of the Bible, a bolder testimony, and the ability to conquer sin in your life by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT, instead you try to do it through the flesh which is impossible.
Now the lukewarm church wants to chase out the manifestations of the HOLY SPIRIT Filling which can be (based on the HOLY SPIRIT’s choosing to whom HE will give what to): speaking in tongues; interpretations of tongues; visions/dreams; prophesy; Spiritual discernment—etc. Here is why the lukewarm church wants to contain it or eliminate it altogether: the religious spirit abounds in the lukewarm churches—a spirit of rebellion that operates right inside the church to put a stop to the essential and precious move of the HOLY SPIRIT—WHO alone enables the people to operate in the power of the SPIRIT and to be out of their prior lukewarm condition and ultimately saved. Here is more information on the religious spirit: http://www.takehisheart.com/religiousspiritpythonsatan.htm
Also the lukewarm without the HOLY SPIRIT are not getting the benefit of correct understanding of the scripture. Understanding the scripture comes by the leading of the HOLY SPIRIT exclusively and not by the leadings, teachings of men: 1 Corinthians 2:10-14 (KJV): 10 But GOD hath revealed them unto us by HIS SPIRIT: for the SPIRIT searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of GOD. 11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? Even so the things of GOD knoweth no man, but the SPIRIT of GOD. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the SPIRIT which is of GOD; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of GOD. 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the HOLY GHOST teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the SPIRIT of GOD: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. http://www.takehisheart.com/holyspiritspiritualthings.htm
Now the lukewarm church is still caught up in the blending of the world with their faith—but the two cannot mix:
James 4:4 (KJV): Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with GOD? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of GOD.
Matthew 7:22-23 (KJV): 22 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? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from ME, ye that work iniquity.
So the lukewarm church falls into trouble in two ways here: 1) she handles the things of GOD: going to church a couple days a week and praying every now and then—but not really pursuing GOD intimately and seeking the full surrender leading to a full oil lamp. So the lukewarm church never really experiences the powerful walk available through the fullness of the HOLY SPIRIT. And 2) the punishment will be much greater for the lukewarm church in hell—those who had access to the things of GOD but because of their casual relationship with HIM they pull back to pursue the world for answers and gratification that they should have instead found directly through GOD.
Proverbs 26:11 (KJV): As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly.
Hebrews 6:4-8 (KJV): 4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the HOLY GHOST, 5 And have tasted the good Word of GOD, and the powers of the world to come, 6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the SON of GOD afresh, and put HIM to an open shame. 7 For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from GOD: 8 But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned.
If you see yourself in this condition—lukewarm—you better RUN, not walk to seek the Baptism of the HOLY SPIRIT, to receive a full oil lamp through repentance of your sins and lukewarm condition, and to give a full surrender of your life and to be completely submitted to CHRIST.
The Plight of the Lukewarm:
Revelation 3:16(KJV): So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of MY Mouth.
The Lukewarm, warned of in 2 Timothy 3:4-5, they have the appearance of looking and behaving godly—they may attend church regularly but that doesn’t a “Christian” make. These people are satisfied with rote religion—but GOD WANTS MORE—HE wants your ENTIRE LIFE and a relationship too. By taking your life—GOD will exchange it with HIS HOLY SPIRIT filling you and that is the power you deny if you do not give GOD your ALL that is mentioned in this scripture: 2 Timothy 3:4-5 (KJV): Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of GOD: Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
The LORD demonstrates in 2 Peter the plight of the lukewarm church that “plays” with the things of GOD but does not make a serious stand for the LORD: 2 Peter 2:20-22 (KJV): 20For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. 21For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. 22But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb: The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.
So you either move TO GOD and give HIM everything or you are handling the things of GOD such as calling yourself a “Christian” and going through the motions of attending church, yet not really giving the LORD your ALL. Hebrews gives the warning and message of danger to those who “sample” the things of GOD and then pull back to the world:
Hebrews 10:37-39 (KJV): 37For yet a little while, and HE that shall come will come, and will not tarry. 38Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, MY Soul shall have no pleasure in him. 39But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.
CHRIST addresses the lukewarm Laodicean church and says this about the lukewarm followers: Revelation 3:15 (KJV): I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. CHRIST speaks to the same lukewarm group and says this according to Matthew 7:22-23(KJV): 22Many 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? 23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from ME, ye that work iniquity.
Here is a picture of the lukewarm in 2 Timothy 3:7 (KJV): Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. And CHRIST reiterates this in Revelation 3:17(KJV): 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 lukewarm are lost—as lost as the lost who have never received the LORD in their heart. However, the lukewarm lost are in MUCH BIGGER TROUBLE than others because they have dabbled in their faith of GOD and returned to the enemy of GOD for their future plans, answers, and devotion. It is very serious to return to the world and to reject an all-consuming pursuit of CHRIST: Hebrews 10:29 (KJV): 29Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden underfoot the SON of GOD, and hath counted the Blood of the Covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the SPIRIT of Grace?
Are you LUKEWARM and will you be SPIT OUT?
- Have you made a COMPLETE SURRENDER of your LIFE to JESUS?
Deuteronomy 11:13 (KJV): And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the LORD your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul,
2. Do you spend more of your time seeking after or “worshipping” other than GOD? Your career, pursuit of wealth, family, hobbies, interests, worldly entertainment.
Deuteronomy 4:28 (KJV): And there ye shall serve gods, the work of men’s hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.
3. Does GOD just come out of your box for HIM on Sunday mornings and go back in the rest of the week?
Matthew 7:22-23 (KJV): 22Many 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? 23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
4. Do you have your future planned way out in the distance in your mind or have you surrendered all your goals, plans, and future completely over to GOD?
James 4:13 (KJV): Go to now, ye that say, Today or tomorrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: 14Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. 15For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.
5. Do you connect with the LORD frequently through the day by communicating with HIM or does HE never cross your mind?
John 15:5 (KJV): I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
6. Do you engage in watching secular movies, TV, books, Internet, activities that seem alright, but has content you would be uncomfortable about if you knew GOD were looking over your shoulder?
Galatians 5:9 (KJV): A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.
7. Do you rarely find time to read your Bible, but make time for all sorts of other things like secular movies, TV, Internet?
Hosea 4:6 (KJV):My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
8. Does it seem like the LORD’s return is far off into the future? If you were daily filled with the HOLY SPIRIT, you would recognize the times we are living in and that the LORD is coming soon.
2 Timothy 4:8 (KJV): Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
