Revelation 3:16


16 So [houto] then because [hoti] thou art [ei] lukewarm, [chliaros] and [kai] neither [oute] cold [psuchros] nor [oute] hot, [zestos] I will [mello] spue
[emeo] thee [se] out of [ek] my [mou] mouth. [stoma]    KJV-Interlinear

16 ‘So because you are lukewarm,
and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My
mouth.    NASB






Revelation 3:16




Spiritually lukewarm people,
are not hot for doctrine or God, and they are not cold against doctrine or God.

But they have strong opinions regarding God and
their Christian life, but their opinions are based on what is convenient to
them, and not according to the scriptures.

All that they say and do, is for show, or for the
benefit of impressing others, and thus is merely to satisfy their ego and their
perception of self importance.

They over estimate their own worth to themselves
and to others. Their whole spiritual
life is one of pretense and is phony through and through.

Christ says that He is ‘about’ to vomit them out of
His mouth. This is an attitude of
extreme disgust.

About, means that there is always the opportunity
for the lukewarm crowd to repent and get their act together.  However, given their attitude, that window of
opportunity is narrow. When people get
into the mode of indifference toward truth, when their own opinions become more
important than truth, then God will give them many opportunities to turn their
life around, but at some point, God will let them have their way as He goes His
own separate way, away from them, Ps 109:17-18; Jer
7:16; 11:14; 14:11; Isa 1:15; Hos 4:17.

And when God turns His back on you, then your life
is in deep, deep, deep doo-doo.

This can occur on an individual basis, and in the
future (Rapture/Tribulation) it will be applied on a worldwide basis.





These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
