Pastor Melissa Scott tells us that it means ‘church at Thyatira all that I’ve told you to do or to not do’ that’s what we’re talking about. He’s cautioning them. ‘Now will you hear My words church at Thyatira and do what I’ve told you or abstain from what I’ve told you.’ This is what’s being said. And “unto the end” – “keep my works unto the end, and I’ll give him exousia” – authority – “over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.” That authority, that power that He received of His Father. That’s what that last verse is saying. “I will give him the morning star” which means ‘where you are in your darkness, church of Dark Ages, I’ll light the way for you. Just keep focused on Me.’ Keep your eyes on Jesus. “To him that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto to the churches.”

As I prepared for this I read, and you probably have some note in your margin of your Bible this verse 26 and 27 is a quotation out of Psalm 2. So turn in your Bible to Psalm 2 with me. You’ll find if you go home, I’m going to just tell these few scriptures to you. You can check them out. Paul uses this Psalm 2 in Acts 13:33, Hebrews 1:5. There’s many, many references in the Bible to this second Psalm and it’s called a Messianic Psalm. Now there’s much debate as to whether Psalms 1 and 2 were connected. I don’t want to get into that debate. I just want to make a point.

The beauty of this Psalm is it’s going to help us to see something that if we just read the New Testament we wouldn’t see. It’s just very simple but it’s enough for me. We read the New Testament. I put the translation in the Greek and I tried to write small, little English letters underneath. But the Septuagint, which would be not quite what your King James reads but it doesn’t matter. You’re just going to hear what I’m going to say.
