Having read over and over the text of the "letters to the spirits of the seven churches", I am becoming convinced and convicted by the Holy Spirit that these "seven churches" are representative of individual believer's spirits that are present in virtually every congregation of believers. I have observed the spiritual implications of these letters in every congregation, and with a visit of some months to any congregation, I believe I can spot believers among the congregation that possess the spiritual character traits of these seven churches. That is, I believe that the members of a congregation can be grouped by their spiritual traits into one of seven groups all within the same congregation. So I am becoming increasingly convinced that the letters to the seven churches are directed to every church and that the members of the church are convicted by the spiritual trait that they possess. Have any of you observed the same or similar thing in your congregations? I also have observed that churches within Denominations and Factions also seem to behave according to spiritual characteristics. Some churches in the SBC for example, are Laodocea, only lukewarm, some have lost their first love, some are wealthy without generosity, etc. Do you think that the letters to the seven churchs are really letters to the seven spirits that occupy every congregation everywhere in the world?
