Have power - Be Powerful

Revelation 2:25 - But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.

The Lord says in the scriptures following Revelation 2:25 that He will make them rulers over nations if we hold fast till He comes.

Does it mean the Lord's second coming is in our lifetime?
As to my knowledge of the scriptures; NO there is still long time, for now we are yet to see the Day of Sacrifice and after which would be the Day of Judgment. So still a few generations more.

So what is the Lord telling us here? The scripture instructions us, till our live here on earth we need to hold fast and those who do so will be made rulers over nations (I would not like to explain this here but I can tell you this - it is beyond man's imagination to what it implies).

What does 'hold fast' mean?
The Greek word used for hold fast is 'krateo' means to have power or to be powerful.

How can we be powerful?
If we go into the TVM of the verb the mood is imperative and this is defined as -
The imperative mood corresponds to the English imperative, and expresses a command to the hearer to perform a certain action by the order and authority of the one commanding.

So we are to be powerful by taping into the power of the one instructing - the Lord. Thus the Lord is telling us not to be week and be consumed by this world and it's ways, but to resist is and have victory over it by taping into his Power.

If we believe in the Lord and know that Lord has made us to prosper, but the world says the opposite - we need to resist it. We need to tap into the power of the Holy Spirit and talk to our situation and say 'I have victory over you and I refuse to be consumed by you, I have power over you; I am of the Lord '.

[ Prayer Starter ]

Lord God, in your Instruction You show how we can over come every situation on earth if we tap into your Power. Holy Spirit fill me and build me that I may not be consumed by this world for I am a child of God. Help me to come to realization that I have authority over all my situations and by You I can be over it and not under it. I ask this in Jesus' Name, Amen.

24 But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.
25 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.
26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
27 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.
28 And I will give him the morning star.

The Word of God was given free to us, therefore we should also share it freely with others.
