Rev 3:16-20 But because you are neither cold nor hot, but lukewarm, I am about to spit you from my mouth.
17 For you claim, Im rich and getting richerI dont need a thing. Yet you are clueless that youre miserable, poor, blind, barren, and naked!
18 So I counsel you to purchase goldperfected by fire, so that you can be truly rich. Purchase a white garment to cover and clothe your shameful Adam-nakedness. Purchase eye salve to be placed over your eyes so that you can truly see.
19 All those I dearly love I unmask and train. So repent and be eager to pursue what is right.
20 Behold, Im standing at the door, knocking. If your heart is open to hear my voice and you open the door within, I will come in to you and feast with you, and you will feast with me. TPT
Rev 3:16-20. This is what really disappoints; when you anticipate a refreshing cool drink but instead get a mouthful of lukewarm sulfur tasting water, you would naturally spit it out!
17. As your name suggests, you were experts in justifying yourselves, you were convinced that you have all your ducks in a row, your plumbing is sorted your trade and economy or thriving industries, you think that you were completely independent. Yet you have no idea how bankrupt you really are! Your entire economy is flawed since you were trading with monopoly money! Its fake currency, your scales are rigged! If only you knew how desperately in need you are of someone to show you tender compassion and mercy! I mean, look at you! On the outside you may appear to be standing tall and proud in your self-righteousness but in reality you are in a pitiful state! You are like a crouching, cringing beggar! Your smokescreen has blinded your view! You think youre hiding in your fancy brand-name clothes but you dont realize how naked and exposed you are!
18. I invite you to talk business with me! Come, let us resolve this together! I want to make you really rich! I advise you to buy gold from me! Gold that is thoroughly refined in the fire, not flawed currency of your own trade! Were not talking a mixture here! No dross! And from now on, buy your clothing for me; white garments, not of the blended brand of your own making! Clothe yourselves completely with these and there will not even be a hint of shame! For your eyes, buy eye salve from me to anoint your eyes so that you may clearly see yourselves in Christ!
19. It is with affection that I address everyone of you, whoever you are. I would earnestly persuade you as a parent would instruct and nurture their children; eagerly acquaint yourselves with all that I have in mind.
20. You have shut me out in your self-righteousness, but behold, here I stand knocking at the door! If anyone recognizes my voice and lets me in, I am ready to join you for the feast! Yes I will dine with you and you with me! Mirror
