Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with deepening understanding:
“In his right hand he held seven stars…”
Anyone reading that statement for the first time would be baffled, Jesus.
How could You hold even one star in Your hand
let alone seven?
Then You explain: This is a vision.
The seven stars
are seven angels
of seven churches.
It’s possible, of course, that You might literally hold seven angels in Your hand.
You can do anything.
But based on how You use the phrase, “right hand” elsewhere in Scripture, I’m guessing You’re telling me these angels hold a place of honor with You
and are very powerful.
The fact that You’re holding them
tells me they’re very close to You.
So here’s my question: Since each of these churches has an angel to watch over it and help fight its battles
does this mean every church has an angel?
