This is a book that is seldom if ever preached, or studied, yet it is the most powerful compilation of words, from the heart of God, and Jesus Christ, for His church, in all the Bible. It is THE BOOK that the church of Laodicea needed… and it is needed today. It is a book that screams out Rev. 2:4 and 3:15-20. It screams, from Jesus Christ to His church… I LOVE YOU. Come NEAR Me, come AWAY with Me, from ALL of this world. ABIDE with Me! Let Me HEAR your words of love BACK to me. And, I LONG for your presence with me! SET Me as THE SEAL… upon your heart, for YOU are sealed in Mine!
Almost a thousand years before Jesus Christ ever stepped into this world, He had His church on His heart. THIS BOOK…. is His heart… in words!
Song 8:6-7 Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned.
