THE TRUE SYNAGOGUE

Rev 3:9 [NET]
9 Listen! I am going to make those people from the synagogue of Satan - who say they are Jews yet are not, but are lying - Look, I will make them come and bow down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you.

In the letters to the seven Churches, this is the second time the Lord is referring to a Jewish synagogue as the synagogue of Satan (see Rev 2:9). Indeed, those synagogues were built to be synagogues of God, but when God came through Christ and was rejected, God was no more in their synagogues but now dwells in the church (His people). And because the synagogues that were built to contain God were now vacant of God’s presence, Satan took advantage of the vacancy.

When God is rejected from any temple that was built to contain Him, Satan invites himself and takes over. Human beings were created to contain the presence of God, but when people reject Christ, they become tools in the hand of Satan, whether they know it or not.

It was important that the Lord assured the saints about the fact that they are now His people, and that people who claimed to be His people, but who opposed the church, were not His people but people who served Satan. The saints in Philadelphia needed this assurance because of unbelieving Jews who tried to make them feel that they were inferior before God as ‘Gentiles’. But the Lord now made it clear that the Christians are the superior ones, and it will be clear throughout eternity.

Go into today knowing that if you are in Christ, there is no one anywhere that is superior to you. We are born of God and royal members of His family - co-heirs with Christ (Romans 8:17).
