Laodicea

“To the angel of the church in Laodicea write:

   These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation. I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth." ~ Revelation 3:14-16

This song is based off of the letter to the church at Laodicea, as recorded in the Bible, in the book of Revelation, chapter 3, verses 14-22. This is a description of a church that is lukewarm, and God/Jesus is calling out to them to hear what he is saying to them about their spiritual condition, to open their hearts' doors to renewed fellowship with him via repentance, and to commit their lives to Jesus Christ in passionate obedience. I believe the Lord Jesus is still extending this call to today's "Laodicea" church, i.e. the church that is lukewarm today.
 
 
Laodicea / An Original Work / April 29, 2011

 

Laodicea, Laodicea, I’m calling you.

You hear Me calling, you hear Me calling. I’m calling you.

Will you not answer? Will you not answer? I’m calling you.

If you but follow, if you but follow, I’ll answer you.

Won’t you give Me your heart and your soul,

So I can cleanse you and make you whole?

Laodicea, Laodicea, I’m calling you.

If you will answer, if you will answer, I’ll come to you.

 

I stand at your door, I stand at your door. I’m knocking there.

Will you not listen? Will you not listen, while I’ll be there?

If you’ll but open, if you’ll but open your hearts to Me,

I’ll come within you, I’ll come within you, you’ll sup with Me.

Won’t you buy from Me some gold and salve?

These costly treasures are yours to have.

Laodicea, Laodicea, I’m calling you.

If you will answer, if you will answer, I’ll come to you.

 

Are you contented, are you contented to be lukewarm?

Will you not have Me? Will you not have Me? Of this I warn –

If you don’t hear Me, if you don’t hear Me, and so obey,

I will spit you out, I will spit you out without delay.

So why not heed this your final call,

And give to God absolutely all?

Laodicea, Laodicea, I’m calling you.

If you will answer, if you will answer, I’ll come to you.
