He who has the seven Spirits of God andthe seven stars, says this: ‘I know your deeds, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. 2 Wake up, and strengthen the things that remain, which were about to die; for I have not found your deeds completed in the sight of My God. 3 So remember what you have received and heard; and keep it, and repent. Therefore if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come to you."
At Corinth, revival had went atmospheric. Every conceivable gift was in operation (1:7) and their reputation was to such a degree as to warrant as potential "honorable mention" at Christ's return (1:8). Among the starry firmament of Christ's local churches, Corinth stood out like a supernova. The American church has in many ways enjoyed a similar reality. A church enriched in grace and giftings was the church at Corinth and the church in America.
