Book of Mark 15:23 by Pastor Melissa Scott

The second place, Mark 15:23 we have the cross of Jesus being carried to Golgotha and you see just before Jesus is crucified they offer Him a drink, wine mixed with myrrh. He does not take it and there’s, there are reasons why He doesn’t take it, not because He didn’t drink wine. There are other reasons why He didn’t take it, lest any, any of you have fallen off the planet for some reason. And last reference we have is in John 19:38 where Joseph of Arimathaea and Nicodemus take the body of Jesus and preparations are made for the burial of the body with aloe and myrrh. It is no accident that these are the three references in the New Testament representing His birth, His life and His death.

Pastor Melissa Scott tells us that the next reference we have will be in the book of Revelation. The name, the name is very important; it didn’t just come to be. A lot of people talk about what’s in a name. It’s, it’s the place of suffering and this was associated with this church. Now I want to take a minute to read through the text before I go any further because there are some of you who listen to me and you don’t open your Bible. Today I want to you open your Bible, if you’re at home listening, wherever you are please open your Bible, go get your Bible. I know there’s one somewhere on a shelf with dust on it, go find it, go get, open it up. I’m talking to you right now. Okay.

“And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead and is alive; I know thy works, and thy tribulation, and poverty, but thou art rich.” He says, “Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be faithful, be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches;” plural, “He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.”
