The mystery of the Seven Stars by Pastor Melissa Scott

August 5, 2010 · Posted in Pastor Melissa Scott 

Pastor Melissa Scott tells us that verse 20: “The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The stars, the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.” Now, wonderful! That’s a mystery that was just revealed to us. We didn’t have to do any thinking; He just told us. That’s pretty good. Where the confusion comes in is people want to use symbols, prophecy, and interpretation.

When He says the seven stars now everything that I’ve said over the last couple of weeks confirmed in this one statement the pastors of the church are the messengers, the angel messengers, and the stars. A star is to give illumination. Unfortunately, we have and we live in a world where the pastors must be the stars, and I say that as a two fold, double edged commentary. I don’t want you to look at me. I don’t want you to get hung up on whether I’m a man, a woman, or something else. I don’t want you to get hung up on how I look or how I dress or how I act or how I talk.

As long as I’m preaching Christ to you out of that Book, focus your eyes on the message. These seven stars were to illuminate a very dark world in the age of the Ephesians, certainly all of these churches, but now I’m going to focus in on Ephesus very dark, paganistic, rejected. If you want to look at a world that is so hung up on itself, these seven pastors of these seven churches which represent all the universal church, and we have a problem. Many people in today’s world forget the pastor, the star, is the illuminator to bring the light of the Gospel to a darkened world and not to self deify and self ballonify, to make a word up.

Listen carefully, because you’re going to find out a lot about me as weeks progress you do your works, and I’m saying that as a generic word. You do them the way you do giving. If you’re going to do something, you do it for Christ’s sake and you don’t do it because brother and sister so and so are going to think you’re a saint. You don’t do it because all, like a Pharisee, all will see how good and great I am. You do it for Christ’s sake.
