This passage teaches that heaven is a very real place, for all redeemed people to live for eternity. After all, everything in our spiritual life and destiny is in heaven , therefore, we ought to know a little bit about this wonderful place. John begins to describe heaven in this chapter and finishes it out in the next chapter.
What goes into believers' plans and greetings? Titus 3:12–15 prepares us for the second serial reading in public worship on the Lord's Day. In these four verses of Holy Scripture, the Holy Spirit teaches us that believers humbly see their neediness and seek/accept help, but also rejoice at opportunities to be used by Christ to meet others' needs

Commandments 6,7,8 of progressive Christianity says Christianity is more about the "journey" than right belief, that meeting needs is more important than upholding the institution of the church, and that peacemaking is more important than power. Again the root problem is their denial of the authority of Scripture which tells us how the Christian should live, that the church is the means by which we are united to Christ, and that peace will not come unless one submits themselves to the authority of Christ and His church.

The professing church bears God's name, but where it actually departs from him, there he brings judgement, not to utterly destroy, but that a remnant may be brought to repentance. Ezekiel 6 is a warning to the worldly church in our age to turn back to God.
Psalm 73:1-3 (KJV) A Psalm of Asaph. Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart. 2 But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped. 3 For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
Psalm 73:16-17 (KJV) When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me; 17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end.
