He That Hath an Ear 
 
By Servant of God


This expression is absolutely Hebrew in its character, origin, and use. It is never used with reference to, or in connection with, the Church of God.
 
By application of course it told those who first read it of the cause of all declension - failure to hear what the Spirit had already said to the Churches by the Apostle Paul. By application also, it reminds us of the same cause today.
 
The expression (which is slightly varied in form) as first used in the Gospels is connected solely with, and marks, A CHANGE OF DISPENSATION. When used again in REVELATION another great change of DISPENSATION is about to take place. It is to be wrought by "the Son of Man," who has received authority to show it to "His servants."
 
Such a change could be known only to God, ruled and over-ruled by Him. None but Divine foreknowledge, therefore, could make it known.
 
In Revelation chapter 2 and 3 we have the seven churches, Each Epistle ends with two things:
 
(1) an injunction to "hear;"
(2) a promise to him that "overcometh."
 
In the first three Epistles the Promise comes after the Injunction. In the last four it comes before it.
