The People of The Opinion “Laodicea”

Matt S AMTM September 2019 (opinion piece).

Recently I have been hearing more about the Church of Laodicea, both from the scriptural perspective of the book of Revelation, and from historical and archaeological information on the city of Laodicea. I was both amused and curious to learn that Laodicea can be definedas meaning “lukewarm” or “indifferent” in reference to religious belief. To look more closely at the root Greek words reveals an even more interesting meaning. The first part of Laodicea is “Laos”in Greek, and means “a people“, the second part “dike”means “a judicial hearing, judicial decision, esp. sentence of condemnation“. Thus we get the common meaning of Laodicea as “the people of the decision” or “the people of the opinion”, or “self opinionated critical people”.

A dedicated musician and audio engineer with a passion for all things related to sound and music, with a desire to see these things used for the Kingdom Of God. I have given years to this pursuit and to improving my skills in these areas. Having worked as a tech in the audio side of television, music, voice over, sound effects, sound for video, and all manner of other audio recording, mixing and mastering projects; I began to apply my knowledge of these to the creating of the A Minute To Midnite show in 2015. All the music used in every AMTM Show has been written, played and recorded by me. I love being able to combine my gifts as a composer, musician and sound engineer, with the desire to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ, along with a message of warning people to prepare for the End Time Events that are unfolding before us. The A Minute To Midnite show and running the website has pretty much become my full time occupation now.
