Here are Lorelle's presentations from Amicalola 2013.

This series of messages was designed to offer Christ as the Antidote to the Laodicean condition. Ellen White points out some of the core problem with Laodicea is a lack of gratitude and lack of a sense of privilege.

The True Witness says of a cold, lifeless, Christless church, "I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth" (Revelation 3:15, 16). Mark the following words: "Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked" (Revelation 3:17). Here is represented a people who pride themselves in their possession of spiritual knowledge and advantages. But they have not responded to the unmerited blessings that God has bestowed upon them. They have been full of rebellion, ingratitude, and forgetfulness of God; and still He has dealt with them as a loving, forgiving father deals with an ungrateful, wayward son. They have resisted His grace, abused His privileges, slighted His opportunities, and have been satisfied to sink down in contentment, in lamentable ingratitude, hollow formalism, and hypocritical insincerity. With Pharisaic pride they have vaunted themselves till it has been said of them, "Thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing."  {1SM 357.2}

The Only Begotten Son is a being filled with a sense of gratitude and privilege because He has inherited everything He has. This Spirit given to man is the antidote to Laodicea. Only a Begotten Son can produce this Spirit.
