Authority Over the Nations and the Morning Star

Thyatira is the next church to receive a specific personal message from Christ. This is one of the saddest churches of the seven, because He says that they were tolerant of a false prophetess who was leading people astray. He also said that He gave her time to repent, and she would not. As long as we are breathing it is never too late to repent, but sometimes we miss our God-given opportunities when we harden our hearts. To the one who endures to the end, Jesus promised that we would rule with Him, and receive Him as our reward!

Hidden Manna and a White Stone

We’ll continue on with Christ’s letters to the seven churches today. Today we will look at His message to the third city, Pergamum. This church began to compromise their faith in practice, by mixing pagan practices with Christianity. By examining the compromises made, we can see that there is something that is much more dangerous to the church than persecution; it is compromise.This is a lesson that still greatly applies today. What are the dangers of compromise? How can compromise be avoided or corrected? May we not have a compromised faith! May we be completely devoted to the Lord!

Unhurt by the Second Death

What is your perspective on tribulation or persecution? In His second letter to the churches, Jesus recognized the persecution they had endured, and encouraged the church of Smyrna to be faithful until the end. When we endure persecution, suffering, pressure, and trouble our faith is tested and strengthened, and a unique promise is made to us by our Lord.

The Tree of Life

I know some of you may be eager to get into the prophetic part of the book of Revelation, but that starts in chapter four. Before we get to the prophecy, we’re going to cover the seven messages that Jesus has for the churches. Everyone of these messages applies to the church today. In these awesome messages, Christ commends, commands, criticizes, calls, and commits to His church. He is the one who holds us and walks with us. Praise Jesus Christ!
