We move on to the fourth of the seven letters in Revelation. This time, the letter to the corrupt church in Thyatira. Jesus has good things to say about the church in Thyatira. Some bad things as well. So once again, part of the examination will be about the relationship, if any, between the good and bad statements.
One Like a Son of Man
We move on to the third of the seven letters in Revelation. This time the letter to the compromising church in Pergamum – also called Pergamos in some translations. Jesus has good things to say about the church in Pergamum. And some things that aren’t good. Given the warnings though, it seems like more bad news than good. We’ll see if that’s the case. Just how bad is the compromising?
For the church in Pergamum, being where Satan lives and has his throne means there will be plenty of false teachers and false prophets. The question remains for this study though – were Jesus’ words a reminder, a warning or a wake-up call?
The same is true for us. In a way, these words are for all of us. Remember what Jesus said about Satan and this world. The entire passage is important for us to remember and to live out. It’s full of important things for us – the Holy Spirit, living as Jesus taught us, not being afraid, having peace. And for this topic, especially verses 30 and 31 at the end, regarding the prince of this world – Satan.
