Revelation – The letter to the compromising church in Pergamum – (1) Intro

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?

We will not all get through this together!

We will not all get through this together! But, you know what? COVID’s not the worst thing we won’t all get through together. Not even close. But we aren’t really told so much about that “other” thing either. Which shouldn’t be surprising at all.

Revelation – The letter to the persecuted church in Smyrna – (2) Divine Knowledge

In Part 2 of The letter to the persecuted church in Smyrna, we’ll look at the Divine Knowledge. The things Jesus knows about the church. Usually, this is good news for the receiving church.

Revelation – The letter to the persecuted church in Smyrna – (1) Intro

We move on to the second of the seven letters in Revelation. This time the letter to the persecuted church in Smyrna. Jesus has good things to say about the church in Smyrna. It’s a bit harder to determine whether there’s any bad news in here – at least the kind of bad news that the church in Ephesus received. There were certainly warnings. But whether things would actually turn out “badly” was dependent on how well the people in that church listened to and carried out what Jesus said.
