THE SEVEN CHURCHES OF THE REVELATION
"Let him who has ears, hear what the Spirit says to the churches?"
|Churches||Strengths||Failures||Instruction||Promise To Faithful|
|You have forsaken your first love||Repent and do the works as you did at first||You will eat from the tree of life|
|Endure your suffering and poverty, yet you are rich||None||Remain faithful even when facing prison, persecution or death||I will give you the crown of life. You will not be hurt by the second death|
|Loyalty to Christ; refuse to deny Him||Tolerate cults, heresies, idolatry and immorality||Repent!||Hidden manna and a stone with a new name on it|
|Love, faith, works, patient endurance; constant improvement||Tolerate pagan cults, idolatry and immorality. Judgement coming!||Repent!||Faithful hold fast until I come. I will give you authority over the nations and gift of the morning star|
|Only a faithful remnant have kept the faith. Church is spiritually dead||Repent and turn back to Christ||Strengthen what little faith remains||Faithful will walk with Jesus and not be blotted out of the book of life|
|Kept my word and have not denied my name||None||I have placed before you an open door. I will keep you from the hour of trial.||I will make you a pillar in the temple of my God|
|None||Neither hot nor cold. You rely on riches but don't realize your spiritually impoverished condition.||Turn from indifference and repent!||I will invite those who overcome to sit with me on my throne|
