The Church at Thyatira was the consequence of Pergamos’ marriage to the Enemy. It was a time we call the “Dark Ages.” It was a time generally from 500 AD to 1500 AD. The “Dark Ages” were marked by frequent, unjust wars, crusades & persecution. It was a time when Western civilization almost disappeared. And it was a time when the Roman Catholic Church was a world power. The term “Dark Ages” is used because it was a time of spiritual darkness and heartless brutality. Jesus appeared to Thyatira as “The Son of God, with eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet like fine brass”. Jesus is coming as The Judge.
The Church at Pergamos compromised The Faith, and allowed the seductive teachings of Balaam, and unbiblical teachings of the Nicolaitans to join the church. Ephesus had even been commended by the Lord for hating the acts of the Nicolaitans. Satan discovered that attacking and persecuting the church only caused her to grow in power, so he changed tactics, and joined with her, causing her to compromise her faith. Pergamos means “marriage”, and Satan seduced her with worldly ideas, and teaching teaching which she accepted, and it corrupted her. Jesus appeared to Pergamos with His Word; a sharp, two-edged sword. Jesus is ready to do battle against that which which is carnal and that which is spiritual.

The Church at Smyrna was being persecuted, and with that persecution came material poverty. Jesus said He understood their poverty, yet He said they were rich. The Christians in Smyrna were rich in the things that mattered; Righteousness, Peace and Joy. You can’t really measure your riches by your bank account. The true measure of riches is kept in heaven. The treasures you’ve laid up in heaven are your eternal riches. Many poor people on earth will be wealthy in heaven, and many wealthy people on earth will be impoverished in eternity. Christians should lay up for themselves treasures in heaven.
