“Faithful or Phony” Rev. 2, 7/21/13

JESUS CAME TO EACH INDIVIDUAL CHURCH with a description of Himself from Chapter One as: “in the midst of the seven Lampstands (churches) One like the Son of Man.” Jesus came to the suffering and persecuted church at Smyrna as “the first and the last, who was dead, and came to life”. Christ tells them He knows their “works, tribulation and poverty”… but Jesus says “You are rich.” He goes on to tell them to be faithful even unto death, and He will give them the crown of life.
Jesus then comes to the compromised church at Pergamos as the One who has the sharp, two-edged sword, warning them to repent or else “I will come to you quickly and fight against them (false teachers) with the Sword of My Mouth.” Will Jesus come to you with encouraging words to be Faithful through the persecution from Satan, Sin, Self and the System? Or will He come warning you to repent of following the False Teachers?
