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.
