REV.#8~2:18-29~pt.2 THYATIRA-590-1570- THE CORRUPT CHURCH

Today we’ll continue our study of this great book of prophecy, if there has ever been a time that the book of “THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST” should be taught it’s certainly in our day and time. Our nation is in the biggest mess it’s ever been in, and the rest of the world as well, and it will continue to get worse.

God will not nor can He bless any nation that turns its back on His chosen people Israel, the “apple of His eye”. Israel will get by without the U.S. but the U.S. cannot prosper without Israel. Our stand with Israel is the only reason God has blessed this nation down through the years, but it appears that Obama is changing all of that.

Genesis 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee:

Obama has made the statement,” AMERICA IS NO LONGER A CHRISTIAN NATION” on world wide T.V. ---but God has made another statement in;

Psalm 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.

I’m fearful for our nation, because of what she has become. The voters of our nation have put in place an Administration that is apostate to the core. Watch and see what God sends on this country.

Just remember that Gods Word tells us in;

Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. —And that same truth applies to nations.

Christians keep your sins confessed up and under the Blood of Jesus; He could call out His True Church any time now. We are certainly living in the Laodiceian church period.


With that being said lets get our mind on today’s message, today we’re still talking about the 4th church named here in chapters 2 and 3, the Lord doing all the talking, all red writing, lets keep in mind that these 7 churches that are mentioned here in these two chapters were real churches at that time, there was more than just these 7 there in Asia Minor in that day but the Lord chose these particular 7 churches as they represent the entire period of time that the church would be here on earth,. The names of these 7 churches once again are.

Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamos, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea.


Ephesus was of the Apostolic church period, { 30-100 A.D.} and the Lord Jesus, Who is the Head of His True church rebuked them, for leaving their 1st love, the Lord warned them that He would remove their Candle stick,{the church} except they repent, and He, as He always does, kept His Word.

The Church of Ephesus is no longer there because their “Candle stick” the church had been removed, they allowed their light to go out, their witness.


And then the 2nd church, the church of Smyrna, {100-350 A.D.} this was the most persecuted period of the True church age period; many gave their lives because of their faith in Jesus Christ.

Smyrna still has a flourishing Church there today; only the name today is Izmir there in modern Turkey.

And then ~ Pergamos, the 3rd church period, the Compromising Church, {350 to about 590 A.D.} Called “the greatest city in Asia Minor,” the Capital of Asia Minor,

Pergamos had the first temple dedicated to Caesar. The state took over the church.

The town of Pergamas still exists today. The name has been changed to Bergma there in modern Turkey.

And let me say that each of these 7 churches is still with us today in some form or fashion. Which one of these 7 churches do you attend? There are more Laodecian assemblies that any thing else, the people go to church and are all involved in programs without much true gospel preaching, their pretenders but not possessors of the Holy Spirit.


This is our 2nd week in the study of the church of Thyatira, the corrupted church; it’s the longest letter of the 7. This church existed in the period that become known as the Dark Ages, and this age certainly was dark for the Church. --590-1570 there about---Fox’s book of Martyrs has much to say about this Dark Age period how that millions of Christians were Martyred under Catholicism.

Listen as I read today’s text.

2:18-29 18And unto the angel** of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass; 19I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.

20Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.
