The Letter To the Angel of the Church in Pergamos

Revelation 2:12-17

12] To the angel of the church in Pergamos write;

Description of Jesus:

He who has the sharp sword with two edges

Says these things:

Attributes:

• 13] I know your works, and that you dwell where Satan’s seat is.

• You hold fast my name and have not denied my faith, even in those days in which Antipas, my faithful martyr, was slain among you, where Satan dwells.

Shortcomings:

14] But I have a few things against you, because:

• you have there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to cast a stumblingblock in front of the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols and to commit immoralities.

• 15] You also have them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.

Warning:

16] Repent; or else I will come to you quickly and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.

17] He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches;

Reward:

To him that overcomes will I give to eat of the hidden manna. I will also give him a white stone, and in which a new name written. No man knows this new name except him who receives the name.
