11- Thyatira

To the Angel of the Church in Thyatira  

Revelation 2:18-29

18] Write to the angel of the church in Thyatira:

Description of Jesus:

The Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass,

Says these things:

Attributes:

• 19] I know your works

• Your charity

• Your service

• Your faith

• Your patience

• Your works, and the last works will be more than the first works.

Shortcomings:

20] But I have a few things against you, because you tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit immoralities and to eat things sacrificed to idols. (21) I gave her opportunity to repent of her immortality, and she did not repent.

Warning:

22] I will cast Jezebel into a bed, and I will cast them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds. (23) And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he who search the minds and hearts: and I will give to every one of you according to your works.

Instructions:

24] To you and to as many in Thyatira, who do not follow Jezebel’s teaching and have not known what they call “the depths of Satan,” I will not put on you any other burden (25) but that you hold fast to that which you already have until I come.

Rewards:

To him that overcomes and keeps my works until the end:

• 26] I will give power over the nations, just as I received power over the nations from my Father. (27) And he shall rule the nations with a rod of iron, and they shall be broken to slivers as the vessels of a potter.

• 28] And I will give him the morning star.

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