The Message to the Church in Ephesus

2"Write this letter to the angel of the church in Ephesus. This is the message from the one who holds the seven stars in his right hand, the one who walks among the seven gold lampstands.G32G1577G2179G1125G3592G3004G2902G2033G792G1722G846G1188G3588G4043G1722G3319G2033G5552G3087 2"I know all the things you do. I have seen your hard work and your patient endurance. I know you don't tolerate evil people. You have examined the claims of those who say they are apostles but are not. You have discovered they are liars.G1492G4675G2041G2532G4675G2873G2532G4675G5281G2532G3754G1410G3756G941G2556G2532G3985G5335G1511G652G2532G1526G3756G2532G2147G846G5571 3You have patiently suffered for me without quitting.G2532G941G2532G2192G5281G2532G1223G3450G1223G3686G2872G2532G2577G3756G2577 4"But I have this complaint against you. You don't love me or each other as you did at first!G235G2192G2596G4675G3754G863G4675G4413G26 5Look how far you have fallen! Turn back to me and do the works you did at first. If you don't repent, I will come and remove your lampstand from its place among the churches.G3421G3767G4159G1601G2532G3340G2532G4160G4413G2041G1490G2064G4671G5035G2532G2795G4675G3087G1537G846G5117G3362G3340 6But this is in your favor: You hate the evil deeds of the Nicolaitans, just as I do.G235G5124G2192G3754G3404G2041G3531G3739G2504G3404 7"Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches. To everyone who is victorious I will give fruit from the tree of life in the paradise of God.G2192G3775G191G5101G4151G3004G1577G846G3528G1325G5315G1537G3586G2222G3739G2076G1722G3319G3857G2316

The Message to the Church in Smyrna

8"Write this letter to the angel of the church in Smyrna. This is the message from the one who is the First and the Last, who was dead but is now alive.G2532G32G1577G4668G1125G3592G3004G4413G2532G2078G3739G1096G3498G2532G2198 9"I know about your suffering and your poverty—but you are rich! I know the blasphemy of those opposing you. They say they are Jews, but they are not, because their synagogue belongs to Satan.G1492G4675G2041G2532G2347G2532G4432G1161G1488G4145G2532G988G3588G3004G1438G1511G2453G2532G1526G3756G235G4864G4567 10Don't be afraid of what you are about to suffer. The devil will throw some of you into prison to test you. You will suffer for ten days. But if you remain faithful even when facing death, I will give you the crown of life.G5399G3367G3739G3195G3958G2400G1228G3195G906G1537G5216G1519G5438G2443G3985G2532G2192G2347G1176G2250G1096G4103G891G2288G2532G1325G4671G4735G2222 11"Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches. Whoever is victorious will not be harmed by the second death.G2192G3775G191G5101G4151G3004G1577G3528G91G3364G91G1537G1208G2288

The Message to the Church in Pergamum

12"Write this letter to the angel of the church in Pergamum. This is the message from the one with the sharp two-edged sword.G2532G32G1577G1722G4010G1125G3592G3004G2192G3691G4501G1366 13"I know that you live in the city where Satan has his throne, yet you have remained loyal to me. You refused to deny me even when Antipas, my faithful witness, was martyred among you there in Satan's city.G1492G4675G2041G2532G4226G2730G3699G4567G2362G2532G2902G3450G3686G2532G720G3756G720G3450G4102G2532G1722G2250G1722G3739G493G3450G4103G3144G3739G615G3844G5213G3699G4567G2730 14"But I have a few complaints against you. You tolerate some among you whose teaching is like that of Balaam, who showed Balak how to trip up the people of Israel. He taught them to sin by eating food offered to idols and by committing sexual sin.G235G2192G3641G2596G4675G3754G2192G1563G2902G1322G903G3739G1722G1321G904G906G4625G1799G5207G2474G5315G1494G2532G4203 15In a similar way, you have some Nicolaitans among you who follow the same teaching.G3779G2192G4771G2532G2902G1322G3531G3739G3404 16Repent of your sin, or I will come to you suddenly and fight against them with the sword of my mouth.G3340G1490G2064G4671G5035G2532G4170G3326G846G1722G4501G3450G4750 17"Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches. To everyone who is victorious I will give some of the manna that has been hidden away in heaven. And I will give to each one a white stone, and on the stone will be engraved a new name that no one understands except the one who receives it.G2192G3775G191G5101G4151G3004G1577G846G3528G1325G5315G575G2928G3131G2532G1325G846G3022G5586G2532G1909G5586G2537G3686G1125G3739G3762G1097G1508G2983

The Message to the Church in Thyatira

18"Write this letter to the angel of the church in Thyatira. This is the message from the Son of God, whose eyes are like flames of fire, whose feet are like polished bronze.G2532G32G1577G1722G2363G1125G3592G3004G5207G2316G3588G2192G846G3788G5613G5395G4442G2532G846G4228G3664G5474 19"I know all the things you do. I have seen your love, your faith, your service, and your patient endurance. And I can see your constant improvement in all these things.G1492G4675G2041G2532G26G2532G1248G2532G4102G2532G4675G5281G2532G4675G2041G2532G2078G4119G4413 20"But I have this complaint against you. You are permitting that woman—that Jezebel who calls herself a prophet—to lead my servants astray. She teaches them to commit sexual sin and to eat food offered to idols.G235G2192G3641G2596G4675G3754G1439G1135G2403G3588G3004G1438G4398G1321G2532G4105G1699G1401G4203G2532G5315G1494 21I gave her time to repent, but she does not want to turn away from her immorality.G2532G1325G846G5550G2443G3340G1537G846G4202G2532G3340G3756 22"Therefore, I will throw her on a bed of suffering, and those who commit adultery with her will suffer greatly unless they repent and turn away from her evil deeds.G2400G1473G906G846G1519G2825G2532G3431G3326G846G1519G3173G2347G3362G3340G1537G846G2041 23I will strike her children dead. Then all the churches will know that I am the one who searches out the thoughts and intentions of every person. And I will give to each of you whatever you deserve.G2532G615G846G5043G1722G2288G2532G3956G1577G1097G3754G1473G1510G3588G2045G3510G2532G2588G2532G1325G1538G5213G2596G5216G2041 24"But I also have a message for the rest of you in Thyatira who have not followed this false teaching ('deeper truths,' as they call them—depths of Satan, actually). I will ask nothing more of youG1161G5213G3004G2532G3062G1722G2363G3745G2192G3756G5026G1322G2532G3748G1097G3756G1097G899G4567G5613G3004G906G1909G5209G3756G243G922 25except that you hold tightly to what you have until I come.G4133G3739G2192G2902G891G3739G302G2240 26To all who are victorious, who obey me to the very end, To them I will give authority over all the nations.G2532G3528G2532G5083G3450G2041G891G5056G846G1325G1849G1909G1484 27They will rule the nations with an iron rod and smash them like clay pots.G2532G4165G846G1722G4464G4603G5613G4632G2764G4937G2504G5613G2504G2983G3844G3450G3962 28They will have the same authority I received from my Father, and I will also give them the morning star!G2532G1325G846G4407G792 29"Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.G2192G3775G191G5101G4151G3004G1577
