  • These letters aren’t just a history lesson!

  • Today we will continue considering what Jesus thinks of the church by looking to the church in Smyrna.

He who has an ear

He Who Has An Ear

Smyrna is a church that is passing through martyrdom, & this would apply to many churches throughout the Roman empire.

We can learn a lot from Jesus’ words to this church that received no condemnations from the Lord.


He who has an ear revelation 2 8 11

“He Who Has An Ear” – Revelation 2:8-11

  • We can find comfort in the resurrection of the Lord, and what that means for us.

  • The Lord observes and notes our works… our troubles

    • And He assures us of the true riches in Him.

  • We’ve been reminded that one of the true measures of faith – is that we will not allow fear to stop us.

  • Tribulations are but for a time

    • If you remain faithful unto death, the Lord will give you a crown of life.

  • This message is for us, just as much as it was for the brethren in Smyrna.

    • Those who overcome shall not be hurt by the 2nd death!
