Let’s look at each church and their positive and negative points, the result of their sin, commands given to, and the meaning of the churches name.
slide7
Ephesus was a celebrated city in Asia Minor, and was about 40 miles south of Smyrna.
  • Its people were distinguished for refinement of manners, and also for luxury, for music and dancing, and for the seductive arts festivals.
ephesus
Ephesus
  • 1. Ephesus means ‘permitted - desirable’(Acts 20:17-32, Ps.105:14, Is.65:1, Ps. 19:8-11) – as in to date – left their first love
smyrna
Smyrna
  • 2.Smyrna means ‘ myrrh’ – sweet fragrance - used for medicine to deaden pain, – anointing oil – preparing a bride (Esther 2:12, Rev. 5:8)- also embalming - coming persecution – myrrh must be crushed to give off it’s aroma, so the church will be crushed through tribulation.
  • Note – in scripture, it is always used as a anointing oil mix, drink(with wine), or perfume (especially for lovers), except one time in John 19:39 to embalm Jesus.
pergemum
Pergemum
  • 3.Pergamum means ‘fortified-height, tower’(Judges 9:51, II Sam.22:51, Psalm 61:3, Proverbs 18:10, Micah 4:8, Luke 14:28, Luke 22:35-37)) – -They loved money and power more than Jesus, also loved pleasure. If they don’t repent, God will discipline them through battle.
thyatira
Thyatira
  • 4.Thyatira = “sacrifice of labor – a perfume to comfort in affliction(Acts 16:14-27, Psalm 107:41, Is.48:9-11)” – They tolerate sin and immorality. If they don’t repent, He will give them sickness.
slide34

Sardis was in an ideal location in the plain of the River Hermus Valley. It was the meeting place of several major  trade routes.  Sardis was guaranteed commercial prosperity.  It was built on a 1500 foot high plateau with steep cliffs on three sides and a narrow road leading to the city on the fourth side.  This made Sardis virtually impenetrable to attack.  Sardis was so blessed the river which flowed through the town carried gold dust. 

sardis35
Sardis
  • 5.Sardis = “red (like metal being refined) – prince of joy – (Matt. 16:3, Rev. 6:4, Is. 9:6+)” – They are asleep and have soiled garments. No righteous acts. If they don’t repent, Jesus will come like a thief. They will miss it and be judged.
phily
Phily
  • 6.Philadelphia = “brotherly love” (Romans 10:12,13)- Jesus loves them, they will be kept from the ‘hour of testing’ - testing = discipline, judgment. They will be kept from the trumpet judgments.
laodicia
Laodicia
  • 7.Laodicea = “justice of the people” (Col.2:1,2; Is. 30:18, I Thess. 4:18, Rev.6:9-12, Matt. 24:29-31, Matt. 10:23, ) they are luke warm, mediocre Christians – He will discipline (justice – punishment to teach a lesson) them – and then knock on the door of their heart.
slide44
The meaning of each church tells the story of the church that will be here during the 70th week of Daniel: Not the descriptions of the churches, but the meaning of their name.
slide45
The church will be permitted to exist and even be desirable (Ephesus) in the beginning of the 70th week, it will be a medicine (Smyrna) for deadening the pain the world is suffering and become anointed with extra oil, as a bride, preparing for her groom. The church will have tribulation for ten days. Like myrrh, during this time of crushing, it will give off it’s sweetest aroma. During this time it will fortify itself (Pergamum) and take refuge in the tower of the Lord – partaking in hidden manna, laboring sacrificially for the Kingdom (Thyatira). For those who remain faithful, the church will be a fragrance that comforts during difficult times (still Thyatira), and will be spared the wrath. Through labor and persecution the church will be refined by fire, turning red as hot metal (Sardis) and will look for the coming (Sardis) Prince of Joy.
slide46
They will truly love one another (Philadelphia) and the bride will make herself ready. God will give them an open door that no one can shut. Their hope will be in the return of Christ, and they will comfort one another with news of His soon return. It is then that the bride will have made herself ready. The groom will come and receive her. When He comes, He will bring those who have died in Him, and those who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them. They will stand before the bema (judgment,reward) seat of Christ (Laodicea), presented as gold refined by fire of tribulation, sweet incense (fracencense), and myrrh (an anointed bride), and partake in the marriage supper of the Lamb, being raptured prior to the hour of testing which begins with the Trumpet judgments and leads into the bowls of wrath that will be poured out on this earth, finally bringing justice for the people (Laodicea).
