VICTORY

THE REWARD OF THE CONQUERER

A study of Revelation

slide2

“Authority over all the Nations…”

  • Thyatira was the least known and least important church mentioned
  • The city was home of various trade guilds
  • The guilds were closely tied to pagan idolatry
slide3

“Authority over all the Nations…”

  • Jesus is here portrayed as having eyes like fire and feet like burnished bronze
  • An intense penetrating gaze which sees the true nature of its object
  • Purity and strength; the power to trod over the enemy
slide4

“Authority over all the Nations…”

  • “Jezebel” is most likely figurative, representing an influential woman in the church
  • Jezebel stands distinct from Balaam in her more direct approach
  • This woman was likely teaching that idols are nothing and so pagan feast were an acceptable compromise
slide5

“Authority over all the Nations…”

  • The “reward” figures are taken from Psalm 2
  • The Psalm describes the futility of the kings of earth in standing against the purpose of God
  • The Psalm serves as an assurance of God’s victory
  • Through our King we rule victorious!
slide6

“Authority over all the Nations…”

  • The Morning Star is a figure of hope, peace and security
  • Even in the darkest night we can hope in the morning star
  • The world which persecutes us places faith in a waning god while we have faith in the one who has yet to even demonstrate His full power
slide7

“Clothed in white garments”

  • Sardis was the seat of commerce
  • The home of modern money
  • Known for the love of luxury and pleasure
  • Sardis was very confident in its own security
slide8

“Clothed in white garments”

  • This church had a good reputation but bad character
  • There is no mention of persecution here
  • Perhaps the greater danger is a life of ease
slide9

“Clothed in white garments”

  • Wake up – be vigilant, recognize the situation
  • Remember –why did you come to Christ?
slide10

“Clothed in white garments”

  • White garments – purity and full advantage in the sacrifice of the lamb
  • The book of remembrance is a figure intended to instill confidence in the faithful
  • To confess our name indicates son-ship and inclusion
