The Message to Pergamum
12“And to the angel of the church in Pergamum write: These are the words of him who has the sharp two-edged sword:13“I know where you are living, where Satan's throne is. Yet you are holding fast to my name, and you did not deny your faith in me even in the days of Antipas my witness, my faithful one, who was killed among you, where Satan lives.14But I have a few things against you: you have some there who hold to the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the people of Israel, so that they would eat food sacrificed to idols and practice fornication.15So you also have some who hold to the teaching of the Nicolaitans.16Repent then. If not, I will come to you soon and make war against them with the sword of my mouth.17Let anyone who has an ear listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches. To everyone who conquers I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give a white stone, and on the white stone is written a new name that no one knows except the one who receives it.
The Message to Thyatira
18“And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write: These are the words of the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and whose feet are like burnished bronze:19“I know your works—your love, faith, service, and patient endurance. I know that your last works are greater than the first.20But I have this against you: you tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophet and is teaching and beguiling my servants to practice fornication and to eat food sacrificed to idols.21I gave her time to repent, but she refuses to repent of her fornication.22Beware, I am throwing her on a bed, and those who commit adultery with her I am throwing into great distress, unless they repent of her doings;23and I will strike her children dead. And all the churches will know that I am the one who searches minds and hearts, and I will give to each of you as your works deserve.24But to the rest of you in Thyatira, who do not hold this teaching, who have not learned what some call ‘the deep things of Satan,’ to you I say, I do not lay on you any other burden;25only hold fast to what you have until I come.26To everyone who conquers and continues to do my works to the end,
I will give authority over the nations;27to rule them with an iron rod,
as when clay pots are shattered—28even as I also received authority from my Father. To the one who conquers I will also give the morning star.29Let anyone who has an ear listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches.
