Jesus’ message to the believers at Ephesus
« on: October 20, 2019, 07:29:03 AM »
Book of Revelation 2
Jesus’ message to the believers at Ephesus
 1  ‘Write this to the *angel of the *church at Ephesus: This is the message from the one who holds the 7 stars. He holds them in his right hand. He also walks among the 7 lights in gold *lampstands. note

 2  I know everything that you do. You have worked much for me. You have been patient through trouble. I know that you will not let bad men stay among you. Some men among you say that God has sent them to teach you. But he did not send them. You have thought carefully about what they say. And you have discovered that it is not true.

 3  You have been patient and strong. You have had trouble because you are my servants. And still you have not become tired of obeying me.

 4  But I have something to say against you. You loved me very much when you first believed in me. You do not love me as much now.

 5  So remember how much you once loved me. Be sorry about the bad things that you do. Do again the good things that you did at the beginning. Unless you are sorry about the bad things, I will come to you. Then I will take away your *lampstand from its place.

 6  You *hate what the Nicolaitans are doing. It is very good that you *hate it. I also *hate it. note

 7  God’s Spirit is speaking to you in the *churches. You should recognise that the Spirit is speaking. Everybody who recognises that should listen. They should listen to what he says. I will let everyone who wins against *Satan eat my fruit. This fruit is from the tree that makes us alive. And this tree grows in God’s garden.’ note

Jesus’ message to the believers at Smyrna
 8  ‘Write this to the *angel of the *church at Smyrna: This is the message from the one who is first and last. He was dead, and he became alive again.

 9  I know that bad people are hurting you very much. I know that you are poor. But really, you are rich. Some people there say that they are *Jews. But I know that they say bad things about you. And I know that these things are not true. So they are not really my people, who obey me. They are really a group of *Satan’s people.

 10  I know that trouble will soon come to you. But do not be afraid. Listen! The *Devil will cause some of you to go to prison. He wants to see whether you will continue to believe me. And you will have trouble and pain for 10 days. But go on believing, even if you must die. You may have to die because you believe. But if you continue to believe, you can win against the *Devil. And then I will give you a gift because you have won. I will cause you to live with me always. I will give you this gift, as they give a *crown to a winner. note

 11  God’s Spirit is speaking to you in the *churches. You should recognise that the Spirit is speaking. Everybody who recognises that should listen. They should listen to what he says. The second death will not hurt anyone who wins against *Satan.’ note

Jesus’ message to the believers at Pergamum
 12  ‘Write this to the *angel of the *church at Pergamum: This is the message from the one who has the sharp *sword. That *sword has two edges.

 13  I know where you live. It is the place where *Satan sits as king. But still you go on *serving me. You remember Antipas. He continued to speak about me. Some people who live in Pergamum killed him because of that. You saw it happen. But you continued to believe me and you told others about me. And you still do this, even there in that place where *Satan lives. note

 14  But I have a few things to say against you. Some people among you do what Balaam taught. He taught Balak to do what was wrong. And Balak caused Israel’s people to want to do wrong things. He caused them to eat food that people had given to false gods. And he caused them to have sex with people who were not their husbands or wives.

 15  Also, some people among you do the bad things that the Nicolaitans teach.

 16  So be sorry and stop doing all these bad things. If you are not sorry, I will come to you quickly. Then I will fight against those bad people with my *sword. This *sword comes out of my mouth. note

 17  God’s Spirit is speaking to you in the *churches. You should recognise that the Spirit is speaking. Everybody who recognises that should listen. They should listen to what he says. I will give my special food to everyone who wins against *Satan. I will also give them a white stone. And I will write a new name on that stone. Nobody will know that name except the person who receives it.’ note

Jesus’ message to the believers at Thyatira
 18  ‘Write this to the *angel of the *church at Thyatira: This is the message from the Son of God. He has eyes that burn like fires. His feet shine like bright yellow metal.

 19  I know everything that you do. I know how much you love me. I know that you go on believing me. I know that you are my servants. I know that you are patient and strong. I know that you do more work now than you did before.

 20  But I have something to say against you. You let that woman Jezebel teach you. She says that she speaks God’s messages. But she leads my servants the wrong way. God’s rules say that someone should have sex only with their wife or their husband. But she teaches my servants to have sex with other people. And she teaches them to eat food that people have given to false gods.

 21  I have given her time to be sorry about these bad things. But she refuses to stop having sex with other men.

 22  She has done bad things on a bed. So I will hurt her on a bed. I will cause a lot of trouble for those who loved her. They did bad things because of her. They will have very bad trouble unless they are sorry about those bad things. They must stop doing the bad things that she taught them to do.

 23  And I will kill those who obey her. Then all the *churches will know that I look deep inside people. I know what they really want. I know what they really think. And I will give each person among you what you ought to have. I will give you this because of what you have done.

 24  But you other people in Thyatira, you have not done what Jezebel taught. You have not learned what they call ‘ *Satan’s deep secrets’. I say something else to you. I will not ask you to do anything that is too difficult. I do not want you to be like people who must carry something heavy.

 25  Only be careful that you continue to believe in me. Believe me until I come.

 26  Everyone who goes on doing what I say will win. They will win against *Satan if they obey me until the end. I will give those people authority to rule all the countries on the earth.

 27  They will rule those countries with an iron stick. They will rule like someone who breaks clay pots into pieces. I have received this authority from my Father.

 28  I will also give those people the morning star.

 29  God’s Spirit is speaking to you in the *churches. You should recognise that the Spirit is speaking. Everybody who recognises that should listen. They should listen to what he says.’ note
