Revelation Chapter 2

New Testament / Book of Revelation / Chapter 2

1-6 To the angel of the church in Ephesus write; These things says he who holds the seven stars in his right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks; I know your works, your labor, your patience, and how you can not bear them who are evil: and you have tried them who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars: And have persevered, and have patience, and for my name's sake have labored, and have not fainted. Nevertheless, I have somewhat against you because you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come to you quickly, and will remove your candlestick out of its place, except you repent. But this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.

7 He who has ears to hear let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches; To him who overcomes I will give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

8-10 To the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things says the first and the last, who was dead, and is alive; I know your works, tribulation, and your poverty, but you are rich. And I know the blasphemy of them who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. Fear none of those things which you shall suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that you may be tried; and you shall have tribulation ten days: be ye faithful to death, and I will give you a crown of life.

11 He who has ears to hear let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches; He who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death.

12-16 To the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things says he who has the sharp two-edged sword; I know your works, and where you dwell, even where Satan's seat is: and you hold fast my name, and have not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwells. But I have a few things against you because you have there those who hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit sexual immorality. So have you also them who hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. Repent, or else I will come to you quickly and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.

17 He who has ears to hear let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches; To him who overcomes I will give the hidden manna to eat and will give him a white stone and on the stone, a new name written which no man knows except he who receives it.

18-23 To the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things say the Son of God, who has his eyes like to a flame of fire, and his feet like fine brass; I know your works, charity, service, faith, and your patience; and your works, the last are more than the first. Notwithstanding, I have a few things against you because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce my servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. And I gave her space to repent of her sexual sin, and she did not repent. Behold, I will cast her into a sickbed, and them who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am he who searches the minds and hearts: and I will give to every one of you according to your works.

24-28 But to you I say, and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and who have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you no other burden. But hold fast to that which you already have till I come. And he who overcomes, and keeps my works to the end, to him I will give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter they shall be broken to pieces: even as I received from my Father, and I will give him the morning star.

29 He who has ears to hear let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
