Play and Dr. Cheryl Davison, thank you for listening to truth matters. We are continuing our survey through the second chapter of Revelation last time we covered the church of Satan city at Pergamum and realized that Pergamum really was where Satan dwelt was the greatest city in Asia. It really suffer from compromise which is really a fatal mistake that can dilute the church. God often offers a remedy for sin. Jesus Christ offered a remedy of repentance, but promised hidden manna and a white stone to those who are looking to finish chapter 2 with the corrupt church or the adulterous church of Thyatira. In Revelation chapter 2 verses 18 to 29 but the last thing I'd like to remember about the church apartments is sent compromising on the word of God will cost you your life through the keyword apartment since keyword for us today that compromising on the word of God will cost you your life. Let's begin and chapter 2 verses 18 to 29, and to the angel of the church in Thyatira write these things says the son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire like I know your works. Love, service date and your patience. And as for your works. In the last or more than the first. Nevertheless 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 time to repent of her sexual immorality. She did not repent indeed I will cast her into a sick bed those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds.
I will kill her children with death and all the churches shall know that I am the searches the minds and hearts and I will give to each one of wording to your works now to you I say to the rest of thy entire half as many as do not have doctrine have not known that state. They say I will put on no other burden but hold fast what you have till I come. He who overcomes, and keeps my works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations.
He shoveled a lot of shall be dashed to pieces that, as I also have received from my father and I will give him the morning star. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches and all the churches up to this point see a pattern have genuinely commendable qualities marred by carelessness. One area that particular area of spiritual has the effect of rendering powerless.
The other positive qualities basically good, does not outweigh the bad, and really a lot of us are in these situations today.
We think the grace of God is enough to outweigh the bad. Simply operate careless actions and we think that were going to escape judgment because of the grace of God, but the grace of God forgives us of our sin does not necessarily escape us from the consequences of person to for the church at fire Tyra. This is the destination of the letter by attire was known for its commerce is located in a valley between two cities on a busy trade route running through Asia minor.
They were known for having bakers, bronze workers, clothiers, cobblers, weavers, tanners, dyers, potters. It seems to be the least important of the seven cities that she receives the longest of the seven letters it's really the city of the blue-collar listen to the designation of the Lord's letter these things says the son of God introduces himself as the son of God.
In verse eight, the son of God emphasizes his authority. He establishes that at the outset, and you will see why later. Who has eyes like a flame of fire.
He has an all seeing God means that really crises all. Nothing big, nothing can be kept from the searching gaze fire in particular means that nothing will stand before it can survive. It destroys everything in and destroys everything that comes in contact with said that nothing remains again here. Do we see any of these patterns in our modern day church Sunday or or even in our relationship God and examine this letter. CPC that are in them within yourself and know that the important thing is that God gives us time to that is the main that I want to hammer home the judgment of God may not be swift until next Dr. Cheryl David
