Revelation Chapter 2

Rev. 2:1 To the messenger of the Assembly of Ephesus write; these things says He that holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands;

Rev. 2:2 I know your works, and your labor, and your patience, and how you cannot bear those who are evil; and you have tried those who say they are apostles, and are not, and have found them liars;

Rev. 2:3 and have endured, and have patience, and for My name’s sake have labored, and have not fainted.

Rev. 2:4 Nevertheless I have something against you, because you have forsaken your first love.

Rev. 2:5 Therefore remember from where you have fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come to you quickly, and will remove your lampstand out of its place, unless you repent.

Rev. 2:6 But you have this that you hate the deeds of the Laity-Conquerors, which I also hate.

Rev. 2:7 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the Assemblies; to him that is overcoming will I give to eat of the Tree of Life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.

Rev. 2:8 To the messenger of the Assembly in Smyrna write; these things says the First and the Last, who was dead, and is alive;

Rev. 2:9 I know your works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but you are rich) and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

Rev. 2:10 Fear none of those things which you are about to suffer; behold, the Devil is about to cast some of you into prison, that you may be tried; and you will have tribulation ten days; be faithful to death, and I will give you a crown of life.

Rev. 2:11 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the Assemblies; he who is overcoming will not be hurt by the second death.

Rev. 2:12 And to the messenger of the Assembly in Pergamum write; these things says He who has the sharp two-edged sword;

Rev. 2:13 I know your works, and where you dwell, even where Satan’s throne is; and you clinging to My name, and have not denied My faith, even in those days in which Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwells.

Rev. 2:14 But I have a few things against you, because you have them there that prevailed by the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit sexual immorality.

Rev. 2:15 So in like manner you also have those who prevail by the teaching of the Laity-Conquerors, which is what I hate.

Rev. 2:16 Repent; or else I will come to you quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of My mouth.

Rev. 2:17 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the Assemblies; to him who is overcoming will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no one knows except he that receives it.

Rev. 2:18 And to the messenger of the Assembly in Thyatira write; these things says the Son of God, who has His eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet are like burnished bronze;

Rev. 2:19 I know your works, and love, and service, and faith, and your patience, and your works; and the last to be more than the first.

Rev. 2:20 Nonetheless, I have a few things against you, because you permitted that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce My slaves to commit sexual immorality, and to eat things sacrificed to idols.

Rev. 2:21 I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality; and she repented not.

Rev. 2:22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed of anguish, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds.

Rev. 2:23 And I will strike her children with death; and all the Assemblies will know that I am He who searches minds and hearts; and I will give to everyone according to your deeds.

Rev. 2:24 But to you I say, and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this teaching, and who have not known the depths of Satan, as they are saying; I will place on you no other burden.

Rev. 2:25 But that which you already have prevail until I come.

Rev. 2:26 And he that is overcoming and keeping My works to the end, to him I will give authority over the nations;

Rev. 2:27 and he will shepherd them with a staff of iron; as the vessels of a potter will they be broken to pieces; just as I received authority from My Father.

Rev. 2:28 And I will give him the Morning Star. 29 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the Assemblies.
