THE SEVEN CHURCHES OF REVELATION
PERGAMOS—THE WORLDLY, CORRUPTED CHURCH
TEXT: Revelation 2:12-17
Revelation 2:12-17 KJV And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These
things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges; [13] I know thy works, and
where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and
hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr,
who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth. [14] But I have a few things against
thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac
to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols,
and to commit fornication. [15] So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the
Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. [16] Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and
will fight against them with the sword of my mouth. [17] He that hath an ear, let him
hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh 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 man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
