THE SEVEN CHURCHES OF REVELATION
SMYRNA—THE CHURCH UNDER GREAT PRESSURE
TEXT: Revelation 2:8-11
Revelation 2:8-11 (KJV) And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These
things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive; [9] I know thy works,
and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them
which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. [10] Fear none
of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into
prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto
death, and I will give thee a crown of life. [11] He that hath an ear, let him hear what
the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second
death.
