THE CHURCH OF THYATIRA

January 20, 2012

The church of Thyatira was located in a city that had a large amount of trade guilds, such as bakers, tanners, potters, and linen workers.

Jesus introduces Himself with authority to this church as a judge and discerner.

He acknowledges their toil, love, convictions, endurance, and ministry. However, he rebuked them for permitting a false prophetess to teach, promote fornication, and condone digestion of foods sacrificed to idols.

Jesus says he gave this prophetess and opportunity to repent but she refused. The consequence of her actions and her followers were severe along with generational curses. Jesus reminds them; their reward results from the intent of their heart and what controls them.

Rejecters of the prophetess are exhorted to keep pure and not to give in. To the overcomer is given the promise of receiving Christ and rulership in His millennium kingdom. 

The characteristic of this church is a growing church; their state is a compromising, corrupt church.

Remember, though you maybe abounding in God, do not accept erroneous teachings. God wants us to be seekers of truth.
