When we look the letters that John wrote to the messengers of the 7 churches of Asia Minor, we see that many of the churches were not in good shape, but they still had lampstands.

When a congregation has a lampstand, then they are a congregation of God and Jesus is in the midst of them (Rev 1:13).

Here is the status of the 7 churches:

1. Ephesus Rev 2:1
–Left their first love
–Repent or your lampstand will be removed

2. Smyrna Rev 2:8
–Good report

3. Pergamos Rev 2:12
–Hold the doctrine of Balaam
–Hold the doctrine of Nicolaitanes
–Repent or I will fight against you with the sword of my mouth

4. Thyatira Rev 2:18
–Allowed Jezebel to seduce God servants to commit fornication and eat things offered to idols
–Repent or Jezebel will be cast into a bed of suffering
–Repent or those that commit adultery Jezebel will be thrown into great tribulation

5. Sardis Rev 3:1
–Have a name that you live but are dead
–Called to repent

6. Philadelphia Rev 3:7
–Good report

7. Laodiceans Rev 3:14
–Think you are rich and increased with good, but are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, naked
–Called to repent

One Response to “The 7 Churches of Revelation”

  1. 1. Paul Says:

    3Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

    4Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.

    5He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.

    I thought this was worth mentioning.
    Pray for me, Paul
