BIBLE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF THE LAST DAYS

REVELATION 2 Pg 3

Thyatira

 

The greeting and description of Jesus

 

2:18 And unto the angel [messenger or pastor] of the church in Thyatira write;

[1] These things saith the Son of God, who hath

[a.] his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and

[b.] his feet [are] like fine brass;

The commendation

 

2:19 I know thy

[1] works, and

[2] charity, and

[3] service, and

[4] faith, and thy

[5] patience, and thy

[6] works; and

[a.] the last [to be] more than the first.

The admonition

 

2:20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because

[1] thou sufferest that woman Jezebel,

[a.] which calleth herself a prophetess,

[11.] to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and

[12.] to eat things sacrificed unto idols.

2:21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and

[1] she repented not.

 

2:22 Behold,

[1] I will cast

[a.] her into a bed [a sickbed], and

[b.] [I will cast] them that commit adultery with her

[11.] into great tribulation [no definite article for tribulation],

[aa.] except they repent of their deeds.

2:23 And

[2] I will kill

[a.] her children with death; and

[11.] all the churches shall know that

[aa.] I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and

[3] I will give

[a.] unto every one of you

[11.] according to your works.

The remedy and consequences for ignoring

 

2:24 But

[1] unto you I say, and

[2] unto the rest in Thyatira,

[a.] as many as have not this doctrine, and

[b.] which have not known the depths of Satan,

[11.] as they speak;

[3] I will put upon you none other burden.

 

2:25 But that which ye have [already]

[1] hold fast till I come.

The reward for obedience

 

2:26 And he that

[1] overcometh, and

[2] keepeth my works unto the end,

[a.] to him will I give power over the nations:

2:27 And

[b.] he shall rule them with a rod of iron [these saints shall rule the nations with a rod of iron (c/p. Ps. 149:5-9; Rev. 19:15)`];

[11.] as the vessels of a potter

[aa.] shall they [the nations] be broken to shivers:

[111.] even as I received of my Father.

2:28 And I will give him [these who overcome]

[1] the morning star [Rev. 22:16].

 

2:29 He that hath an ear, let him hear

[1] what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
