Jesus and His Church: Compromising at the Headquarters of Hell

Series: Jesus and His Church

February 14, 2021 | Dr. Wes George

Jesus calls the Pergamum church.

12 “And to the angel of the church in Pergamum write:

The One who has the sharp two-edged sword says this:            

Jesus commends perseverance.

13 ‘I know where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is; and you hold fast My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days of Antipas, My witness, My faithful one, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells.

He knows the difficulty of your location.

He knows the depth of your temptation.

Jesus confronts doctrinal perversion.

14 ‘But I have a few things against you, because you have there some who hold the teaching of Balaam, who kept teaching Balak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols and to commit acts of immorality.

15 ‘So you also have some who in the same way hold the teaching of the Nicolaitans.

Doctrinal perversion leads to idolatry.

Doctrinal perversion leads to immorality.

Jesus calls for repentance.

16 ‘Therefore repent; or else I am coming to you quickly, and I will make war against them with the sword of My mouth.

Repentance is NOT sorrow.

Repentance is NOT balancing the scales.

Repentance is a change of attitude.

Repentance is a change of direction.

Repentance is a change of destiny.

Jesus calls for you to listen.

17 ‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, to him I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, and a new name written on the stone which no one knows but he who receives it.’

You can have sustenance for today.

You can have direction for the days ahead.
