Key Verse:12. And to the messenger of the church in Pergamos write: These things says He who has the sharp two-edged sword:

Topic:Two churches committed spiritual fornication
Emphasis:The church should be a pure virgin betrothed to one husband (1Cor 11:2). Heresy lures and stumbles believers and leads them to commit spiritual fornication and to eat things sacrificed to idols. (vv14, 20) The church in Pergamos “holds the teaching” (v14), the church in Thyatira “tolerates” many of these heresies, so the Lord said He will “make war with them with the sword of My mouth”(v16), “I am He who searches the inward parts and the hearts” (v23).
Meditate:Our Lord has “the two-edged sword”(v12), He also “has eyes like a flame of fire, and [His] feet are like shining bronze”(v18). Eyes indicate that Lord is the one who searches the inward parts and the hearts, and shining bronze indicates judgment. Think about the three aspects of the Lord Jesus’s judgment.
Prayer:Lord, give me the heart that fears you, to know that you are coming to judge. So that I could be an overcomer daily, enjoying “the hidden manna” (v17) and “the morning star” (v28).
