Rev. 3:7-13
(Evening Service)

The City……
•   Was the YOUNGEST of the seven cities.
•   Was founded to be a center of Greek CULTURE and language.

The Commendation….
•   The church was small in numbers, but had a POWERFUL impact on the city.
•   The believers did not deviate from obedience, proving the genuineness of their LOVE for Christ.
•   They remained LOYAL regardless of the cost.
•   The Christians PERSEVERED faithfully through all of their difficulties.

The Promises……
•   Their entrance into the blessings of SALVATION by grace was guaranteed.
•   The church’s enemies would be COMPLETELY humbled and defeated.
•   The church will be delivered from the TRIBULATION.

The Command……
•   The members of the church were to hold fast what they have—remain FAITHFUL.

The Counsel……
•   Eternal blessings to the one “who overcomes:”
>>They will have an eternal place of HONOR in temple of God.
>>Writing the “name of My God on him, the believer,” signifies that all true Christians BELONG to God.
>>Christians have eternal CITIZENSHIP in heaven’s capital city, the New Jerusalem.
>>Christ promises believers His “new name” which represents the FULLNESS of His person.

The Exhortation…..
•   Believers must obey the truths found in each letter of the SEVEN churches.
