The Church of Smyrna

Only One of TWO Churches Christ Had Nothing Bad to Say About

TEXT: Revelation 2:8-11

  1. AD 100- AD 300 - Ten persecutions were hurled at this church that had no condemnation

  2. The Lord Jesus Christ's description of himself concern his deity and incarnation

  3. "First and The Last" - had no beginning; has no ending - John 1:1-5, Genesis 1:1

  4. "Which was dead, and is alive" - Refers to the cross and the resurrection

  5. Smyrna's persecution contributed to her poverty, yet she was rich

  6. Tribulation and persecution drive us to God not to money (Word of Faith)

  7. Jude, 2 Peter, 2 Timothy 3 - Filthy lucre sign of the last days

The Jews That Are Not, But Are The Synagogue Of Satan

  1. Jesus says the religion of the Jews who have rejected Christ is of Satan

  2. Jews who do not believe in Christ are not considered Jews by the Lord

  3. Nationality means nothing to God when it comes to Salvation!

  4. John the Baptist rebuked this group in Matthew 3:9

  5. Paul addressed this in Romans 9:6-8

  6. Only those who are children of the promise are true Jews (CHRIST)!

  7. the term synagogue of Satan refers to any worship that is not of Christ!

  8. Jews will worship the Antichrist the snyagoge of Satan during Tribulation!

  9. The church has same problem

  10. Any gospel that does not have the CROSS at its center is ANOTHER GOSPEL! Galatians 1:8, 2 Corinthians 11:4, 13-15
