Revelation 2:19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.

  2. Smyrna - Martyr church - 100-300 AD - Rome hurled 10 bloody persecutions against the church

  3. Pergamos - State church - 300 AD to 500 AD. Constantine great legalized Christianity making it state religion of Roman Empire - Invasion of paganism into church

  5. Sardis - AD 1500 - Luther - Justification of faith

  6. Philadelphia - Missionary church - AD 1800 to AD 1900s

The seven churches were chosen by the Holy Spirit! And portray the entirety of the church age.

  1. Ephesus

  2. Smyrna

  4. Thyatira

  5. Sardis

  6. Philadelphia

  1. Some in this church as wrong as it was continued to love the Lord

  2. The Lord knew who they were - AND their works

  3. "Works mentioned twice, with the last being in a negative sense, meaning they were depending on this instead of Christ and the Cross

  4. Six things to commend Thyatira: 1. Works, 2. Charity, 3. Service, 4. Faith, 5. Patience, 6. Increased works

  5. Catholicism proclaims faith by WORKS

  6. Bible Christianity is FAITH IN CHRISTS and what he did for us at the Cross


  1. Law and grace cannot co-exist

  2. Catholicism is a religion of works as it most "religion"

  3. Christianity is relationships and FAITH in what Christ did at the Cross alone

  4. Salvation by works depends on man's capacity to produce them

  5. Salvation by faith depends upon God's ability to perform them

  6. Under works, God stands still and sees what man can and cannot do

  7. Under grace man stands still and RESTS in what God has done!

  8. Galatians outlines this in the story of Hagar and Sarah

  9. Hagar represents works; Sarah represents grace

  10. Abraham's impatience and works brought forth Ishmael
