The Revelation Chapter 2 (The things that you see?)
This painting is according to Revelation and my story with the Holy Spirit.
To Angel of the Church of Ephesus.
The Lord has honored this couple for their walk of faith.
He knows that they have been patient with the wicked ones, but have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them, liars.
They have persevered and have not become weary. But what happened was that their first love for each other cooled.
Now they can still see each other's faces clearly, but The Lord warns that He will take the lampstands from their heads if they do not love each other as their own bodies.
But The Lord, on the other hand, knows that this couple hates the Nicolaitans. He hates them too.
For it is shameful even speak of those things which are done by them in secret.
Not only they do not have children even also break family ties.
So, The Lord says that if the couple will turn back to their first love and walk in the light again, He will eat them the fruit of life in heaven.
And to the angel of the church in Smyrna.
The Lord knows that their works, tribulation, and poverty.
But they are rich. Because they give many donations to Heaven through the church.
So, their money is piled up in the treasures of the house of God.
And the Lord says, gDo not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer, indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.h
And to the angel of the church in Pergamos.
At your place, there was a murder, and where you dwell, where Satanfs throne is indeed.
But people have kept their own faith. But in the meanwhile, some of those who get married the believers in another faith and choose a way of apostasy.
And I have a few things against you because you have there those who hold the propensity which burned in their lust for one another, men with men or women with women committing what is shameful.
Therefore, repent, or else I will come to you quickly and will fight against them with the sword of My mouth.
This time in the situation, no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark of the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Therefore, to him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat.
Be faithful until death, I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it.
It is the same name which is written in the Book of Life and shall not be hurt by the second death.h
@ And to the angel of the church in Thyatira.
The Lord says, gI know your works, love, service faith, and your patience, and as for your works, the last are more than the first.
Nevertheless, I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.
And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent.
Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds.
I will kill her children with an epidemic and also throw it into the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.
And all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts. And I will give to each one of you according to your works.
Now to you I say, and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as do not have those deeds which burned in their lust for one another, men with men or women with women committing what is shameful, in other words, the depths of Satan, I will put on you no other burden.
And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations.
eHe shall rule them with a rod of iron. They shall be dashed to pieces like the potterfs vessels.f
And I also will give you the morning star which had given your fathers from Me."
