                                   Pt.3  Pergamos…“The Compromising Church”

                                                              Revelation 2:12-17


Pergamos Background… 

               a. The Lord said…

                     Pergamos is where Satan’s throne is located.”  Vs. 13

 The Counselor….vs. 12

               “These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with the two edges”

        - The sword coming out of Christ’s mouth... is a reference to the Word 

                   and a symbol of its truth, power & authority, and the fact that Christ judges

                   men on the basis of the Word.

        - Thus, the sword of God’s Word separates believers from the world

                    and sinners from God.
