Revelations, A Study. section 2. Here in Section 2. Chapters, 1:16 thru 3:22. we will look atrepparttar sevens of Revelations. Lets take notice of Jesus giveing a discription of Himself in each letter. Rev. 1:19, Is a comandment of Jesus to John to writerepparttar 144276 things hereafter. Rev 1:20 The mystery ofrepparttar 144277 seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, andrepparttar 144278 seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars arerepparttar 144279 angels [Ministers] ofrepparttar 144280 seven churches: andrepparttar 144281 seven candlesticks which thou sawest arerepparttar 144282 seven churches. The angels ofrepparttar 144283 seven churches, are literal, Ministers, or Pastors. These angels are literial, Dan 10:13 Butrepparttar 144284 prince ofrepparttar 144285 kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one ofrepparttar 144286 chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there withrepparttar 144287 kings of Persia. Dan 10:20 Then said he, Knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee? and now will I return to fight withrepparttar 144288 prince of Persia: and when I am gone forth, lo,repparttar 144289 prince of Grecia shall come. ”Michael isrepparttar 144290 Angel of Israel.” Starting in Rev 2:1 we will take a look atrepparttar 144291 Seven Churches. Remember that Revelations is both, physical and Spiritual. Here arerepparttar 144292 Physical Churches. Definition of “UNTO”, [Middle English : un-, up to; see until + to, to; see to.Unto /Un´to/, conj. Until; till. [Obs.] ] Notice thatrepparttar 144293 word unto, is mentioned in each letter torepparttar 144294 Seven Churches. These letters were written torepparttar 144295 Angel [Minister] of each church. Why? Becauserepparttar 144296 Pastor or Ministers of Churches have much to answer for and His direction must come fromrepparttar 144297 Spirit. [James 3:1 My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receiverepparttar 144298 greater condemnation.] [Mar 13:11 But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, butrepparttar 144299 Holy Ghost.] "He that hath an ear, let him hear whatrepparttar 144300 Spirit saith untorepparttar 144301 churches” The Spirit of God isrepparttar 144302 one speaking to each Church and notrepparttar 144303 Angel. What is an Angel? 1. A MINISTER OR PASTOR OF A CHURCH, AS IN THE SEVEN ASIATIC CHURCHES. [ARCHAIC] 2. MESSENGER, A MESSENGER OF GOD. 3. A SPIRITUAL, CELESTIAL BEING, SUPERIOR TO MAN IN POWER AND INTELLIGENCE. IN THE SCRIPTURES THE ANGELS APPEAR AS GOD'S MESSENGERS. 4. Warier. 5.ATTENDANT 1.Ephesus. The city were worshippers ofrepparttar 144304 false god Diana, full of congeriours, witchcraft, Idolitors, ect. Now each church we see in these letters have some positive atributes ,we will concintrate onrepparttar 144305 bad. Rev 2:4 Nevertheless I have somewhat, [To some extent or degree] against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. The Church was not true torepparttar 144306 teachings of Christ. “and will remove thy candlestick [ Minister] out of his place, except thou repent. " “out of his place” The Angel of Ephesus. When you removerepparttar 144307 minister out ofrepparttar 144308 church you loose Spiritual Guidance. 2.Smyrna. Smyrna ( The City) became a center forrepparttar 144309 cult of emperor worship. Only two churches, Smyrna and Philadelphia were true to Christ. Great persecution befellrepparttar 144310 Church and its angel was burned alive. Rev 2:9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I knowrepparttar 144311 blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but arerepparttar 144312 synagogue of Satan. “the synagogue of Satan” This is what Christ calledrepparttar 144313 Jews at this time. The Jews broke their own laws atrepparttar 144314 murder ofrepparttar 144315 Angel of Smyrna.The Church still exists. 3.Pergamos. Antipas was murdered byrepparttar 144316 AEsculapiu worshipers. “Satans seet”, The idol AEsculapius. Balaam - lord ofrepparttar 144317 people; foreigner or glutton,repparttar 144318 son of Beor.(Num. 31:8; comp. 16)(Deut. 23:4)(Num. 23:7).Nicolaitans, Professing Christians who, introduce a false freedom, licentiousness. They embrased Idol worship. 4.Thyatira. Jezebel, Daughter of Ethbaal, Preistest, 2Ki 9:7 And thou shalt smiterepparttar 144319 house of Ahab thy master, that I may avengerepparttar 144320 blood of my servantsrepparttar 144321 prophets, andrepparttar 144322 blood of allrepparttar 144323 servants ofrepparttar 144324 LORD, atrepparttar 144325 hand of Jezebel. 2Ki 9:22 ...the whoredoms of thy mother Jezebel and her witchcrafts are so many? “Bright and Morning Star”,
