To the angel of the Church in Ephesus write; These things says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands;
I know your works and your toil and your patience, and that you cannot tolerate evil men. And you have tested those who call themselves apostles, and they are not, and you have found them to be false.
And you have patience, and you have endured much for my Name’s sake, and you have not grown weary. Nevertheless I have this against you, that your first love you have left.
Remember therefore from where you have fallen, and repent and do the first works. Otherwise, I am coming to you swiftly and I will remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent.
Whoever has an ear should listen to what the Spirit is saying to the Churches. To the one who overcomes I will grant the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the Paradise of my God.
And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things says the First and the Last, who was dead and came to life;
I know your works and your affliction and your poverty; but you are rich; and I know the blasphemy of those who say that they are Jews, and they are not, but they are a synagogue of Satan.
Do not fear of what you are about to endure. Behold, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison so that you may be tested, and you will have oppression for ten days. Be faithful to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life.
Whoever has an ear should listen to what the Spirit is saying to the Churches. The one who overcomes will not be harmed by the second death.
And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things says He who has the sharp two-edged sword;
I know your works and where you dwell; where Satan's throne is. And you hold fast to My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days in which Antipas who was My faithful martyr, was killed among you, where Satan dwells.
But I have a few things against you, because you have there some who hold the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to throw a stumbling block before the children of Israel and to eat things sacrificed to idols and to commit sexual immorality. Thus you also have some who hold to the teaching of the Nicolaitans, likewise.
Repent therefore. Or else, I am coming to you quickly and I will make war against them with the sword of my mouth.
Whoever has an ear should listen to what the Spirit is saying to the Churches. To the one who overcomes I will give of the hidden manna, and I will give a white stone, and on the stone a new name is written, which no one knows but the one who receives it.
And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things says the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet like fine brass;
I know your works and your love and your faith and your service and your patience, and I know that your last works are more abundant than the first ones.
But I have a few things against you, because you allow your woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and teaches and seduces My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. And I gave her time to repent, but she refuses to repent of her sexual immorality.
Behold, I will throw her into a bed of pain and those who commit adultery with her into great suffering, unless they repent of her works, and her children I will kill with death, and all the Churches will know that I am the one who searches the minds and hearts, and I will render to each one of you according to your deeds.
Now to the rest of you I say in Thyatira, as many as do not have this doctrine, those who have not known the depths of Satan, as they say; I will not put any other burden on you. But hold fast what you have till I come.
And to the one who overcome and who keep my works to the end, I will give authority over the nations, and he will rule the nations with a rod of iron, shattering them like clay pots, as I also have received of my Father. And I will give him the morning star.
