A message to those under this church…read Revelation 2:12~17
12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;
13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.
14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.
15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate.
16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.
17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
While the ‘Mother church’ (as in mama mary) has been around for a long time with its false doctrines and heresies, we see new churches rising up in this modern time subtle and appealing: the Mega church, (curiously Pergamos’ name is defined as ‘elevation’-look it up)… a warning that though the church (people) has held fast God’s name and not denied the faith (a martyr even died while in this church), there are 2 doctrines here which the Lord warns about: the doctrine of Balaam and Nicolaitane. So-called leaders are causing the people to fall by a stumbling block and cause the others to commit sin and be turned to idols. Remember this doctrine of Balaam, we’re told that this is about wanting the rewards of wickedness rather than following or obeying God (read the story in Numbers 22-25 then 31). The leaders are casting a stumbling block for God’s people to fall away or worship in vain and sin, most commonly through vanities and temporal things, selfish things. These are very diversive doctrines, remember they’re at the seat of Satan…But the Lord tells us to ‘Repent’ and the Lord will fight against them (these in the church) with the sword of His mouth (the Bible-our only defensive weapon). He who has an ear let him hear, God has a wonderful gift to those who overcome. No one will know it except him who receives it! that’s the gift of salvation. Praise the Lord.
