Description of Christ

Promise to Overcomers



A reputation for wealth; one of the most powerful cities of the ancient world. Shrine to Artemis, a deity believed to be able to restore life to the dead.

Outwardly alive. Inwardly dead. Had so compromised with society that they were Christian in name only (there are a few who have not soiled their garments).

The one who holds the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars – completely aware of our weaknesses. He is in complete touch with his church.

They will be dressed in white. Their names will not be blotted out of the Book of Life. Christ will acknowledge them before God and his angels.



Even more wealthy than Sardis. Home to industries of banking, clothing, and medicine.

Neither cold nor hot. Wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked. Jesus has been effectively shut out of the church.

The Amen. The one whose word can be trusted without question.

Receipt of his love, discipline, and correction. An open invitation to the deepest fellowship possible with Christ, the Savior.
