This week we look at the next church along our journey around Asia Minor and the Seven letters in the Book of Revelation that Jesus wrote to them through His servant John.
And this letter to the church in Pergamum is reminding the people there to be on the lookout for false teachers.
The church had been doing well in remaining faithful to Christ against the persecution of those outside the church, but they were at risk of being undone from within through false teachers who were encouraging them to take part in pagan feasts and practice immorality.
Jesus tells them to watch out for this false teaching, and calls them to repent.
And to those who do, who are victorious, Jesus promises them manna (the good food from heaven), a white stone (used to indicate innocence and acquittal at judgement day), and a new name (being chosen by God).
May God bless you as we hear his message, and as we are victorious.
