Revelation 2:22-29 -- The CORRUPT Church (Part 2)

"Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds. I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts. And I will give to each one of you according to your works.

“Now to you I say, and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as do not have this doctrine, who have not known the depths of Satan, as they say, I will put on you no other burden. But hold fast what you have till I come. And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations—

‘He shall rule them with a rod of iron;
They shall be dashed to pieces like the potter’s vessels—
as I also have received from My Father; 28 and I will give him the morning star.

“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”’
Revelation 2:22-29

Pastor Danny Forshee.  Great Hills Baptist Church.  May 25, 2014:


  1. Retribution (vv. 22-23) - Morally correct, fully deserved, punishment
    Galatians 6:7
  2. Command (v. 25)
    Hold onto what you have until He comes
    - Stay focused on Jesus
    - Sometimes God uses tough times to build up our spiritual reserves so we can live for Him.
  3. Promises (vv. 24, 26-28)
    A. No other burden
    B. Power over the nations
         - Psalm 2:8-9
    C. The Morning Star
  • Jesus warns that He will go so far as to take the lives of those who commit sexual immorality within the Church.
  • "Live like you wanna live" is a popular type of 'Christianity,' but it ain't the Biblical kind.
  • Jesus calls this Jezebelian heresy "the depths of Satan."
  • "You can't practice Christianity without...being in a local Church.
  • There's been corruption and immorality in the Church since the beginning of the Church.
    • God takes it PERSONALLY.
  • Those who persevere with reign with Christ in the Millennial kingdom.
  • "Eager anticipation of future glory with the Lord of Glory will help you through some inglorious times here on Earth."
  • God says, if you stay faithful with Him, that in the end you will win.
