Revelation 2:7

7 He who has an 1aear, let him hear what the 2bSpirit says to the 3churches. To him who 4covercomes, to him I will give to 5deat of the 6etree of life, which is in the 7fParadise of God.


72 At the beginning of each of the seven epistles recorded in chs. 2 and 3, it is the Lord who speaks (vv. 1, 8, 12, 18; 3:1, 7, 14). But at the end of each epistle, it is the Spirit who speaks to the churches (vv. 7, 11, 17, 29; 3:6, 13, 22). This not only indicates that the Spirit is the Lord and the Lord is the Spirit, but it also emphasizes that in the darkness of the church's degradation the Spirit is vitally important, as indicated by the sevenfold intensified Spirit in 1:4. The same emphasis is seen also in 14:13 and 22:17.
