Revelation 2:8

8 And to the messenger of the church in 1Smyrna write: These things says the 2aFirst and the Last, who became bdead and 3lived again:

83 Lived again refers to resurrection. The Lord suffered death and lived again. He entered into death, but death could not hold Him (Acts 2:24) because He is the resurrection (John 11:25). The suffering church needs to know Him as such a One also, so that she can endure any kind of suffering. However severe the suffering, the church will still be alive. The resurrection life of Christ can endure death.
