D. The Church in Thyatira --
The Church in Apostasy
18 And to the messenger of the church in 1aThyatira write: These things says the 2bSon of God, He who has 3ceyes like a flame of fire, and His dfeet are like shining bronze:
19 I aknow your 1bworks and love and faith and service and your endurance and that your last works are more than the first.
20 But I have something aagainst you, that you tolerate the 1woman bJezebel, she who calls herself a 2prophetess and cteaches and 3leads My slaves astray to commit 4dfornication and to eat 4eidol sacrifices.
21 And I gave her time that she might arepent, and she is bnot willing to repent of her fornication.
22 Behold, I cast her into a 1bed, and those who commit aadultery with her, into 2great tribulation, unless they repent of her works;
23 And her children I will 1kill with death; and all the churches will know that I am He who asearches the 2inward parts and the hearts; and I will give to each one of you according to your bworks.
24 But I say to you -- the rest in Thyatira, as many as do not have this ateaching, who have not known the 1bdeep things of cSatan, as they say -- I put no other burden upon you;
25 Nevertheless what you have ahold fast 1until I bcome.
26 And he who 1aovercomes and he who keeps 2bMy works cuntil the end, to him I will give 3dauthority over the nations;
27 And he will 1shepherd them with an airon rod, as bvessels of pottery are broken in pieces, as 2cI also have received from My Father;
28 And to him I will give the 1amorning star.
29 He who has an 1aear, let him hear what the bSpirit says to the churches.
