AN OUTLINE AND OVERVIEW
Strict on doctrine but forgot
their First Love.
willing; being burned alive for the sake of the gospel
when the Church marries the world
We are called to be separated from the world;
not to be joined with it
A State Church that has temporal power.
Has forgoten what the gospel of Christ is all about.
THE FIRST 3 ARE A GROUP
[ The promise to the overcomer are post scripted
and sugested that they have
an historical termination]
THE LAST 4
[ The promises are in the body of the letter which causes me to believe
that they endure to the end]
ANOTHER THING THE LAST 4 HAVE THAT THE FIRST 3 DON'T
[is that these last 4 letters have an explesit reference to the Second Coming of Christ as eluded to in the letter]
IT IS CONSPICUS BY OMITTION IN THE FIRST 3
THYATIRA is explesitly promised to go into tribulation
PHILLIDELPHIA is explesit that it would Not. It will be delivered from the time of trial. That it is Raptured Out.
LAODECIA is problematic. It obviously depends on individual issues,
As they all do actually.
