In Revelation Chapter 2, beginning in verse 12 we see the Worldly Church. It is the church that has begun to follow other paths and has left the teaching of the Apostles for the worldly teaching of  those who wish to destroy the Way of Christ.

Rev 2:12-16 NKJV  “And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write, ‘These things says He who has the sharp two-edged sword:  (13)  “I know your works, and where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is. And you hold fast to My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days in which Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells.  (14)  But I have a few things against you, because you have there those who hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit sexual immorality.  (15)  Thus you also have those who hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.  (16)  Repent, or else I will come to you quickly and will fight against them with the sword of My mouth.

Immorality was beginning to destroy the church in Pergamos, there was a move toward the worldly sins of those around them. This is not the end of course for those who will resist this false teaching, and stay true to the things of God, walking with Jesus, and keeping the faith. Now we will look at another church:

Rev 2:18-29 NKJV  “And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write, ‘These things says the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet like fine brass:  (19)  “I know your works, love, service, faith, and your patience; and as for your works, the last are more than the first.  (20)  Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.  (21)  And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent.  (22)  Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds.  (23)  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.  (24)  “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.  (25)  But hold fast what you have till I come.  (26)  And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations—  (27)  ‘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.  (29)  “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” ‘

Many of the mainline churches have fallen into the trap set by Satan to make them decide to practice false doctrines, and to allow sexual immorality to reign in the place of the doctrine of the scriptures. These are the churches that bless Planned Parenthood and the killing of innocent human life, babies if you will. They also are willing to allow sexual perverts to become leaders of their churches and even of geographical areas of their denominations. Some have already begun to die as true believers in Jesus will be forced out of their churches. Worldly pleasures take the place of the Lord of the Universe, He who died and is alive, who has promised to come back for His people. We may not know when but we do know He is true and will do what He has said he will do. He is the way:

Joh 14:5-6 NKJV  Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?”  (6)  Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

Time is growing short, because the church of Jesus Christ must be taken out of this world before the true End Times begin. What we see now may very well be the birth pangs of the coming tribulation. We of course do not know when the Lord will come for His church, but, we should be found working for the kingdom when he does.

Time to decide, do you wish the worldly pleasures of the Jezebel’s of the world, or do you want the wonders of heaven. Life or death which is it you want. Choose now fellow human beings, tomorrow may not come for you.
