Letter From Patmos: Thyatira

Text: Revelation 2:18-29, 1 King 18:20-40


John explicitly cast the New Testament Nicolaitans as the Old Testament Balaam and Jezebel. Who then from the Old Testament could John be implicitly casting the motley crew of trades workers, farmers, cloth makers, grandparents, parents, brothers and sisters that made up the first century church in Thyatira, Asia Minor? The 21st century church in Lendrum, Alberta? The answer is easy. The implications profound. Sunday. June 17. 10am.
