 SMYRNA

Chapter 2:1-7 Hover over Cross-reference

"Do not interpretations belong to God?" Genesis 40:8


8 “And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write:

Each Letter to ALL 7 Churches is Addressed to the Angel of that Church: Rev 2:1, 8, 12, 18, 3:1, 7, 14.
➥ Ephesus - Rev 2:1
➥  Smyrna - Rev 2:8
➥ Pergamum - 2:12
➥ Thyatira - Rev 2:18
➥ Sardis - Rev 3:1
➥ Philadelphia - Rev 3:7
➥  Laodicea - Rev 3:14


‘The words of the first and the last, who died and came to life.


In ALL 7 Letters to the Churches, Jesus is the Speaker & Provides a Brief Reference back to the description of Himself in the 1st Vision of Chapter 1 & foward to other descriptions of Himself in visions in latter chapters.
➥ Ephesus - Rev 2:1 quoting Rev 1:12-13, 16, 20
➥  Smyrna - Rev 2:8 quoting Rev 1:17, 22:13
➥ Pergamum - Rev 2:12 quoting Rev 1:16, 2:16, 19:15, 21

➥  Laodicea - Rev 3:14 quoting Rev 1:5, 19:11, 21:6


9 “‘I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich)

CONTRAST & OPPOSITE found with Laodicea - Revelation 3:17-18:
"For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing, not realizing that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked. I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, so that you may be rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself and the shame of your nakedness may not be seen, and salve to anoint your eyes, so that you may see."
Laodicea - "Gold refined in the fire" makes rich! - Revelation 3:17-19 

Poor yet Rich - 2 Corinthians 6:10
2 Corinthians 6:4-11 Contains 7 amazing parallels or similarities to the Church of Smyrna: 2 Cor 6:4 - Sufferings, 2 Cor 6:4 -Tribulation 2 Cor 6:5 -  Prison, 2 Cor 6:8 - Slander, 2 Cor 6:8 - Impostors, 2 Cor 6:9 -  Death, 2 Cor 6:10 - Poor yet Rich !

In ALL 7 Letters, Jesus expresses complete Awareness of the 7 Churches condition, good and lacking when He says to each, "I Know..."
➥ Ephesus - Rev 2:2
➥  Smyrna - Rev 2:9
➥ Pergamum - 2:13
➥ Thyatira - Rev 2:19
➥ Sardis - Rev 3:1
➥ Philadelphia - Rev 3:8
➥  Laodicea - Rev 3:22
Revelation 2:23 - I will strike her children dead. And all the churches will know that I am he who searches mind and heart, and I will give to each of you according to your works.
This gives deeper understand the meaning of the words,  Jesus "walks in the midst of the 7 golden lampstands" Rev 1:12-13, Rev 2:1.


and the slander of those who say that they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.

Jesus repeats the Same words to both Churches He Approves and offers no reproof or discipline - Philadelphia, Revelation 3:9
Biblical Definition of a REAL Jew: Romans 2:29, Deuteronomy 30:6

➥ Fake Jews include all Jews who reject Jesus: 1 John 2:22-23, 1 John 4:2-3 ,2 John 1:7,10
➥ Over 95% of Jews who Live in the State of Israel & around the world reject Jesus Christ as the Messiah and are still waiting for another messiah.
➥ YHWH's  Views of the Modern State of  Israel as "the Great City" & "Sodom & Egypt" Revelation 11:8:
➥ In the 7th Vial of WRATH at Rev 16:17-19, YHWH says in the future He will SPLIT the  the "Great City," Modern State of Israel into "3 parts!"
➥ The "8th King" or "Little Horn" who is "Anti-Christ" will make his home in the Modern State of Israel according to Daniel 11:36-45.
➥ The Star of David does not exist in the Bible. The Hexagram within a circle is the historic method to conjure & summon Demons. The Rothschild's are responsible for popularizing this satanic conjuring tool on the State of Israel Flag in 1948 and successfully selling it to the Laimstream Twiststianity Churches to adopt as a symbol from YHWH. All one needs to do is do an Image Search on the "Star of Remphan" of Acts 7:43 to see how the Devil has Corrupted Laimstream Twistianity Churches with the historic calling card of the Demons! 
➥ Link to Real History of Zionism video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lhEzo...
➥ Modern Israel has Replaced YHWH's words, the Torah & Biblical Prophets with the demonically conjured Babylonian inspired TALMUD.
In contrast, according to Revelation 21:1-7, NEW JERUSALEM is the Real Hope of the Future!
New Jerusalem comes "down from God out of heaven" (Rev 21:2, 3:12), NOT from the Earth.
 ➥ Will YHWH Bless a nation that has forgotten Him, does not keep His commands & rejects His Son? Only in the Land of the Devil. May YHWH bring the "Curses" on this Disobedient Oppressive Blood Guilty Nation described at Deuteronomy 28-32.
➥ 1 John 5:19 - "The whole world IS lying in the power of the wicked one," Including Lamestream Twistianity & the Modern State of Israel.
