Unto the angel of the assembly of Ephesus write: ‘These things saith He that holdeth the seven stars in His right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks (menorot);
2 I know your works, and your labour, and your patience, and how you canst not bear them who are evil; and you have tried them who say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars;
3 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for My name’s sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.
4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against you, because you have left your first love.
5 Remember therefore from whence you are fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto you quickly, and will remove your candlestick (menorah) out of its place, except you repent.
6 But this you have, that you hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the assemblies (ekklesias). To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God (Elohim).”’
8 And unto the angel of the assembly in Smyrna write: ‘These things saith the First and the Last, who was dead, and is alive; – Isa 41:4, 44:6, 48:12
9 I know your works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but you are rich) and I know the blasphemy of them who say they are Jews (Yehudim), and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
10 Fear none of those things which you shalt suffer. Behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that you may be tried; and you shall have tribulation ten days; be you faithful unto death, and I will give you a crown of life.
11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the assemblies (ekklesias); He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.”’
12 And to the angel of the assembly in Pergamos write: ‘These things saith He who hath the sharp sword with two edges:
13 “I know your works, and where you dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is; and you holdest fast My name, and hast not denied My faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.
14 But I have a few things against you, because you have there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Yisrael, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.
15 So have you also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.
16 ‘Repent; or else I will come unto you quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of My mouth.
17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the assemblies (ekklesias). To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth except he that receiveth it.”’
18 And unto the angel of the assembly in Thyatira write: ‘These things saith the B47Humanity of El (YHWH), who hath His eyes like unto a flame of fire, and His feet are like fine brass:
19 “I know your works, and love, and service, and faith, and your patience, and your works; and the last to be more than the first.
20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel (Iyzevel), who calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce My servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.
21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.
22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.
23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the assemblies (ekklesias) shall know that I am He who searcheth the reins and hearts; and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.
24 But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and who have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.
25 But that which you have already hold fast till I come.
26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth My works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations;
27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers; even as I received of My Father. – Psa. 2:8–9
28 And I will give him the morning star.
29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the assemblies (ekklesias).”’
