Revelation 2:18

Revelation 2:18 “Write to the angel of the church in Thyatira: Thus says the Son of God, the one whose eyes are like a fiery flame and whose feet are like fine bronze

In this letter to the church in Thyatira Jesus is called the Son of God. This title of Jesus is seen in the Gospels and speaks to His unique relationship with God the Father. This also alludes to Psalm 2 where as the King/Messiah He will rule and judge with great power and authority. Jesus is also described here as having eyes like a fiery flame and feet like bronze (also Revelation 1:14-15). These images are picturesque of judgement (Daniel 10:6). Jesus commends the deeds in the church of Thyatira, but condemns their tolerance of the false teaching from the prophetess who leads people into sexual immorality and idolatry. There is no call to repentance in this letter because the time for their repentance had past. Thus, Jesus is coming in judgment against her and those that practice her deeds.

Jesus called them to no longer compromise true worship with idolatry, but to stand firm and persevere. It is important to note that such egregious evil can take place along side good deeds in the church. They had been serving well in the church, but living in sin outside of the church. It can be very easy to think that doing good deeds outweighs false teaching, immorality and idolatry. However, Jesus takes false teaching and idolatry very seriously, and He will judge with righteous judgment. May we watch closely that we don’t follow false teaching that leads to immorality and idolatry.

Self Reflection:

How consistent have you been in your walk with Jesus when it comes to serving well in the church and living a life pleasing to Jesus outside the church?
