    Hi Angelina, unfortunately I haven't kept any of the revelation studies, maybe If you have some time you can locate the general consent of them by looking at a few search results from a search engine query like:

    "what the spirit says to the churches revelation"

    it will take a while to find a good one, because many denominations centered writers do not want to honestly look at their own faults, the contrast what they think they stand for and what Jesus says they are part of is just a bit greater than expected.

    Thyatira is "Papal supremacy" period having a problem with Jezebel, but also note the different words for the people of the system "in charge" and the common believer. Quite different views than expected from a reformed point of view....

    from what I remember Sardis symbolizes the Protestant reformation period, but also note this comment: "thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead." Not a nice comment, isn't it. There is no life in them after all. Only a "few names" find a better verbal treatment.

    Philadelphia: small but true church, no mega churches here. Holy, true, holds keys, opens and shuts, prayers that get answered.

    Laodicea then the end-time church in general, almost no good words for them, and they don't even know their essential problem with Jesus. He is outside and knocks. Not inside as assumed. Lukewarm, wretched, blind, naked. What they have is not not what they think they have. How can they be so blind? Guess they are busy and operate in huge membership numbers. The mega church qualifies on all accounts if you read Jesus again when he contrasts the "MANY will say in that day...." with the "FEW that will enter" and the are on the "narrow path" etc.

    Acts 15
    36 After some days Paul said to Barnabas, “Let us return and visit the brethren in every city in which we proclaimed the word of the Lord, and see how they are. 37 Barnabas wanted to take John, called Mark, along with them also. 38 But Paul kept insisting that they should not take him along who had deserted them in Pamphylia and had not gone with them to the work. 39 And there occurred such a sharp disagreement that they separated from one another, and Barnabas took Mark with him and sailed away to Cyprus. 40 But Paul chose Silas and left, being committed by the brethren to the grace of the Lord. 41 And he was traveling through Syria and Cilicia, strengthening the churches.

    Have you ever wondered what happened to Barnabas??? :huh:

    All of a Christian's works and thoughts will be judged for reward. If you have lost all your rewards by sinning you will still go to heaven because you have eternal life.


    1 corinthians 3:11-15
    11For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
    12Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;

    13Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.

    14If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
    15If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
