Jesus Christ to the Thyatirians
1 And to the angel/messenger of the ekkelsia in Thyatira write:
The Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet are like white/burnished bronze, says this:
2 I know your acts, and your love and faith and service and perseverance/endurance, and that your deeds of late are more/greater than the first.
3 But I have this against you, that you tolerate/pardon your woman, Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaching and deceiving My slaves/bond-servants, leading them astray, as to commit prostitution and to be eating what is sacrificed to idols.
4 And I have given her time to repent; though she is not willing to repent of her prostitution.
5 Behold, I will cast her upon a bed/couch (of sickness), and those committing adultery with into great tribulation/affliction, unless they repent of her/their acts.
6 And I will kill her children with pestilence/death; and all the ekklesias will know that I am He who searches the minds/kidneys and hearts; and I will give to each one of you according to your acts/deeds.
7 But I say to you, the rest who are in Thyatira, who do not hold this teaching, who have not known the deep things of Satan, as they call them --- I place no other burden on you.
8 Nevertheless what you have, hold fast until I come.
9 And he who is conquering/overcoming and keeping My acts until the end/consummation, to him I will give authority over the nations;
10 and he shall shepherd them with a rod/club of iron, as the vessels of the potter are broken/crushed to pieces, as I also have received/obtained authority from My Father;
11 and I will give him the morning star.
12 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the ekklesias.
