To the Church in Pergamum

Revelation – The letter to the compromising church in Pergamum

For the church in Pergamum, being where Satan lives and has his throne means there will be plenty of false teachers and false prophets.  The question remains for this study though – were Jesus’ words a reminder, a warning or a wake-up call?

The same is true for us.  In a way, these words are for all of us.  Remember what Jesus said about Satan and this world.  The entire passage is important for us to remember and to live out.  It’s full of important things for us – the Holy Spirit, living as Jesus taught us, not being afraid, having peace.  And for this topic, especially verses 30 and 31 at the end, regarding the prince of this world – Satan.

Let the dead bury the dead

Let the dead bury the dead.  What does that even mean?  How can one dead person bury another one?  Actually, the more common translation is “let the dead bury their own dead”.  But still – we’re not talking a horror movie here.  This is a quote from the Bible.  From Jesus.  I don’t remember ever reading about this verse in a book.  Don’t remember hearing it in a sermon either.  I only remember reading it in the Bible.  Right now though, I feel like I’m living it.
