The book of Revelation opens with seven letters to seven churches. Before we look at these letters as a whole, let’s briefly look at the seven cities where the recipients lived. Sardis (Revelation ) This letter addresses Sardis, a “dead” church3 Jesus’ oracle to Ephesus challenges a loveless.

The Greek name for the book of Revelation, Apokaʹlypsis (apocalypse), means “Uncovering” or “Disclosure.”This name indicates the meaning of Revelation —it uncovers matters that had been hidden and discloses events that would happen long after it was apostle John penned the Revelation The seven churches the age of 92 while exiled as a prisoner of Rome on the.

The trip of a lifetime landed in my lap—visiting the Seven Churches of Revelation. Until recently, I didn’t even know all seven churches were located in modern-day Turkey. A friend and I flew to Izmir, Turkey, where we rented a car and drove to all seven churches in a quick, three-day trip.

In the end, we saw a lot of rocks. Don’t get me. The seven churches are named for their locations. The Book of Revelation provides descriptions of each Church. Ephesus (Revelation ): known for having labored hard and not fainted, and separating themselves from the wicked; admonished for having forsaken its first love (); Smyrna (Revelation ): admired for its tribulation and poverty; forecast to suffer.

So, although there may be some truth to the seven churches representing seven eras, there is far too much speculation in this regard.

Our focus should be on what message God is giving us through the seven churches. The seven churches are (1) Ephesus (Revelation ) - the church that had forsaken its first love (). W hen you study the Book of Revelation, one of the first things that you will look at are the seven churches listed in Revelation chapters 2 and 3.

There you will see seven actual letters from Jesus — one to each church. In the letters He applauds and chastises each church and He offers them advice on how to get back on track.

The short letters in Revelation chapters two and three are addressed to these specific seven churches: Ephesus: The church that had abandoned its first love for Christ (Revelation ).; Smyrna: The church that would face severe persecution (Revelation ). Pergamum: The church that needed to repent of sin (Revelation ).

Thyatira: The church. The "seven early churches" really existed. In the main text of the general significance of various cultural groups is also mentioned.

It is also possible to explore the question of whether qualities similar to those of the "7 churches" are present within today’s churches or groups within churches and Christian movements. John, in turn, passed the message along to “the seven churches which are in Asia” ().

He was following the instruction Jesus Christ had given him in a vision while he was on the island called Patmos: “What you see, write in a book and send to the seven churches which are in Asia, to Ephesus, to Smyrna, to Pergamos, to Thyatira, to Sardis, to Philadelphia, and to.

The Book of Revelation addresses seven letters to seven churches in Asia Minor (modern-day Turkey) (Revelation ). Each letter, as proclaimed by Jesus and recorded by John the Apostle, declares the triumphs and failings of the recipient churches and warns each congregation to repent.

The advice in these letters is prophetic, forewarning present-day. These lessons for kids on the seven churches of Revelation are easy to use and all about Jesus.

The first three lessons are an introduction to the book of Revelation covering the setting, the type of writings, and a quick tour of the themes of Revelation.

Helpful. Comment Report abuse. Sandra George. out of 5 stars Excellent. Reviewed in the United States on Ap Reviews:   The Seven Churches of Revelation, also known as The Seven Churches of the Apocalypse and The Seven Churches of Asia, are seven major churches of Early Christianity, as mentioned in the New Testament Book of Revelation.

“Churches” in this context refers to the community or local congregations of Christians living in each city, and not merely to the. The seven churches in Revelation are literal churches from the first century AD. However, the seven churches in Revelation also have spiritual significance for churches and believers today.

Indeed, the primary purpose for John writing his letters to the seven churches was to deliver Christ’s "report card" for the churches of that time. The seven churches of Revelation described in Revelation chapters 2 through chapter 3 are seven literal churches at the time that John the apostle was writing Revelation.

Though they were literal churches in that time, there is also spiritual significance for churches .The seven churches of Asia were a subset of the assemblies to which Hebrews, and First and Second Peter were written. As the following verses show, the entire book of Revelation was written to the seven churches that were in Asia, not just chapters two and three.
