Pergamum: In the Shadow of Satan's Throne

Pergamum: In the Shadow of Satan's Throne

Series: Seven
Date: July 6, 2014 By: Guest Speaker Campus: Cedar Lake



To a church struggling as outsiders and succumbing to the weaknesses of seeking satisfaction, Jesus says that they are known and loved and that he is enough. This message was given by Mike Wittig, director of college-age ministry, at the Cedar Lake campus as part of the Seven: The Churches of Revelation teaching series.


12 "And to the angel of the church in Pergamum write: 'The words of him who has the sharp two-edged sword. 13 "'I know where you dwell, where Satan's throne is. Yet you hold fast my name, and you did not deny my faith even in the days of Antipas my faithful witness, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells. 14 But I have a few things against you: you have some there who hold the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, so that they might eat food sacrificed to idols and practice sexual immorality. 15 So also you have some who hold the teaching of the Nicolaitans. 16 Therefore repent. If not, I will come to you soon and war against them with the sword of my mouth. 17 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, with a new name written on the stone that no one knows except the one who receives it.' Revelation 2:12 — Revelation 2:17 ESV
