Hear what Jesus, having the sharp double-edged sword, says to the church in Pergamos. As we continue our study through Revelation 2, we read the commendations and corrections for the city where Satan was dwelling. Learn from the Bible the imminent danger in mixing with the world - the doctrine of Balaam. Here we are called to repent from sin. By the grace of the Lord, enormous blessing is for those who have an ear to hear what the Spirit is saying to these seven churches.
Sound the alarm! That is exactly what Jude, one of the half-brothers of Jesus, aimed to do. In light of the alarm sounding, what should you do?

Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.
What in the world does the world mean? Better asked, what in the Word does the world mean? As we read in 1 John 2, study three clear meanings of ‘world’ throughout the Bible: the physical earth, humanity and a carnal spiritual system. From the Garden of Eden, to the desert where Jesus was tempted, and still in our lives today, Satan uses three major plays against us. Learn and practice what Jesus did to overcome each of the enemy’s plays. Let’s go as radical as possible to Jesus Christ, according to the Word and His perfect will!
Satan is real. So what do we do? Study with us a Biblical perspective on Satan and how to stand firm in battle through Jesus Christ. Learn from Peter’s experience with Jesus, and be encouraged in sound wisdom as we read through some practical tools to resist the defeated devil.
