[Revelation Ch.2: The 7 Churches]

V. Church of Thyatira  

     This is a rich city, noted for its color dyes. It was probably evangelized by the Ephesian church.

     "Thyatira" means "continual sacrifice." It denotes the Dark or Middle Age, with its Roman Catholic doctrine of the Mass.

REV 2:18  ...his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass

     Christ's burning passion, as He saw the corruption of His church. In keeping with the seriousness of the situation, Christ is called the Son of God, rather than the Son of Man (cf. 1:13-15).

REV 2:20  ...that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants

     The following false practices were further introduced into the church--

     A.D.  786 Worship of images and relics

     A.D.  850 Use of "holy water"

     A.D. 1059 Celibacy of priests

     A.D. 1184 The Inquisition

     A.D. 1215 Transubstantiation

     A.D. 1220 Adoration of the Host (Communion)

     A.D. 1229 Bible forbidden to laymen

     A.D. 1546 Apocrypha added to Bible

     A.D. 1854 Immaculate Conception of Mary
