TOPIC — Pergamos: The Compromise Church (I) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 7 October 2021)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Matthew 11
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Revelation 2:12-17
12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;
13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.
14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.
15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate.
16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.
17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
MEMORY VERSE: “Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.” – Revelation 2:16
A compromising church cannot truly bear the life and the power of Jesus.
PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
LET THE STRONGHOLD OF COMPROMISE IN YOUR SOUL CATCH FIRE AND BURN TO ASHES, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
The third letter of Jesus Christ was written to the church in Pergamos. Pergamos was the greatest city in Asia. It was the capital with a very popular library that had more than two hundred thousand books. It was a great religious centre with two major shrines. One was dedicated to Zeus, the principal pagan deity. The second was built for Asclepius who was called “The Saviour”. He was supposed to be the healing god. Asclepius was symbolised by a serpent. That was why God referred to Pergamos as the seat of satan.

Revelation 2:14-15 (our Fire Scripture) says, “But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication. So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate.” Balaam was a false prophet of the Old Testament who sold his services to an ungodly king and advised the Midianite women to tempt the Israelites to compromise their faith through idolatry (i.e worshipping false gods or anything in place of the one true God) and immoral behaviour (Numbers 22:5,7; 25:1-2; 31:16). For this reason, Balaam represents corrupt and deceptive teachers or preachers or any believer who leads or influences God’s people to compromise with worldly beliefs and behaviours, all for the sake of selfish interests or personal advancement.
Beloved, by the two verses above, Jesus was saying that there were some people in the church of Pergamos who were teaching exactly the same thing that Balaam taught Balak. These types of people taught that once you are saved, you can do anything you like. They claimed that they can commit any sin as long as they come back to God to ask for forgiveness later, forgetting that even though God is Love, He is also a Consuming Fire. Hope you are not having the spirit of Balaam in you. Are you a sheep or goat in the church? May the grace to be a true ambassador of the Kingdom fall upon you, in the name of Jesus.
- Spirit and power of compromise, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Fire from the mouth of the Lord, consume my enemies, in the name of Jesus.
- Arrows of weariness, die, in the name of Jesus.
- My life, receive spiritual revival fire, in the name of Jesus.
- Avengers of the past, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Spirit of frustration, depart from my life, in the name of Jesus.
- Negative spiritual deposit in my life, catch fire, in the name of Jesus.
