   2:15   So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate.

   I believe the 7 churches are the unfolding relationship with GOD from birth to completion.  Here you have what were deeds in the first church becoming doctrine in the 3rd.  I'm also looking at the escalating rewards to overcomers.

   2:17   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.   1  partake of the tree of life:   2   not touched by second death:   3   hidden manna and new name.

   The 4th church((Thyatira)) reminds me of the realities in the dark ages when the Roman church had unprecedented power in the affairs of men.  Those overcoming in this bleak setting were rewarded with: 

   2:26-28    And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. And I will give him the morning star.

   3:1   And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.

   Here the folly of the Roman church is becoming ever more evident to men.  The stage is being set for a foundational move by GOD.

   3:5   He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.

   Personal acknowledgment of a soul before GOD by His Son is AWESOME.

    3:8    I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

 this is the golden age of the gospel. After the dust had settled from the reformation, John Wesley, and many others spread the true gospel over all the earth.

   3:12    Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

   the greatest intimacy with GOD thus far given to overcomers.

   3:16   So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. 

   So GOD has become, old hat, in these times.  Many acknowledge Him, but behave as though He is a dottering old man who winks at His beloved children and their stubborn ways.  Nothing could be further from the truth, GOD is love, and will do best for His own at every point at all times. Those opposing this reality among men will be: spewed out of His mouth/body.

   3:17   Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

   Here we have another foundational reality of the last days = men as GOD stated at the tower of Babel, have achieved great progress in overcoming the challenges to their comfort and security.  Their basic understanding of their need for GOD has been greatly dulled. as the revel in their freedom to enjoy ever increasingly obtainable pleasure and comfort.  GOD speaks to whosoever will in this error prone time:  

   3:18-19   I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

   3:21   To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

   As the rewards become increasingly of eternal value, this is the final and greatest reward to overcomers.
