                                           Don’t Compromise! (#3 - Pergamum)

Revelation 2:12-17

 Dr. Simon Goncharenko

21 Fellowship, SBC  

June 5, 2011

 

 

  1. Pergamum did well at blooming where they were planted – vv. 12-13.
    1. By clinging to His name
    2. By staying faithful
  2. Pergamum’s problem was their tolerance of compromise – vv. 14-15.
    1. They gave Satan an inch and he became a ruler
    2. They must have thought themselves too mature to be affected by compromise
  3. Pergamum’s only solution was to repent immediately – vv. 16-17.
    1. If not – war was coming (on a collective level)!
    2. If so – heaven was their reward (on an individual level).

The best way to make God known wherever He places us is by separating ourselves completely from any compromise: doctrinally or practically.
