The Seven Churches

Revelation 2-3

There were more than seven churches in the Roman province of Asia Minor. There were Colosse and Hierapolis, for instance, not mentioned at all by John. The seven churches addressed were doubtless selected by the risen Lord because of the conditions they embodied. The letters contain practical instruction. That is, they were addressed to seven churches then in existence to remedy conditions that then prevailed. The letters contain perennial instruction, for the conditions that existed in these seven churches have existed in churches from that day to this. The letters contain prophetic instruction, for, as many have pointed out, taken in the order in which they are addressed, the seven churches give us seven cameos of the entire church age.
