Revelation 2:7 "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches …"
Jesus wrote letters to seven churches, which are presented in the opening of the Book of Revelation. He addressed issues that were occurring in each of these early Christian churches. For example, the church at Sardis had lost its energy and fallen asleep. Other churches were tolerating false teaching. Jesus called the churches to account, and He also promised them victory.
These messages were sent to the churches, but they were also meant for individuals. The messages are just as relevant for us today.
