The Descriptions of the 7 Historic Churches

Secondly, you have to know the interpretation of Scripture concerning these 7 historical churches. John is describing the 7 historical churches, but it's a book of prophecy, remember. So you'll want to ask yourself, what is the prophecy concerning these two chapters? When you study those chapters (2 and 3) you'll discover that the Church, that's the Christians, are on earth and John describes what it was like here on earth during the Church Age. Jesus told him to write what he saw and heard, and that he did. And it's recorded in Revelation chapters 2 and 3.

The description of these 7 historical churches show us three things:

  1. the description of these seven churches fits, in chronological order, 7 periods of church history;
  2. the description of these seven churches also fits the character and conduct of each church here on earth throughout the Church Age, and;
  3. the description of these 7 churches fits the life style of each Christian living on earth throughout the Church Age.

That is what those 7 historical churches represent, these 3 descriptions, which are given above.
