John 8:55 (TPT) (Jesus speaking to the religious hypocrites) “But in reality, you’ve never embraced Him (God) as your own. I know Him, and I would be a liar, like yourselves, if I told you anything less than that. I have fully embraced Him, and I treasure His every word.”
The Church of Smyrna Rev 2:8-11
Rev 2:9 (TPT) I am aware of all the painful difficulties you have passed through and your financial hardships, even though, in fact, you possess rich treasure. And I am fully aware of the slander that has come against you from those who claim to be Jews but are really not, for they are a satanic congregation.
Rev 2:10 (KJV) Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
Rev 2:11 (KJV) He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.
