"Write this to the angel of the church in Pergamum: "The One who has the sharp, double-edged sword says this:
I know where you live. It is where Satan has his throne. But you are true to me. You did not refuse to tell about your faith in me even during the time of Antipas, my faithful witness who was killed in your city, where Satan lives.
"But I have a few things against you: You have some there who follow the teaching of Balaam. He taught Balak how to cause the people of Israel to sin by eating food offered to idols and by taking part in sexual sins.
You also have some who follow the teaching of the Nicolaitans.
So change your hearts and lives. If you do not, I will come to you quickly and fight against them with the sword that comes out of my mouth.
"Everyone who has ears should listen to what the Spirit says to the churches. "I will give some of the hidden manna to everyone who wins the victory. I will also give to each one who wins the victory a white stone with a new name written on it. No one knows this new name except the one who receives it.
