"To the angel of the Messianic Community in Pergamum, write: 'Here is the message from the one who has the sharp double-edged sword:
"I know where you are living, there where the Adversary's throne is. Yet you are holding onto my name. You did not deny trusting me even at the time when my faithful witness Antipas was put to death in your town, there where the Adversary lives.
Nevertheless, I have a few things against you: you have some people who hold to the teaching of Bil'am, who taught Balak to set a trap for the people of Isra'el, so that they would eat food that had been sacrificed to idols and commit sexual sin.
Likewise, you too have people who hold to the teaching of the Nicolaitans.
Therefore, turn from these sins. Otherwise, I will come to you very soon and make war against them with the sword of my mouth.
Those who have ears, let them hear what the Spirit is saying to the Messianic communities. To him winning the victory I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give him a white stone, on which is written a new name that nobody knows except the one receiving it."'
