The Church of Thyatira, Revelation 2:18–29:
• Commendation, vv. 18–19 Good works, love, service, faith, patience—greater than before
• Rebuke/Correction, vv. 20–24 Tolerance of Jezebel, sexual immorality, unrepentance by her followers, certainty of judgment unless they repent
• Promise to Overcomers, vv. 25–29

As with Smyrna, note the additional commands: “Hold fast … till I come … and keeps My works until the end … I will give power over the nations … and … the morning star.” This authority and decoration will only be given to “overcomers” who also hold fast to the end. This is consistent with 2 Timothy 4:6–8; James 1:12; Hebrews 6:11–12; 10:22–25, 35–36.
