Revelation 2:8-11 Reading the Passage

Be Faithful in the Face of Trial – Revelation 2:8-11

2 (8) To the angel of the church in Smyrna write: This is what the one who is the First and the Last, the one who died and came back to life, says: (9) I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich), and the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews, but they are not; rather, they are a synagogue of Satan. (10) Do not fear the things you are about to suffer. Listen; the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, in order that you may be tested, and you will suffer tribulation for ten days. Be faithful unto death, and I will give you the crown of life. (11) He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes shall not be harmed by the second death.
