Would you like to move to Pergamum? According to Jesus, the throne of Satan was in Pergamum. Can you imagine incorporating that bit of information into a nifty real estate ad! Well, there was a church in Pergamum too. That meant confrontation, and at least one person from the church was martyred. Jesus commends the church for holding fast to Him in the face of violent opposition. Sometimes such in-your-face opposition is not effective. Hence, the devil has other schemes. He’s also a Liar. Liars seek to deceive. Jesus says deception is happening in Pergamum.
