We read of Smyrna in Rev. 2:7-11. This is the Church persecuted, poverty-stricken, a lustrous city holding many enemies to our brethren, yet Jesus KNOWS them, and comforts and exhorts them to overcome. Our Jesus blesses them with His character (He who conquered death!) and His hope for their future, an eternal hope hat He has prepared for them, for us. Shall we too overcome, to persevere through tribulation?
