Milepost 6: Philadelphia

Primary References: Revelation 3:7-13

The church of Philadelphia, like its city, has a missionary zeal. The name of its city suggests it is a church full of love and its actions demonstrate this is the case. Jesus has opened doors for them to go through in spreading the gospel and their results are far greater than their numbers.  Like the church of Smyrna, great opposition accompanies these opportunities and Satan and false religious Jews oppose the church of Philadelphia.  Unlike the church of Smyrna, this church overcomes their enemies not through their deaths but through their lives and God’s power in them.  Their victories are most apparent in the rewards Jesus promises them.  In addition to Smyrna’s crowns, Jesus promises them eternal security in God’s temple and that He will write God’s name, a new name, and New Jerusalem on them – all demonstrating eternal blessings and security.

Philadelphia represents the church period from approximately 1750 A.D. to 1900 A.D.  This was a time of great revivals and great missionary outreaches.  A few people ‘of little strength’ used God’s power to perform great and miraculous works.  It was a time where the church sought and taught the truth and people of great faith built great churches and great schools.  The following table summarizes the church of Philadelphia.
