“I know that you live in the city where Satan has his throne, yet you have remained loyal to Me. You refused to deny Me even when Antipas, My faithful witness, was martyred among you there in Satan’s city. Revelation 2:13 NLT
Through all the hardships they faced, the Christians in Pergamum remained faithful even unto death. Jesus mentions Antipas. Tradition says he was the bishop of Pergamum at the time of his death. He is mentioned by early church writers but nothing on his death has survived.
I have often wondered if I would remain faithful if I faced death because of my faith. I pray that I will remain faithful regardless of my circumstances.
If we endure hardship, we will reign with Him. If we deny Him, He will deny us. 2 Timothy 2:12 NLT
