“‘I know your works, your love and faith and service and patient endurance, and that your latter works exceed the first. But I have this against you, that you tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess and is teaching and seducing my servants to practice sexual immorality and to eat food sacrificed to idols.

What happens to a person or a church which continues to compromise? What happens to a person or a church when they continue to expose themselves to evil, danger and non-truth? In a word they become corrupt.

 

What happens to a person or a church which continues to compromise? What happens to a person or a church when they continue to expose themselves to evil, danger and non-truth? In a word they become corrupt.

Corruption is being consistently ungodly and unrighteous. It is the inevitable result of compromise. When an individual or a  church opens itself to spiritual or moral danger and fails to recognize and repent of it then such compromise will dominate them. They will become corrupt. This corrupting influence may occur by a handful of people or just one.

How does the church find itself in danger of compromise? The Compromising Church Denys faith in Jesus Christ Alone as Lord. Vs. 14-15.  But I have a few things against you: you have some there who hold the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, so that they might eat food sacrificed to idols and practice sexual immorality. So also you have some who hold the teaching of the Nicolaitans.

The compromising church holds to of Balaam. This means that the church compromises itself by idolatry.

What is compromise? 
 
To compromise is to make a deal between different parties where each party gives up part of their demands. You give up something, and I’ll give up something I order to reach a common goal. We both might not get all that we want or requested, but we both achieved and reached a common goal that will benefit both parties involved.

Revelation 2:8-11. “And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write: ‘the words of the first and the last, who died and came to life. “‘I know your tribulation and your poverty but you are rich) and the slander of those who say that they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. 10 Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and for ten days you will have tribulation. Be faithful unto death, and I will give you the crown of life. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. The one who conquers will not be hurt by the second death.’
