The same "synagogue of satan" is mentioned in Rev. 2:9, but also in that same Letter to the Church at Pergamum, it states that satan's throne is located there. And that Jesus's Christ's faithful witness, Antipas, was killed there, "where satan dwells". From what I can discern, Pergamum is modern day Bergama in western Turkey. Perhaps someone can enlighten us about the Church 'Age' of Pergamum? As I understand it, each letter was not only to a physical place/area, but also a time period of the Church as a whole and/or a Christian's personal attitude/character/lifestyle, correct? So how would satan's throne being located near Pergamum play into there being a synagogue of satan, if at all? I would think if there are those who worship satan, they would be near his throne, or at least make 'pilgrimages' to it. Maybe the answers to these questions might lead us to know who are the ones lying about being Jews.
"This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you." John 15:12
Notes I have: the years 313-600, started with Constantine. Satan's throne was what they called the Altar of Zeus. It is now in a museum in Berlin. Antipas was killed on it (roasted inside a gutted bull).
Is 26:3 You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.

EnochWalked: "Einav compared the numbers to those who fell in Israel’s wars, noting that 660 people died in first Lebanon war ... and about 2,700 people in the Yom Kippur War. The death toll from the coronavirus pandemic hit 1,260 by Monday afternoon." That number.

EnochWalked: "The sheikh added in a statement to Palestinian media that Israel is attempting to slowly change the religious status quo on the important holy site until “the settlers” achieve their goal of building the [Third] Temple in the area."

EnochWalked: "Israel's agreement with Bahrain, which Netanyahu also signed last Tuesday, is a declaration of intent and not a peace treaty, due to timing issues. As such, it does not need to be brought before the government until a full treaty is agreed upon."

EnochWalked: Interesting links, bernie, thank you. I'm wondering if all these Arab peace deals will lead the Palestinians to rely more on Turkey and Iran. Not an obvious alliance, but I think both would be interested in claiming the Temple Mount.

Servant: The peace talks must be pushing Iran, Turkey, Russia and maybe China into a corner. Not sure what will happen. Anyway, a word of encouragement, the LORD presently fighting the war in other realm to take YOU and ALL of us home. Check Gary's post.

EnochWalked: m-en.yna.co.kr/view/AEN20200922010200315 "Moon proposes declaring end to Korean War, requests U.N.'s support" "This year marks the 70th anniversary of the outbreak of the war". Interesting symbolism, and Moon Jae-in might beat Trump for the Nobel.
