 In the first three churches the warning word ("He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches") comes before the promise; but all the four concluding churches have the promise before the call to hear. These at least will be found to be the representatives of states of the church which go down to the end. (Lectures on Revelation 2:18-3:16: Thyatira by W. Kelly)
 In the first three churches, then, the call to hear is addressed formally to the whole assembly concerned; but in the last four the change of situation appears to mark greater reserve. It seems to be intimated by this, that none is expected to hear but he who overcomes. (Lectures on Revelation 2:18-3:16: Thyatira by W. Kelly)
 Something analogous to this appears elsewhere. Thus in the seven parables of Matt. 13 the last three were unquestionably marked off from their predecessors, and were addressed to a higher degree of spirituality. The first four were uttered outside to the multitude, the last three to the disciples only within the house. Wherever we find in the Bible a series of parables, prophetic visions, or the like, grouped together as these are, there is commonly, not to say invariably, some such line drawn between those which commence with a general bearing and those which become more special and narrow as we approach the goal. (Lectures on Revelation 2:18-3:16: Thyatira by W. Kelly)
 These are the two great aspects of blessing which characterise Jesus as the Son of God. He imparts not only life but liberty too. (Lectures on Revelation 2:18-3:16: Thyatira by W. Kelly)
 Here then we have the assertion of His personal glory [Son of God] and the attributes of His all-searching [eyes as flame of fire] and unbending judgment [feet like fine brass] of men (Lectures on Revelation 2:18-3:16: Thyatira by W. Kelly)
