Revelation 2:8-11 Message to Smyrna
8 "And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write:
The first and the last, who [fn5] was dead, and has come to life, says this:
9 'I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich), and the blasphemy by those who say 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 cast some of you into prison, so that you will be tested, and you will have tribulation for ten days. [fn6] Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life. 11 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes will not be hurt by the second death.'
Revelation 3:7-13 Message to Philadelphia
7 "And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write:
He who is holy, who is true, who has the key of David, who opens and no one will shut, and who shuts and no one opens, says this:
8 'I know your [fn4] deeds. Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power, and have kept My word, and have not denied My name. 9 Behold, I [fn5] will cause those of the synagogue of Satan, who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie—I will make them come and bow down [fn6] at your feet, and make them know that I have loved you. 10 Because you have kept the word of My [fn7] perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of [fn8] testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole [fn9] world, to [fn10] test those who dwell on the earth. 11 I am coming quickly; hold fast what you have, so that no one will take your crown. 12 He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he will not go out from it anymore; and I will write on him the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God, and My new name. 13 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.'
Excerpts from "Synagogue of Satan" (exhaustive study I took notes from):
"The first verse was written to the church at Smyrna and the second to the church at Philadelphia. These were the only two of the seven churches in Asia with which Jesus found no fault. The Synagogue of Satan must be important if Jesus only mentioned it in the letters to the churches without fault. He implied that those churches knew about the Synagogue of Satan and that they did not follow after it."
"Jesus said that He would make the Synagogue of Satan come and worship before our feet. The Synagogue of Satan is comprised of those who profess to be something they are not. They are also liars, that is, teachers of false doctrine. They lead many astray. See to it that you know who the Synagogue of Satan are, and do not follow them."
