Revelation 2:8-29 - To the churches of Smyrna, Pergamos, and the church of Thyatira,. They are mingling evil with good, they tolerate wrong doing in the church, like false doctrines, adultery, fornication and worldly idols. They are not willing to separate the evil from the good in the church.

"To him that overcometh, I will write upon him the name New Jerusalem, and I will write upon him my new name." Rev 3:12.
