In 95 A.D. the apostle John found himself exiled to an island due to his belief in Jesus Christ and preaching of the word of God (Revelation 1:9). His banishment was initiated Roman Emperor Domitian, who had begun Rome's second official persecution of Christians in 81 A.D.

While on Patmos John is given a prophetic vision directly by God. He is told to perform two simple tasks - to SEE (meaning to pay attention to what God would show him) and to WRITE (to record what he saw).

11 It (a loud voice that sounded like a trumpet) said, 'WRITE DOWN what you see, (Revelation 1:11)

19 WRITE, then, the things you see, both the things that are now and the things that will happen afterward. (1:17, 19)

13 Then I heard a voice from heaven saying, 'WRITE . . . ' (14:13)

9. And he said to me, "WRITE: Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb." (19:9)

1 Then I SAW a new heaven and a new earth . . . 2 I also SAW the Holy City . . . 5 Then the One seated on the throne said, 'Look! I am making everything new.' He also said, 'WRITE, because these words are faithful and true.' (21:1-2, 5)

The seven churches found in Revelation were literal first century Christian fellowships that existed along a Roman mail route. Each city where a particular church resided had its own unique characteristics, some of which offered challenges and temptations to those who were believers. The churches also represent the temptations, trials and troubles, in one form or another, that would exist in the church from the first century to today.
