“To the angel of the church in Pergamum write: “This is the message from the one who has the sharp two-edged sword.  I know where you live, there where Satan has his throne.  You are true to me, and you did not abandon your faith in me even during the time when Antipas, my faithful witness, was killed there where Satan lives” (Revelation 2: 12, 13 GNT).

The Great Altar of Pergamon (the Throne of Satan in Revelation) was dedicated to Zeus in the ancient Greek city of Pergamum.  The Nazis moved it to Berlin.  It is in Berlin’s Pergamon Museum today.  The altar inspired Albert Speer, Hitler’s architect, to build a podium for Hitler.  From this replica of the Great Altar of Pergamum, Hitler delivered his speeches in Nuremberg.  The podium is featured in the Nazi propaganda film “Triumph of the Will.” To learn more about this infamous altar and its religious/historical significance, see the three-part video presented by CBN.
