    Chapter two and three need not be made complicated. They simple inform ALL of the rewards and
    Punishment that are coming and not to think that our works and acts are hidden. God would that ALL be saved and so has ever forwarned.

    The letters were written by John, as given by Our Lord Jesus, to Churches that existed then but I also believe that the Churches are Church ages that we will all go through. The Seven Church styles as it were. This is from Pentecost Acts 2 to the "Rapture" foretold in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18.
