You will notice that in Pergamum Jesus is in type the One who has the two edged sword. One characteristic of Christ from chapter one is used for each of the seven churches.  This one is the two edged sharp sword.
Notice where they are dwelling. It is where Satan’s throne is.  To me that means they were earth bound. I could say more but I will leave that for another time except according to 2 Corinthians 4:4. Satan is the god of this world.
