By what title is the first state of the church distinguished?

Answer

"Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write." Rev. 2: 1.
NOTE - The meaning of Ephesus is desirable, and fitly describes the character and condition of
the church in its first state, when its members received the doctrine of Christ in its purity, and enjoyed the
benefits and blessings of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. This applies to the first century I or during the lifetime
of the apostles. See dates in the accompanying diagram, showing the beginning and close of the seven
periods.
