Laodicea wasn't commended for anything because they were spiritually poor.
|According to church tradition, who wrote the book of Revelation?||Revelation
John. The Greek title of Revelation is Apocalypse. John wrote the book of Revelation for the church in A.D. 95 during the reign of Domitian who banished him to the island of Patmos.

none. According to Wikipedia in its "Seven churches of Asia" article, none of these cities have significant Christian populations today, because they were emptied under the agreements associated with the Treaty of Lausanne (1923), which was instrumental in the international recognition of the Republic of Turkey.
A friend of mine worked in Turkey as an English teacher for many years. She has shown me postcards of archaeological excavations of the ruins of the seven cities dating from the time when John was writing.
|Perhaps the best known verse in these two chapters is Revelation 3:20, which reads,
'Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.'
To which of the seven churches is this written?||Seven Churches in Revelation Part 1
Laodicea. Today this verse is often used in evangelism, to encourage non-Christians to put their faith in Jesus and invite him into their lives. However, it is interesting to note that the verse was originally written to people who had already put their trust in him.
Philadelphia. Revelation 3:8. I see this as an encouragement to Christians to keep trusting God, even when things are tough, because he sees and understands our hearts.
Pergamum. Revelation 2:17. It is not certain what this means, but some people believe that God will give us a new name when we reach Heaven, perhaps a name that reflects what (or who) we have been on earth.
Philadelphia and Smyrna. See Revelation 2:8-11 and 3:7-13. It seems that little over 50 years after Jesus' crucifixion, some of the churches were already descending into error and heresy.
overcomes. See Revelation 2:7, 11, 17, 26 and 3:5, 12, 21. Chapter 2:26 does add the words 'and does my will to the end', but this is not one of the other options listed above.
the angel of the church. Many people believe that each person is allocated a personal (guardian) angel. From these passages, it seems that the churches had angels with special responsibility for them.
Ephesus. See the New Testament book Ephesians. There is a reference in Colossians 4:16 to a letter from Paul to the church at Laodicea, but as far as we know, no copy of the letter exists and it certainly doesn't appear in the New Testament.
Turkey. The answer to this is obviously not in the Bible, but can be easily found on several websites. For example, the Wikipedia article on the seven churches in Asia has a map.
|Revelation 22:2a says, "In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore ______ fruits..." What word completes this line?||Questions from Revelation
twelve.. "...each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations." Revelation 22:2b (NKJV).
And, the last word of Revelation, and thus of the whole Holy Bible is "Amen."
The Lord God Almighty and the Lamb.. "But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light." Revelation 21:22, 23 (NKJV) The city walls were jasper, and the city itself was of gold.
The bottomless pit.. Many people get confused on the issue of Hell. The bottomless pit is different from the lake of fire and brimstone. Satan will be cast into the lake of fire and brimstone later in the chapter.
