First, consider Paul’s own words in his letter to the Ephesians…

Paul, an apostle of Yahshua by the will of God, To the saints who are in Ephesus
– Ephesians 1:1

Got that down?
Great….. now, as you may know, Ephesus was one of the seven churches located in Asia, according to the book of Revelations… ( Revelation 1:10,11)

Now, this is what was said to the church of Ephesus….
“I know your works, your labor, and your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars.” – Revlations 2:2 

Got that down ….?
Now, heres what Paul wrote about his reception in Asia…
This you know, that all those in Asia have turned away from me.
-2Timothy 1:15

In case you missed it, Paul writes that he was rejected by everybody in Asia….where Ephesus was located!

Whats the big deal about all this, you ask? Heres the whole thing in a nutshell-
a) Paul tried to witness to Ephesus, located in biblical Asia.
b) All of Asia rejected Paul.
c) Ephesus is getting praised in revelations, for having “tested those who say they are apostles and have found them liars.”

So where does it leave Paul???

Think!
Paul writes that he was rejected by all of Asia, where Ephesus was located!
Ephesus is being praised for testing ‘those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars’.
