Instruction to the churches (cont)

 

Vs 1-6: Don’t fall asleep on the job.

And write to the angel of the Sardis church: The One who has the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars, says this:

  1. I know your works, that you have a reputation (name) that you are alive, but really you are dead.
  2. Wake up, and strengthen the things which were about to die for I judge that your deeds are not complete in the sight of My God.
  3. Remember therefore what you have embraced in the past, and keep it, and repent.
  4. If you will not wake up, I will come like a thief; at a time that you do not know.
  5. But there are a few people in Sardis who have not dirtied their garments and they will walk with Me in holiness (white), for they are worthy.
  6. He who overcomes I will bless. 

Listen to what the Spirit says to the churches.

 

Vs 7-13: Hold fast to His Word.

And write to the angel of the Philadelphia church:  The One who is holy,  true, has the key of David, opens and no one will shut, and shuts and no one opens, says this:

  1. I know your works
  2. I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because
    • you have a little strength
    • you have remained faithful to My word
    • you have not rejected My name.
  3. I will cause those of the synagogue of Satan to bow down at your feet and to know that I have loved you.
  4. Because you have kept the word of My Perseverance, I will keep you from the time of testing that is coming upon the whole world.
  5. I am coming quickly
  6. hold fast what you have in order that no one takes your crown.
  7. He who overcomes I will strengthen him and bless him.

Listen to what the Spirit says to the churches.

 

Vs 14-22:  Focus on the spiritual and not the material.

And write to the angel of the Laodicea church:  The One Who declares what is true, (Amen), the faithful and true Witness, the Beginning of the God's creation, says this:

  1. I know from your works that you are lukewarm and thus I will spit you out of my mouth.
  2. I want you either hot or cold.
  3. But you say: I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing but in reality you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked.
  4. I advise you to buy from Me pure Gold that is refined by fire so you will be rich.  (good works that will last to eternity: 1 Cor. 3:12)
  5. And put on white garments (holiness) to hide your nakedness and use eye medicine to anoint your eyes (wisdom) so you can see
  6. Those whom I love, I correct and discipline
  7. Behold I am calling you to repent.  If you do, I will fellowship with you.
  8. He who overcomes I will bless.

Listen to what the Spirit says to the churches.
