3"To the angel of the church in Sardis write: These are the words of him who holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars. I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead.G2532G32G1577G1722G4554G1125G3592G3004G2192G2033G4151G2316G2532G2033G792G1492G4675G2041G3754G2192G3686G3754G2198G2532G1488G34982Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have found your deeds unfinished in the sight of my God.G1096G1127G2532G4741G3062G3739G3195G599G1063G2147G3756G2147G4675G2041G4137G1799G23163Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; hold it fast, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you.G3421G3767G4459G2983G2532G191G2532G5083G2532G3340G3362G3767G1127G3362G1127G2240G1909G4571G5613G2812G2532G1097G3364G1097G4169G5610G2240G1909G45714Yet you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their clothes. They will walk with me, dressed in white, for they are worthy.G2192G3641G3686G2532G1722G4554G3739G3435G3756G3435G846G2440G2532G4043G3326G1700G1722G3022G3754G1526G5145Those who are victorious will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out their names from the book of life, but will acknowledge their names before my Father and his angels.G3528G3778G4016G1722G3022G2440G2532G1813G3364G1813G846G3686G1537G976G2222G2532G1843G846G3686G1799G3450G3962G2532G1799G846G326Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.G2192G3775G191G5101G4151G3004G1577
To the Church in Philadelphia
7"To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: These are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David.

See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.G1492G4675G2041G2400G1325G1799G4675G455G2374G2532G3762G1410G2808G846G3754G2192G3398G1411G2532G5083G3450G3056G2532G720G3756G720G3450G36869I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars—I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you.G2400G1325G1537G4864G4567G3588G3004G1438G1511G2453G2532G1526G3756G235G5574G2400G4160G846G2443G2240G2532G4352G1799G4675G4228G2532G1097G3754G1473G25G457110Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test those who live on the earth.G3754G5083G3056G3450G5281G2504G5083G4571G1537G5610G3986G3588G3195G2064G1909G3650G3625G3985G2730G1909G109311I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown.G2400G2064G5035G2902G3739G2192G2443G3367G2983G4675G473512Those who are victorious I will make pillars in the temple of my God. Never again will they leave it. I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on them my new name.G846G3528G4160G4769G1722G3485G3450G2316G2532G1831G3364G2089G1854G2532G1125G1909G846G3686G3450G2316G2532G3686G4172G3450G2316G3588G2537G2419G3588G2597G2597G1537G3772G575G3450G2316G2532G3450G2537G368613Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.G2192G3775G191G5101G4151G3004G1577
