  1. Church of Sardis to Loadiceans
    By Herbert H. Ogletree
    Church of Sardis.

    Revelation 3:1- And unto the angel of the Church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.
    3:2- Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.
    3:3- Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt notnow what hour I will come upon thee.
    3:4- Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.
    3 5- He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
    3:6- He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

    Church of Philadelph[a

    3:7- And to the angel of the Church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;
    3:8- I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
    3:9- Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
    3:10- Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
    3:11- Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
    3:12- Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
    3:13- He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

    Church of Laodiceans
    3:14- And unto the angel of the Church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
    3:15- I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
    3:16- So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
    3:17- Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
    3:18 -I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
    3:19- As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
    3:20-Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
    3:21- To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I overcome, and am sit down with my Father in his throne.
    3:22- He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
    Coming to the end of our Churches in the Book of Revelations, it would have been nice if Christ could have found men backed then to have spoken up with all there very own greatness for all of those churches back then in his very first churches back then in the days of old, being more like our man of today that like to speak and also barge about their very own churches of today. If everyone that is in our churches of today are saved, then why is our Lord Jesus Christ are still having to stand at our many Churches door and is also still knocking even harder today than ever before.
    With the hope of trying to get into many of our last Churches, only with the hope that they might now let our Christ come in. The same as we all so founded Christ having to knock in the same Church that is now in the 22 verse above, in the Church of Loadiceans. Living here in our last days Christ is now also having to knock on more and more doors and even harder and harder than ever before in our very own days and times of our own departures.
