Message to Sardis

1 "To the angel of the church in 1Sardis write: He who has 2the seven Spirits of God and 3the seven stars, says this: '4I know your deeds, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are 5dead.
2 'Wake up, and strengthen the things that remain, which were about to die; for I have not found your deeds completed in the sight of My God.
3 'So 6remember what you have received and heard; and keep it, and 7repent. Therefore if you do not wake up, 8I will come 9like a thief, and you will not know at 10what hour I will come to you.
4 'But you have a few 11people in 12Sardis who have not 13soiled their garments; and they will walk with Me 14in white, for they are worthy.
5 '15He who overcomes will thus be clothed in 16white garments; and I will not 17erase his name from the book of life, and 18I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.
6 '19He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.'
