"To the angel of the Messianic Community in Laodicea, write: 'Here is the message from the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the Ruler of God's creation:
"I know what you are doing: you are neither cold nor hot. How I wish you were either one or the other!
So, because you are lukewarm, neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of my mouth!
For you keep saying, 'I am rich, I have gotten rich, I don't need a thing!' You don't know that you are the one who is wretched, pitiable, poor, blind and naked!
My advice to you is to buy from me gold refined by fire, so that you may be rich; and white clothing, so that you may be dressed and not have to be ashamed of your nakedness; and eyesalve to rub on your eyes, so that you may see.
As for me, I rebuke and discipline everyone I love; so exert yourselves, and turn from your sins!
Here, I'm standing at the door, knocking. If someone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he will eat with me.
I will let him who wins the victory sit with me on my throne, just as I myself also won the victory and sat down with my Father on his throne.
Those who have ears, let them hear what the Spirit is saying to the Messianic communities."'"
