Message to Philadelphia

7 "And to the angel of the church in 1Philadelphia write: 2He who is holy, 3who is true, who has 4the key of David, who opens and no one will shut, and who shuts and no one opens, says this:
8 '5I know your deeds. Behold, I have put before you 6an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power, and have kept My word, and 7have not denied My name.
9 'Behold, I will cause those of 8the synagogue of Satan, who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie -I will make them 9come and bow down at your feet, and make them know that 10I have loved you.
10 'Because you have 11kept the word of 12My perseverance, 13I also will keep you from the hour of 14testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole 15world, to test 16those who dwell on the earth.
11 '17I am coming quickly; 18hold fast what you have, so that no one will take your 19crown.
12 '20He who overcomes, I will make him a 21pillar in the temple of My God, and he will not go out from it anymore; and I will write on him the 22name of My God, and 23the name of the city of My God, 24the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God, and My 25new name.
13 '26He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.'

Message to Laodicea

14 "To the angel of the church in 27Laodicea write: 28The Amen, 29the faithful and true Witness, 30the Beginning of the creation of God, says this:
15 '31I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; 32I wish that you were cold or hot.
16 'So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth.
17 'Because you say, "33I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing," and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked,
18 I advise you to 34buy from Me 35gold refined by fire so that you may become rich, and 36white garments so that you may clothe yourself, and that 37the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see.
20 'Behold, I stand 40at the door and 41knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, 42I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me.
21 '43He who overcomes, I will grant to him 44to sit down with Me on My throne, as 45I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.
22 '46He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.' "
