Revelation 3:8-14 King James Version (KJV)
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.
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.
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.
11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
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.
13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
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;
What the seven are saying:
In these seven verses, the LORD Almighty commanded the angel of the church in Philadelphia to write. The angel reported that the church in Philadelphia’s work has been acknowledged! Yet the LORD set before them an open door that no man can shut.
Think of the seven virgins parable; the door is open now and no one can shut it. There will be a time when it will be shut and no man can open it. The Philadelphians have some strength and virtue, they have kept the Messiah’s word and have not denied His name (authority).
For their faithfulness, the LORD will make the synagogue of Satan come and worship before the feet of the church of Philadelphia. The synagogue of Satan will learn and know the LORD of Hosts loves the Church of Philadelphia.
the Synagogue of Satan say they are Jews…
The Sovereign LORD said the synagogue of Satan say they are Jews but are not; they are lying about their identity. Consider, there are people who say they are Jews but are lying concerning their identity!!
Continuing, the church of Philadelphia will be kept from the hour of temptation because they have kept the word of the Messiah’s patience. The hour of temptation will come upon the entire world and will test the faith of everyone who dwells on the earth.
The hour of temptation is thought and perceived to be the great tribulation (we will see this later in the seven verses in Revelation series)! The Messiah proclaimed to be on His way rather quickly, therefore the church is instructed to hold onto what they have; allow no man to take their crown.
This message is for our reading also! To those who overcome, they will be made a pillar in the temple of the Messiah Jesus’ Father; once this is granted, the overcomer cannot go out any longer. Keep in mind, the temple is the Almighty Father and Lamb themselves (Revelation 21:22).
New Jerusalem Granted to those who Overcome
The LORD will write on the overcomers, the name of His Power (the Father) and the name of the city of His Power, which is a new Jerusalem. This city will come down from the Heavenly Kingdom of Power (see Revelation 21).
Lastly, the Anointed LORD will write a new name upon those who overcome. Those who have an ear to hear, let them hear what the Spirit (Angel) says to the churches. The last verse speaks to the Laodiceans, as the angel of that church is commanded to write.
This Angel will write what the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of Power says. Seven verses!
