1 AND to the angel who is in Sardis write: These saith he who hath the seven Spirits of Aloha, and the seven stars: I know thy works, that a name thou hast that thou livest, and thou art dead.
2 Awake, and keep those things which remain, which are about to die; for I have not found thy works complete before my God.
3 Remember then how thou hast received, and hearken, and keep, and repent. And if then thou wilt not awake, I will come against thee as the thief, and thou shalt not know in what hour I come against thee.
4 But thou hast a few names in Sardis who have not defiled their vestments; and they shall walk with me in white, because they are worthy.
5 He who overcometh shall be clothed in white vestments, and I will not blot their name from the book of life; and I will confess their name before my Father, and before his angels.
6 He who hath ears, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches.
7 And to the angel of the church which is in Philadelphia write: These saith the Holy, the True, who hath the key of David; who openeth and no man shutteth, and who shutteth and no man openeth.
8 I know thy works; and, behold, I have given before thee an open door, which no man can shut; because thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
9 Behold, I will give of the synagogue of Satana, who say that they are Jihudoyee, and are not, but lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and they shall know that I have loved thee.
10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which is to come upon all the habitable world, to try them who dwell upon the earth.
11 I come quickly. Hold that which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
12 Him who overcometh I will make a column in the temple of my God, and he shall go out no more; and I will write upon him the name of my God, and of Urishlem the new, which descendeth from heaven from my God, and my new name.
13 He who hath ears, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches.
14 And to the angel of the church which is in Ladikia write: These saith the Amen, the Witness, the faithful, the true, the Head of the creation of Aloha.
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither hot nor cold. Would that thou wast cold or hot!
16 So, because thou art lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will vomit thee from my mouth.
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and have become opulent, and of nothing have need; and knowest not that thou art infirm, and miserable, and needy, and blind, and naked;
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold, proved by fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and the shame of thy nakedness be not seen; and lave with collyrium thine eyes, that thou mayest see.
19 All those whom I love, I reprove and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice, and will open the door, I will enter unto him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
21 And to him who overcometh I will give to sit with me upon my throne, as also I have overcome, and have sat with my Father in his throne.
22 He who hath ears, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches.
