Revelation 3 – He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches
Written on Shabbat,
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches
The Church of Sardis
And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. See also Zechariah 4:2.
YAHUSHUA knows all things, and in the case of this Church, it appears to the world to be alive, yet to the One who searches the reins and heart (Revelation 1:23) – they are dead. A dead church is a church without the RUACH ha KODESH (Holy Spirit), for it is RUACH (Spirit) of YAHUVEH that gives life (Genesis 2:7).
Be “watchful” says YAHUSHUA – “strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.” Anyone that worships YAH must do so in Spirit and Truth (John 4:24), likewise anyone who serves Him must do so in Spirit and Truth, for YAH is a Spirit and we cannot please Him when led by the flesh.
This Church dies because it’s carnal rather than led by IMMA YAH (Holy Spirit), and as such its works are not perfect before YAHUVEH GOD. “Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent.”
But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. Galations 1:8-9
Likewise YAHUSHUA reminds His Church of the Gospel first preached unto them, to hold fast to it and repent from traditions and rituals that they have added to it.
The Church of Sardis has a name of being alive, in the eyes of man they seem to be doing well. Yet their service is of the flesh and not pleasing to Father YAHUVEH. The Church has allowed the lusts of the world and love of money to creep in and quench the Spirit.
“If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.”
The church of YAHUSHUA must be without spot or wrinkle. For those who are not watching and preparing for Him as the five wise virgins (Matthew 25), He shall come as a thief, and when He comes they shall be caught unaware.
And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. Luke 21:34
We either place YAH first in our lives to hear and obey every Word He speaks; or we allow ourselves to be blinded by placing our focus on the things of this world, material wealth, sin, fornication – so that we can no longer behold YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH. If that be the case He will come back as a thief in the night. See Matthew 6:24.
“Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.”
These members of the Church of Sardis began with garments of righteousness when first saved by YAHUSHUA Messiah, yet many have defiled garments through sin and by compromising the truth. Those who are worthy are those without spot or wrinkle, they have kept themselves pure – even amongst them that compromised. They are the Bride of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH.
6 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
The Church of Philadelphia
7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;
YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH is Holy, and His body must be Holy. Leviticus 11:44-45. For this cause He spews the unprofitable members, the lukewarm out of His mouth. YAHUSHUA is the truth, the faithful Word of YAH made manifest. Revelation 19:11.
YAHUSHUA is the ultimate Authority, for Father YAHUVEH has given Him all authority. Matthew 28:18. He speaks and no one can say otherwise!
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.
YAH sees all, the work we have done for Him in secret, He sees and will reward us openly. Matthew 6:5-6. The Church of Philadelphia keeps the commandments of YAH, they obey and refuse to comprise what they know to be True. They have not denied the name of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH, even when under the heaviest of persecution. For this reason they are weak, for they have endured and continue to endure for the YAHUSHUA’s name sake.
vs 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.
There are those who call themselves Jews/Christians/Children of God, yet they are of the synagogue of satan, satanist disguised as sheep. They are wolves in sheep clothing. YAH promises that He will make them come and worship at His true children’s feet, making these wolves admit that it is the Church Philadelphia that YAH loves.
At that time you’ll cry and you’ll repent for the spirit of destruction that you sent. Oh, you’ll repent…, but it’s going to cost you your life. And you’re going to have to look at Elisabeth in the eyes in Heaven, you’ll have to admit how much I love her. And you will thank her for the price that she paid. And all those that preach this Truth. All those that you scorned and mocked, you’ll look them in the eye and you’ll apologize. Prophecy 102 – YAHUSHUA Says, “It’s Only a Matter of Time.”
YAH loves those who hold to Him, and Him only. He is coming to take a Wife, and only the faithful, those who place Him above all things will be counted worthy to be called the Bride of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH. Revelation 19:7.
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.
“the word my patience,” the Gospel of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH requires endurance, perseverance, and patience on behalf of the saints; for those who are faithful and true to YAH’s Word will be persecuted, mistreated, and spoken evil of. Patience is required to follow YAHUSHUA.
Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. Revelation 14:12.
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. Because the Church of Philadelphia is faithful and true to YAHUSHUA, YAHUSHUA will keep them from the Great Tribulation that is coming upon the Earth.
Here is the mystery, the Church of Philadelphia represents the Bride of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH. It is commonly taught that all believers are the Bride, this is not so. The Bride of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH are those who are ever ready and waiting for HIS return.
The Parable spoken in Matthew 25:1 “Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.”
The Church of Philadelphia is the only Church that has been promised this. They will be Raptured from this earth before the great tribulation. Did YAHUSHUA not say:
34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. 35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. Luke 21:34-36.
We’ve often heard that before the tribulation the entire body of believers will be Raptured. YAHUSHUA speaks that it will be a remnant of His Church. Not all of the 10 virgins in Matthew 25 became the Bride, and again not all the churches hold the promise to escape the tribulation. The Bride of YAHUSHUA is faithful! The Bride of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH will put nothing before YAHUSHUA for He is the love of their life. The Bride of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH loves HIM with all their mind, power, body, spirit and soul.
To MY Babies, Bride, Chosen Ones and Elect, “I AM” says, “Blessed I call you and will prove I reward those that diligently seek after ME and strive to obey MY laws. Blessed are those who strive to be Holy as “I AM” is Holy. Blessed are those who store up their treasures in Heaven and not on Earth. Who run towards the mark of the high calling. To become MY Bride is the highest calling of all.” This is the greatest treasure of all. There are guests and there are Brides. Strive to become MY Bride. I do not call all, MY Bride, only those set apart for MY glory will be called MY Bride. Prophecy 35 – Betrayed With A Kiss.
The Bride of YAHUSHUA loves “…the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.” Luke 10:27.
The Bride of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH obeys every word that YAH speaks, for YAHUSHUA has said: “If ye love me, keep my commandments.” John 14:15. The Bride proves their love for their soon coming Bridegroom by keeping the word of HIS patience and by not denying HIS Name.
For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Luke 21:35.
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. Revalation 3:10.
The great tribulation is a test, a refiner of metals. The lukewarm that go through the tribulation will come out as gold, or they will be reprobate. Jeremiah 6:30. YAHUSHUA says that the hour of temptation will come on all them that dewell on the face of the whole earth, and it will try them. In other words it will test them. The tribulation is not for the Bride, for the Bride has already proven herself faithful, proven herself willing to suffer for YAHUSHUA’s name sake. The Bride is Holy and lives apart from the world, they dwell in Holiness forsaking the sin and filth of this world. They have already been tested and are as precious jewels before YAH.
Do what I have called you to do, and put your hand to the plow and do not look back. But look forward. Keep running the good race to the mark of the high calling. Be not deceived, the Tribulation has not begun yet. Pray you will be spared this, for the Tribulation is not for MY Bride. Why would I beat up and abuse MY Loving Bride? Why would I kill MY Spouse, MY Bride that awaits her groom? MY Bride with all her jewels on and finely adorned and who worships only ME, lives for only ME. I would not.
I tell you anyone that says I am going to allow you to go through the Great Tribulation does not speak MY words. They speak words of fear and deceit. I am coming for MY Bride to tenderly carry her away and lovingly protect her. She is not worthy of MY wrath, for she loves and obeys ME. She trusts ME. She is relying on ME to save her. Do not fear what so called experts say, and they say you will be here for the wrath of Almighty GOD YAHUVEH. For this is not of ME. I love MY Bride, MY children, above all else. I gave MY life so you would be spared. Prophecy 8 – Will you Prove Your Love for Me
The tribulation is for the lukewarm. For YAHUSHUA has said “I would thou wert cold or hot,” (Revelation 3:15) after the tribulation the lukewarm will no longer be in between two states, they will either stand for YAH, or they will stand with the devil by accepting the mark of the beast.
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.
The Church of Laodiceans
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;
Faithful & True = Amen “These things saith” YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH, the One who makes the Father known and reveals His will to all creation (Revelation 5:1-14), for “No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.” John 1:18; and we know that all that YAHUSHUA speaks is True and Faithful, for again, His name is “Faithful and True” (Revelation 19:11).
He is “the beginning of the creation of God,” not that He was created, but all that is created is Created through Him (John 1:1-3).
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
We are the Body of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH, we must be Holy as He is Holy. For “21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.” 1 Corinthians 10:21.
If one be a member of YAHUSHUA’s body, yet abides in sin then the very same will be spued out, for we must be Holy as YAH is holy.
“…Let every one who nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.”2 Timothy 2:19.
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
The Church of the Laodiceans is carnal. Their eyes are on the things of the flesh and blind from the things of the spirit. They think themselves well off, yet spiritually they are “wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked”
Spiritually they are wretched and miserable for they know not their Messiah, YAHUSHUA. They are poor in faith, and in treasures in Heaven. They are blind, for although they confess to know Him, by their fruits they prove that they do not.
Oh, you lukewarm puke Christians, the ones YAHUSHUA will spew forth as vomit out of HIS mouth, this is why your love has waxed cold. You put so many other loves before US, your worldly lust, fleshly desires, above US, yes, even those that call themselves MINE and dare to call yourself Christians! And you wonder why you no longer can discern the Truth from the lies, but you stone the Holy and this Ministry speaking forth just as surely as Stephen was stoned. (Acts 7:59) I speak to the puke lukewarm Christians, you do not have to remain puke and vomit! It is your choice! Prophecy 118 – Beware, The Great Tribulation Is A Breath Away!
They are naked for they stand on their own deeds do not wear the Robes of Righteousness that YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH clothes His people with.
Dare not wear your robes of righteousness for I know who has MY SEAL placed on them. Those who truly are redeemed th[r]ough the work of MY Son YAHUSHUA at Calvary. Come to ME in YAHUSHUA’s Name, through HIS shed Blood; Stand in HIS Robes of Righteousness. Prophecy 24 Part 1 – Beware, The Ark Door And Book Of The Gentiles Is Closing!
They, the church of Laodiceans confess YAHUSHUA as Lord, yet do not obey or follow Him.
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
Gold tried in the fire. That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: 1 Peter 1:7.
True riches is our faith in YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH. YAH refines and builds it through fire (affliction).
White raiment, that thou mayest be clothed
It is MY robe of righteousness. I wore a crown of thorns. You shall wear like a tiara a crown of MY Glory that is placed upon your head. As Esther prepared herself for the king, you are preparing yourself for THE KING OF KINGS, THE LORD OF LORDS, YOUR LORD GOD ALMIGHTY YAHSUHUA IS MY Name AND I AM YOUR SOON COMING BRIDEGROOM! Prophecy 41 – Will My Real Bride Please Stand Up!
7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. 8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. Revelation 19:7-8.
The righteousness of the saints is the righteousness of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH (fine linen, clean and white) clothing them, for Word of YAH says that our own “righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.” Isaiah 64:6. Believers are clothed with True righteousness, the Righteousness of the Only begotten Son of GOD, YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH is His Name.
We are to “anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see” Call out to YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH even as Blind Bartimaeus did that you may see. “39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.”John 9:39.
46 And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging.
47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.
48 And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou son of David, have mercy on me.
49 And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee.
50 And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.
51 And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight.
52 And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.
Be not hardened at the Words of the LORD, for:
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
