WHAT TIME IT IS

REVELATION 3

 

Sardis

 

The greeting and description of Jesus

 

Rev. 3:1 And unto the angel [messenger or pastor] of the church in Sardis write;

[1] These things saith he that hath

[a.] the seven Spirits of God, and

[b.] the seven stars;

The commendation

 

I know

[1] thy works,

[2] that thou hast a name that thou livest, and

[3] [thou] art dead.

The admonition

 

3:2 [1] Be watchful, and

[2] strengthen the things which remain,

[a.] that are ready to die:

[3] for I have not found thy works perfect before God.

The remedy and consequences for ignoring

 

3:3 [1] Remember therefore how thou hast

[a.] received and

[b.] heard, and

[2] hold fast, and

[3] repent.

[4 If therefore thou shalt not watch,

[a] I will come on thee

[11.] as a thief, and

[b] thou shalt not know what hour

[11.] I will come upon thee.

The reward for obedience

 

3:4 Thou hast

[1] a few names even in Sardis

[a.] which have not defiled their garments; and

[2] they shall walk with me in white [in righteousness]:

[b.] for they are worthy.

 

3:5 He that overcometh, the same

[1] shall be clothed in white raiment; and

[2] I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but

[3] I will confess his name before my Father, and

[4] [I will confess his name] before his angels.

 

3:6 He that hath an ear, let him hear

[1] what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
