Write To Sardis: You Are Alive In Name Only. Remember What You Received. Repent

“And to the angel of the church in Sardis, write— These things says the One having the seven Spirits[a] of God and the seven stars. I know your works: that you have a name[b] that you are alive[c], and you are dead. Be[d] keeping-watch, and establish[e] the remaining things which were-about-to die, for I have not found your works fulfilled[f] in the sight of My God. Therefore be remembering how you have received and you heard, and be keeping it, and repent. Therefore if you do not keep-watch, I will come like a thief. And you will never know at what hour I will come upon you.
