The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
"1 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.2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things
which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.3 Remember therefore how thou hast
received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. 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.4 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.5 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.6
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches"
3 verse 1 "I know thy works, that thou has a name that thou livest, and art dead" These are christian congregations
today that hold to the freewill of man doctrine. They have the Word of God; but they do not believe God's Salvation, they
do not believe that He has chosen His people from before the foundation of the world. They are just like the five foolish
virgins that have the lamp, they look like they have life in Christ, but in reality they are dead trusting in their doings.
Verse 2 "for I have not found thy works perfect before God" To trust in the Lord Jesus Christ alone is to have a
Verse 3 "Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast,
and repent" To these people is the call to repent, if you are trusting in what you are doing or have done, REPENT.
4 "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" There are some of God's chosen people in these congregations that hold the freewill of man
doctrine, they will not hold to false doctrines.
Revelation 7:9-14 "9 After this I beheld,
and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before
the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;10 And cried with a loud voice, saying,
Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.11 And all the angels stood round about the throne,
and the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,12 Saying, Amen: Blessing,
and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.13 And one
of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?14 And I said
unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their
robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb"
We are in a great tribulation:
Where is truth? Most congregations do not have the truth of God's Salvation, but a "DO IT YOURSEFL SALVATION"
you decide, you accept; but for me and all His chosen people "IT IS FINISHED" Christ has done it all.
Luke 5:27-32 "27 And after these things he went forth, and saw a publican, named Levi, sitting at the receipt
of custom: and he said unto him, Follow me.28 And he left all, rose up, and followed him.29 And Levi made him a great feast
in his own house: and there was a great company of publicans and of others that sat down with them.30 But their scribes and
Pharisees murmured against his disciples, saying, Why do ye eat and drink with publicans and sinners?31 And Jesus answering
said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick..32 I came not to call the righteous, but
sinners to repentance."
I pray you see this: Levi did not make a decision nor accepted the
Lord Jesus Christ, he just left all (nothing we bring) rose up (we proclaim God's Salvation) and followed Him (we trust His
Salvation). Repentance is the gift of God to His chosen people, the whole work of Salvation is in God's hand.
Acts 5:30-31 "30 The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree.31 Him hath God exalted
with his right hand, a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins"
true Israel is this: Romans 2:28-29 "28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither circumcision, which is outward
in the flesh:29 But he a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision of the heart, in the spirit, not in the letter; whose
praise not of men, but of God"
Have you seen Jesus Christ dying for your sins? If not, pray Jeremiah
17:14 "Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou my praise."
Yes, the signs are that the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand: Isaiah 51:6 "Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon
the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that
dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished."
1:10-12 "10 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of
thine hands:11 They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;12 And as a vesture shalt
thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail."
3:8-9 "8 Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination to
gather the nations, that I assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, all my fierce anger: for all the
earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.9 For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they all call
upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent."
Believe the Gospel!
1:16 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth;
to the Jew first, and also to the Greek."
1 Corinthians 1:23-24 "23 But we preach Christ
crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and
Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God."
1 O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth.2 Sing unto the LORD, bless his name; shew forth
his salvation from day to day.3 Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people.4 For the LORD great, and
greatly to be praised: He to be feared above all gods.5 For all the gods of the nations: idols, but the LORD made the heavens.6
Honour and majesty before him: strength and beauty in his sanctuary.7 Give unto the LORD, O ye kindreds of the people, give
unto the LORD glory and strength.8 Give unto the LORD the glory his name: bring an offering, and come into his courts.9 O
worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth.10 Say among the heathen: the LORD reigneth: the
world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously.11 Let the heavens rejoice,
and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.12 Let the field be joyful, and all that therein: then
shall all the trees of the wood rejoice 13 Before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge
the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.
THE LORD JESUS CHRIST
