Jesus Christ to the Philadelphians


CHAPTER 1
1 And to the angel/messenger of the ekklesia in Philadelphia write:
He who is holy, who is true, who has the key of David, who opens and no one will be able to shut/lock, and who shuts/locks and no one will be opening, says this:
2 I am aware of your acts. Behold, I have granted/put before you an open door which no one can shut/lock, because/that you have a little power, and have kept My word, and do not deny/disown My name.
3 Behold, I will cause/grant those of the synagogue of Satan, who say that they are Jews, and are not, but lie --- behold, I will be making them to come and bow down/worship at your feet, and to know that I have loved you.
4 Because you have kept the word of My perseverance/endurance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole inhabited (world), to test those who dwell upon the earth.
5 I am coming quickly/swiftly; hold fast what you have, in order that no one take your crown/wreath.
6 He who is conquering/overcoming, I will be making him to be a pillar in the temple of My God, and he will not go out from it anymore; and I will write upon him the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, the new Jerusalem, which is descending out of heaven from My God, and My new name.
7 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the ekklesias.
