Revelation chapter 3
Your deeds known, you are alive, but you are dead, wake up, strengten the things:
Assembly in Sardis: Rev. 3:1-5 "I know your deeds, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. Wake up, and strengthen the things that remain, which were about to die; for I have not found your deeds completed in the sight of My Eli. So remember what you have received and heard; and keep it, and repent. Therefore if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come to you. But you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their garments; and they will walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. He who overcomes will thus be clothed in white garments; and I will not erase his name from the book of life, and I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels."
All your deeds are known to Him, from the time of your acknowledgment of His name that only brings you to His Kingdom of Life from the kingdom of death (lawlessness), for you has His testimony of salvation/restoration for all. Matt. 10:22 "You will be hated by all because of My name, but it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved."
But the idleness of doing His deeds of Life daily can loosen the one back to the deeds of death, unless the one is awaken out of the kingdom of stumbling blocks. Matt. 13:20-21 "The one on whom seed was sown on the rocky places, this is the man who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy; yet he has no firm root in himself, but is only temporary, and when affliction or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he falls away." The one has received His Name (Seed/Word of Life) sown in the heart joyfully, but has not performed the deeds out of His Word of Life, because the affliction or persecution of the fleshly minded has turned him away. If the one does not stay awaken till the end of the fleshly age, the fleshly valuation (reward) of his forgetfulness is lost (erased) from the book (Kingdom) of Life when He comes like a thief at the time of harvest (end of fleshly age), but the spiritual valuation (reward) of his remembrances is saved. 1 Cor. 3:13-15 "Each man's work will become evident; for the day will show it because it is to be revealed with fire, and the fire itself will test the quality of each man's work. If any man's work which he has built on it remains, he will receive a reward. If any man's work is burned up, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire."
But if you stay awakened with His Word of Life till the end of your fleshly age like a few people in Sardis who have kept their garments/Word of purity in their minds and hearts from the works of filthiness, your spiritual valuation is increased according to your good deeds as you are worthy to walk with Him in whiteness (purity).
Let us continue our works steadily in Messiah till the end of fleshly expiration as to overcome all the world of lawlessness, to build our spiritual reward/treasure in His Kingdom of purity where we will be clothed (honored) with the garment/Word of purity/whiteness.
The book of life:
Rev. 3:5 "He who overcomes will thus be clothed in white garments; and I will not erase his name from the book of life, and I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels."; 13:8 "All who dwell on the earth will worship him, everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who has been slain."; 17:8 "The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to come up out of the abyss and go to destruction. And those who dwell on the earth, whose name has not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, will wonder when they see the beast, that he was and is not and will come."
All the fleshly births (bodies) come into the foundation (beginning) of their mortal world dominated by Satan the father of lawlessness as they cannot inherit the Kingdom (book) of Life except for their spiritual bodies. Only the Spirit births (bodies) are written in the book (Kingdom) of Life, for they do the deeds of His Law of Life.
Your deeds known and keeping of His testimony:
Assembly in Philadelphia: Rev. 3:8-12 "I know your deeds. Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power, and have kept My word, and have not denied My name. Behold, I will cause those of the synagogue of Satan, who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie I will make them come and bow down at your feet, and make them know that I have loved you. Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. I am coming quickly; hold fast what you have, so that no one will take your crown. He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My Eli, and he will not go out from it anymore; and I will write on him the name of My Eli, and the name of the city of My Eli, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My Eli, and My new name."
Your deeds are known with your spiritual powers that are not shut because you keep His Word of Life and have not denied His name of holiness. His examination of your spiritual strengths in obeying His Law is performed to increase your spiritual maturity in Messiah with the works of lawlessness (of synagogue of Satan) tested against you. Keeping His Word of perseverance gives your spiritual strength from the hour of testing that comes in the world of mortality where every one must be examined of his obedience to His Law of Life or not. Rom. 2:9-10 "There will be tribulation and distress for every soul of man who does evil (fleshly minded), of the Jew first and also of the Greek, but glory and honor and peace to everyone who does good (spiritual minded), to the Jew first and also to the Greek."; 5:2-5 "And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of Elohim has been poured out within our hearts through Ruach haKodesh who was given to us." The daily renewing of your spiritual growth in Messiah that builds your knowledge of His Word of Light keeps you apart from being snatched away by the work of ignorance. If you overcome every deed of lawlessness in your spiritual trial, His temple (city of New Jerusalem) comes down to your sanctified heart where His name of holiness is written (dwells in), you always behold Him.
For those days will be a time of tribulation:
Matt. 24:21 "For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will."; Mark 13:19-20 "For those days will be a time of tribulation such as has not occurred since the beginning of the creation which Elohim created until now, and never will. Unless YHWH had shortened those days, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect, whom He chose, He shortened the days."; Rev. 3:10-11 “Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. I am coming quickly; hold fast what you have, so that no one will take your crown.”
Those days are shortened for the Spirit filled who are separated from the kingdom of lawlessness for the trials of the spiritual life while keeping His Law of Life to the ends of fleshly ages. The tribulation of our spiritual life is to renew our knowledge of goodness that prevails over the powers of evilness as to increase our spiritual valuation by our obedience to His Law of Life. Acts 14:22 "...Through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of Elohim."; Rom. 5:3-5 "And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of Elohim has been poured out within our hearts through Ruach haKodesh who was given to us."
Ezra 7:27 "Blessed be YHWH, the Elohey of our fathers, who has put such a thing as this in the king's heart, to adorn the house of YHWH which is in Yerushalam"; Ps. 135:21 "Blessed be YHWH from Zion, Who dwells in Yerushalam. Praise YHWH!"; :Rev. 3:12 “He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My Eli, and he will not go out from it anymore; and I will write on him the name of My Eli, and the name of the city of My Eli, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My Eli, and My new name."; 21:2 “And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from Elohim, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband.”
We, the spiritual body, (new bride) are prepared for our Bridegroom (Yahushua the Messiah) to dwell in our spiritual temple (sanctified hearts), for the new Jerusalem (Yerushalayim) is the city (unity) of His perfect/immortal marriage for all who bear His name and serve Him eternally. The house (temple) of YHWH is in the midst of your spiritual body/kingdom/heart (New Jerusalem).
Yerushalayim in Hebrew #3389 means founded peaceful. Yahushua takes away the old peace lost (old temple of Jerusalem) from the repentant ones and gives the new temple of Jerusalem found in the sanctified hearts. Matt. 10:34 “Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.”; John 2:19 “Yahushua answered them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”
Neither cold nor hot (lukewarm):
Rev. 3:15-16 "I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth."
There must be either hot (spiritual work) or cold (fleshly work), for all the works of spiritual life are preserved in His Kingdom of Life and all the fleshly works are perished. Being the lukewarm means you lose the valuation of coldness (unworthiness) and do not know the valuation of hotness (worthiness). Let us throw away all the works of coldness (lawlessness) and keep His commandments of Life (hotness) till the ends of our fleshly ages.
Your deeds known, but your work of lukewarmness, blindness, poverty, conceit:
Assembly in Laodicea: Rev. 3:15-21 "I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth. Because you say, I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing, and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked, I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may become rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see. Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline; therefore be zealous and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me. He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne."
Your deeds are known by His revelation shown to you that your spiritual works according to your obedience to His commandments of Life are only known either by the fruits of hotness (goodness) or coldness (evilness), for all the works of goodness must prevail over the works of badness (lawlessness). If the one does not produce what is hot (good) out of His Word of Life sowed in the sanctified heart and he does not decrease what is cold (evil) out of the word of lawlessness, all the production of lukewarmness is worthless and thrown out to the kingdom of nothingness, for he does not know the difference of its works of opposition like he does what is mixed (the words of goodness and evilness). He commands us to build our spiritual house (body) by His Word of wisdom daily (buy His gold) by His refinement (fire), for all the fleshly bodies do the works of opposition (wretchedness, miserableness, poorness, blindness, and nakedness). Your spiritual growth in Messiah with your obedience to His Law of Life is clothed with your riches (spiritual valuation) in His Kingdom of Life. All the works of shamefulness (nakedness) shall fall away as you increase His things of wisdom in your spiritual life with His reproof and discipline. Let us all be zealous and repent (renew) our spiritual life while growing in Messiah (spiritual maturity) to the full. He is always with us if we overcome all the works of opposition that are against us.
His first coming (sowing time):
His first coming (sowing time) is at the beginning of His warmth/our spiritual life (awaken out of the kingdom of coldness) to plant His Seed/Word of Life in the repentant hearts of men (field/world). Rev. 3:20 "Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me." He comes daily to knock the doors (entrance) of the hearts (mortal houses) as to hear His Word of Light like to wake out of the kingdom of darkness/coldness. His first coming is to plant His Word of Life in the sanctified heart to grow the spiritual production (talent/gift of Life) by obeying His Law of Life till the end of fleshly age.
