Revelation 3:7-13 Reading the Passage

Be True to Christ – Revelation 3:7-13

3 (7) To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: This is what the one who is holy, the one who is true, the one who holds the key of David, the one who opens and no one can shut, the one who shuts and no one can open, says: (8) I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have a little power, and that you kept my word, and did not renounce my name. (9) Listen; I will cause those who belong to the synagogue of Satan, those who claim to be Jews, but they are not, they are lying—I will cause them to come and bow down at your feet and know that I have loved you. (10) Because you have been faithful to the word which testifies of my perseverance, I in turn will be faithful to keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world in order to test those who live on the earth. (11) I am coming soon; hold on to what you have, so that no one may take your crown. (12) Him who overcomes I will make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall never depart from there. I will write upon him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God—the new Jerusalem that is coming down out of heaven from my God—and my own new name. (13) He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
