Now is the time for dead Christians to wake up so that the Kingdom of God might be established on the earth!


1 “To the angel of the church in Sardis write: These are the words of him who holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars. [Revelation 1:4,20 & Isaiah 11:1-3] I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead. 2 Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have found your deeds unfinished in the sight of my God. [Jeremiah 32:27 & Philippians 2:6-11] 3 Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; hold it fast, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you. [Matthew 24:42-44]

4 Yet you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their clothes. They will walk with me, dressed in white, for they are worthy. [Acts 13:46 & Colossians 1:9-14] 5 The one who is victorious will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out the name of that person from the book of life, but will acknowledge that name before my Father and his angels. [Psalm 69:28, Daniel 12:1, & Revelation 22:16] 6 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
