And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true - Revelation 3:7

And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. – Revelation 3:7-13

Dearly beloved brethren, we begin the study of the sixth letter written to the church of
Philadelphia.

The letter was primarily sent to the pastor, the angel of the church, but by extension to the workers in the church and also members, occupying for Christ, till He comes.

Revelation 3:7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;

Luke 19:13 And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.

This was the second church like Smyrna ,where our righteousness Lord and God saw no condemnation, but rather sent to hem commendation and encouragement.

Beloved brethren, grace to be like these saints in this particular assembly, receive in the mighty name of Jesus.

Revelation 3:8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. 3:9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. 3:11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

Dearly beloved brethren, because of the spiritual standing of these gracious brethren, see the gracious way our master and God, introduced Himself and addressed them.

Revelation 3:7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth

Our Lord Jesus Christ is He that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, .

These are His personal characters. He that is holy and he that is true.

Holy in his nature, and therefore he cannot but be true to his word, for he hath spoken in his holiness.

In addition, He revealed His political character: He hath the key of David. When He opens no being in heaven, earth and under the earth can close what He opens. And when He closes no being can open again.

He hath the key of the house of David, the key of government and authority in His and over His churches.

See some of the things our Lord, usually opens for His church.

1. He opens doors of opportunity to his churches for advancement of His kingdom.

He opens doors of utterance to his ministers and opens the hearts of members to be receptive to God’s unfailing unchanging eternal and infallible Words.

He opens doors of blessings without sorrow and deliverance from all satanic challenges for them to be fulfilled on this side of heaven.

Proverbs 10:22 The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.

Isaiah 8:18 Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.

Obadiah 1:17 But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.

In addition, He opens doors of life eternal for triumphant Bible believing believers like you at the end of time.

Malachi 3:16 Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. 3:17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. 3:18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.

Isaiah 33:15 He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil; 33:16 He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure. 33:17 Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.

Revelation 3:7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;

Dearly beloved brethren, because you are a triumphant Bible believing believer, all these doors shall be opened for you in particular in Jesus mighty name.

2. He shuts the door.s as and when it pleased Him.

He shuts the door of opportunity and the door of utterance, and leaves obstinate sinners shut up in the hardness of their hearts

He shuts the door of church-fellowship against unbelievers and profane persons.

He shuts the door of heaven against the foolish virgins who have slept away their day of grace, and against the workers of iniquity.

Matthew 25:1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 25:2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 25:3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 25:4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 25:5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 25:6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 25:7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 25:8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 25:9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 25:10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 25:11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 25:12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

Beloved brethren, as you remain faithful in His church, no door shall be shut against you in particular in Jesus name m

This particular introduction of Christ were His proper characters, each time He is speaking to Bible believing believers that have endeavoured to be conformed to Him in holiness and truth.

All of these shall be your portion as you follow after Him, till He comes, like these brethren at the church of Philadelphia.

God’s, grace shall avail for you in particular to do so in Jesus mighty name. See it yourself again.

Revelation 3:7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;

See you at the top in Jesus name
