And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. – Revelation 3:1 – 6

Dearly beloved brethren, as you study, this fifth church, it calls for personal examination .
This is because, you are the church, Jesus is not referring to the name of your assembly, but yourself, because you are the church, He bought with His blood.

Acts 20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

The letter to the Church at Sardis was very frightening.

This Church was one of the two which received unmixed reproof.

Smyrna and Philadelphia received no blame; Sardis and Laodicea received no praise.

This Church in Sardis had no Nicolaitans, no Balaam, no Jezebel.

But there was worse evil than the presence of what was morally and doctrinally corrupt.

The majority of the members were full of impassiveness, apathy and indifference to spiritual things.

The numbness of spiritual torpor and death is more hopeless than unwise toleration

This is a church sunk in spiritual deadness.

The spiritual estate of this church, informed the introduction of Christ.

They had a name that they were alive physically but dead spiritually.

Won’t you examine yourself too. It is true you are called a Christian. Are you spiritually alive or dead?

Please examine yourself.

And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. . – Revelation 3:1 – 6

Our Lord holds in his hand the angels of the Church.

He had also the Seven Spirit wherewith to quicken them.

Those that are alive owe their life and growth to him. Those that are dying or dead may be restored to life by him.

Thou hast a name that thou livest, and thou art dead.

See the strong rebuke of Christ in love.

Revelation 3:1 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. 3:2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.

Our Lord called them as usual to repentance. This was because, He had no pleasure in the death of the wicked.

Revelation 3:3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

Ezekiel 33:11 Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Because, the eyes of our Lord could capture all things in the midst of His people, He gave encouragement to the few among them still standing.

Hebrews 4:13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

Revelation 3:4 Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.

He ended up encouraging them to overcome, just like He is saying the same thing to you in particular.

Revelation 3:5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. 3:6 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

The good Lord shall help you in particular to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.

And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. . – Revelation 3:1 – 6
