Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. – Revelation 3:2

Dearly beloved brethren, it was true that our loving and gracious Lord did not see anything to commend this assembly for, yet as the good and gracious Shepherd of His people and church, He corrected them in love.

John 10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

1 Peter 2:25 For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.

In the same token, even believers of today, when through their lifestyle have failed the Lord, yet in love, He rebukes them and brings them back to the fold. See what He said again, amplified.

Wake up! Strengthen what little remains, for even what is left is almost dead. I find that your actions do not meet the requirements of my God.

Rouse yourselves and keep awake, and strengthen and invigorate what remains and is on the point of dying; for I have not found a thing that you have done [any work of yours] meeting the requirements of My God or perfect in His sight.

Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. – Revelation 3:2

See, how our Lord instructs in love.

Luke 12:5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.

Mark 13:35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: 13:36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. 13:37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

Luke 21:34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. 21:35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Dearly beloved brethren, the scriptures exhorts Bible believing believers like you to be receptive and be transformed through His loving rebuke. See some of the scriptures.

Proverbs 3:11 My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction: 3:12 For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.

Job 5:17 Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: 5:18 For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole.

Psalms 94:12 Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O LORD, and teachest him out of thy law; 94:13 That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.

Revelation 16:15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.

Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. – Revelation 3:2

The blessed Holy Spirit says those who refuse loving rebuke of our Lord Jesus Christ are bastards.

You shall not be in Jesus mighty name.

Hebrews 12:5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: 12:6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. 12:7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? 12:8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. 12:9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? 12:10 For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. 12:11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.

Our Lord proceeded to give this degenerated church the best advice:

Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. – Revelation 3:2

Be watchful, and strengthen the things, that remains.

He advised them to be upon their watch. The cause of their sinful deadness and declension was that they had let down their watch and the enemy , the devil had taken advantage of them.

Matthew 13:25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

Dearly beloved brethren avoid giving satan opportunity to weaken your spiritual life. The good Lord shall help you in particular in Jesus name.

Whenever you are off your watch, you are likely to lose ground, and therefore must return to your watchfulness against sin, and satan, and whatever is destructive to the life and power of godliness.

To strengthen the things that remain, and that are ready to die. means, strengthen those few brethren still standing, and help them retain their integrity and avert dying like others. See it.

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.

It is a difficult thing to keep up to the life and power of godliness yourself when you are seeing a universal deadness and declension prevailing round about you, except you are very watchful as our Lord advised.

Our Lord continued by saying the work of these brethren were not perfect before God.

Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. – Revelation 3:2

This means their. inward spiritual lifestyle were wanting.

They engaged in shallow and empty prayers not filled up with holy desires.

Their alms-deeds not filled up with true charity, holy days not filled up with suitable devotion of soul to God .

There were not inward affections suitable to help outward acts and expressions.

Beloved brethren, these were the undoing of these brethren in the church at Sardis.

How you yourself needs to heed the exhortation of the
blessed Holy Spirit that says, he that thinketh, he standeth should be watchful not to fall.

1 Corinthians 10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. 10:12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.

You shall not fall in Jesus name.

Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. – Revelation 3:2
