New Living Translation (NLT)

The Message to the Church in Sardis

“Write this letter to the angel[a] of the church in Sardis. This is the message from the one who has the sevenfold Spirit[b] of God and the seven stars:

“I know all the things you do, and that you have a reputation for being alive—but you are dead. 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. Go back to what you heard and believed at first; hold to it firmly. Repent and turn to me again. If you don’t wake up, I will come to you suddenly, as unexpected as a thief.

“Yet there are some in the church in Sardis who have not soiled their clothes with evil. They will walk with me in white, for they are worthy. All who are victorious will be clothed in white. I will never erase their names from the Book of Life, but I will announce before my Father and his angels that they are mine.

“Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.

The Message to the Church in Philadelphia

“Write this letter to the angel of the church in Philadelphia.

This is the message from the one who is holy and true,
    the one who has the key of David.
What he opens, no one can close;
    and what he closes, no one can open:[c]

“I know all the things you do, and I have opened a door for you that no one can close. You have little strength, yet you obeyed my word and did not deny me. Look, I will force those who belong to Satan’s synagogue—those liars who say they are Jews but are not—to come and bow down at your feet. They will acknowledge that you are the ones I love.

10 “Because you have obeyed my command to persevere, I will protect you from the great time of testing that will come upon the whole world to test those who belong to this world. 11 I am coming soon.[d] Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take away your crown. 12 All who are victorious will become pillars in the Temple of my God, and they will never have to leave it. And I will write on them the name of my God, and they will be citizens in the city of my God—the new Jerusalem that comes down from heaven from my God. And I will also write on them my new name.

13 “Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.

 

 

 

Chapter 27

The Rapture

What is the Rapture. What does this word mean?

Good-Bye

lust of the eyes,

lust of the flesh,

Pride of life and

The Force Of Greed,

Pure Evil,

The Love For Stuff

And Self Centered.

We are out of here.

We have been set free.

I was dead in Christ,

but now I live in Him

and With Him

Forever.

(1 Cor 15:42 NKJV) So also is the resurrection of the dead.

The body is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption.

 

(1 Cor 15:43 NKJV) It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory.

It is sown in weakness, it is raised in power.

 

(1 Cor 15:44 NKJV) It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body.

There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

 

(1 Cor 15:45 NKJV) And so it is written, "The first man Adam became a living being."

The last Adam(Jesus) became a life-giving spirit.

 

(1 Cor 15:46 NKJV) However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural,

 and afterward the spiritual.

 

(1 Cor 15:47 NKJV) The first man was of the earth, made of dust;

 the second Man is the Lord from heaven.

 

(1 Cor 15:48 NKJV) As was the man of dust, so also are those

who are made of dust; and as is the heavenly Man,

so also are those who are heavenly.

 

(1 Cor 15:49 NKJV) And as we have borne the image

of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.

 

(1 Cor 15:50 NKJV) Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood

cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption.

 

(1 Cor 15:51 NKJV) Behold, I tell you a mystery:

We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed;

 

(1 Cor 15:52 NKJV) in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye,

at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound,

and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

(1 Cor 15:53 NKJV) For this corruptible must put on incorruption,

 and this mortal must put on immortality.

 

(1 Cor 15:54 NKJV) So when this corruptible has put on incorruption,

and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought

to pass the saying that is written: "Death is swallowed up in victory."

 

(1 Cor 15:55 NKJV) "O Death, where is your sting?

 O Hades, where is your victory?"

 

(1 Cor 15:56 NKJV) The sting of death is sin,

and the strength of sin is the law.

 

(1 Cor 15:57 NKJV) But thanks be to God, who gives us

 the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

(1 Cor 15:58 NKJV) Therefore, my beloved brethren,

be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord,

 knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.

 

 

The End And The Beginning

(Rev 21:1 NKJV) Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth,

for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away.

Also there was no more sea.

 

(Rev 21:2 NKJV) Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem,

coming down out of heaven from God, prepared

as a bride adorned for her husband.

 

(Rev 21:3 NKJV) And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying,

"Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men,

and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people.

God Himself will be with them and be their God.

 

(Rev 21:4 NKJV) "And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes;

there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying.

There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away."

 

(Rev 21:5 NKJV) Then He who sat on the throne said,

 "Behold, I make all things new." And He said to me,

"Write, for these words are true and faithful."

(Rev 21:6 NKJV) And He said to me, "It is done!

I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.

 I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.

(Rev 21:7 NKJV) "He who overcomes shall inherit all things,

and I will be his God and he shall be My son.

(Rev 21:8 NKJV) "But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable,

 murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and

all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone,

 which is the second death."

  • the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death."
  • "He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.
