To the Church in Sardis1“To the angelOr messenger ; also in verses 7 and 14of the church in Sardis write:These are the words of him who holds the seven spiritsThat is, the sevenfold Spiritof God and the seven stars. I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead.2Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have found your deeds unfinished in the sight of my God.
3Remember, 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.
