"And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia (Brotherly love; which acknowledge the oneness of all as the Body of Christ, and practice the example
given in Jesus) write: These things says he that is holy, he that is true, he that has the key of David, he that opens, and no man shuts; and shuts,
and no man opens; I know your works: behold, I have set before you an open door, and no man can shut it: for you have a little strength, and have kept
my word, and have 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 your feet, and to know that I have loved you. Because you have kept the word of my patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation,
which shall come upon the world, to try them that dwell on the earth.
Behold, I come quickly: hold fast to that which you have, that no man take your crown. Him that overcomes will I make a pillar in the temple of my
God, and he shall no more go 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
comes down out of heaven from my God; and I will write on him my new name. He that has an ear, hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches.
And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write: These things says the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of
God; I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot, (complacent), I will spew you out of my mouth. Because you say, I am rich, and increased
with goods, and have need of nothing; and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked: I counsel you to buy of me gold (the
glorious Word: see Isaiah 55: 1) tried in the fire, that you may be rich; and white raiment (enlightenment), that you may be clothed, and that the
shame of your nakedness do not appear; and anoint your eyes with eyesalve, that you may see (the invisible: beyond the flesh). As many as I love, I
rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To
him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that has an
ear, hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches."
The angels are technically portals in the Soul, and their acts are carried out by each primatial priest designated in the story to lead these
churches/assemblies. The spiritual state of each church/faction depends on the directives of the angel of that church/faction. Though these pathways
in the soul have been corrected, their effects still linger on in the experience, from generation to generation; hence the Spirit warns of the
consequences of these things, and why you should turn from them and do the works exemplified in Christ.
The disregard of these warnings, and the current state of defilement of the Word, in that man’s sensibility is covered by insensibility, justifies
the return of the Son of man, to restore truth; hence, “As the lightening comes out of the East, and shines/enlightens even unto the West; so shall
also the coming/return of the Son of man be.” This is why it is necessary for you to understand the mysteries, that you may know what to look
As you were told in The Acts of John, "As you do this dance with me, perceive what I do: for this passion of the primate, which I am about to suffer,
is for you. For you could not at all have understood what you suffer if I had not been sent to thee, as the word of the Father. You that saw what I
suffer saw me as suffering; and seeing it you did not abide, but were wholly moved, moved to make wise. You have me as a bed, rest upon me. Who I am,
thou shall know when I depart. What now I am seen to be, that I am not: you shall see when you come. If you had known how to suffer, you would have
been able not to suffer. Learn to suffer (do not cater to the flesh), and you shall be able not to suffer."
The wooden cross, which you idolize as the passion of Christ, and ignorantly bow to, is not what you suppose it is; it is the light/enlightenment of
the cross that is significant: for the signification of the cross is the separation of those things which are of heaven from those things which are of
Perceive this, Around the cross are a multitude with varying forms; but those within the cross are of the same form and likeness: though the
trueness/fullness of this form is yet to manifest; and above the cross is the Spirit of the Son, the glorified Son of God, the only begotten Light of
the Father, whose divine light illuminates the cross. And until those that are of varying forms take on the form and likeness of those in the cross,
the body is incomplete: therefore the reconciliation of the body into a whole is committed unto the Son of man; and that which needs to be done shall
be done, that all may be brought in, and be conformed to the begotten Light of God.
To be continued...
Peace be with you!!!
