These are my holy and true words. My Father has placed on my shoulder the key of the house of David. What I open no one can shut, and what I shut no one can open. As in the days of my servant, Eliakim son of Hilkiah, my Father has clothed me with a robe, fastened a sash around me, and given me his authority. I will be a father to those who live in Jerusalem, to the people of Judah, and throughout the world.
I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut.
Since you have kept my word and my commands and have not denied my name, but rather have endured patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is coming to test those who live on the earth.
Hold on to what you have so that no one will take your crown.
He who overcomes I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will he leave.
I will write on him the name of my God. I will write on him the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God. I will also write on him my new name.
Hear with your listening ears to what the Holy Spirit says to the faithful church that endures to the end.
The very character we exhibit in our present surroundings is an indication of what we will be like in other surroundings. Oswald Chambers
