“And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast 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 thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more 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 cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches” (Revelation 3:7-13, KJV).
(Note: The writer is using the true name of the Promised Messiah of Israel on this article, which is Rabbi Yeshua HaMashiach. The name ‘Jesus Christ’ on this article has been deleted and replaced with the true name of Yeshua HaMashiach or Rabbi Yeshua. Most of the articles on this website have already been treated the same way.’)
In his letters to the seven churches of God in chapter 2 and 3 of the book of Revelation, Rabbi Yeshua HaMashiach had written a very special letter to the Church in Philadelphia. The letter stands out among the rest of the other letters for it is very obvious that Yeshua the Promised Messiah of God to the people of Israel had acknowledged and recognized them as a righteous congregation. They have no need of repentance in comparison to the rest of the other Churches. The seven Church eras in the history of the Church are not understood by many bible-reading people on earth.
Most religious authorities and biblical scholars today believe the letters of Rabbi Yeshua to the seven Churches describe the characteristics in this end of time of the Churches of God. Most people have assumed that the letters are indeed letters for the seven Churches in Asia Minor at the time that Yochanan (John) had written them. These beliefs reflect the lack of understanding about the written word of God especially on the book of Revelations by many Christian Church leaders and ministers. The words of Rabbi Yeshua written by the apostles are often prophetic in nature ‘for the testimony of Yeshua is the Spirit of prophecy’ (Revelation 19:10, The Complete Jewish Bible).
There are many self-appointed and self-proclaimed evangelists and ministers of God today. They run without being sent. They thought their knowledge and understanding of the Holy Bible are sufficient enough to make them an evangelist or minister of God. A servant of God must possess a good character, good moral background and respectable personality not to mention divine appointment and ordination. It is not enough that the Church they are leading has grown in numbers when it comes to membership and adherents. Numbers can turn the leaders of the Church to raving lunatics and false prophets overnight particularly when their knowledge is not inspired and divine. Pretty soon they would be claiming that they are hearing the voice of God directly and they would relegate the Holy Bible into a nonsensical religious book.
There are many people on earth today that are making a killing out of the written word of God. The preaching of the gospel is making them rich. They use the word of God in their speeches and writings but when it comes to living in accordance to the teachings of God that is rarely been done and followed.
“And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, And cinnamon, and odors, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all. The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
“And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! For in one hour so great riches is come to naught. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate”( Revelation 18:11-19, KJV).
Christianity is a false religion propagated by the Roman Catholic Church all over the world. When the Vatican City is burned down as prophesied (Revelation 18) all of the Christian leaders, ministers and pastors on earth are going to change their religion into Judaism. The coded term ‘merchants of the earth’ prophetically refers to the Christian ministers all over the world that have already become rich and wealthy through the preaching of the words written in the Holy Bible. The gospel about Yeshua HaMashiach is false when it comes to the Christian religion. Like the Roman Catholic Church, those ‘merchants’ are claiming that Yeshua HaMashiach had started the religion known today as Christianity, which is not true at all but a blatant satanic lie.
The name ‘Jesus’ is not even mentioned in the original manuscripts where the writings of the Holy Bible are based upon. It has nothing to do with the son of Joseph and Mary but merely a fictitious name created by the first Pope of the Roman Catholic Church whose name is Simon Magus. Jesus means the Son of Zeus (can be pronounced as ‘sus’) the King of the gods in Mt. Olympus.
Rabbi Yeshua is telling the other remnants of the seven Churches to repent also of the way they are calling Him. The seven churches in prophecy believe Rabbi Yeshua and all of his apostles and disciples had started the religious movement known as Christianity. The people who believe in the name of Yeshua today have been led to believe that the Law of Moses is already obsolete and irrelevant. They said the Torah should no longer be followed. An evil doctrine like that has made sinners out of all the members of the prophesied seven Churches. That is the reason why Rabbi Yeshua enjoins them all in Revelation 2 and 3 to repent.
If they would not repent, they would not become part of the coming Kingdom of God. The Kingdom of God is also called the Kingdom of Heaven and when it finally comes the people all over the world will realize that it is the Kingdom of the Jews.
You have to be Jewish internally and externally to inherit the coming Kingdom of God. Rabbi Yeshua is a Jew—a Jewish Messiah—and that is something that the believers should not forget and always bear in mind.
But why do the Christian believers could not grasp and see that?
