5th Message: How to Stay Saved and Keep Your Name in the Book of Life!
A Message from Jesus to the Dead Christians
(Sardis) Revelation 3:1-6

Jesus describes Himself: I Own the Church and I know what’s going on in it.
1. I have the Seven Spirits of God
2. I have the Seven Stars. (The 7 Messengers of the Church).

Jesus Knows:
1. Your works
2. You have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. You have branded yourself to be alive but its just an image. You are hanging around the Churches, going through the motions, but you are spiritually dead. I know, I’m the One really in charge.

Your Instructions:
1. Be watchful. Watch and Pray.
2. Strengthen the things which remain, that are not dead yet. Why? I have not found your works mature before God
3. Remember what you heard before, hold on to them, and repent.

IF You don’t watch, you won’t know when I (Jesus) am coming back.

That’s the 2nd time Jesus told the dead Christians to watch and pray.
 
41: Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. Matthew 26

Be Aware! Watch and see what is going on, and then pray to God about what you see.
Instead of being spiritually asleep, watch!
Good things about this Church: They have a few names that have not defiled their garments (have not slipped into an unrighteous lifestyle after being saved).
Promise: They will walk with Jesus in white.
-White garments symbolize your righteousness.
-There were only a FEW Christians in Sardis that were still living in their righteousness.
-Those are the ONLY individuals that will walk with Christ in white.

Promise:
He that Overcomes (their spiritual deadness and unrighteous acts)
1. Will be clothed in white raiment: (righteousness).
2. Jesus will NOT blot their name out of the book of life. (Meaning that if they don’t overcome, He WILL blot their name out of the book of life). Jesus already had plans to blot their name out of the book of life, but if they overcome, He won’t.
3. He will confess their name before God the Father and His angels.

If you have a heart to listen and understand, please pay attention, concentrate, and take heed to the deeper meanings that the Spirit seeks to express to many different groups of Christians.

If Jesus says that He can blot your name out of the Book of Life, that means He can do it. Jesus doesn’t make vain threats, or waste His words.

If you are a “dead” Christian; You are in church, and have a name that you are alive, but are really DEAD, then YOU NEED TO OVER COME THIS PROBLEM. If you are with a group of Christians where most of you are spiritually dead and living unrighteous, you need to solve this problem.

Otherwise you may get your name blotted out of the book of life by Jesus.

How to Overcome:
1. You need to watch:
a. Be Spiritually aware instead of asleep.
b. Pray about what you see.
2. You need to strengthen yourself in the spirit.
a. Through Prayer in the Spirit
b. Rich study of God’s Word
c. Fasting.
3. Don’t defile yourself with corruption or unrighteous acts.
a. Live righteously in real life everyday.
b. Develop a hatred for things that are unclean to God.

Some people think: “Once Save always Saved.”

They think because they prayed a prayer a long time ago, or they were baptized as kids, or because they still go to church and have a name that they are alive, that everything is okay and they are righteous in God’s sight.

Well, Jesus said that He owns the Spirits of God and the Messengers of the Churches. He knows who really is living righteous and clean. He saved you for a relationship with Him, not to put your name in a membership.

If you have a “name,” image, or brand that you are alive spiritually, but you really are dead spiritually: you need to repent, watch, pray, strengthen, and stop defiling your righteous spiritual white clothes with filthy actions.

If you overcome this “dead” Christianity, you will be really righteous in Christ’s eyes, and Jesus will keep your name in the book of life. Otherwise, He’ll blot it out.
