14“And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write,
#Is. 65:16; 2 Cor. 1:20‘These things says the Amen, #Rev. 1:5; 3:7; 19:11the Faithful and True Witness, #(Col. 1:15)the Beginning of the creation of God: 15#Rev. 3:1“I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17Because you say, #Hos. 12:8; Zech. 11:5; (Matt. 5:3); 1 Cor. 4:8‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— 18I counsel you #Is. 55:1; Matt. 13:44to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and #2 Cor. 5:3white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19#Job 5:17As many as I love, I rebuke and #Prov. 3:12; (2 Cor. 11:32); Heb. 12:6chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. 20Behold, #Song 5:2I stand at the door and knock. #Luke 12:36, 37; John 10:3If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, #(John 14:23)I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. 21To him who overcomes #Matt. 19:28; 2 Tim. 2:12; (Rev. 2:26; 20:4)I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.
