1“To the angel of the church of Ephesus write,‘These things says #Rev. 1:16He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, #Rev. 1:13who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands: 2#Ps. 1:6“I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And #John 6:61 John 4:1you have tested those #2 Cor. 11:13who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars; 3and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have #Gal. 6:9Heb. 12:35not become weary. 4Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. 5Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, #Matt. 21:41or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent.
