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 6:6; 1 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. 6:9; Heb. 12:3, 5not 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.
