I know your works, and where you dwell, where Satan's throne is. And you hold fast to my name, and did not deny my faith even in the days of Antipas my faithful witness, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells.
If any one does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his own family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
When the blood of Stephen your witness was shed, I also was standing by and approving, and keeping the garments of those who were killing him.'
I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich) and I know the slander of those who say that they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.
When they persecute you in one city, flee to another. For truly, I say to you, you will not have gone through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes.
Then they will deliver you up to tribulation, and put you to death; and you will be hated by all nations for my name's sake.
Follow the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in the faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.

Remember therefore what you have received and heard; keep it, and repent. But if you will not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come upon you.
I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word, and have not denied my name.
I am coming soon; hold fast to what you have, so that no one may take your crown.
Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.
