Thought For Today

31-Mar-2004

The Holy Bible King James version:

Revelation 3:7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, HE THAT HATH THE KEY OF DAVID, HE THAT OPENETH, AND NO MAN SHUTTETH; AND SHUTTETH, AND NO MAN OPENETH;

My interpretation:

Revelation 3:7 To the angel of the church in Philadelphia you are to write these things said the one that is holy, the one that is always true. The one and only Lord who has the answers, the one that came from the lineage of David, the only one that can open the kingdon of heaven to you because he is the key, no man can shut you out of heaven, and no man can allow you to enter into heaven. You must enter in through the key from the lineage of David which is the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Holy Bible King James version:

Revelation 3:8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

My interpretation:

Revelation 3:8 I recognize the work you have done for my kingdom, and for it you get the credit. Listen closely to what I am about to say, (Said God) I have put in front of you an open door that can not be shut by any man. You still have some faith and belief in me, but they are faltering and starting to fail, you have kept my commandments, and my word, you have not denied that I am who I say I am.

The Holy Bible King James version:

Revelation 3:9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

My interpretation:

Revelation 3:9 Listen closely to what I am about to say, (Said God) I will make those that worship, or live for Satan, the ones that claim to be Jews but are lying, Listen closely to what I am about to say, (Said God) I will make these false Jews, these liars to come and worship at your feet, and they will know that I have loved you.

The Holy Bible King James version all together:

And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, HE THAT HATH THE KEY OF DAVID, HE THAT OPENETH, AND NO MAN SHUTTETH; AND SHUTTETH, AND NO MAN OPENETH; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

My interpretation all together:

To the angel of the church in Philadelphia you are to write these things said the one that is holy, the one that is always true. The one and only Lord who has the answers, the one that came from the lineage of David, the only one that can open the kingdon of heaven to you because he is the key, no man can shut you out of heaven, and no man can allow you to enter into heaven.
