The church of Philadelphia was located in the city situated on the route of the Imperial Post from Rome to the East. It was recognized for its’ temples Artemes, Zeus, and Aphrodite.

Jesus introduces Himself to the church as Holy, Truth, and a Controller.

This church had access to Jesus; there was no rebuke found here. They were physically weak; however, they kept His Name and His word. For this, Jesus commended them. He recognized the persecution done to them by Jewish impersonators and informed them He would show His love for them by making their enemies subject to them.

They were exhorted to hold fast and not surrender to the world: thusly, losing their victor’s crown. The overcomers would have a secure place in God.

The characteristic feature of this church is that of a missionary, and its’ state was  obedience, faithfulness, and favor.

Jesus said that this church stood before an open door.  I believe that this door was not just for the natural things of the world but also for spiritual. If you stood before an open door, what would be your priority, the natural or the spiritual?
