The Angel In Philadelphia

Once again focusing on the scripture:

Rev 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;
Rev 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.
Rev 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.
Rev 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
Rev 3:11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
Rev 3:12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
Rev 3:13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. (KJV)

Christ once more introduces Himself as the one with all authority as to who may permit whom to enter the heavens. The angel is in complete approval but has no heavenly "passport" with which to enter the presence of God. (Verse 3:7)

Now that unity is found in the last church of the circuit, the dialectic in the earthly elements (which certainly contradicts itself) cannot be in place; the angel is not an "empty essence". Moreover, the angel has truly circuited and not through mountains of wormwood, but through GF(8) instead, causing the necessary modal collapse of an essence and thereby justifying Christ's new name. As the angel is to "hold that fast which he has", he has apparently attained that rest already and Christ now has the free opportunity to write His new name on his angel. That seven cycle of his circuit completed is become the "open door".

The letter is a personal one applicable to whichever least is now overcoming, and I find little to write to a "church" collective other than that life is found in Christ only, and on Christ's terms.

I can tell the letter is a "personal one" - made to an individual - because whilst the door is opened, it is opened before all by the exit of the least! (Who opens the door to all others by well ordered principle!) That least overall (to whom the letter is addressed) has his own crown, his own inheritance and although every such tested elect (tried as the least) has "little strength" they have passed the trial of temptation already (as sufficiently, not denying God.) As to that same worship due: by extension the least overall (the right hand) is due the worship of all still in the church system - as they require his work to be justified outside of their church in finding the grace of Christ "legally". Is his also (as Christ's hand) the right of refusal?

In any case the identity of the right hand is always due the one that opens that door the widest! His alone is that full inheritance and it is only to be his due!

Jesus knows the angel's works are near completion, the open door set before him was out of the "Church", and all his works were set before him as also to become the "last to be more than the first". The angel himself has a "little strength". An indicator not of tiredness, but of being the one upon whom God has the least influence, and this "little strength" is central to the angel's overcoming. (Verse 3:8) It only makes it more effective.

As justified by the least, every work of repentance is required of all those on Earth, just as every work of grace is enabled from the heavens against all false doctrine and every deception made of the dragon.

Those that "loveth and maketh a lie" in the churches, the sources of false doctrines that are not able to stand sound doctrine themselves, will be required not only to worship the angel as Holy before God (As not all are created equal in the kingdom of God) but also to acknowledge the love Jesus Christ has for His right hand, His angel.

The right hand appears to have some worry over whether he is to be convicted by the letter to Laodicea still. Christ indicates that although he is not yet ready to be drawn into God's presence, he is yet in approval and this obeisance is promised, not for overcoming, but for both His and His angel's own pleasure (satisfaction). The angel has completed his mission, keeping the patient command of Christ (fulfilling Rev 22:16), and he has not ever blasphemed or denied the new name of God. On that basis, knowing the baser nature of the old name, (the self-same mystery which is named "God" itself) the angel is not to be tested as are the rest of the Earth's inhabitants on whether they blaspheme the old name only, disgracing themselves before God rather than giving glory to God's new name held in reserve. (Verse 3:9)

The angel is instructed that Christ comes quickly. He is to retain his doctrine and still be convicted not to backslide - not to re-enter the Church (whilst knowing he is in complete approval as he stands). His crown, his reward, is his already. He is not to lose it, for he is to be a pillar in the temple of God. (Verse 3:11)

No one other than Christ is a base for the pillar and none will build upon it, for the circuit of the angel reaches from repentance under Satan to the heights; to enable the reign of omnipotent God. Even Jesus is justified in His judgement - His dominion by the circuit of His angel, for in the book of Daniel, we find and read:

Dan 7:13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.
Dan 7:14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed. (KJV)

Likewise, Jesus is to write the name of His God, that of the city of his God and also His own new name on the angel. The seven cycle (new Jerusalem) descends down from heaven (in inverse) to the angels circuit, a living proof of God's new name. (Simultaneously treading the winepress also.) In using the reciprocal, unity (election) floats through the seven churches with that unity (and also the zero) dividing the saved from those under the wrath. The new name of God is thus written as is Christ's own new name, and it is the completion of the angel's circuit that accomplishes this - it is an act of writing, completing the election of grace.
