I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. (Revelation 3:11)
The church at Philadelphia, like the church at Smyrna, was a good church for which Jesus had no condemnation.In this message Jesus does not tell them to repent of their sins, rather, to simply “hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown.” All He requires of them is for them to keep doing what they are doing. They will only lose their “crown” (i.e. reward) if they let someone else change them by introducing sin and false doctrines into their church.
