Revelation 3:8

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 8 I know your works. Behold, I have set before you an open door, and no man can shut it; for you have a little strength, and have kept my word, and have not denied my name. [Notice again! Jesus is referencing their works, which are works of loving obedience to the commands you hear spoken from God in your heart, which works are energized by faith and are essential. When Paul said, "not by works," he was speaking of dead works, (from your own will), from the law: circumcision, washings, sacrifices, special foods, sabbath restrictions, days, feasts, tithing, etc.]
