The PHILADELPHIA CHURCH'S keeping of Christ's Word is the rectification of the Ephesus Church failure of "leaving her first love." (Rev 2:4). The "FIRST LOVE" is the Love of Christ by the Church. This is where the Ephesus Church had fallen (Rev 2:5). And this is where the PHILADELPHIA CHURCH have arisen!

KEEPING CHRIST'S WORD MEANS LOVING HIM, AND CHRIST WILL REVEAL HIS MESSIANIC KABBALAH WISDOM TO THEM
"HE WHO HAS MY COMMANDMENTS AND KEEPS THEM, HE IT IS WHO LOVES ME. And he who loves Me shall be loved by My Father, and I WILL LOVE HIM AND WILL REVEAL MYSELF TO HIM. (Joh 14:21 MKJV)
"IF A MAN LOVES ME, HE WILL KEEP MY WORD. And My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him. (Joh 14:23 MKJV)
"HE WHO DOES NOT LOVE ME DOES NOT KEEP MY WORDS... (Joh 14:24 MKJV)
The PHILADELPHIA CHURCH'S keeping of Christ's Word is the rectification of the Ephesus Church failure of "leaving her first love." (Rev 2:4). The "FIRST LOVE" is the Love of Christ by the Church. This is where the Ephesus Church have fallen (Rev 2:5). And this is where the PHILADELPHIA CHURCH have arisen (Rev 3:8)! The following verse was Christ's message and warning to the Ephesus Church and the other Churches (Rev 2:5).
"Therefore remember from where you have fallen, and repent, and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and will remove your Lampstand (Menorah) out of its place unless you repent. (Rev 2:5 MKJV)
The Lampstand or Menorah in Hebrew, is the symbol of God's Messianic Kabbalah Wisdom. The Ephesus Church possessed this Wisdom initially, but she lost it when she became engrossed in her NIGLEH (Outer Work = Gospel preaching). For an in-depth explanation of the Menorah and the Ephesus Church failure that led to the loss of Messianic Kabbalah, please go to: WHAT IS THE MENORAH (CANDLESTICK)? IT IS THE SYMBOL OF THE MESSIANIC KABBALAH WISDOM AND LIGHT! The Church or the BRIDE OF CHRIST Must Be a Menorah of Light!
Thus, the Menorah or Messianic Kabbalah was removed from the Ephesus Church and was given to the PHILADELPHIA CHURCH!
The Philadelphia Church was able to restore this Messianic Kabbalah Wisdom when she totally devoted to, and continuously kept Christ's Word. So, now the supernal Messianic Kabbalah was given by Christ to the Philadelphia Church, which became the genuine BRIDE OF CHRIST.
THE PHILADELPHIA CHURCH IS PURIFIED BY THE PURE, LIVING, AND POWERFUL WORD OF GOD
"Jesus said to the Jews who had believed Him, "If you continue in My word, you really are My disciples. You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." (Joh 8:31-32 HCSB)
The Philadelphia Church allowed the pure Word of God to cleanse and purify Her of Her impurities.
"Sanctify them through Your truth. Your Word is truth. (Joh 17:17 MKJV)
CHRIST'S WORD IS ACTUALLY GOD THE FATHER'S WORD
