“And to the angel of the church in Sardis write:
Jesus told John to write something to the church at Sardis:
‘The words of him who has the seven spirits of God and the seven stars.
Tell them that these are the words of Jesus Himself.
“‘I know your works.
Jesus wants them to know that He is very well aware of what they've been up to.
ideaexplanation
You have the reputation of being alive,
Even though the world around you thinks you are a living, thriving church
but you are dead.
you are not. You are a dead church.
concessive
Wake up , and strengthen what remains and is about to die,
Therefore , Jesus warns them to wake up and get a grip on whatever "life" remains in the body,
for I have not found your works complete in the sight of my God.
for He is disappointed in what how they're behaving and what they've been up to - lots of works but meaningless to God.
ground
inference
Remember , then, what you received and heard.
(1) Remember the message you first heard and believed.
Keep it , and repent .
then (2) Go back to the beginning and (1) obey the gospel, and then (3) turn away from your dead works and return to God.
progression
If you will not wake up,
If you refuse to wake,
I will come like a thief,
then I will sneak up on you
and you will not know at what hour I will come against you.
when you least expect it. You will have no idea of the time of my arrival.

Yet you have still a few names in Sardis,
However, there is still a remnant of the faithful left in Sardis
people who have not soiled their garments,
meaning there are still a few who have not dirtied themselves with sin,
and they will walk with me in white,
therefore , they are clean and pure and will be with Me,
for they are worthy.
for they have proven themselves worthy.
The one who conquers will be clothed thus in white garments,
The ones who remain faithful to me will be pure (as if dressed in white clothes)
and I will never blot his name out of the book of life.
and their names will remain in the Book of Life forever.
I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels.
As a result, I will acknowledge them in front of My Father and in front of His angels.

He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’
Therefore , before it's too late. Hear. Listen. Heed.
