...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; 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. 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.

And I will clothe him with thy robe, and strengthen him
with thy girdle, and I will commit thy government into
his hand: and he shall be a father to the inhabitants of
Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah. And the key of the
house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall
open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none
shall open.
WHERE DOES THAT DOOR LEAD TO?
ISAIAH 9:6, 7

and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it
with judgment and with justice from henceforth
even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will
perform this.
REVELATION 4:1, 2, 5
After this I looked, and, behold, a door [was]
opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard
[was] as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which
said, Come up hither, and I will show thee things
which must be hereafter.
And immediately I was in the spirit; and,
behold, a throne was set in heaven, and [one] sat
on the throne. And out of the throne proceeded
lightnings and thunderings and voices: and
[there were] seven lamps of fire burning
before the throne, which are the seven Spirits
of God.

And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four
beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had
been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the
seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. And he came
and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon
the throne. And when he had taken the book, the four beasts
and four [and] twenty elders fell down before the Lamb,
having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of
odours, which are the prayers of saints.
JESUS: HOLY PLACE

REVELATION 8:3, 4
And another angel came and stood at the altar,
having a golden censer; and there was given unto
him much incense, that he should offer [it] with

which was before the throne. And the smoke of
the incense, [which came] with the prayers of
the saints, ascended up before God out of the
angel's hand.

ROMANS 2:28, 29
For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither
[is that] circumcision, which is outward in the
flesh: But he [is] a Jew, which is one inwardly; and
circumcision [is that] of the heart, in the spirit,
[and] not in the letter; whose praise [is] not of
men, but of God.

GALATIANS 3:28, 29
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither
bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for
ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye [be]
Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs
according to the promise.
WHO IS A JEW?
ROMANS 9:6-8
Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they [are]
not all Israel, which are of Israel: Neither, because they are the
seed of Abraham, [are they] all children: but, In Isaac shall thy
seed be called. That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these
[are] not the children of God: but the children of the promise are
counted for the seed.

worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in
truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God
[is] a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship
[him] in spirit and in truth.
ELLEN G. WHITE, EARLY WRITING, pp. 54, 55
“Before the throne I saw the Advent people--the
church and the world. I saw two companies, one
bowed down before the throne, deeply interested,
while the other stood uninterested and careless.
Those who were bowed before the throne would
offer up their prayers and look to Jesus; then He
would look to His Father, and appear to be
pleading with Him. A light would come from the
Father to the Son and from the Son to the praying
company. Then I saw an exceeding bright light
come from the Father to the Son, and from the Son
it waved over the people before the throne. But
few would receive this great light. Many came out
from under it and immediately resisted it;…
…others were careless and did not cherish the light,
and it moved off from them. Some cherished it,
and went and bowed down with the little
praying company. This company all received
the light and rejoiced in it, and their
countenances shone with its glory. I saw the
Father rise from the throne, and in a flaming
chariot go into the holy of holies within the veil,
and sit down. Then Jesus rose up from the
throne, and the most of those who were bowed
down arose with Him. ...Those who arose when
Jesus did, kept their eyes fixed on Him as He
left the throne and led them out a little way....
ELLEN G. WHITE CONTINUES...
...Then He raised His right arm, and we heard His
lovely voice saying, "Wait here; I am going to
My Father to receive the kingdom; keep your
garments spotless, and in a little while I will
return from the wedding and receive you to
Myself.“ ... Those who rose up with Jesus
would send up their faith to Him in the holiest,
and pray, "My Father, give us Thy Spirit."
Then Jesus would breathe upon them the Holy
Ghost. In that breath was light, power, and
much love, joy, and peace. I turned to look at the
company who were still bowed before the throne;
they did not know that Jesus had left it.
…Satan appeared to be by the throne, trying to
carry on the work of God. I saw them look up to
the throne, and pray, "Father, give us Thy Spirit."
Satan would then breathe upon them an unholy
influence; in it there was light and much power,
but no sweet love, joy, and peace. Satan's object
was to keep them deceived and to draw back
and deceive God's children.

WHO IS THE SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN?
ELLEN G. WHITE, CHRISTIAN EXPERIENCE
AND TEACHING, p. 207
Satan has a large confederacy, his church. Christ
calls them the synagogue of Satan because the
members are the children of sin. The members of
Satan's church have been constantly working to
cast off the divine law, and confuse the
distinction between good and evil. Satan is
working with great power in and through the
children of disobedience, to exalt treason and
apostasy as truth and loyalty. And at this time
the power of his satanic inspiration is moving the
living agencies to carry out the great rebellion
against God that commenced in heaven.
