Revelation 3:7-12 KJVS
“ 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.  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.  Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.  Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name”
A Pillar in the Temple.
As in part one of this Study, we seen the Gods servant’s who are Poor in Spirit will thirst, and hunger after righteousness. They will hearken to Our Heavenly Fathers Word, and not leave it . They will stand in Gods Truth.
Let’s look at the Word Pillar in the Greek.

Compare G5087.
the Church of Philadelphia ( 232 Very Elect) will not waiver away from what they always hungered, and thirsted after.. Gods Truth.
Let’s look at John the Baptist.
What did Jesus say about John?
Matthew 11:7-11 KJVS
 And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind?  But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings’ houses.  But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet.  For this is he , of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.  Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.”
Although the 232 Very Elect are not Prophets, they are Vessels which the Holy Spirit will work through when they are delivered up during the Sixth Trump ( Mark 13 verses 9 through 11.)
Like John the Baptist the 232 Very Elect will not be a reed shaken throughout the Four Winds ( Hour of Temptation,) and especially in the middle Five Month Hour of Temptation when Satan will appear in Jerusalem as the king of fierce countenance.
Daniel 8:23-24 KJVS
 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.  And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.”
A mighty Wind which will be Satan’s appearance as the False Christ, will shake most of Gods children who don’t stay close to the Word of God , off the Tree of Life which is Jesus Christ. This will happen at 666, (Middle of the Five Month Long Hour of Temptation .)
Revelation 6:12-13 KJVS
 “And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;  And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.”
The 232 won’t budge.
As John the Baptist didn’t wear soft clothing in kings houses, and the 232 Very Elect when they are delivered up to that king of fierce countenance, won’t wear such apparel either.
The 232 Very Elect will stand firm, and wait for their fine White Linen, when the true Christ returns at the end of the Five Month Long Hour of Temptation, at the the Seventh Trump.
Revelation 19:7-9 KJVS
 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.  And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.  And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.”
The 232 Very Elect are the Five Wise Virgins that will keep their Vessels ( themselves) filled with Oil which is Gods Truth.
Matthew 25:1-13 KJVS
“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.  And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.  They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:  But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.  While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.  And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.  Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.  And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.  But the wise answered, saying, Not so ; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.  And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.  Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.  But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.  Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.”
Jesus Christ is the Word of God .
John 1:1-5 KJVS
” In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  The same was in the beginning with God.  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.  In him was life; and the life was the light of men.  And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”
At what point do you think the 144,000 stopped hungering or thirsting for Gods Truth?
Christ being the Word of God, will tell the Five unwise Virgins , I know you not.
Isaiah 29:11-13 KJVS
 “And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed:  And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.  Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:”
Do you know Christ by His Words, or do you know man by his precepts?
Remain Poor in Spirit , stay firm and become a Pillar , if it be Gods Will.
Don’t let your Vessel (You) be tossed to and fro, by the Wind (Ephesians Chapter 4 Verse 14.)
