The Final Phase of this Pagan-Idolatrous Church that is DEAD to God. She thinks she is Worldly Popular (has a NAME) and she thinks she is ALIVE, but she is DEAD. The Church of SARDIS represents the Worldly Dead Pagan Church ... the time period starting with the Plague, the Black Death of Europe in the 1300's and onward. She exists today, seated in Worldly Power in Rome. She will miss out on the Rapture since Jesus will "come upon" her as a "Thief in the Night". . .
