By what name is the fifth state of the church addressed?


"Unto the angel of the church in Sardis write." Rev. 3: 1.
NOTE - Sardis means song of joy, or that which remains. A cause for joy at that time was the fact
that the great tribulation of the people of God was at an end. It was only as a result of the Reformation that
any of God's people were left remaining. See Matt. 24:21,22, and note under question 14. The Sardis
church continued from the close of the papal power, AD. 1798, until the beginning of the great advent
movement in 1833, which was marked by the falling of the stars on November 13 of that year, as foretold
by Christ in Matt. 24:29.
