[14] And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

[15] I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

[16] So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

[17] Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

[18] I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

[19] As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

[20] Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

[21] To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

[22] He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

— KJV, Revelation of John 3:14-22

The laodicean church is the church age that we are currently in. It is the church age after the philadelphian church age. The philadelphian church age is the church age when the king james bible was created roughly 1500-1900.

The current church age, the laudicean church age, is a church that Jesus Christ spues out [16].

Though there are those during this church age that are saved and on their way to heaven. These are those that Jesus Christ loves and rebukes and chasten [19].

Notice also that Jesus Christ is not allowed into the church during this church age. He is standing outside knocking on the door [20].
