John’s Greeting to the Seven Churches

4This letter is from John to the seven churches in the province of Asia. Grace and peace to you from the one who is, who always was, and who is still to come; from the sevenfold Spirit before his throne;G2491G2033G1577G3588G1722G773G5485G5213G2532G1515G575G3588G5607G3801G2532G3588G2258G3801G2532G3588G2064G3801G2532G575G2033G4151G3739G2076G1799G846G2362 5and from Jesus Christ.

And everyone will see him—even those who pierced him. And all the nations of the world will mourn for him. Yes! Amen!G2400G2064G3326G3507G2532G3956G3788G3700G846G2532G3748G1574G846G2532G3956G5443G1093G2875G1909G846G3483G281 8"I am the Alpha and the Omega—the beginning and the end," says the Lord God. "I am the one who is, who always was, and who is still to come—the Almighty One."G1473G1510G1G2532G5598G746G2532G5056G3004G2962G3588G5607G3801G2532G3588G2258G3801G2532G3588G2064G3801G3841

Vision of the Son of Man

9I, John, am your brother and your partner in suffering and in God's Kingdom and in the patient endurance to which Jesus calls us. I was exiled to the island of Patmos for preaching the word of God and for my testimony about Jesus.G1473G2491G3588G2532G5216G80G2532G4791G1722G2347G2532G1722G932G2532G5281G2424G5547G1096G1722G3520G2564G3963G1223G3056G2316G2532G1223G3141G2424G5547 10It was the Lord's Day, and I was worshiping in the Spirit. Suddenly, I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet blast.G1096G1722G4151G1722G2960G2250G2532G191G3694G3450G3173G5456G5613G4536 11It said, "Write in a book everything you see, and send it to the seven churches in the cities of Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea."G3004G1473G1510G1G2532G5598G4413G2532G2078G2532G3739G991G1125G1519G975G2532G3992G2033G1577G3588G1722G773G1519G2181G2532G1519G4667G2532G1519G4010G2532G1519G2363G2532G1519G4554G2532G1519G5359G2532G1519G2993 12When I turned to see who was speaking to me, I saw seven gold lampstands.G2532G1994G991G5456G3748G2980G3326G1700G2532G1994G1492G2033G5552G3087 13And standing in the middle of the lampstands was someone like the Son of Man. He was wearing a long robe with a gold sash across his chest.G2532G1722G3319G2033G3087G3664G5207G444G1746G4158G2532G4024G4314G3149G5552G2223 14His head and his hair were white like wool, as white as snow. And his eyes were like flames of fire.G1161G846G2776G2532G2359G3022G5616G2053G3022G5613G5510G2532G846G3788G5613G5395G4442 15His feet were like polished bronze refined in a furnace, and his voice thundered like mighty ocean waves.G2532G846G4228G3664G5474G5613G4448G1722G2575G2532G846G5456G5613G5456G4183G5204 16He held seven stars in his right hand, and a sharp two-edged sword came from his mouth. And his face was like the sun in all its brilliance.G2532G2192G1722G846G1188G5495G2033G792G2532G1537G846G4750G1607G3691G1366G4501G2532G846G3799G5613G2246G5316G1722G846G1411 17When I saw him, I fell at his feet as if I were dead. But he laid his right hand on me and said, "Don't be afraid! I am the First and the Last.G2532G3753G1492G846G4098G4314G846G4228G5613G3498G2532G2007G846G1188G5495G1909G1691G3004G3427G5399G3361G1473G1510G4413G2532G2078 18I am the living one. I died, but look—I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and the grave.G2532G2198G2532G1096G3498G2532G2400G1510G2198G1519G165G165G281G2532G2192G2807G86G2532G2288 19"Write down what you have seen—both the things that are now happening and the things that will happen.G1125G3739G1492G2532G3739G1526G2532G3739G3195G1096G3326G5023 20This is the meaning of the mystery of the seven stars you saw in my right hand and the seven gold lampstands: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.G3466G2033G792G3739G1492G1909G3450G1188G2532G2033G5552G3087G2033G792G1526G32G2033G1577G2532G2033G3087G3739G1492G1526G2033G1577
