John’s Vision of the Risen Lord

9I, John, your brother and partner in the tribulation, kingdom, and perseverance in Jesus, was on the island called Patmos because of God's word and the testimony about Jesus.G1473G2491G3588G2532G5216G80G2532G4791G1722G2347G2532G1722G932G2532G5281G2424G5547G1096G1722G3520G2564G3963G1223G3056G2316G2532G1223G3141G2424G5547 10I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpetG1096G1722G4151G1722G2960G2250G2532G191G3694G3450G3173G5456G5613G4536 11saying, "Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches: Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea."G3004G1473G1510G1G2532G5598G4413G2532G2078G2532G3739G991G1125G1519G975G2532G3992G2033G1577G3588G1722G773G1519G2181G2532G1519G4667G2532G1519G4010G2532G1519G2363G2532G1519G4554G2532G1519G5359G2532G1519G2993 12I turned to see the voice that was speaking to me. When I turned I saw seven gold lampstands,G2532G1994G991G5456G3748G2980G3326G1700G2532G1994G1492G2033G5552G3087 13and among the lampstands was One like the Son of Man, dressed in a long robe, and with a gold sash wrapped around His chest.G2532G1722G3319G2033G3087G3664G5207G444G1746G4158G2532G4024G4314G3149G5552G2223 14His head and hair were white like wool— white as snow, His eyes like a fiery flame,G1161G846G2776G2532G2359G3022G5616G2053G3022G5613G5510G2532G846G3788G5613G5395G4442 15His feet like fine bronze fired in a furnace, and His voice like the sound of cascading waters.G2532G846G4228G3664G5474G5613G4448G1722G2575G2532G846G5456G5613G5456G4183G5204 16In His right hand He had seven stars; from His mouth came a sharp two-edged sword; and His face was shining like the sun at midday.G2532G2192G1722G846G1188G5495G2033G792G2532G1537G846G4750G1607G3691G1366G4501G2532G846G3799G5613G2246G5316G1722G846G1411 17When I saw Him, I fell at His feet like a dead man. He laid His right hand on me, and said, "Don't be afraid! I am the First and the Last,G2532G3753G1492G846G4098G4314G846G4228G5613G3498G2532G2007G846G1188G5495G1909G1691G3004G3427G5399G3361G1473G1510G4413G2532G2078 18and the Living One. I was dead, but look— I am alive forever and ever, and I hold the keys of death and Hades.G2532G2198G2532G1096G3498G2532G2400G1510G2198G1519G165G165G281G2532G2192G2807G86G2532G2288 19Therefore write what you have seen, what is, and what will take place after this.G1125G3739G1492G2532G3739G1526G2532G3739G3195G1096G3326G5023 20The secret of the seven stars you saw in My right hand, and of the seven gold lampstands, is this: the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.G3466G2033G792G3739G1492G1909G3450G1188G2532G2033G5552G3087G2033G792G1526G32G2033G1577G2532G2033G3087G3739G1492G1526G2033G1577
