His Eyes Pouring Fire-Blaze

4I, John, am writing this to the seven churches in Asia province: All the best to you from THE GOD WHO IS, THE GOD WHO WAS, AND THE GOD ABOUT TO ARRIVE, and from the Seven Spirits assembled before his throne,G2491G2033G1577G3588G1722G773G5485G5213G2532G1515G575G3588G5607G3801G2532G3588G2258G3801G2532G3588G2064G3801G2532G575G2033G4151G3739G2076G1799G846G2362 5and from Jesus Christ—Loyal Witness, Firstborn from the dead, Ruler of all earthly kings.

Oh, Yes.G2400G2064G3326G3507G2532G3956G3788G3700G846G2532G3748G1574G846G2532G3956G5443G1093G2875G1909G846G3483G281 8The Master declares, "I'm A to Z.

I heard a loud voice behind me, trumpet-clear and piercing:G1096G1722G4151G1722G2960G2250G2532G191G3694G3450G3173G5456G5613G4536 11"Write what you see into a book. Send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, Laodicea."G3004G1473G1510G1G2532G5598G4413G2532G2078G2532G3739G991G1125G1519G975G2532G3992G2033G1577G3588G1722G773G1519G2181G2532G1519G4667G2532G1519G4010G2532G1519G2363G2532G1519G4554G2532G1519G5359G2532G1519G2993 12I turned and saw the voice. I saw a gold menorah with seven branches,G2532G1994G991G5456G3748G2980G3326G1700G2532G1994G1492G2033G5552G3087 13And in the center, the Son of Man, in a robe and gold breastplate,G2532G1722G3319G2033G3087G3664G5207G444G1746G4158G2532G4024G4314G3149G5552G2223 14hair a blizzard of white, Eyes pouring fire-blaze,G1161G846G2776G2532G2359G3022G5616G2053G3022G5613G5510G2532G846G3788G5613G5395G4442 15both feet furnace-fired bronze, His voice a cataract,G2532G846G4228G3664G5474G5613G4448G1722G2575G2532G846G5456G5613G5456G4183G5204 16right hand holding the Seven Stars, His mouth a sharp-biting sword, his face a perigee sun.G2532G2192G1722G846G1188G5495G2033G792G2532G1537G846G4750G1607G3691G1366G4501G2532G846G3799G5613G2246G5316G1722G846G1411 17I saw this and fainted dead at his feet. His right hand pulled me upright, his voice reassured me: "Don't fear: I am First, I am Last,G2532G3753G1492G846G4098G4314G846G4228G5613G3498G2532G2007G846G1188G5495G1909G1691G3004G3427G5399G3361G1473G1510G4413G2532G2078 18I'm Alive. I died, but I came to life, and my life is now forever. See these keys in my hand? They open and lock Death's doors, they open and lock Hell's gates.G2532G2198G2532G1096G3498G2532G2400G1510G2198G1519G165G165G281G2532G2192G2807G86G2532G2288 19Now write down everything you see: things that are, things about to be.G1125G3739G1492G2532G3739G1526G2532G3739G3195G1096G3326G5023 20The Seven Stars you saw in my right hand and the seven-branched gold menorah—do you want to know what's behind them? The Seven Stars are the Angels of the seven churches; the menorah's seven branches are the seven churches."G3466G2033G792G3739G1492G1909G3450G1188G2532G2033G5552G3087G2033G792G1526G32G2033G1577G2532G2033G3087G3739G1492G1526G2033G1577
