A Vision of Christ

9I am John, your brother, and as a follower of Jesus I am your partner in patiently enduring the suffering that comes to those who belong to his Kingdom. I was put on the island of Patmos because I had proclaimed God's word and the truth that Jesus revealed.G1473G2491G3588G2532G5216G80G2532G4791G1722G2347G2532G1722G932G2532G5281G2424G5547G1096G1722G3520G2564G3963G1223G3056G2316G2532G1223G3141G2424G5547 10On the Lord's day the Spirit took control of me, and I heard a loud voice, that sounded like a trumpet, speaking behind me.G1096G1722G4151G1722G2960G2250G2532G191G3694G3450G3173G5456G5613G4536 11It said, "Write down what you see, and send the book to the churches in these seven cities: Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea."G3004G1473G1510G1G2532G5598G4413G2532G2078G2532G3739G991G1125G1519G975G2532G3992G2033G1577G3588G1722G773G1519G2181G2532G1519G4667G2532G1519G4010G2532G1519G2363G2532G1519G4554G2532G1519G5359G2532G1519G2993 12I turned around to see who was talking to me, and I saw seven gold lampstands,G2532G1994G991G5456G3748G2980G3326G1700G2532G1994G1492G2033G5552G3087 13and among them there was what looked like a human being, wearing a robe that reached to his feet, and a gold band around his chest.G2532G1722G3319G2033G3087G3664G5207G444G1746G4158G2532G4024G4314G3149G5552G2223 14His hair was white as wool, or as snow, and his eyes blazed like fire;G1161G846G2776G2532G2359G3022G5616G2053G3022G5613G5510G2532G846G3788G5613G5395G4442 15his feet shone like brass that has been refined and polished, and his voice sounded like a roaring waterfall.G2532G846G4228G3664G5474G5613G4448G1722G2575G2532G846G5456G5613G5456G4183G5204 16He held seven stars in his right hand, and a sharp two-edged sword came out of his mouth. His face was as bright as the midday sun.G2532G2192G1722G846G1188G5495G2033G792G2532G1537G846G4750G1607G3691G1366G4501G2532G846G3799G5613G2246G5316G1722G846G1411 17When I saw him, I fell down at his feet like a dead man. He placed 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 was dead, but now I am alive forever and ever. I have authority over death and the world of the dead.G2532G2198G2532G1096G3498G2532G2400G1510G2198G1519G165G165G281G2532G2192G2807G86G2532G2288 19Write, then, the things you see, both the things that are now and the things that will happen afterward.G1125G3739G1492G2532G3739G1526G2532G3739G3195G1096G3326G5023 20Here is the secret meaning of the seven stars that you see in my right hand, and of the seven gold lampstands: the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.G3466G2033G792G3739G1492G1909G3450G1188G2532G2033G5552G3087G2033G792G1526G32G2033G1577G2532G2033G3087G3739G1492G1526G2033G1577
