John’s Vision of Christ

9I, John, your brother and companion in the suffering and kingdom and patient endurance that are ours in Jesus, was on the island of Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus.G1473G2491G3588G2532G5216G80G2532G4791G1722G2347G2532G1722G932G2532G5281G2424G5547G1096G1722G3520G2564G3963G1223G3056G2316G2532G1223G3141G2424G5547 10On the Lord's Day I was in the Spirit, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet,G1096G1722G4151G1722G2960G2250G2532G191G3694G3450G3173G5456G5613G4536 11which said: "Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea."G3004G1473G1510G1G2532G5598G4413G2532G2078G2532G3739G991G1125G1519G975G2532G3992G2033G1577G3588G1722G773G1519G2181G2532G1519G4667G2532G1519G4010G2532G1519G2363G2532G1519G4554G2532G1519G5359G2532G1519G2993 12I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lampstands,G2532G1994G991G5456G3748G2980G3326G1700G2532G1994G1492G2033G5552G3087 13and among the lampstands was someone "like a son of man," dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest.G2532G1722G3319G2033G3087G3664G5207G444G1746G4158G2532G4024G4314G3149G5552G2223 14His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire.G1161G846G2776G2532G2359G3022G5616G2053G3022G5613G5510G2532G846G3788G5613G5395G4442 15His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters.G2532G846G4228G3664G5474G5613G4448G1722G2575G2532G846G5456G5613G5456G4183G5204 16In his right hand he held seven stars, and out of his mouth came a sharp double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.G2532G2192G1722G846G1188G5495G2033G792G2532G1537G846G4750G1607G3691G1366G4501G2532G846G3799G5613G2246G5316G1722G846G1411 17When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: "Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last.G2532G3753G1492G846G4098G4314G846G4228G5613G3498G2532G2007G846G1188G5495G1909G1691G3004G3427G5399G3361G1473G1510G4413G2532G2078 18I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.G2532G2198G2532G1096G3498G2532G2400G1510G2198G1519G165G165G281G2532G2192G2807G86G2532G2288 19"Write, therefore, what you have seen, what is now and what will take place later.G1125G3739G1492G2532G3739G1526G2532G3739G3195G1096G3326G5023 20The mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand and of the seven golden lampstands is this: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.G3466G2033G792G3739G1492G1909G3450G1188G2532G2033G5552G3087G2033G792G1526G32G2033G1577G2532G2033G3087G3739G1492G1526G2033G1577
