Revelation Chapter 1

Rev. 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ,1 which God gave to him, to show to His slaves things which must shortly take place; and He made it known through signs, sending it by His angel to His slave John;

Rev. 1:2 who bore witness to the Word of God, and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, and to all things that he saw.

Rev. 1:3 Blessed is he that reads, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is at hand.

Rev. 1:4 John to the seven Assemblies who are in Asia; grace to you, and peace, from Him who is, and who was, and who is to come; and from the seven Spirits who are before His throne;

Rev. 1:5 and from Jesus Christ, who is the Faithful Witness, and the Firstborn of the dead, and the Ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him that is loving us and having loosed us out of our sins in His own blood,

Rev. 1:6 and makes us a kingdom, priests to God and His Father; to Him be glory and dominion into the new covenant age. Amen.

Rev. 1:7 Behold, He comes with the cloud; and every eye will see Him, and also they who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the land will wail because of Him. Even so, Amen.

Rev. 1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the Ending, says the Lord, Who is, and Who was, and Who is coming, the Almighty.

Rev. 1:9 I John, who also am your brother, and companion in the tribulation, and in the kingdom and endurance of Jesus Christ, was on the isle that is called Patmos, for the Word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Rev. 1:10 I was in spirit on the Day of the Lord, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,

Rev. 1:11 saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last; and, what you see, write in a book, and send it to the seven Assemblies in Asia; to Ephesus, and to Smyrna, and to Pergamum, and to Thyatira, and to Sardis, and to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.

Rev. 1:12 So I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. And turning around, I saw seven golden lampstands;

Rev. 1:13 in the midst of the seven lampstands one like the Son of man, clothed with a robe down to the foot, and wrapped about the chest with a golden sash.

Rev. 1:14 His head and His hair are white like wool, as white as snow; and His eyes as a flame of fire;

Rev. 1:15 And His feet like polished bronze, as if they burned in a furnace; and His voice as the sound of many waters.

Rev. 1:16 And He had in His right hand seven stars; and out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword; and His countenance was as the sun shining in its strength.

Rev. 1:17 When I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, fear not; I am the first and the last;

Rev. 1:18 I am He that lives, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive into the New Covenant Age from the Old Covenant Age, Amen; and have the keys of Hades and of Death.

Rev. 1:19 Write the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which are about to be in the midst of these things;

Rev. 1:20 the mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand, and the seven golden lampstands. The seven stars are the messengers of the seven Assemblies; and the seven lampstands which you saw are the seven Assemblies.
