This is a revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his
servants the events that must soon take place. He sent an angel to p resent
this revelation to his servant John, who faithfully reported everything
he saw. This is his report of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus
God blesses the one who reads the words of this prophecy to the church,
and he blesses all who listen to its message and obey what it says, for the
time is near.
This letter is from John to the seven churches in the province of Asia.
Grace and peace to you from the one who is, who always was, and who is
still to come; from the sevenfold Spirit before his throne; and from Jesus
Christ. He is the faithful witness to these things, the first to rise from the
dead, and the ruler of all the kings of the world.
All glory to him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by shedding
his blood for us. He has made us a Kingdom of priests for God his Father.
All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen.
Look! He comes with the clouds of heaven.
And everyone will see him—
even those who pierced him.
And all the nations of the world
will mourn for him.
“I am the Alpha and the Omega—the beginning and the end,” says
the Lord God. “I am the one who is, who always was, and who is still to
come—the Almighty One.”
