The Book of Revelation Introduction
The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave
him to show to his bond-servants, the things
which must shortly take place and he sent and
communicated it by his angel to his bond-servant
John, who bore witness to the word of God and to
the testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that
he saw. Blessed is he who reads and those who
hear the words of the prophecy, and heed the
things which are written in it for the time is
near. John to the seven churches that are in
Asia . . .

The Book of Revelation Introduction
. . . I, John, your brother and fellow partaker
in the tribulation and kingdom and perseverance
which are in Jesus, was on the island called
Patmos, because of the word of God and the
testimony of Jesus. I was in the Spirit on the
Lords day, and I heard behind me a loud voice
like the sound of a trumpet, saying, Write in a
book what you see, and send it to the seven
churches to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to
Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to
Philadelphia and to Laodicea. (Revelation
11-4,9-11)

The Book of Revelation Introduction
. . . I saw seven golden lampstands and in the
middle of the lampstands one like a son of man,
clothed in a robe reaching to the feet, and
girded across his breast with a golden girdle.
And his head and his hair were white like white
wool, like snow and his eyes were like a flame
of fire and his feet were like burnished bronze,
when it has been caused to glow in a furnace, and
his voice was like the sound of many waters . .

. . . And in his right hand he held seven stars
and out of his mouth came a sharp two-edged
sword and his face was like the sun shining in
its strength. And when I saw him, I fell at his
feet as a dead man. And he laid his right hand
upon me, saying, Do not be afraid I am the
first and the last, and the living One and I was
dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I
have the keys of death and of Hades.
