Bible: Rev 1:4-7

1:4 From John, 1  to the seven churches that are in the province of Asia: 2  Grace and peace to you 3  from “he who is,” 4  and who was, and who is still to come, 5  and from the seven spirits who are before his throne, 1:5 and from Jesus Christ – the faithful 6  witness, 7  the firstborn from among the dead, the ruler over the kings of the earth. To the one who loves us and has set us free 8  from our sins at the cost of 9  his own blood 1:6 and has appointed 10  us as a kingdom, 11  as priests 12  serving his God and Fatherto him be the glory and the power for ever and ever! 13  Amen.

1:7 (Look! He is returning with the clouds, 14 

and every eye will see him,

even 15  those who pierced him, 16 

and all the tribes 17  on the earth will mourn because 18  of him.

This will certainly come to pass! 19  Amen.) 20
