Bible: Revelation 1:10-20
1:12 I 6 turned to see whose voice was speaking to me, 7 and when I did so, 8 I saw seven golden lampstands, 1:13 and in the midst of the lampstands was one like a son of man. 9 He was dressed in a robe extending down to his feet and he wore a wide golden belt 10 around his chest. 1:14 His 11 head and hair were as white as wool, even as white as snow, 12 and his eyes were like a fiery 13 flame. 1:15 His feet were like polished bronze 14 refined 15 in a furnace, and his voice was like the roar 16 of many waters. 1:16 He held 17 seven stars in his right hand, and a sharp double-edged sword extended out of his mouth. His 18 face shone like the sun shining at full strength. 1:17 When 19 I saw him I fell down at his feet as though I were dead, but 20 he placed his right hand on me and said: “Do not be afraid! I am the first and the last, 1:18 and the one who lives! I 21 was dead, but look, now I am alive – forever and ever – and I hold the keys of death and of Hades! 22 1:19 Therefore write what you saw, what is, and what will be after these things. 23 1:20 The mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand and the seven golden lampstands is this: 24 The seven stars are the angels 25 of the seven churches and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.
