Bible: Revelation 1:11-20
1:12 I 3 turned to see whose voice was speaking to me, 4 and when I did so, 5 I saw seven golden lampstands, 1:13 and in the midst of the lampstands was one like a son of man. 6 He was dressed in a robe extending down to his feet and he wore a wide golden belt 7 around his chest. 1:14 His 8 head and hair were as white as wool, even as white as snow, 9 and his eyes were like a fiery 10 flame. 1:15 His feet were like polished bronze 11 refined 12 in a furnace, and his voice was like the roar 13 of many waters. 1:16 He held 14 seven stars in his right hand, and a sharp double-edged sword extended out of his mouth. His 15 face shone like the sun shining at full strength. 1:17 When 16 I saw him I fell down at his feet as though I were dead, but 17 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 18 was dead, but look, now I am alive – forever and ever – and I hold the keys of death and of Hades! 19 1:19 Therefore write what you saw, what is, and what will be after these things. 20 1:20 The mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand and the seven golden lampstands is this: 21 The seven stars are the angels 22 of the seven churches and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.
