Revelation 1

1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:

2 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.

3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;

5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

9 I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,

11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;

13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.

14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;

15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.

16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.

17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:

18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

19 Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;

20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.

  1. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. (‭Revelation‬ ‭1‬:‭8‬ KJV)

    Glory to GOD!!!

    For HE IS
    KING IF KINGS
    AND
    LORD OF LORDS

  2. Verse 8 CEV “The Lord God says, “I am Alpha and Omega,[c] the one who is and was and is coming. I am God All-Powerful!” The caption under this verse says “A Vision of the Risen Lord”. This reminds me of the song we sing “Who is the King of Glory?” In Psalm 24:8 AMP it says ” Who is the King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.”

    Verse 8 MSG “The Master declares, “I’m A to Z. I’m The God Who Is, The God Who Was, and The God About to Arrive. I’m the Sovereign-Strong.” There is one God and his name is Jesus. Deuteronomy 6:4 AMP “Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God is one Lord [the only Lord].”

    Proof that Jesus is Father, Son, and Holy Ghost

    7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

    8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

    Jesus is the one who was pierced and therefore when it describes he who is, who was, and who is to come the Word is describing the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost .

    He who is=Holy Ghost (Spirit of Christ)
    He who was =Father (Creator)
    He who is to come=Jesus (Son)

    Jesus is Father, Son, and Spirit

    the one who is, was, and is to come! Boom!🔥

  4. 7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

    The Lord is coming and every eye shall see him, we must be ready because we know not the day nor the hour our Lord is returning. Many will wail and others will rejoice, what we do will be up to us, will we be ready to meet God.

  5. 18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

    How mighty is our God! He conquered death, hell, and the grave – hallelujah! The best news is that because He lives and is victorious, that means we are too!

    I’m alive because You’re alive!
    I have joy because You’re alive!
    I am free because You’re alive!
    More abundantly, I’m alive!

  6. Serve joyfully and walk in the spirit

    Revelation 1:1 (NASB)
    ​1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show to His bond-servants, the things which must soon take place; and He sent and communicated it by His angel to His bond-servant John,

    Revelation 1:10 (NASB Strong’s)
    10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like the sound of a trumpet,

    We might look at John and boldly proclaim our desire to witness such amazing things as well. How would wonderful to see the end of days, the kingdom of heaven, the defeat of the enemy, and the beginnings of the new earth.

    It seems there are two major requirements to view such spectacular things, or perhaps these things must be active in our lives to be chosen for such things.

    1. Bond-servant
    This is one who chooses to serve his master out of love. He diligently waits on him and can’t wait to do the next thing. A bond-servant is characterized by their willing and joyful attitude. They get to serve.

    2. In the spirit
    We are told those who are lead by the spirit are the sons of God. We walk after the spirit and Not after the flesh. We put our carnality to the side and remain sensitive to his spirit and his presence.

    These two things accomplished results in more than just visions. This results in God using us tremendously. Why?

    Jesus was a bond-servant and he showed us how to walk in the spirit.

  7. “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.” (‭Revelation‬ ‭1‬:‭8‬ NLT)

    There is no God like our God! He is the creator of all things! He has all power and his will happens freely. He is the first and the last. He was since the beginning and he is still is. Our Godnis Great!

  8. 3. Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

    Need a blessing? Read, hear and obey the Word of God! Time is running out and it will be too late; do it now.

  9. What a blessed people we at POFW are!!

    3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

    I have attended three churches in my life time. At the time of attendance I thought it could not get any better than where I was. However, that is not the case. Each move has brought me closer to the Lord through higher learning and greater responsibility and accountability. POFW is abundantly blessed with our Pastor and his passion, creativeness and ability to inspire others to stretch themselves into areas they maybe never imagined being involved in. Add to this the mighty men of God amongst the congregation; elders, ministry staff, leadership staff and volunteers. Is that enough; no, POFW takes it further by aligning us with preachers, teachers, evangelists, profits and apostles that compare to no other congregation on earth.

    Think about that a moment. There is no other church or congregation that has the same group of people. The combination of friendships and acquaintances with our Pastor creates a one-of-a-kind experience that can only be found at POFW.

    What a blessed people we at POFW are!!

  10. Revelation 1:10
    I was in the spirit on the Lord’s day and heard behind me a great voice as of a trumpet.
    We know that wensday and Sunday’s are the lords day for the spirit of the lord we will hear a voice of praise and a loud trumpet too. AMEN

  11. 3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

    Reading the bible, listening to the spoken word of God, and living a holy lifestyle isn’t a chore, it’s a blessing!

  12. I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet

    Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking to me, and on turning I saw seven golden lampstands, (‭Revelation‬ ‭1‬:‭10, 12‬ ESV)

    The Voice

    I want to hear the voice of my Father. There are so many voices that try to distract us. If we remain in the Spirit of the Lord it will drowned out the other voices. We will hear the voice of Our Father. 

  13. MORE JESUS

    8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

    17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:
    18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

    JESUS in HIS Revelation to John, identified himself as GOD. Again, affirming the fact that HE IS the ONE GOD that manifest himself in 3 dimensions. Father (which was), Son (which is) and Holy Ghost (which is to come). HE alone is the ALMIGHTY. I seek MORE JESUS.

    HE is the FIRST and the LAST. He controls the beginning and ending of ALL things. There was no baton of authority passed from the Father to the Son or the Holy Ghost.

    He LIVETH (Father), HE was dead (Son), and behold HE is ALIVE forevermore (Holy Ghost) Amen.

    HE alone holds the keys of hell and death. This is great reason to seek MORE JESUS. He is the keys to hell and death and will eternally lock up all transgressors of HIS WORD. I seek, want, and need MORE JESUS.

    iRepent
    iPraise
    iPray
    iWork
    iGive
    iReap

  14. 3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

    The time is near so it is very important to take the words of this verse seriously and obey Jesus.

  15. 8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
    God is awesome and he was there in the beginning and he will be there in the end. He is the creator of the world and the almighty. When He comes back everybody will bow to him even those who crucified him. Were Glad to be serving the all powerful God!

  16. Bare witness

    What was it? A revelation
    Who gave it? God
    Who did God give it to? John
    Who was the revelation for? Servants

    It’s amazing how God may give a revelation to one vessel but it’s intent is for all servants.

    1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:

    2 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.

    3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

    Not only do we get to partake in the personal time that John had with God but verse 3 says we are blessed because we read it and obey it.

    There are times that God shows us things in our private moments with Him that He desires for us to share with others that they too can be blessed. He stop the flow the blessings and the victory of others when we do not share those experiences.

    “Testify” is the word of the day! Your testimony helps others share in the blessings of joy!

  17. 7 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. Yes! Amen! (NLT)

    Everyone will see Him, even the ones that are “hiding” from Him. There is a day coming when we will ALL see Him!

  18. 7 Riding the clouds, he’ll be seen by every eye, those who mocked and killed him will see him, People from all nations and all times will tear their clothes in lament. Oh, Yes.

    8 The Master declares, “I’m A to Z. I’m The God Who Is, The God Who Was, and The God About to Arrive. I’m the Sovereign-Strong.” MSG
    This chapter reminds me of the song by the McGruders:

    Verse 1:If you don’t want to miss the Lord’s appearing on that morning when the dead in Christ will rise. Then make your preperation. Secure your souls salvation. And keep your eyes upon the eastern sky.

    Chorus:See those clouds. Their the ones He’s coming back in. From the east when Christ returns to Earth again. See those clouds. Their the ones will join the saints. On that morning when eternity begins.

    Verse 2:In the twinkling of an eye twill all be over. Then my friend it will be too late to pray. Be sure the time is nearing. The hour of His appearing. When the bridegroom comes to take His bride away.

    I am not sure about the last part of the 3rd line of the chorus but I hope this helps someone! God bless!

  19. 10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,

    11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

    I already understood how the Word of God was written by man by the influence of the Holy Ghost, but this allows us to truly understand one of the ways God spoke to man.
    It also amazes me that Revelations was send to the churches in Asia.

  20. 3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand

    6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

    Not only when we read His Word, hear His Word, but keep His Word in Our hearts and do what He instructs us to do we are blessed. We are blessed so much that we become royalty which means that we have power and dominion over anything on this earth! Wow that totally destroys the devils plan in having us think that we are alone and are nobodies and can’t do anything. Take that devil! We are ROYALTY!! MORE FOUR40!

  21. My daddy kept a notebook by his bed so when he woke up he will write down his dream and see if there were any correlation within one and the other. When I was in college for mechanical engineer they used to tell us to keep a notebook by our bed for the craziest ideas come in the middle of the night. I have been writing a blog about my journey with cancer https://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=845982249669375896#overview/src=dashboard
    That’s my blog I have neglected it for a while haven’t posted since February LOL. Not because I have no time but because reality is a tough thing to face. Pride, needing help, and Lords knows I am trying. I lot of my Bro. and Sis. will also understand if they were to read them. LOL. Ok less bout me more of HIM that is what is all about.

    19 Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;

    Write, please write, young, old, we all have something to share, something that will make another person say “they made it why” and then they will see it cause we have made it because Christ is our Lord and Savior. So write, go write right now anything and everything in Jesus Name. You don’t want to miss today’s blog. For I heard my Christ loud and Clear.

  22. 3, “Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things written therein: for the time is at hand.” (KJV)
    3, “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.” (NLT)

    God BLESSES Pastor/Ministers who read and teach the Word of God to us. He also will BLESS us if we hear (listen) and keep (obey) the Word of God that is being read and taught to us.

    MORE Reading and Teaching!
    MORE Hearing!
    MORE Obeying!
    MORE BLESSINGS!!

  23. 7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

    10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,

    Every eye shall see him, and every ear shall hear him! Some will rejoice, and some will weep. It is up to us to prepare our hearts and minds, and to obey the word of God, so that we may be with the rejoicing people!!

  24. 10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,

    11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

    12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;

    Everyday is “the Lord’s day”. We just be listening and following the leading of His Spirit everyday to hear what He is speaking to us. Maybe a warning, maybe declaration of Victory, no matter what He is saying, our ears must be open.

    He that an ear let Him hear what the Spirit is saying……..

  25. Revelations Chapter 1

    This prophecy is traditionally dated to about 95 to 96 A.D. It has been argued that it was written as late as the 300’s but an ancient piece of the text was found to date 135 A.D. and suspected to be a 2nd or 3rd generation copy. This silent the extreme “late date” advocates. Many have argued that it was written during the persecution of Nero around 64 A.D. While the traditional dating has been challenged, it has withstood scholarly scrutiny and the majority consensus dates it at 95/96 A.D. toward the end of Emperor Domitian.

    When reading this, we must understand that the Apostles thought Jesus was going to return in their lifetime. The delay of the return seemed to be a fluke. John’s writings seem to address the growing concern that Jesus may not ever come back. If we approach the text like this, we can see the text through the eyes of the original readers. This text gives its readers hope of an established kingdom after persecution. It is an encouragement to hold on to the faith.

    The first chapter introduces John as the author. He uses the term “servant of God,” which was often used by OT prophets. His introduction of himself is not explain throughly suggesting that his authority of the seven churches was already establish and perhaps his readers knew who he was. This is suggestive that he actually wrote the vision, and it wasn’t written by someone else using his name.

    John has his first vision which represents judgement coming to the seven churches. Verses 2:1-3:22 will address these churches and address a central theme: apostasy – the abandonment of renunciation of faith.

  26. John introduces his book as a revelation given to him by Jesus and pronounces a special blesing on those who read hear and take to heart the woeds of this prophecy . The book is sent to the seven Asian chueches which John has special ties and is dedicated to Jesus as coming Saviour.

  27. 3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

    Hallelujah! Thank You Jesus! I am blessed because I keep all the prophecies that have been said to me. I have never experienced anything like this till I came to this church. I used to believe prophecies, miracles, and wonders were things for back in the days. But I sure was wrong…Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and tommorow you just have to believe 🙂 I grateful and blessed to be part of a church that has gotten prophecied so many times 🙂 Fort Worth here we come The POFW “Impacting Lives”

  28. 9 I, John, am your brother and your partner in suffering and in God’s Kingdom and in the patient endurance to which Jesus calls us. I was exiled to the island of Patmos for preaching the word of God and for my testimony about Jesus.

    John is telling us, he is part of the body of Christ. When he suffers, all other members suffer with him. We all work in as one, in unity. When one part of the ministry suffers, other parts will suffer also. We suffer, we pray, we worship at one!

  29. “Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.” The deceiver (satan) is doing all he can to twist and corrupt so that he can take as many souls as possible with him, as he knows his time is short. One should thank God (Jesus) for a man of God that encourages one to read the word of God. One should also thank God for a man of God that is not an ear tickler, but a preacher/teacher of what sayeth the word of God. Dear God, help me to clearly hear and obey; “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done”. In God we trust! What a mighty God we serve! Thank God for his word. God bless America, Jerusalem, and you all in Jesus name, Amen!

  30. 18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

    He is Gid almighty. He is the one hat liveth forever. He has the keys to hell and the grave. He is my provider. He is my king.

    More of Him.
    More 440

  31. 7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

    What a great and terrible day his return will be: to those watching and waiting it will be a great day; but for those who pierced him it will be a terrible one. I can’t wait to see him face to face and look at the one who died for me so that I could be free from the law of sin and death. It is also time to reach for all those we can.

  32. 17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:

    One day every knee shall bow…

  33. 18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

    It reminds me of the song “the devil is under my feet”. My God is an awesome God. The enemy has authority to bring death to any one. God is the only that has the power to take and give life. And because He lives, we have life, More Abundantly!

  34. 5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

    6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

  35. Alpha, is the first letter of the Greek alphabet, and omega, the last are used in v8 to signify God’s authority over all creation and history. From the beginning to the end, the first to last, he is the ruler of all- the One “who is, who was and who is to come” (vs4). Everything that we know of, and all that we don’t, all exist “from him and through him and to him” (Ro 11:36). Everything God gives to us will return back to him. What has he given us that we could be thankful for? Family? Home? Work? Health? Friends? Ultimately, God created and controls all that we treasure, all the things and people we are thankful for. God is the source of each one. We can take comfort in knowing that he is in charge at this very moment, that he always has been and always will be. We can praise him and give him glory for his mighty works that we enjoy everyday. He is coming back and everyone will see him, even those who pierced him. Whe have to take care of what things and people God has placed in our care. When we lay our control we allow Him to be Alpha and Omega in our lives. Without him we wouldn’t have any of it.

  36. 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. (‭Revelation‬ ‭1‬:‭3‬ NLT)

    Don’t be afraid to share the word of God to anyone. He blesses the people who stand up and declare truth in a lying, manipulative world. Without the messengers there are no listeners. Everyone needs to hear this message! Don’t hold back, share what you have learned

  37. 17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:

    There is only one God I serve, there is no other like him. Have no fear, give God the glory for everything.

  38. v1″ The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass;”

    One would be wise to consistently take inventory of his life to ensure that his or her is in alignment with the will and plan of God.
    We must be ready that all times.

  39. Angels are assigned, and let the seven churches shine brightly for Jesus Christ…….

    20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.

    So many mysterious things are in the word, but our God still takes time out to explain to us and sometimes even then it’s hard understand it all.

    “God Bless”………In Jesus name, Amen…….

  40. God almighty I come to you today father humble before you, for I ask humbly please forgive me lord,for the things I have done,for I don’t realize that I have done, for I know that in your eyes it’s wrong and you don’t accept it in your kingdom. I pray for the poor and and the sick and the children in the refugee camps,for I ask if you can put healing upon each and one of them for they suffer from, starvation and dehydration. I also pray for the people that have died in the earthquake for some of them never knew that there was a creator name Jesus Christ for that they could of been saved by the almighty God Jesus Christ and I also pray for there family’s for that they lost love ones for thy loved very deeply I pray for healing and focus and comfort for the family’s in Jesus name amen !!!!

  41. 3 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.

    We need to be ready for when God comes back!

  42. I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I amalive for evermore, † Amen; and have the keys of hell and of Death

    Amen…It is interesting to know the definition and history of this universal word.  According to Strong’s, 

    firm
    metaph. faithful
    verily, amen
    at the beginning of a discourse – surely, truly, of a truth
    at the end – so it is, so be it, may it be fulfilled. It was a custom, which passed over from the synagogues to the Christian assemblies, that when he who had read or discoursed, had offered up solemn prayer to God, the others responded Amen, and thus made the substance of what was uttered their own.
    The word “amen” is a most remarkable word. It was transliterateddirectly from the Hebrew into the Greek of the New Testament, theninto Latin and into English and many other languages, so that it ispractically a universal word. It has been called the best known wordin human speech. The word is directly related — in fact, almostidentical — to the Hebrew word for “believe” (amam), or faithful.Thus, it came to mean “sure” or “truly”, an expression of absolutetrust and confidence. — HMM
    An expression of absolute confidence and trust.  An affirmation, may it be fulfilled, making it the substance of what was uttered their own.  This is why we respond amen to the Word being preached, why we end our prayers in amen.    

    He is alive forever and ever Amen!!
    To our Lord Jesus Christ be all honor, glory, dominion and power.  Amen! 

  43. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. (‭Revelation‬ ‭1‬:‭8‬ KJV)
    This is such a great thing to realize about Jesus. The first and the last. He always was asalways will be.

  44. 3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

    The time is getting closer and closer and so is the time to listen to what prophets are saying in our time.

  45. ALPHA & OMEGA !!!! 8. I am Al’-pha and O-me’-ga, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was to come, the Almighty. 11. Saying, I am Al’-pha and O-me’-ga, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in A’-sia; unto Eph’-e-sus, and unto Smyr’-na, and unto Per’-ga-mos, and unto Thy-a-ti’-ra, and unto Sar’-dis, and unto Phil-a-del’-phi-a, and unto La-od-I-ce’-a. 12. And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; Exod. 25 : 37; Rev. 1 : 20 13. And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. Ezek. 1 ; 26; Rev. 2 : 1 14. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15. And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. Ezek. 1 : 7; Rev. 2 : 18 16. And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. Isa. 49 : 2; Eph. 6 : 17 17. And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: 18. I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, A’-men; and have the keys of hell and of death. Ps. 68 : 20 19. Write the things, which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter; Rev. 1 : 12 20. The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches. Zech. 4 : 2 I EXALT YOU JESUS !!!! JESUS YOU ARE MY HOPE !!!!

  46. Revelations 1: 9-20
    While John was in the island of Patios, Jesus spokes to him and when he turn to hear to hear the voice, he saw a vision.

    Vision should always drive us leaders, specially when we know or believe they come from God.

    How do we know when it comes from God?

    It is NOT discovered or created, BUT REVEALED
    It DOESN’T compete with others, BUT COMPLETES others
    It is captivating, NOT optional, we CONNOT get it out of our minds
    Its fulfillment DOESN’T rest on staying ahead of others, but on SIMPLE OBEDIENCE
    Its PURPOSE is NOT to FEED MY EGO, BUT TO GLORIFY GOD!!!!
