The LORD is in his holy temple: let all the earth keep silence before him.
I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; 11 I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: then 12 I, John, saw seven golden candlesticks; 13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks the Son of man. his countenance was as the sun (glory) and his eyes were as a flame of fire(penetrated) out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: (words pierced)14 15 his voice - sound of many waters,(loud but calm and soothing) 18 These things saith the Son of God, -18 I am the bright morning star, I am that I am- alive – evermore.
When I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. He laid his right hand upon me, saying, Fear not; I have the keys of hell and of death. He that overcometh shall not be hurt - second death, - will- clothed - white raiment; - I - give - new name, - write upon him - name - my God and I will give - to eat - tree – life I am the first and the last: In his right hand he had seven stars, these are the angels of the seven churches (the messages they proclaim) 17the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches. (the candlesticks hold the light- we are the light of the world and the church holds/sheds light in a dark world- Stars shining for all to see – the light coming from holy Spirit-) What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches.
I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. Revelation 2:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and - chasten: 12 I have somewhat against thee, Jer 17:10 I have not found thy works perfect before God. thou hast left thy first love. (This is to all the churches?) thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. 2tim3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof 17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, in need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, (no peace) and poor, and blind, and naked:
I know thy works: 16 because - lukewarm, - neither cold nor hot, I will spue -out -my mouth. I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick(HS) except thou repent. Be zealous therefore, and repent. (Passionate) 195 Remember whence thou art fallen, repent, and do the first works11 7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches 15 Watch, pray and diligently seek the Lord, or I will come - as - thief, -you will not know - what hour I will come upon thee.
. 14 Blessed are they that do his commandments that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. Matt 7:14 But small is the gate and narrow the way that leads to life, and only a few find it. rejoice with joy - inexpressible and filled with glory, obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls.”
