Revelation 1:7-9 Living Bible (TLB)

See! He is arriving, surrounded by clouds; and every eye shall see him—yes, and those who pierced him.[a] And the nations will weep in sorrow and in terror when he comes. Yes! Amen! Let it be so!

“I am the A and the Z,[b] the Beginning and the Ending of all things,” says God, who is the Lord, the All Powerful One who is, and was, and is coming again!*

It is I, your brother John, a fellow sufferer for the Lord’s sake, who am writing this letter to you. I, too, have shared the patience Jesus gives, and we shall share his Kingdom!

I was on the island of Patmos, exiled there for preaching the Word of God and for telling what I knew about Jesus Christ.
