2 Corinthians 5:21
“God made Him
who had no sin
to be sin for us,
so that in Him
we might become
the righteousness of God.”
“Each of the four living creatures
had six wings
and was covered with eyes all around,
even under his wings.
Day and night they never stop saying:
‘Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty,
and is to come.'”
“Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life,
as clear as crystal,
flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb
down the middle of the great street of the city.
On each side of the river stood the tree of life,
bearing twelve crops of fruit,
yielding its fruit every month.
And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.
No longer will there be any curse.
The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city,
and his servants will serve Him.
They will see His face,
and His name will be on their foreheads.
There will be no more night.
They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun,
for the Lord God will give them light.
And they will reign for ever and ever.”
John and the Angel
“The angel said to me,
‘These words are trustworthy and true.
The Lord, the God who inspires the prophets,
sent His angel to show His servants
the things that must soon take place.’
‘Look, I am coming soon!
Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy written in this scroll.’
am the one who heard and saw these things.
And when I had heard and seen them,
I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel
who had been showing them to me.
But he said to me,
‘Don’t do that!
I am a fellow servant with you
and with your fellow prophets
and with all who keep the words of this scroll.
Then he told me,
‘Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this scroll,
because the time is near.
Let the one who does wrong continue to do wrong;
let the vile person continue to be vile;
let the one who does right continue to do right;
and let the holy person continue to be holy.’
Epilogue: Invitation and Warning
‘Look, I am coming soon!
My reward is with Me,
and I will give to each person
according to what they have done.
I am the Alpha and the Omega,
the First and the Last,
the Beginning and the End.
Blessed are those who wash their robes,
that they may have the right to the tree of life
and may go through the gates into the city.
Outside are the dogs,
those who practice magic arts,
the sexually immoral,
and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
have sent My angel to give you this testimony for the churches.
I Am the Root
and the Offspring of David,
and the bright Morning Star.”
The Spirit and the bride say,
And let the one who hears say,
Let the one who is thirsty come;
and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.
I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll:
If anyone adds anything to them,
God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll.
And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy,
God will take away from that person
any share in the tree of life
and in the Holy City,
which are described in this scroll.
He who testifies to these things says,
‘Yes, I Am coming soon.
Come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of the Lord Jesus
be with God’s people.
