Behold, the Lord Lives!
Second Lesson: Revelation 1:4–8 (NIV 84)
4Grace and peace to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come,
and from the seven spirits before his throne, 5 and from Jesus Christ, who is
the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of
the earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood,
6and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve his God and Father—
to him be glory and power for ever and ever! Amen.
7Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those
who pierced him; and all the peoples of the earth will mourn because of him.
So shall it be! Amen.
“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was,
and who is to come, the Almighty.”
