Knijga O Kristu

Otkrivenje 1

Ivan izvješćuje o Božjoj riječi i svjedočanstvu Isusa Krista - o svemu što je vidio.

Blago onome koji čita ovo proroštvo i onima koji slušaju njegove riječi te vrše što je u njemu napisano. Jer vrijeme kad će se ono ispuniti je blizu.

Ivan pozdravlja sedam crkava

Ovo pismo piše Ivan sedmerim crkvama u Maloj Aziji. Neka vam je milost i mir od onoga koji jest, koji je oduvijek bio i koji će doći; od sedam duhova pred njegovim prijestoljem

te od Isusa Krista koji vjerno svjedoči o tomu, koji je prvi ustao od mrtvih i vladar je nad svim zemaljskim kraljevima.Neka je slava njemu koji nas ljubi i koji nas je oslobodio od grijeha prolivši za nas svoju krv.

Učinio nas je kraljevstvom i svećenstvom Boga, svojega Oca. Neka mu je slava i vlast uvijeke! On vlada zauvijek. Amen.

Gle! On dolazi s oblacima nebeskim. I vidjet će ga svi, čak i oni koji su ga proboli. Svi će narodi na zemlji proplakati zbog njega. Da. Amen.

'Ja sam Alfa i Omega, Početak i Svršetak

Viđenje Sina Čovječjega

Ja, Ivan, vaš brat, kao i vi u Kristu sam dionik patnji i kraljevstva te postojanosti. Izgnan sam na otok Patmos zbog propovijedanja Božje riječi i svjedočenja o Isusu.

10 Bio je Dan Gospodnji. Ponio me Duh i odjednom sam iza sebe začuo glas snažan poput zvuka trublje.

11 'Zapiši što ti kažem

12 Okrenem se da vidim tko mi govori, ali ugledam sedam zlatnih svijećnjaka,

13 a među svijećnjacima nekoga sličnog čovjeku.[a] Bio je odjeven u dugu haljinu, sa zlatnim pasom oko prsa.

14 Kosa mu je bila bijela poput bijele vune, poput snijega, oči kao ognjeni plamen,

15 noge sjajne poput mjedi u peći užarene, a glas poput šuma golemih morskih valova.

16 U desnoj je ruci držao sedam zvijezda, a u ustima oštar dvosjekli mač. Lice mu je blistalo poput Sunca u punome sjaju.

17 Kad sam ga opazio, pao sam do njegovih nogu kao mrtav. Ali on stavi na mene desnu ruku i reče mi: 'Ne boj se! Ja sam Prvi i Posljednji.

18 živ sam! Bio sam mrtav, ali živim zauvijek. Imam ključeve smrti i podzemlja.

19 Zapiši što si vidio: što se sada događa i što će se dogoditi poslije.

20 Evo što znače sedam zvijezda koje si vidio u mojoj desnoj ruci i sedam zlatnih svijećnjaka: sedam su zvijezda anđeli[b] sedam crkava, a sedam svijećnjaka sedam crkava.

King James Version

Revelation 1

1The 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:

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

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.

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;

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,

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

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.

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.

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.
