Revelation 1

The Revelation of Jesus Christ

1The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show to His bond-servants, the things which must soon take place; and He sent and [a]communicated it by His angel to His bond-servant John, who testified to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that he saw. Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and [b]heed the things which are written in it; for the time is near.

Message to the Seven Churches

John to the seven churches that are in Asia: Grace to you and peace, from Him who is and who was and who [c]is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before His throne, and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and released us from our sins [d]by His blood— and He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to [e]His God and Father—to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. So it is to be. Amen.

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who [f]is to come, the Almighty.”

The Patmos Vision

I, John, your brother and fellow partaker in the tribulation and kingdom and [g]perseverance which are in Jesus, was on the island called Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus. 10 I was [h]in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like the sound of a trumpet, 11 saying, “Write in a [i]book what you see, and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea.”

12 Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands; 13 and in the middle of the lampstands I saw one like [j]a son of man, clothed in a robe reaching to the feet, and girded across His chest with a golden sash. 14 His head and His hair were white like white wool, like snow; and His eyes were like a flame of fire. 15 His feet were like burnished bronze, when it has been made to glow in a furnace, and His voice was like the sound of many waters. 16 In His right hand He held seven stars, and out of His mouth came a sharp two-edged sword; and His face was like the sun [k]shining in its strength.

17 When I saw Him, I fell at His feet like a dead man. And He placed His right hand on me, saying, “Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, 18 and the living One; and I [l]was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades. 19 Therefore write the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which will take place after these things. 20 As for the mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand, and the seven golden lampstands: the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.

Okubikkulirwa 1

Ennyanjula

1Okubikkulirwa kwa Yesu Kristo, Katonda kwe yamuwa okulaga abaddu be ebyo ebiteekwa okubaawo amangu. Kristo yakimanyisa ng’atuma malayika we eri omuweereza we Yokaana eyategeeza ekigambo kya Katonda n’obujulirwa bwa Yesu Kristo ku byonna bye yalaba. Alina omukisa oyo asoma n’abo abawulira ebigamb MAT - Mathayo o by’obunnabbi buno, ne beekuuma ebiwandiikiddwa, kubanga ekiseera kiri kiweddeyo.

Okulamusa n’Okutendereza Mukama

Nze Yokaana mpandiikira Ekkanisa omusanvu eziri mu Asiya.

Mbagaliza ekisa n’emirembe ebiva eri Katonda oyo aliwo, era eyaliwo era alibaawo; n’ebiva eri emyoyo omusanvu egiri mu maaso g’entebe ye ey’obwakabaka,[a] era n’okuva eri Yesu Kristo omujulirwa omwesigwa. Oyo ye yasooka okuzuukira mu bafu, era y’afuga bakabaka ab’omu nsi; oyo yatwagala, era ye yatuggya mu bibi byaffe n’omusaayi gwe, n’atufuula obwakabaka bw’obwakabona bwa Katonda, Kitaawe. Ekitiibwa n’obuyinza bibeerenga eri oyo emirembe n’emirembe. Amiina.

Laba, ajja n’ebire,
    na buli liiso lirimulaba,
n’abaamufumita balimulaba,
    era n’amawanga gonna ku nsi galimukungubagira.
Weewaawo. Amiina!

“Nze Alufa ne Omega,”[b] bw’ayogera Mukama Katonda, “oyo aliwo, eyabaawo era alikomawo, Ayinzabyonna.”

Oyo eyali ng’Omwana w’Omuntu

Nze muganda wammwe Yokaana, abonaabonera awamu nammwe mu bwakabaka ne mu kugumiikiriza ebiri mu Yesu, nnali ku kizinga ekiyitibwa Patumo, olw’ekigambo kya Katonda era n’okujulira ebya Yesu. 10 Nnali mu mwoyo ku lunaku lwa Mukama waffe,[c] ne mpulira eddoboozi ery’omwanguka emabega wange, eryavuga ng’ery’akagombe, 11 nga ligamba nti, “By’olaba, biwandiike mu kitabo, okiweereze eri Ekkanisa omusanvu: Ekkanisa ey’omu Efeso, n’ey’omu Sumuna, n’ey’omu Perugamo, n’ey’omu Suwatira, n’ey’omu Saadi, n’ey’omu Firaderufiya n’ey’omu Lawodikiya.”

12 Ne nkyuka okulaba eyali ayogera nange, ne ndaba ebikondo by’ettaala ebya zaabu musanvu. 13 Era wakati mu byo ne ndabamu omuntu “eyali ng’Omwana w’Omuntu” eyali ayambadde ekyambalo ekiwanvu ekikoma ku bigere, nga yeesibye mu kifuba olukoba olwa zaabu. 14 Omutwe gwe n’enviiri ze byali byeru ng’ebyoya by’endiga ebyeru, era nga bifaanana ng’omuzira, n’amaaso ge nga gali ng’ennimi z’omuliro. 15 Ebigere bye byali ng’ekikomo ekizigule ekyakaayakana mu muliro n’eddoboozi lye nga liyira ng’amazzi amangi. 16 Yali akutte emmunyeenye musanvu mu mukono gwe ogwa ddyo era ng’alina ekitala ekyogi eky’obwogi obubiri[d] mu kamwa ke; n’ekyenyi kye nga kiri ng’enjuba eyakaayakana mu maanyi gaayo.

17 Bwe namulaba, ne ngwa wansi ku bigere bye ne mba ng’afudde, kyokka ye n’anteekako omukono gwe ogwa ddyo n’aŋŋamba nti, “Totya. Nze Owoolubereberye era Owenkomerero, 18 era omulamu. Nnali nfudde naye kaakano ndi mulamu emirembe gyonna, era nnina ebisumuluzo eby’okufa n’amagombe.

19 “Kale wandiika ebyo by’olabye ebiriwo n’ebyo ebinaatera okubaawo oluvannyuma lw’ebyo ebiriwo. 20 Ka nkubuulire amakulu g’emmunyeenye omusanvu z’olabye mu mukono gwange ogwa ddyo, era n’ebikondo eby’ettaala ebya zaabu omusanvu. Emmunyeenye omusanvu be bamalayika b’Ekkanisa omusanvu, ate ebikondo by’ettaala eza zaabu omusanvu ze Kkanisa omusanvu.”
