Revelation of Saint John

To all Brethren over the surface of Earth in the coming time of Easter and Pascal celebration. Let us praise the LORD, and gather in Love and forgiveness. 
(...) I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which has, 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 the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.
I was in the spirit on the Lord's day and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet. 
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 Smryna, and unto Pergamus, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia and unto Laodicea. 
And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven candlesticks;
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.
His head and his hair were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 
And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
And he had 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. 
And then I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, Fear not; I am the first and the last;
I am he that liveth, and was dead; and behold, I am alive for everymore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death;
Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;
The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars the angels of the seven churches; and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches. (...)
