Who is the liar, but he that denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the Anti-Christ, he that denies the Father and the Son. Every one who denies the Son has not the Father either; he who confesses the Son has the Father also.

"And to the angel of the assembly in Laodicea write these things," saith the Amen, the Faithful and the True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: "I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I would you were cold or hot. So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I am about to spew you out of My mouth. read more.
Because you say, 'I am rich, and have gotten riches, and have need of nothing'; and do not know that you are the wretched one, and pitiable, and poor, and blind, and naked! I counsel you to buy of Me gold refined by fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness may not be made manifest; and eye-salve to anoint your eyes, that you may see! As many as I love, I reprove and chasten. Be zealous, therefore, and repent. "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock; if anyone hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me. He that overcomes, I will give to him to sit down with Me in My throne, as I also overcame, and sat down with My Father in His throne.

because the Son of Man, indeed, is going according as it has been determined; but woe to that man through whom He is betrayed!" And they began to inquire together among themselves, which of them it was, who was about to perpetrate this thing. And there arose also a contention among them as to which of them seemed to be greatest. read more.
But He said to them, "The kings of the gentiles exercise lordship over them; and those having authority over them are called 'Benefactors.' But ye are not so; but let the greater among you become as the younger, and he who leads as he who serves. For who is greater, he who reclines at table, or he who serves? Is not he who reclines? But I am in the midst of you as One Who serveth. But ye are they who have remained with Me in my temptations; and I appoint to you, as My Father appointed to Me, a Kingdom, that ye may eat and drink at My table in My Kingdom; and ye shall sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

"And to the angel of the assembly in Thyatira write these things." saith the Son of God, Who hath His eyes as a flame of fire, and His feet like burnished brass: "I know your works, and your love, and faith, and ministry, and your patience; and your last works to be more than the first. But I have it against you, that you suffer the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess; and she teaches and seduces My servants to commit fornication, and to eat idol-sacrifices. read more.
And I gave her time, that she might repent; and she is not willing to repent of her fornication. Behold, I cast her into a bed, and those committing adultery with her, into great tribulation, if they repent not of their works. And her children I will slay with death; and all the assemblies shall know that I am He Who searcheth the reins and hearts; and I will give to you, each one, according to your works. But to you I say, to the rest who are in Thyatira, as many as have not this teaching, who knew not the deep things of Satan, as they say, I cast on you no other burden; nevertheless, that which ye have, hold fast till I come. And he that overcomes, and he that keeps My works until the end, to him will I give authority over the nations; and he shall rule them with a rod of iron, as the vessels of earthenware are broken in pieces, as I also have received from My Father; and I will give him the morning star.

And, when He took the book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, having, each, a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. And they sing a new song, saying, "Worthy art Thou to take the book, and to open its seals; because Thou wast slain, and didst redeem to God, by Thy blood, some of every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation; and didst make them, to our God, a Kingdom and priests, and they reign on the earth."

And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them; and judgment was given to them; and I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of the testimony of Jesus, and because of the word of God; and such as worshiped not the beast, neither his image, and received not the mark upon their forehead and upon their hand; and they lived, and reigned with Christ a thousand years. The rest of the dead lived not until the thousand years should be finished. This is the first resurrection. Happy and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no authority; but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.

And there shall be no more curse. And the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it; and His servants will serve Him; and they will see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. And there will be night no more; and they need no lamp-light, nor light of the sun; because the Lord God will illuminate them, and they shall reign forever and ever.

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For ye did not receive a spirit of bondage again unto fear; but ye received a spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, "Abba, Father." The Spirit Himself testifieth with our spirit, that we are children of God; read more.
and, if children, heirs also; heirs, indeed, of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if, indeed, we suffer with Him, that we may be also glorified with Him.

Christ, therefore, having suffered in flesh, do ye also arm yourselves with the same mind; because he who suffered in flesh has ceased from sin;

"And to the angel of the assembly in Smyrna write these things," saith the First and the Last, Who became dead, and lived: "I know your tribulation, and your poverty (but you are rich), and the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews, and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. Fear not the things which you are about to suffer. Behold, the Devil is about to cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days. Be faithful unto death, and I will give you the crown of life.

that I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death;

because the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and His ears are toward their supplication; but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil." And who is he that will harm you, if ye become zealous for that which is good? But, if ye should even suffer for righteousness sake, happy are ye. But fear not their fear, neither be troubled; read more.
but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts; ready always for an answer to every one who asks of you an account concerning the hope that is in you, yet with meekness and fear; having a good conscience; that, in whatever ye are spoken against, those who revile your good conduct may be put to shame. For it is better, if the will of God should will it, that ye suffer for well-doing, than for evil-doing;
