" ... I am the First and the Last" (Revelation 1:17 KJV)
Jesus Greets John the Revelator: Revelation 1:12-18 (KJV)
Revelation 1:12-18 The Apostle John is reintroduced to Jesus Christ appearing from His Heavenly Reign. John uses a simile to compare the radiance of His appearance to the bright shining Sun of Earth's solar system:
I turned to see the Voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven
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 two-edged 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.'
