King James Version
14 And unto the angel of the church
of the Laodiceans write;
These things saith the Amen,
the faithful and true witness,
the beginning of the creation of God;
What a wealth of material on the Lord JESUS!
Here's how chapters 1 to 3 of the Book of Revelation describe the LORD:
The faithful witness.
The first begotten of the dead.
The prince of the kings of the earth.
Who loved us.
Who washed us from our sins in his own blood.
And had made us kings and priests unto God and his Father.
He will come with the clouds.
The Alpha and Omega.
The beginning and the ending.
Which is, which was, and which is to come.
Standing in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks.
Clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.
His head and hairs were white like wool, as white as snow;.
His eyes were as a flame of fire;
His feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace.
His voice as the sound of many waters.
In his right hand seven stars.
Out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword.
His countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.
The first and the last.
He is he that liveth, was dead, and alive forevermore.
He has the keys of hell and death.
He knows the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
He will kill Jezebel's children with death.
That all the churches may know it is he who searches the reins and hearts.
He will give everyone according to our works.
He will give the morning star to those who overcome.
He is the root and offspring of David.
He is the bright and morning star.
He has the seven Spirits of God.
He has the seven stars.
He has the key of David.
Whatever He opens, no one can shut.
Whatever He shuts, no one can open.
He will come quickly.
He is the faithful and true witness.
He is the beginning of the creation of God.
He rebukes, and chastens.
