Rev 1:4-8 John to the 'Seven Churches' that are in Asia:
'Grace' to you and 'Peace' from "Him" 'Who Is' and 'Who Was' and Who 'Is to Come', and from the 'Seven Spirits' Who are 'Before' "His" Throne, 5 and from "Jesus Christ" the 'Faithful Witness', the 'Firstborn of the Dead', and the 'Ruler of Kings on Earth'.
To "Him" who "Loves us" and has "Freed us from our Sins" by "His" "Blood" 6 and Made us a "Kingdom". 'Priests' to "His" "God" and "Father", to "Him" be Glory and Dominion Forever and Ever. Amen. 7 Behold, "He" is Coming with the Clouds, and every Eye will See "Him", even those who Pierced "Him", and all Tribes of the Earth will wail on account of "Him". Even so. Amen.
8 "I Am" the 'Alpha and the Omega'," says the Lord God, "Who Is" and "Who Was" and "Who is to Come", the Almighty."
Rev 1:17-20 17 When I saw "Him", I fell at "His" Feet" as though "Dead". But "He" laid "His" Right Hand" on me, saying, "Fear not, "I Am" the "First" and the "Last", 18 and the "Living One". "I "Died", and behold "I am" Alive" Forevermore", and "I have" the "Keys" of "Death and Hades". 19 "Write" therefore: "The things that you have "Seen". "Those that "Are". And those that are to take place" "After This". 20 As for the "Mystery of the "Seven Stars" that 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".
Rev 1:9-16 9 I, John, your "brother and partner" in the "tribulation" and the Kingdom and the patient endurance that are in Jesus, was on the "Island" called Patmos" on account of the "Word of God" and the "Testimony of "Jesus" (Rv12:11). 10 I was in the Spirit on the "Lord's Day", and I heard behind me a "Loud Voice" like a "Trumpet" 11 saying, "Write what you see in a "Book" 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 to me, and on turning I saw "Seven Golden" Lampstands", 13 and in the midst of the "Lampstand" "One" like a "Son of Man", clothed with a long Robe and with a "Golden Sash" around "His" Chest". 14 The "Hairs of "His" Head" were White" like Wool, as "White as Snow". "His" Eyes" were like a "Flame of Fire", 15 "His" Feet" were like "Burnished Bronze", Refined in a Furnace, and "His" voice was like the "Roar" of many Waters". 16 In "His" Right Hand" "He" held "Seven stars", from "His" Mouth" came a "Sharp 'Two-Edged' Sword", and "His" Face" was like the "Sun Shining" in "Full Strength".
The Lord knows those who are really "His", and a Person who Calls himself a "Christian" "Should Not" be Doing Things that are "Wrong." 2Tim 2:19
Rev 1:5-7 ..To "Him" who "Loves us" and has "Freed us from Our Sins by "His" Blood" and Made us a Kingdom", "Priests to "His" "God" and "Father", to "Him" be Glory and Dominion Forever and Ever". Amen. Behold, "He" is Coming with the Clouds, and Every Eye Will See "Him"
Is the "Marriage of the Lamb" "Before" or "After" "His" "2nd Coming"? "Holiness" is the answer. The "Wedding of the Lamb" will take place with the "Heavenly Father" in "Attendance", "Before" "Jesus" "2nd Return" to "Destroy Sin". 2Th 2:8, Rv 11:18 "Then Restoration begins". Amos 9:11-15
19 I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live, 20 loving the Lord your God, obeying his voice and holding fast to him, for he is your life and length of days, that you may dwell in the land that the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them."
13 The Lord says, "My servant will succeed in his task; he will be highly honored.
14 Many people were shocked when they saw him; he was so disfigured that he
hardly looked human.
15 But now many nations will marvel at him, and kings will be speechless with amazement.
They will see and understand something they had never known."
1 Cor 6:19-20
Do You not Know that Your "Body" is the "Temple" of the "Holy Spirit" "Who" is "In" You, Whom You "Have" from God, and "You are Not Your Own"? For You were "Bought at a Price"; therefore "Glorify God" in Your "Body" and in "Your "Spirit", "Which Are" "God's".
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself up for it; 26 that he might sanctify it, having cleansed it by the washing of water with the word, 27 that he might present the church to himself gloriously, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. 28 Even so husbands also ought to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself. 29 For no man ever hated his own flesh; but nourishes and cherishes it, even as Christ also does the church; 30 because we are members of his body. 31 "For this cause a man will leave his father and mother, and will be joined to his wife. The two will become one flesh." 32 This mystery is great, but I speak concerning Christ and of the church.
2 Cor 4:17-18
For This Slight Momentary Affliction is Preparing for us an Eternal Weight of Glory Beyond All Comparison, as we Look not to the Things that are Seen but to the Things that are Unseen. For the Things that Are Seen are Transient, but the Things that are Unseen Are Eternal.

Ephesians 5:28-30 28 So Husbands ought to Love their own Wives as their own Bodies; He who Loves His Wife Loves Himself. 29 For No One ever Hated His own Flesh, but Nourishes and Cherishes it, just as the Lord does the Church. 30 For we are Members of His Body, His Flesh and His Bones.
Ephesians 2:19-22 19 Consequently, you are no longer Foreigners and Aliens, but Fellow Citizens with God's People and Members of God's Household, 20 built on the Foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, with Christ Jesus Himself as the Chief Cornerstone. 21 In Him the whole Building is joined together and Rises (Gathering) to become a Holy Temple in the Lord. 22 And in Him you too are being built together to become a Dwelling in which God lives by His Spirit.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 19 Or do you not Know that your Body is a Temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, 20 for you were bought with a Price. (The Gift of Jesus. John 3, Ephesians :8-9, Romans 4:5.) So Glorify God in your body.
2 Kings 17:14-18 James 2:10, Matthew 5:17
14 But they would not Listen, but were Stubborn, as their Fathers had been, who Did Not Believe in the Lord their God. 15 They Despised His Statutes and His Covenant that he made with their Fathers and the Warnings that He gave them. They went after False Idols and became False, and they followed the Nations that were around them, concerning whom the Lord had Commanded them that they should "Not Do" like them. 16 And they Abandoned all the Commandments of the Lord their God, and made for themselves Metal Images of two Calves; and they made an Asherah and Worshiped all the Host of Heaven and served Baal. 17 And they Burned their Sons and their Daughters as Offerings and used Divination and Omens and Sold Themselves to Do Evil in the Sight of the Lord, Provoking Him to Anger.
20 I have been Crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who Live, but Christ who Lives in Me. And the Life I now live in the Flesh I Live by Faith in the Son of God, who Loved Me and gave Himself for Me.
1 Everyone who Believes that Jesus is the Christ has been Born of God, and everyone who Loves the Father Loves whoever has been Born of hHim. 2 By this we know that we Love the children of God, when we Love God and Obey His Commandments. 3 For this is the Love of God, that we keep His Commandments. And His Commandments are not burdensome. 4 For everyone who has been Born of God Overcomes the World. And this is the Victory that has Overcome the World— Our Faith. 5 Who is it that Overcomes the World except the One who Believes that Jesus is the "Son of God"?
8 This people honoreth me with their lips; But their heart is far from me.
9 But in vain do they worship me, Teaching (as their) doctrines the precepts of men.
7 Therefore be Patient, Brethren, until the Coming of the Lord. See how the Farmer waits for the Precious Fruit of the Earth, Waiting Patiently for it until it Receives the Early and Latter Rain. 8 You also be Patient. Establish Your Hearts, for the Coming of the Lord is at Hand.
9 Do Not Grumble Against One Another, Brethren, lest You be Condemned. Behold, the Judge is Standing at the Door!
10 My Brethren, take the Prophets, who Spoke in the Name of the Lord, as an Example of Suffering and Patience.
11 We know how Happy they are now because they stayed True to Him then, even though they Suffered Greatly for it. Job is an example of a Man who Continued to Trust the Lord in Sorrow; from his Experiences We can see how the Lord's Plan finally Ended in Good, for He is Full of Tenderness and Mercy.
Rev 21:7 The One Who Conquers will have this Heritage, & I will be His God & He will be My Son. But as for the Cowardly, the Faithless, the Detestable, as for Murderers, the Sexually Immoral, Sorcerers, Idolaters, & all Liars, Their Portion will be in the Lake that Burns with Fire & Sulfur.
