Godless church
How Jesus
identifies Himself to each church.
He who holds
the 7 stars in
His right hand, who walks in
the midst of
the churches
The First and
the Last,
who was dead, and came to life.
He who has
the sharp two-edged sword.
The Son of God, who has eyes
like a flame
of fire, and His   feet like fine brass.
He who has
the 7 Spirits of God and the 7 stars.
He who is holy, and true, who
has the key to David's  throne.
He who opens and no one
shuts, and
shuts and
no one opens.
The Amen,
the Faithful and True Witness,
the beginning
of creation
of God
