In the Book of the Revelation of Christ Jesus chapters 1-3, how did Jesus identify Himself?


JESUS INTRODUCES HIMSELF

1 This is the revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants what must soon come to pass. He made it known by sending His angel to His servant John, 2who testifies to everything he saw. This is the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ.”I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, who is and was and is to come–the Almighty.

Following this John describes the Person he sees. Of this Person John says:

“And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as though dead. And He placed His right hand upon me, saying…”

“Fear not, I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last…

…the Living One. I was dead, and behold, now I am alive forever and ever!

…I have the keys of Hades and of Death.

Him who holds the seven stars in His right hand and walks among the seven golden lampstands.

These are the words of the One who has the sharp, double-edged sword.

These are the words of the Son of God, whose eyes are like a blazing fire and whose feet are like polished bronze.

These are the words of the One who has the sevenfold Spirit of God and the seven stars.

These are the words of the One who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What He opens, no one will shut; and what He shuts, no one will open.

These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Originator of God’s creation.

Jesus is further revealed when He speaks to the churches and identifies Himself.

These are the words of him who holds the seven stars in his right hand and walks among the seven golden lampstands. 

8 To the angel of the church in Smyrna write: These are the words of the First and the Last, who died and returned to life.

12 To the angel of the church in Pergamum write: These are the words of the One who has the sharp, double-edged sword.

1 To the angel of the church in Sardis write: These are the words of the One who has the sevenfold Spirit of God and the seven stars.

This Jesus said to the Church at Philadelphia: “

7 To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: These are the words of the One who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What He opens, no one will shut; and what He shuts, no one will open….For you have only a little strength, yet you have kept My word and have not denied My name.”

14 To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Originator of God’s creation.
