The Revelation of John Chapters 19-22
19[1-8] And then I heard a loud noise of many voices in heaven, saying, “Praise Yahweh!; May victory, honor, and power be Yahweh God’s who saved us! True and right are God’s judgments, which have judged the great whore who ruined the earth with her false worship, and which have taken revenge for the blood of God’s people at her hand.” And again they said, “Praise Yahweh!.” And the smoke of that city went up forever and ever. And the twenty-four elders and the four living animals bowed down and worshipped God who sat on the throne, saying, “So be it; Praise Yahweh!” And a voice came out of the throne, saying, “Praise our God, all you God’s people, and you that fear God, both small and great.” And I heard the voice of a great crowd, as the voice of rushing waters, and as the voice of powerful thundering, saying, “Praise Yahweh! All Powerful Yahweh God reigns. Let’s be happy and celebrate, and give honor to God because the marriage of the Lamb is here, whose spouse has made herself ready. And she was allowed to be clothed in pure white fine linen, because the fine linen is the acts of goodness of Christians.
[9-16] And I was told, “Write, Blessed are those who are called to the wedding supper of the Lamb.” And I was told, “These are the true sayings of God.” And I fell down to worship the angel who spoke, but I was told, “See that you don’t do it: I am your coworker, and of those that have the story of how Yeshua changed their lives: Worship God because the story of a changed life in Yeshua is the spirit of the Word, which was given ahead of time.” And I saw heaven opened, and saw a white horse; and the One who sat on it was called Faithful and True, and the Christ is right to judge and fight against evil. The Christ, who had eyes like flames of fire, wore many crowns; and had a name written, that no one knew, but only the Christ. And the Christ was clothed with a coat dipped in blood: and the Christ’s name is called The Word of God. And all the forces of heaven followed along on white horses, clothed in pure white fine linen. And out of the Christ’s mouth went a sharp sword, which is the Word of God, that the nations would be struck with it: and the Christ will rule them with a rod of iron: and trample the winepress of the fierceness and rage of Almighty God. And the name, Ruler of rulers, and Savior of saviors, is written on the Christ’s coat and thigh.
[17-21] And I saw an angel standing in the sun; who hollered out, saying to all the birds that fly in the middle of heaven, “Come and gather together to the supper of the great God; so that you can eat the bodies of rulers and captains, and the bodies of powerful people, and their soldiers and horses, and the bodies of everyone else, both free and not free, both small and great.” And I saw the creature, and the rulers of the earth, and their forces, gathered together to fight against the One who sat on the horse, and against the Christ’s forces. And the creature was taken, along with the false preacher that did amazing things for the creature, with which they lied to all those who had gotten the mark of the creature, and those who worshipped the clone of the creature. These were both thrown alive into a lake of fire burning with sulfur. And all the rest were put to death with the sword of the One who sat on the horse, which went out of the Christ’s mouth: and all the birds were filled with their bodies.
20[1-6] And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the power to open the bottomless pit and a great chain in the angel’s hand. And the angel took the dragon, that old snake, which is the devil, who is called Satan, which was chained a thousand years, and thrown into the bottomless pit, and shut it up. And the angel marked the devil so that he couldn’t mislead the nations any more, till the thousand years were over: and after that the devil must be freed for a little while. And I saw thrones, and those who sat on them, and judgment was given to them: and I saw the souls of those who were beheaded for their stories of Yeshua, and for the Word of God, and which hadn’t worshipped the creature, nor its clone, nor had gotten their mark in their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and ruled with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead didn’t come to life again until the thousand years were over. This is the first the coming to life again. Blessed and holy are those who take part in the first coming to life again: the second death will have no power over them, but they’ll be priests of Yahweh God and of Yeshua the Christ, and will reign with the Christ a thousand years.
[7-10] And when the thousand years are over, Satan will be freed out of the pit, and will once again go out to mislead the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, both the creature and the people, to gather them together for the battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and surrounded the forces of the Christians, and the greatly loved city of Jerusalem, but fire came down from God out of heaven, and burned them to death. And the devil that lied to them was put into the lake of fire and sulfur, where the creature and the false preacher are, and will suffer day and night forever and ever.
[11-15] And I saw a great white throne, and the One who sat on it, in whose presence the earth and the sky broke up and disappeared. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the Book of Life: and the dead were judged out of what was written in the books, for all the things they had done. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell gave up the dead which were in them: and they were all judged for what they had done. And death and hell were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And all those whose names weren’t found written in the Book of Life were thrown into the lake of fire.
21[1-8] And I saw a new heaven and a new earth because the first heaven and the first earth were destroyed; and there was no sea anymore. And I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, like a bride who has made herself beautiful for her husband. And I heard a loud voice out of heaven saying, “God’s place of worship is now with humanity, and God will be with them. They’ll be God’s people, and God will be with them, and be their God. And God will wipe every tear away from their eyes; and there won’t be any more death, sorrow, crying, or pain because all these things from before are ended. And the One who sat on the throne said, “I have made everything new.” And I was told, “Write all this down, because these words are true and faithful. It’s done, now. I am the First Word and the Last Word, the beginning and the end. I’ll freely give to those who are thirsty from the source of the water of life. Whoever overcomes will inherit everything; and I’ll be their God, and they’ll be my child. But those who are afraid, and unbelieving, and the sickening , and the murderers, and those who practice sexual sin, and those who do witchcraft, and those who worship falsely, and the liars, will have their part in the lake of fire and burning sulfur, which is the second death.
[9-14] And one of the seven angels, which had the seven dishes full of the seven last horrors, came to me, and talked with me, saying, “Come here, and I’ll show you the bride of Christ, the Lamb.” And I was carried away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shown that great holy city, the New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, having the light of God: and its light was like a very precious stone, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; And the city had a huge high wall, and had twelve gates, with angels at each gate, and names written on it, which are the names of the twelve families of the children of Israel. One name was on each of the three east gates; on the three north gates; on the three south gates; and on the three west gates. And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve followers of Christ, the Lamb.
[15-27] And the angel who talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, its gates, and its walls. And the city was built in a cube with the length the same as the width: and the angel measured the city with the reed, and it was 1,400 miles. Its length, width, and height are all equal. And the wall measured 216 feet thick, according to the measure of a human being, that is, of an angel. And the building of its wall was made of jasper: and the city was made of pure gold, as clear as glass. And the foundations of the city’s walls were decorated with all kinds of precious stones. The first foundation was clear jasper; the second, blue sapphire; the third, a bloodstone; the fourth, an emerald; the fifth, red carnelian; the sixth, ruby; the seventh, indigo chrysolite; the eighth, aquamarine; the ninth, gold topaz; the tenth, yellow green chrysoprase; the eleventh, orange jacinth; the twelfth, purple amethyst. And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; each gate was made of one large pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as clear as glass. And I saw no place of worship in it because Yahweh God Almighty and Christ, the Lamb are the place of worship. And the city won’t need the sun or the moon to shine in it because the light of God and Christ, the Lamb will shine in it. And the nations of those who are saved will walk in its light: and the rulers of the earth will bring their riches to honor it. And its gates won’t be shut at all by day and there’ll be no night there. And they’ll bring the riches and honor of the nations into it. And nothing will ever come into it that’s filthy, or sickening, or tells a lie: but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
22[1-5] And I was shown a pure river of the water of life, which was as clear as crystal, flowing from out of the throne of God and of Christ, the Lamb. The tree of life was in the middle of its street, and on both sides of the river, which made twelve different kinds of fruits, and yielded its fruit each month: and the leaves of the tree were used for the healing of the people. The curse will be over, so the throne of God and of Christ, the Lamb will be in it; and God’s people will serve them: And they’ll see God’s face; and God’s Name will be in their foreheads. And there won’t be any night there; and no one will ever need a candle, or sunlight, because Yahweh God gives them light: who will reign forever and ever.
[6-15] And the angel told me, “These stories are faithful and true: and Yahweh God of the great holy preachers sent this messenger to show to God’s people the things which will happen very soon. I’m coming soon: blessed is whoever keeps the sayings of the Word, which was given ahead of time in this book.” And I, John saw and heard all of this. And after I had heard and seen all this, I bowed down to worship at the feet of the angel, who told me, “Make sure that you don’t do that because I am one of your coworkers, and of the great preachers, and of those who keep the sayings of this book. Worship God.” And the angel told me, “Don’t hide the sayings of the Word, which was given ahead of time in this book because the time for it to be known is here now. Whoever is evil, let them still be evil: and whoever is filthy, let them still be filthy: and whoever is good, let them still be good: and whoever is holy, let them still be holy. I’m coming soon; and I have rewards to give to everyone for the work they’ve done. I am the First Word and the Last Word, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are those who do My Words, so that they can have the right to the tree of life, and can come in through the gates into the city. Outside the city are whores, and those who do witchcraft, and those who practice sexual sin, and murderers, and those who worship falsely, and those who love to tell lies.
[16-21] I, Yeshua, have sent My messenger to tell you all this in the churches. I am the both the Root and the Descendant of David, and the Bright and Morning Star. Let the Spirit and the church say, “Come.” And let those who hear say, “Come.” And let those who are thirsty come. And whoever wants it let them freely take from the water of life. I tell everyone that hears the message of the New Word, which was given ahead of time in this book, if anyone adds to the meaning of the things in this book, God will add to them the curses that are written in this book: And if anyone takes away from the meaning of this book of this New Word, which was given ahead of time, God will take away their part out of the Book of Life, and out of the holy city, and from all the blessings which are written in this book. The Christ who testifies of this said, “The truth is, I’m coming soon.” So be it! Yes, come soon, Christ Yeshua. May the grace of our Christ, Yeshua, be with you all. So be it!
