I am Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Blessed are they, which wash their garments, that they may have right to the Tree of life, and that they may enter in through the gates to the city. For outside are dogs, and sorcerers, and whores, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loves lies and does lie. I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify to you these things for the communities. I am the root and the offspring of David, the shining morning star.
