WELCOME TO " A GlIMPSE OF ETERNITY " 

May the Light of the Lord's Love Shine brightly into all your Hearts.

 

{ 1 John 1 : 5 } " God is light, and in Him there is no darkness at all."

{ John 8 : 12 } Jesus said " I am the Light of the world, he who follows Me shall not walk in darkness but shall have the light of Life."

{ Acts 26 : 18 } I am sending you to open their eyes so that they may turn from darknss to light and from the dominion of satan to God, in order that they may recieve forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been saved by faith in Me.

{ Col 1 : 13 - 14  } For He has delivered us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption , forgiveness of sins. 

{ Rev 1: 13 - 18 } And in the middle of the lampstands one like a son of man, clothed in a robe reaching down to the feet, and girded across His breast with a golden girdle. And His head and his hair were white like white wool, like snow; and His eyes were like a flame of fire; and His feet were like burnished bronze, when it has been caused to glow in a furnace, and His voice was like the sound of many waters. And in His right hand He held out seven stars; and out of His mouth came a sharp two-edged sword; and His face was like the sun shining in its strength. And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as a dead man. And He laid His right hand upon me, saying " Do not be afraid; I am the first & the last, and the living One; and I was dead and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades

Over the years some people have questioned my experience & so I would like to reiterate this scripture  { 2 Cor 12: 2 - 4 } " I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago - whether in his body I do not know, or out of his body I do not know, God knows - such a man was caught up to the third heaven. And I know how such a man - whether in his body or apart from his body I do not know, God knows - was caught up into Paradise."

I personally believe I died & was taken out of my body into the New Earth & New Heavens. That I had what is termed a " life after death experience ". I believe I stood before the Risen Lord Jesus Christ in His Glorified form { Rev 1 : 13 - 18 }. But at the end of the day, the person who truly knows is God.

Some people may not accept this is what happened which is totaly fine.  I am not trying to tell you what to believe. You may believe it was just a dream or a hallucination.

But one thing I do know, is that after following Jesus since 1982, I can't wait to see Him again and step through into the New Heavens & New Earth { Rev 21: 1 - 7 } { 2 Peter 3 : 10 - 18 }.

My prayer is that my experience will help you to come to know Jesus Christ as your Personal Lord & Saviour.  { Romans 10 : 8 - 13 }. Jesus wishes that none would perish but all would come to know eternal life in Him { 2 Peter 3 : 10 - 18 } 

Gods Richest Blessings

{ Exodus 27:20 } “You shall charge the sons of Israel, that they bring you clear oil of beaten olives for the light, to make a lamp burn continually.

{ Deuteronomy 33:1-3 } Now this is the blessing with which Moses the man of God blessed the sons of Israel before his death. He said, “The Lord came from Sinai,
And dawned on them from Seir;
He shone forth from Mount Paran,
And He came from the midst of ten thousand holy ones;
At His right hand there was flashing lightning for them. “Indeed, He loves the people;
All Your holy ones are in Your hand,
And they followed in Your steps;
Everyone receives of Your words.

{ Job 3:23 } “Why is light given to a man whose way is hidden, And whom God has hedged in?

‘I have sinned and perverted what is right,
And it is not proper for me. ‘He has redeemed my soul from going to the pit,
And my life shall see the light.’

 “Behold, God does all these oftentimes with men,

{ Job 36:32 } “He covers His hands with the lightning, And commands it to strike the mark.

{ Job 38:19 } “Where is the way to the dwelling of light? And darkness, where is its place,

{ Job 38:24 } “Where is the way that the light is divided, Or the east wind scattered on the earth?

{ Job 41:17-19 } “They are joined one to another;
They clasp each other and cannot be separated. “His sneezes flash forth light,
And his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning.

Sparks of fire leap forth.

{Psalm 49:18-20 }  Though while he lives he congratulates himself.
And though men praise you when you do well for yourself, He shall go to the generation of his fathers;
They will never see the light. Man in his pomp, yet without understanding,
Is like the beasts that perish.

{ Psalm 56:13 } For You have delivered my soul from death, Indeed my feet from stumbling, So that I may walk before God In the light of the living.

{ Psalm 74:15-17 } You broke open springs and torrents;
You dried up ever-flowing streams. Yours is the day, Yours also is the night;

You have made summer and winter.

He makes the clouds His chariot;
He walks upon the wings of the wind;

{ Psalm 119:105 }  Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.

{ Psalm 119:130 } The unfolding of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple.

{ Psalm 139:10-12 }  Even there Your hand will lead me,
And Your right hand will lay hold of me. If I say, “Surely the darkness will overwhelm me,
And the light around me will be night,” Even the darkness is not dark to You,
And the night is as bright as the day.
Darkness and light are alike to You.

{ Proverbs 4:17-19 } they eat the bread of wickedness
And drink the wine of violence. But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn,
That shines brighter and brighter until the full day. The way of the wicked is like darkness;
They do not know over what they stumble.

{ Proverbs 6:23 } For the commandment is a lamp and the teaching is light; And reproofs for discipline are the way of life

{ Proverbs 13:9 } The light of the righteous rejoices, But the lamp of the wicked goes out.

{ Proverbs 16:15 } In the light of a king’s face is life, And his favor is like a cloud with the spring rain.

{ Proverbs 29:13 } The poor man and the oppressor have this in common: The Lord gives light to the eyes of both.

{ Ecclesiastes 2:13 } And I saw that wisdom excels folly as light excels darkness.

{ Ecclesiastes 12:1-3 } Remember also your Creator in the days of your youth, before the evil days come and the years draw near when you will say, “I have no delight in them”; before the sun and the light, the moon and the stars are darkened, and clouds return after the rain; in the day that the watchmen of the house tremble, and mighty men stoop, the grinding ones stand idle because they are few, and those who look through windows grow dim;

{ Isaiah 5:20 } Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

{ Isaiah 9:2 } The people who walk in darkness Will see a great light; Those who live in a dark land, The light will shine on them.

{ Isaiah 10:17 } And the light of Israel will become a fire and his Holy One a flame, And it will burn and devour his thorns and his briars in a single day.

{ Isaiah 13:9-11 } Behold, the day of the Lord is coming,
Cruel, with fury and burning anger,
To make the land a desolation;
And He will exterminate its sinners from it. For the stars of heaven and their constellations
Will not flash forth their light;
The sun will be dark when it rises
And the moon will not shed its light. Thus I will punish the world for its evil
And the wicked for their iniquity;
I will also put an end to the arrogance of the proud
And abase the haughtiness of the ruthless.

{ Isaiah 30:25-27 } On every lofty mountain and on every high hill there will be streams running with water on the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall. The light of the moon will be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be seven times brighter, like the light of seven days, on the day the Lord binds up the fracture of His people and heals the bruise He has inflicted. Behold, the name of the Lord comes from a remote place;
Burning is His anger and dense is His smoke;
His lips are filled with indignation
And His tongue is like a consuming fire;

{ Isaiah 42:5-7 } Thus says God the Lord, Who created the heavens and stretched them out,
Who spread out the earth and its offspring,
Who gives breath to the people on it
And spirit to those who walk in it, “I am the Lord, I have called You in righteousness,
I will also hold You by the hand and watch over You,
And I will appoint You as a covenant to the people,
As a light to the nations, To open blind eyes,
To bring out prisoners from the dungeon
And those who dwell in darkness from the prison

{ Isaiah 45:7 } The One forming light and creating darkness, Causing well-being and creating calamity; I am the Lord who does all these.

{ Isaiah 49:6 } He says, “It is too small a thing that You should be My Servant To raise up the tribes of Jacob and to restore the preserved ones of Israel; I will also make You a light of the nations So that My salvation may reach to the end of the earth.”

{ Isaiah 50:10 } Who is among you that fears the Lord, That obeys the voice of His servant, That walks in darkness and has no light? Let him trust in the name of the Lord and rely on his God.

{ Isaiah 51:4-5 } “Pay attention to Me, O My people,
And give ear to Me, O My nation;
For a law will go forth from Me,
And I will set My justice for a light of the peoples. “My righteousness is near, My salvation has gone forth,
And My arms will judge the peoples;
The coastlands will wait for Me,
And for My arm they will wait expectantly.

{ Isaiah 58:7-9 }  “Is it not to divide your bread with the hungry
And bring the homeless poor into the house;
When you see the naked, to cover him;
And not to hide yourself from your own flesh? “Then your light will break out like the dawn,
And your recovery will speedily spring forth;
And your righteousness will go before you;
The glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. “Then you will call, and the Lord will answer;
You will cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’
If you remove the yoke from your midst,
The pointing of the finger and speaking wickedness,

{ Isaiah 58:10-11 } And if you give yourself to the hungry
And satisfy the desire of the afflicted,
Then your light will rise in darkness
And your gloom will become like midday. “And the Lord will continually guide you,
And satisfy your desire in scorched places,
And give strength to your bones;
And you will be like a watered garden,
And like a spring of water whose waters do not fail.

 {Isaiah 60:1-3 } “Arise, shine; for your light has come,
And the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. “For behold, darkness will cover the earth
And deep darkness the peoples;
But the Lord will rise upon you
And His glory will appear upon you. “Nations will come to your light,
And kings to the brightness of your rising.

{ Isaiah 60:19-21 } “No longer will you have the sun for light by day,
Nor for brightness will the moon give you light;
But you will have the Lord for an everlasting light,
And your God for your glory. “Your sun will no longer set,
Nor will your moon wane;
For you will have the Lord for an everlasting light,
And the days of your mourning will be over. “Then all your people will be righteous;
They will possess the land forever,
The branch of My planting,
The work of My hands,
That I may be glorified.

{ Jeremiah 4:23-24 } I looked on the earth, and behold, it was formless and void;
And to the heavens, and they had no light. I looked on the mountains, and behold, they were quaking,
And all the hills moved to and fro.

{ Ezekiel 1:4 } As I looked, behold, a storm wind was coming from the north, a great cloud with fire flashing forth continually and a bright light around it, and in its midst something like glowing metal in the midst of the fire.

{ Ezekiel 1:13 } In the midst of the living beings there was something that looked like burning coals of fire, like torches darting back and forth among the living beings. The fire was bright, and lightning was flashing from the fire.

{ Ezekiel 1: 26 – 28 } Now above the expanse that was over their heads there was something resembling a throne, like lapis lazuli in appearance; and on that which resembled a throne, high up, was a figure with the appearance of a man. Then I noticed from the appearance of His loins and upward something like glowing metal that looked like fire all around within it, and from the appearance of His loins and downward I saw something like fire; and there was a radiance around Him. As the appearance of the rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the appearance of the surrounding radiance. Such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. And when I saw it, I fell on my face and heard a voice speaking.

{ Ezekiel 32:7-8 } “And when I extinguish you,
I will cover the heavens and darken their stars;
I will cover the sun with a cloud
And the moon will not give its light. “All the shining lights in the heavens
I will darken over you
And will set darkness on your land,”
Declares the Lord God.

{ Daniel 2:21-22 } “It is He who changes the times and the epochs;
He removes kings and establishes kings;
He gives wisdom to wise men
And knowledge to men of understanding. “It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things;
He knows what is in the darkness,
And the light dwells with Him.

{ Amos 5:18 } Alas, you who are longing for the day of the Lord, For what purpose will the day of the Lord be to you? It will be darkness and not light;

{ Micah 7:6-8 } For son treats father contemptuously,
Daughter rises up against her mother,
Daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law;
A man’s enemies are the men of his own household. But as for me, I will watch expectantly for the Lord;
I will wait for the God of my salvation.
My God will hear me.

Do not rejoice over me, O my enemy.
Though I fall I will rise;
Though I dwell in darkness, the Lord is a light for me.

{ Micah 7:9 } I will bear the indignation of the Lord Because I have sinned against Him, Until He pleads my case and executes justice for me. He will bring me out to the light, And I will see His righteousness.

{ Habakkuk 3:11 } Sun and moon stood in their places; They went away at the light of Your arrows, At the radiance of Your gleaming spear.

{ Zechariah 14:5-7 } You will flee by the valley of My mountains, for the valley of the mountains will reach to Azel; yes, you will flee just as you fled before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the Lord, my God, will come, and all the holy ones with Him!  In that day there will be no light; the luminaries will dwindle. For it will be a unique day which is known to the Lord, neither day nor night, but it will come about that at evening time there will be light.

{ Matthew 5:14 } “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden;

{ Matthew 5:16 } Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

{ Matthew 6:21-23 } “The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!

{ Matthew 17:2 } And He was transfigured before them; and His face shone like the sun, and His garments became as white as light.

{ Matthew 24:29-30 } “But immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory.

{ Mark 4:22 } For nothing is hidden, except to be revealed; nor has anything been secret, but that it would come to light.

{ Luke 2 : 26 – 34 } When the parents brought in the child Jesus, to carry out for Him the custom of the Law, then he took Him into his arms, and blessed God, and said, “Now Lord, You are releasing Your bond-servant to depart in peace,
According to Your word; For my eyes have seen Your salvation, Which You have prepared in the presence of all peoples, A Light of revelation to the Gentiles,
And the glory of Your people Israel.” And His father and mother were amazed at the things which were being said about Him. And Simeon blessed them

 {Luke 11:35-36 } Then watch out that the light in you is not darkness. If therefore your whole body is full of light, with no dark part in it, it will be wholly illumined, as when the lamp illumines you with its rays.”

{ John 1:3-4  } All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

{ John 1:5 } The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

{ John 1:6-8 } There came a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witness, to testify about the Light, so that all might believe through him. He was not the Light, but he came to testify about the Light.

{ John 1:9-10 } There was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.

{ John 3:18-21 } He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.”

{ John 8:12  } Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”

{ John 9:5 } While I am in the world, I am the Light of the world.”

{ John 12:35 } So Jesus said to them, “For a little while longer the Light is among you. Walk while you have the Light, so that darkness will not overtake you; he who walks in the darkness does not know where he goes.

{ John 12:36 } While you have the Light, believe in the Light, so that you may become sons of Light.” These things Jesus spoke, and He went away and hid Himself from them.

{ Acts 9:1-4 } Now Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest, and asked for letters from him to the synagogues at Damascus, so that if he found any belonging to the Way, both men and women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem. As he was traveling, it happened that he was approaching Damascus, and suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him; and he fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?”

{ Acts 22:8-10 } And I answered, ‘Who are You, Lord?’ And He said to me, ‘I am Jesus the Nazarene, whom you are persecuting.’ And those who were with me saw the light, to be sure, but did not understand the voice of the One who was speaking to me. And I said, ‘What shall I do, Lord?’ And the Lord said to me, ‘Get up and go on into Damascus, and there you will be told of all that has been appointed for you to do.’

{ Acts 26:12-14 } While so engaged as I was journeying to Damascus with the authority and commission of the chief priests, at midday, O King, I saw on the way a light from heaven, brighter than the sun, shining all around me and those who were journeying with me.  And when we had all fallen to the ground, I heard a voice saying to me in the Hebrew dialect, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.’

{ Acts 26:17-19 } rescuing you from the Jewish people and from the Gentiles, to whom I am sending you, to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me.’ “So, King Agrippa, I did not prove disobedient to the heavenly vision,

 { Acts 26:22-23 } So, having obtained help from God, I stand to this day testifying both to small and great, stating nothing but what the Prophets and Moses said was going to take place; that the Christ was to suffer, and that by reason of His resurrection from the dead He would be the first to proclaim light both to the Jewish people and to the Gentiles.”

{ Acts 12:7 } And behold, an angel of the Lord suddenly appeared and a light shone in the cell; and he struck Peter’s side and woke him up, saying, “Get up quickly.” And his chains fell off his hands.

{ Acts 13:46-48 } Paul and Barnabas spoke out boldly and said, “It was necessary that the word of God be spoken to you first; since you repudiate it and judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life, behold, we are turning to the Gentiles. For so the Lord has commanded us, ‘I have placed You as a light for the Gentiles,
That You may bring salvation to the end of the earth.’”  When the Gentiles heard this, they began rejoicing and glorifying the word of the Lord; and as many as had been appointed to eternal life believed.

{ Romans 13:12 } The night is almost gone, and the day is near. Therefore let us lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.

 { 1 Corinthians 4:5 } Therefore do not go on passing judgment before the time, but wait until the Lord comes who will both bring to light the things hidden in the darkness and disclose the motives of men’s hearts; and then each man’s praise will come to him from God.

{ 2 Corinthians 4:3-5 } And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For we do not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your bond-servants for Jesus’ sake.

{ 2 Corinthians 4:6 } For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.

{ 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 } Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

{ 2 Corinthians 6:14 } Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness?

{ 2 Corinthians 11:13-15 } For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their deeds.

{ Ephesians 3:8-10 }  To me, the very least of all saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ, and to bring to light what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God who created all things; so that the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known through the church to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly places.

{ Ephesians 5:7-9 } Therefore do not be partakers with them; for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light (for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth),

{ Ephesians 5:12-14 } for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret. But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light. For this reason it says, “Awake, sleeper,
And arise from the dead,
And Christ will shine on you.”

{ Philippians 2:14-16 } Do all things without grumbling or disputing; so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I will have reason to glory because I did not run in vain nor toil in vain.

{ Colossians 1:11-13 } strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and [c]patience; joyously giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light. For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son,

{ 1 Thessalonians 5:4-6 } But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day would overtake you like a thief; for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night nor of darkness; so then let us not sleep as others do, but let us be alert and sober.

{ 1 Timothy 6:15-17 } which He will bring about at the proper time—He who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone possesses immortality and dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see. To Him be honor and eternal dominion! Amen.

{ 2 Timothy 1:9-11 } who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was granted us in Christ Jesus from all eternity, but now has been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel, for which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle and a teacher.

{ James 1:17 } Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.

{ 1 John 1:5 } This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all.

{ 1 John 1:6-8 } If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us.

{ 1 John 2:7-9 } Beloved, I am not writing a new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you have had from the beginning; the old commandment is the word which you have heard. On the other hand, I am writing a new commandment to you, which is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the true Light is already shining. The one who says he is in the Light and yet hates his brother is in the darkness until now.

{ Revelation 18:22-24 } And the sound of harpists and musicians and flute-players and trumpeters will not be heard in you any longer; and no craftsman of any craft will be found in you any longer; and the sound of a mill will not be heard in you any longer; and the light of a lamp will not shine in you any longer; and the voice of the bridegroom and bride will not be heard in you any longer; for your merchants were the great men of the earth, because all the nations were deceived by your sorcery. And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints and of all who have been slain on the earth.”

{ Revelation 21:23-25 } And the city has no need of the sun or of the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God has illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb. The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it. In the daytime (for there will be no night there) its gates will never be closed;

{ Revelation 22:4-5 }  they will see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads. And there will no longer be any night; and they will not have need of the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because the Lord God will illumine them; and they will reign forever and ever.

 {Revelation 1:13-18 } and in the middle of the lampstands I saw one like a son of man, clothed in a robe reaching to the feet, and girded across His chest with a golden sash. His head and His hair were white like white wool, like snow; and His eyes were like a flame of fire. His feet were like burnished bronze, when it has been made to glow in a furnace, and His voice was like the sound of many waters. In His right hand He held seven stars, and out of His mouth came a sharp two-edged sword; and His face was like the sun shining in its strengthWhen I saw Him, I fell at His feet like a dead man. And He placed His right hand on me, saying, “Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades.
