These verses begin with, I John your brother and companion in the tribulation and patience of Jesus Christ.  Those were days of persecution.  I do believe it is coming back even in our beloved country the USA.
An interesting phrase used by John, “I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day.” That is what we need too.  Next we hear Jesus saying, “I am Alpha and Omega” meaning Jesus is the first and last and some have said everything in between.  John is now to begin a book to seven prominent churches which to me designate the history of Christianity as we know it.
Next John sees a lampstand and one like the Son of Man standing in the midst of the lamps.  I don’t know if I have time or space to do much about Jesus hair which makes Him the Ancient of days.  The character of eye like flame of fire and the other things are brought out as he reprimands each of the seven churches except two. Some of His characteristics are also seen in chapter 19:11-17.
