Introduction
.... And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new.  
And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

And he said unto me, It is done.
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.  
I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. ....
