The man dressed in linen, who was standing above the river, raised both his hands toward heaven and took a solemn oath by the One who lives forever, saying, "It will go on for a time, times, and half a time. When the shattering of the holy people has finally come to an end, all these things will have happened."
I am the living one. I died, but look--I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and the grave.
And instantly I was in the Spirit, and I saw a throne in heaven and someone sitting on it.
