When the curtain rises, the risen Christ stands alone on the stage (Revelation 22:10). The one who is the Alpha and the Omega (13) addresses the recipients of the book, exhorting and encouraging them to heed the message of Revelation (12-19).
Then, his words completed, the risen Christ slowly fades from sight. The audience, realizing that the risen Christ has been speaking to them, rises to their feet.
Spontaneously, they respond to all they have seen and heard by crying, “Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!”
For the final time, the curtain falls.
