New American Standard Version of the Bible...and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood-- 6and He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father--to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. Revelation 1:5-6 (NAS)

Added to the Kingdom:

When Jesus established His church in Acts 2, those that obeyed the gospel from that time forward were added to His church by the Lord:

New King James Version of the Bible"Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them...praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved."  Acts 2:41, 47 (NKJ)

Jesus is the head of His church...He is the Chief Shepherd...the High Priest forever:

New American Standard Version of the Bible"And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fulness of Him who fills all in all."  Ephesians 1:22-23 (NAS)

"He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the first-born from the dead; so that He Himself might come to have first place in everything."   Colossians 1:18  (NAS)

"Now the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the eternal covenant, even Jesus our Lord..." Hebrews 13:20  (NAS)

"And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory."  1 Peter 5:4  (NAS)

"Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the Apostle and High Priest of our confession."  Hebrews 3:1  (NAS)

Jesus has made His followers a royal priesthood, each being a priest unto God:

 New American Standard Version of the Bible"But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God's own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; for you once were not a people, but now you are the people of God; you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy."  1 Peter 2:9-10  (NAS)

"...and He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father; to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen."  Revelation 1:6 (NAS)

Jesus is coming again!

Revelation continues reminding the followers of Jesus that He will come again:

New American Standard Version of the BibleBehold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. So it is to be. Amen. 8"I am the Alpha and the Omega," says the Lord God, "who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty."  Revelation 1:7-8
