Santa Paula Church of Christ

While John was banished to the rocky island of Patmos, ... God showed the elderly apostle what would happen ... [Revelation] delivers a dramatic and detailed ... picture of [Jesus]. As John was involved in worship one Lord’s Day, he heard a loud voice. Was it recognizable as the voice of Jesus, the God-Man with whom John walked while he lived on the earth? We don’t know. What we do know, however, is that when John saw Jesus in his glorified state, he “fell at his feet as though dead.”

John’s description of the glorified Jesus is stunning and awesome. Jesus’ different features symbolize different aspects of his being.

12 I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. ... I saw seven golden lampstands 13 and among the lampstands was someone like a son of man, dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. 14 The hair on his head was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire.15 His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters. 16 In his right hand he held seven stars, and coming out of his mouth was a sharp, double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance. 17 When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last.  (Rev. 1:12-17).

How would you have responded in such a situation? Does this awesome figure represent the God you serve? As you read through this passage and consider the different aspects of Jesus’ power and holiness, let them seep into your soul and fill you with a new and awe and reverence for Jesus, your majestic Savior (Thoughts taken from the Men’s Promise Keepers Bible, 1415).
