Revelation 1:13-15 (NASB)
13 and in the middle of the lampstands I saw one like a son of man, clothed in a robe reaching to the feet, and girded across His chest with a golden sash.
14 His head and His hair were white like white wool, like snow; and His eyes were like a flame of fire.
15 His feet were like burnished bronze, when it has been made to glow in a furnace, and His voice was like the sound of many waters.
It seems Jesus looked a little different than the last time John had seen Him. This may just surpass the limits of my imagination. I certainly don’t think any artist could do it justice. The part that really trips me out is the voice. What must it be like to hear someone talk in a voice that is “like the sound of many waters?” Imagine the ocean or a loud river talking to you in words you can understand.
Obviously, I’m reading through Revelation right now.
I am not so much struck by the things I can’t know for sure, like the exact meaning of some of the symbolism, or a definitive chronology of end-time events (although some of the theories are pretty interesting).
Rather, I am amazed by the details that are provided.
I am given a peek at events around the throne of God, and glimpses of places and things in heaven. How cool is that?!
I am reminded that God will not allow the world to continue on its sin-corrupted course forever. I am assured that He will one day make all things right. What a glorious and amazing hope!
Blessed indeed is the one who reads and heeds! (Rev 1:3)
This is a beautiful song about Jesus as He is revealed in Revelation. Enjoy!
