GLIMPSES OF THE GREAT GOD: DAY TWENTY EIGHT
"I, John....was on the island of Patmos
because of the Word of God and the testimony of Jesus....
On the Lord’s Day I was in the Spirit
and I heard a loud voice behind me like a trumpet...
I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me.
And when I turned I saw seven golden lamp stands,
and among the lamp stands was someone “like a son of man,”
dressed in a robe down to His feet
and with a golden sash around His chest.
His head and His hair were white like wool,
as white as snow,
and His eyes were like blazing fire.
His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace,
and His voice was like the sound of rushing waters.
In His right hand were seven stars,
and out of His mouth came a sharp double-edged sword.
His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.
When I saw Him, I fell at His feet as though dead."
Revelation 1:9a, 10, 12-17
The Jesus we worship is not a baby in a cradle, a carpenter in his workshop or an itinerant preacher walking the dusty roads of Galilee. He is a glorious and glorified Lord, majestic, beautiful and so terrifying that John, who once leaned on His breast, “fell at His feet as though dead.” We need to lay aside the image of the human Jesus and focus on the risen Christ who is God and who stands in our place in the presence of the Father to intercede for us.
