Revelation 1:12-18 NIV
I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned 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. [18] I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.

The Book of Revelation is an unveiling, a sneak peak at what is really going on in the world. Up until now in the Bible we’ve only seen the human Jesus, here we’re given a stunning insight into who he really is, the glory of the Divine Son of God. Don’t worry about understanding all the details, read it again and marvel at Jesus!

If we could truly see you for who you are, we would not have the words to describe you or to express our awe. No wonder John simply fell at your feet as if dead…
