The Mighty, Glorified Christ - Revelations 1: 12-20



As a reminder, the revelation came from Jesus to John, from John to the churches and then to us today.
Apostle John was converted at the age of 25. He was with JESUS in His earthly ministry, when He died and when He ascended to heaven.

As a reminder, the revelation came from Jesus to John, from John to the churches and then to us today.  Apostle John was converted at the age of 25. He was with JESUS in His earthly ministry, when He died and when He ascended to heaven. John suffered much persecutions from the Romans for the sake of Christ. He refused to accept Caesar as Lord, but Jesus. For this, he was banished to the island of Patmos at the age of 96 after 71 years of following the Lord. There he received the revelation from, and of the glorified Christ. "I am Alpha and Omega" Jesus confirmed His Lordship over all as the beginning and the end. Revelation 1:11 Revelation 1:12 .John wanted to see who spoke with him. (We must always endeavour to know more about Christ, we must be curious about Him) He turned and saw the glorified Christ. His appearance was indescribable, His visage so overwhelming.  The experience of the mount of Transfiguration came to John's mind but that was nothing compared to the way He saw Jesus this time. The overpowering presence of Jesus made John fall at His feet as a dead man, Revelation 1:17. But Jesus laid His hand on him, affirming that He is the first and the last, that is, He is all in all. He is alive forevermore because He has the keys of death and hell. He instructed John to write what he has seen, the things which are and the things which shall be. The book of Revelations is divided into 3 parts: Chapter 1: The Past Chapters 2-3: The Present Chapters 4-22: The Future A. The Majesty Of The Glorified Christ: John saw the vision of the glorified Christ. We must count ourselves fortunate to be acquainted with Him. Do we know who Jesus is? His power, glory and majesty?  {{ Revelation 1:13. "one like unto the Son of man... " Jesus is the Son of man.  Dan 7:9, 10. Jesus was no longer in the flesh where He could be weak, hungry and feel pain like every mortal. Matt 26:63-65. Jesus affirmed His position as the Son of God but the high priest saw it as blasphemy and sentenced Him to death.  Revelation 1:13. The garment of Jesus was made in heaven.

"His head and His hairs were white like wool, as white as snow... " Dan 7:9. Description of God as Ancient of days here, and that of Jesus in Revelation 1:14 are same confirming what Jesus said that: I and my Father are one. Revelation 1:14. ".....His eyes were as a flame of fire." Penetrating eyes that can see both in public and private. Hebrew 4:13. He sees all things, nothing is hid from Him. This is comfort for believers: no enemy can do anything against us, even in the dark, our Saviour's eyes will see through and He will foil every evil plan against us. We must rest in God on this assurance. Also, because He sees and knows all things, we confess all faults to Him and ask for cleansing and washing. Revelation 1:15. "And His feet like unto fine brass..." This is talking about judgment. Jesus will judge the world, His feet of brass will tread and trample sinners in His fury. Isa 63:1-4 (Sinners, you don't want to wait to partake of this terrible judgment, I beg you in God's name, turn your life over to Jesus today and begin a new life). Revelation 1:15.

Revelation 1:16-18 He had in His right hand seven stars in His right hand. This means the churches are in His hands. We are safe, nearer to God than satan. We have nothing to fear.

His sovereignty, our responsibility His faithfulness, our freedom (to choose, we're free moral agents) His power, our perseverance (waiting patiently in His keeping His promised security, our conditional security Revelation 1:16b. "…and out of His mouth went a sharp, two edged sword, judgment of God is on all those who don't live right, who refuse to repent. He knows our work. Revelation 2:12-16. Revelation 1:16c. "...and His countenance was as the sun that shines in His strength." Acts 26:13-15. When our enemies encounter the power of the almighty, they will even be transformed. His right hand is great, mighty and powerful to save and deliver.  "I am the first and the last" the power of Jesus is greater than that of our enemies. Revelation 1:18:Jesus has the key of hell and death. What will He do with the key? Jesus has the power to bind death threatening His children. He sets open door before His children which no man can shut. Door of greatness, blessing, etc. And He shuts the door of problems, sorrow, pain, etc. When He locks the door of problems, He doesn't give the key to the enemies. He keeps it secure.  vs 6.
