Daily Service: Revelation study
Since we are reading through Revelation and I did do a post on Revelation 2 recently, I thought I would give you a quick read on part of Revelation 1. John saw God as Jesus standing in the lampstands. The lampstands represent the churches in Asia Minor but as you continue to study you will see applications for our lives today.
Revelation 1:12-14 (KJV) And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
Among the lampstands John saw Someone “like a Son of Man,” an expression used in Daniel 7:13 to refer to Christ. The description was that of a priest dressed in a long robe… with a golden sash around his chest. The whiteness of His hair corresponded to that of the Ancient of Days (cf. Dan. 7:9), a reference to God the Father. God the Son has the same purity and eternity as God the Father, as signified by the whiteness of His head and hair. The eyes like blazing fire described His piercing judgment of sin (cf. Rev. 2:18).
