THE FAITHFUL WITNESS; (Rev. 1:5 – Part 1)
In the days of trial you need someone you can trust and rely on. You need someone who is a rock. Jesus Christ is described as the One who gives us Grace and peace. He is described as, “the faithful witness. In Rev. 1:5, John reflects upon Psalm 89. God the Son is fully described in His threefold office of Prophet, Priest, and King here. In verses 36 and 37 it says,
“His seed shall endure forever, And his throne as the sun before Me; 37 It shall be established forever, like the moon, Even like the faithful witness in the sky.” (Psalm 89:36:37)
In this Psalm, the Psalmist talks about the endurance of the sun and the moon. The sun and moon are “faithful” witnesses in the sky, in that they never cease to give light to the earth. Even when dark clouds appear on the earth, the sun shines and is present behind the scenes. As we look up every night, the moon is always there. The sun and moon are stable, they have been set in place by Almighty God.
Jesus Christ is the faithful witness (Rev.1:5). He is as sure as the sun and moon, described in Psalm 89. Reliable and dependable is His name. Jesus came to bear witness to the truth (John 18:37). He is Jesus Christ the anointed, and appointed Saviour. He is the “faithful witness.” (Rev.1;5).
