The vision of Christ revealed to John was clear and detailed.
John wrote down an accurate record of every intricate detail to make sure that readers of every generation would behold the One who called Himself the “First and the Last” (Rev.1:17). What a glorious privilege to partake in what cannot been seen with natural eyes.
“Then I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands, 13 and in the midst of the seven lampstands Onelike the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band. 14 His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes like a flame of fire; 15 His feet were like fine brass, as if refined in a furnace, and His voice as the sound of many waters;16 He had in His right hand seven stars, out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword, and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength.17 And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me,[h] “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last.” Revelation 1:12 – 17
Looking at the meticulous description of this spectacular vision, you can get caught up in trying to figure out the different parts, rather that stand in awe, amazement and wonder at the description of His presence.
The Book of Daniel has similar descriptions of God. Daniel described the “Ancient of days,” as having “ hair on His head was like pure wool.” John has used a similar statement to illustrate what he saw. He also compared the eyes of Christ to “lamps of fire,” just like Daniel in Daniel 10:6.
