The right hand of the Lord:
The hand that directs the ministers, gives them authority, power and influence on the earth. Without Christ there is no power. The right hand of the Lord always symbolizes strength and power (Psalm 21:8). It represents favour (Psalm 44:3), honour and dignity (Psalm 110:1).
Seven Stars: Seven Churches
The Seven Stars are ministers of the Seven Churches. These Seven Stars are also mentioned in Rev.1:20 and are referred to as Angels. The Angels here are simply messengers. They are sometimes considered guardian Angels, one for each church. Others argue that it refers to the spirit of the Church. The Pastor of a Church brings messages from God to the people, so the Seven Stars can be interpreted as a messengers to the churches, bringing directives from God to the people.
The ministers of the gospel suffer so much opposition, but Christ holds them in His right hand, giving them honour and dignity, instead of dishonour. He surrounds them with favour. Though they go through persecution, His promise is that He will never let them go. Till the very end, He will be there, upholding them (Matthew 28:20).
A sharp two-edged sword
The word of the Lord is described a two-edged sword (Hebrews 4:12). It is sharp enough to penetrate the hardest soul and spirit, joints and marrow. It is a sword of justice against the enemy. It is the sword from the mouth of Christ which overcomes the enemy of our souls. There is a place where there will be no more crying. “He will wipe every tear from their eyes…” Please meditate on Revelation 21: 4.
The Sun shining in its strength
When the sun shines down on earth its light is seen everywhere. It is so powerful that this earth cannot exist without it. In its full glory, you must protect your eyes to look at it. What John saw was so bright, He described it as the “sun shining in his strength.”
