Revelation Lesson 24 Day 4 — Faithful
The Book of Revelation continues to connect the dots left for us throughout scripture.
9. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the Faithful and True Witness.
“Write this letter to the angel of the church in Laodicea. This is the message from the one who is the Amen—the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God’s new creation:” (NLT)
He is faithful to all the promises He has made.
He is true to execute all the judgments He has warned about.
Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the Word of God.
John 1:1-5 Jesus is the Word of God.
1 John 1:1 Jesus is the Word of Life.
John 1:14 So the Word became human and made his home among us.
“He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.” NLT
His eyes are a flame of fire.
Some years ago while praying, I saw a vision of Jesus with eyes like a flame of fire. I’d read through Revelation before, but I didn’t remember the imagery, so it troubled me.
A month or so later, I was so excited when I read this verse. Now every time I read it, I remember of the encouragement I received during that time of prayer.
On His head were many crowns.
My imagination can’t visualize that. Are they stacked on top of each other, or linked together side by side, or some other way? Ancient crowns come in many configurations. Most can’t easily be worn at the same time.
I love that God gave Jesus a secret name.
We have that in common. I love this entire passage. The complex imagery, His attributes…just wow!
11: Jesus is so much more than those prints we saw in Sunday School.
He’s not just that gentle man sitting on a rock surrounded by children. He goes to war for us with armies of angels. His very words, which we can use, too, are spiritual warfare. He is worthy of all worship, all honor, all glory and all power. He is worthy of all crowns. Blessed be the (secret) name of the Lord.
