JOHN SAW THE FACE OF JESUS: Revelation 1:16 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. (NKJV)

On the 4th day of creation recorded in Genesis 1, the Word of God states that our creator spoke and the sun and moon appeared from nothing. One of the most amazing verses in the Bible is v. 16 the last 5 words, “He made the stars also”.

There are 100 billion stars just in our Milky Way Galaxy. Among those many stars, our Sun is an average ‘yellow’ star. It is in the middle as far as size, temperature, and brightness. Just to give you a bit of perspective on some neighbors. In the Orion constellation, there are two stars of note. RIGEL is 15,000 times brighter than our Sun, and thus hotter and so on. ANTARES is 36 million times bigger!

At the center, or core of our Sun things are incredibly hot. The atoms stripped of there outer electrons are so densely packed it is absolutely dark and intensely hot. In fact, it is 16 million degrees centigrade. How hot is that? Well, a piece of the Sun the size of a pinhead that was in Oklahoma City — would kill you here in your seat this morning because of the heat radiating from it! The energy radiated from the Sun in one second is more than all the energy used on the Earth since creation!

But, with that in mind look again at Revelation 1:16: • and his countenance [was] as the sun shineth in his strength. (KJV) • His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance. (NIV) • and His face was like the sun shining in its strength. (NASB)

So, on a Sunday, 1,900 years ago on Patmos, a barren speck of rock, just 16 miles square and 15 miles from nowhere in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea – John saw the face of Jesus! And what did it do? It flattened Him.

JOHN WAS SEEING JESUS IN HIS MAJESTY

  1. But… Sunday isn’t the Lord God, The Great I AM’s day. Especially back then. His day is the Sabbath, Saturday*. ? Why would you say he was worshipping on “Sunday, the Lord’s day”? The forth commandment says to keep the Sabbath (Saturday) for him. Their first day of the week back then was Sunday. I’m truly confused by that. Can you explain that statement please?

  2. Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

  4. Amen! God bless, and every single day a individual opens their eyes they should give glory to God through Jesus Christ Holy name! Amen!
    We are all descendants of Abraham. Being Jewish is not a genetic disposition. Being jewish is a transformation, just as being circumcised is. Yes! One can be reborn! Yes! One can be circumcised physically, and then spiritually. I know! I have been blessed so. Live by the 10! Love thy neighbor as I do, even in the face of the devil which is the virus in ways. Satan lives through the sin of man! Know what I know that God enact his grace and knowledge unto and into you! Jesus is the key! I love you all! Be blessed and we will meet HIM soon!

  5. God reveals Himself. He revealed His heart when He spoke the Ten Commandments, for from the heart the mouth speaks.

    God revealed His mind when He wrote His covenant with His own finger upon stone.

    God revealed His Soul when He made His Word flesh and sent His Son to dwell with man. Those Ten Commandments is who God is.

    The Father and The Son are one. Jesus is the image and likeness of The Father.

    Jesus is The Law that hung on the cross, and The Law written upon the heart.

    We are in the image and likeness of God. To dwell in the Spirit of God we apply the Ten Commandments as directed in Deut. 6:8-9. To dwell in the love of Jesus we keep His Sermon on the Mount. We learn to live by every Word of God.

    Mercy is found with those who love Him and 'keep' His Commandments. This (The Law and Testimony) is the beginning of the Armour of God. Put on (keep) The Commandments and He will teach you to do them. Spread The Word. America cannot win without Her God and your love, faith, and labour. Jesus is Lord and King.

    It is important for you to understand who you are. Man created in the image of God.
