THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST

Chapter 1 - Part C
His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame
of fire; (Rev 1:14)
I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was
white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame,
and his wheels as burning fire. (Dan 7:9)
Then I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man clothed in linen, whose loins
were girded with fine gold of Uphaz: His body also was like the beryl, and his face as the
appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in colour
to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude. (Dan 10:5-6)
And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the
appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I
saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about. (Eze 1:27)
Then I beheld, and lo a likeness as the appearance of fire: from the appearance of his loins even
downward, fire; and from his loins even upward, as the appearance of brightness, as the colour
of amber. (Eze 8:2)

Christ is perfect and we have access to that same perfection in earnest form ‘till we all come in
the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the
measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ’.

And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;
(Heb 5:9)
That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. (2Ti 3:17)
Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I
may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. (Phi 3:12)
Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect
man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: (Eph 4:13)
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they
shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. (Isa 1:18)

Each of us must come to see and experience the consuming fire of God…

Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; (Heb 5:8)
And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD
opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses
and chariots of fire round about Elisha. (2Ki 6:17)
And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip
the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. (Luk 16:24)
The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into
the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of
the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: (Rev 14:10)
And the glory of the LORD abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days: and the
seventh day he called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud. And the sight of the glory of the
LORD was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel. And
Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and gat him up into the mount: and Moses was in the
mount forty days and forty nights. (Exo 24:16-18)
For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God. (Deu 4:24)
Understand therefore this day, that the LORD thy God is he which goeth over before thee; as a
consuming fire he shall destroy them, and he shall bring them down before thy face: so shalt
thou drive them out, and destroy them quickly, as the LORD hath said unto thee. (Deu 9:3)
For our God is a consuming fire. (Heb 12:29)
And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and
he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. (Exo 3:2)
He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have
no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God. (Dan 3:25)
Then take of them again, and cast them into the midst of the fire, and burn them in the fire; for
thereof shall a fire come forth into all the house of Israel. (Eze 5:4)
Yea, I will gather you, and blow upon you in the fire of my wrath, and ye shall be melted in the
midst thereof. (Eze 22:21)

…Fire…in the midst of the fire…in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks.

And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound
of many waters. (Rev 1:15)
I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was
white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame,
and his wheels as burning fire. (Dan 7:9)
Then I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man clothed in linen, whose loins
were girded with fine gold of Uphaz: His body also was like the beryl, and his face as the
appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in colour to
polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude. (Dan 10:5-6)
And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the
appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I
saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about. (Eze 1:27)
Then I beheld, and lo a likeness as the appearance of fire: from the appearance of his loins even
downward, fire; and from his loins even upward, as the appearance of brightness, as the colour
of amber. (Eze 8:2)
And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and his voice was
like a noise of many waters: and the earth shined with his glory. (Eze 43:2)
True of Christ…and His faithful elect.

His body also was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as
lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of his
words like the voice of a multitude. (Dan 10:6)
And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf's foot: and
they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass. (Eze 1:7)

All of which symbolizes our walk in the flesh that results in our glory.

But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the
same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. (2Co 3:18)
Therefore shall the Lord, the Lord of hosts, send among his fat ones leanness; and under his
glory he shall kindle a burning like the burning of a fire. (Isa 10:16)
They are all grievous revolters, walking with slanders: they are brass and iron; they are all
corrupters. (Jer 6:28)
Son of man, the house of Israel is to me become dross: all they are brass, and tin, and iron, and
lead, in the midst of the furnace; they are even the dross of silver. Therefore thus saith the Lord
GOD; Because ye are all become dross, behold, therefore I will gather you into the midst of
Jerusalem. As they gather silver, and brass, and iron, and lead, and tin, into the midst of the
furnace, to blow the fire upon it, to melt it; so will I gather you in mine anger and in my fury,
and I will leave you there, and melt you. Yea, I will gather you, and blow upon you in the fire
of my wrath, and ye shall be melted in the midst thereof. As silver is melted in the midst of the
furnace, so shall ye be melted in the midst thereof; and ye shall know that I the LORD have
poured out my fury upon you. (Eze 22:18-22)
Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some
strange thing happened unto you: (1Pe 4:12)
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but
was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. (Heb 4:15)
Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all
longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.
(1Ti 1:16)
And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee
before the world was. (Joh 17:5)

Glory received only after our walk wherein the world, the flesh within us is judged, wherein we
have heard ‘his voice as the sound of many waters’.

His body also was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as
lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of his
words like the voice of a multitude. (Dan 10:6)
When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, and he causeth the
vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth
the wind out of his treasures. (Jer 10:13)
He shall pour the water out of his buckets, and his seed shall be in many waters, and his king
shall be higher than Agag, and his kingdom shall be exalted. (Num 24:7)
He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters. He delivered me from my
strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me. (Psa 18:16-17)
The voice of the LORD is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the LORD is upon
many waters. The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is full of majesty. The
voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars; yea, the LORD breaketh the cedars of Lebanon. He
maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn. The voice of the
LORD divideth the flames of fire. The voice of the LORD shaketh the wilderness; the LORD
shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh. The voice of the LORD maketh the hinds to calve, and
discovereth the forests: and in his temple doth every one speak of his glory. The LORD sitteth
upon the flood; yea, the LORD sitteth King for ever. The LORD will give strength unto his
people; the LORD will bless his people with peace. (Psa 29:3-11)
O thou that dwellest upon many waters, abundant in treasures, thine end is come, and the
measure of thy covetousness. (Jer 51:13)

Despite our ‘body of this death’, we take comfort in knowing that ‘in him we live, move, and
have our being’ and ‘remain fruitful and full of branches by reason of many waters’.

O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? (Rom 7:24)
For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said,
For we are also his offspring. (Act 17:28)
Thy mother is like a vine in thy blood, planted by the waters: she was fruitful and full of
branches by reason of many waters. (Eze 19:10)
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine;
no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in
me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. If a
man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and
cast them into the fire, and they are burned. (Joh 15:4-6)
And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged
sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. (Rev 1:16)
And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand hath he hid me,
and made me a polished shaft; in his quiver hath he hid me; (Isa 49:2)

Through His power and salvation, we must bring the word of God ‘in the midst of our rebellious
house’.

The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden
candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks
which thou sawest are the seven churches. (Rev 1:20)
Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son
of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. (Mat 26:64)
Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and
thy gentleness hath made me great. (Psa 18:35)
Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house, which have eyes to see, and see
not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they are a rebellious house. Therefore, thou son
of man, prepare thee stuff for removing, and remove by day in their sight; and thou shalt
remove from thy place to another place in their sight: it may be they will consider, though they
be a rebellious house. (Eze 12:2-3)

The word of God, our sword, wielded in deceit and in truth.

And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: (Eph
6:17)
But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the
word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every
man's conscience in the sight of God. (2Co 4:2)

It is His word in us that causes ‘light to shine out of darkness’ thus giving us ‘the light of the
knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ’.

For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give
the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. (2Co 4:6)
There be many that say, Who will shew us any good? LORD, lift thou up the light of thy
countenance upon us. (Psa 4:6)
Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret sins in the light of thy countenance. (Psa
90:8)
For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright. (Psa
11:7)
Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy
countenance. (Psa 89:15)
Then the woman came and told her husband, saying, A man of God came unto me, and his
countenance was like the countenance of an angel of God, very terrible: but I asked him not
whence he was, neither told he me his name: (Jdg 13:6)
It is burned with fire, it is cut down: they perish at the rebuke of thy countenance. (Psa 80:16)
In the light of the king's countenance is life; and his favour is as a cloud of the latter rain.
(Pro 16:15)
It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they
are spirit, and they are life. (Joh 6:63)
O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the stairs, let me see thy
countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely.
(Son 2:14)
And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of
fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. And his power shall be
mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and
practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. And through his policy also he shall
cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall
destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken
without hand. (Dan 8:23-25)
For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save
them: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst
a favour unto them. (Psa 44:3)
And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying
unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: (Rev 1:17)
So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was afraid, and fell upon my face: but
he said unto me, Understand, O son of man: for at the time of the end shall be the vision.
(Dan 8:17)
Therefore I was left alone, and saw this great vision, and there remained no strength in me: for
my comeliness was turned in me into corruption, and I retained no strength. (Dan 10:8)
Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and
I am the last; and beside me there is no God. (Isa 44:6)

Bringing light out of darkness is being crucified with Christ.

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye
should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous
light: (1Pe 2:9)
To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto
God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified
by faith that is in me. (Act 26:18)
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life
which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself
for me. (Gal 2:20)
A land of darkness, as darkness itself; and of the shadow of death, without any order, and
where the light is as darkness. (Job 10:22)
But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in
thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! (Mat 6:23)
He discovereth deep things out of darkness, and bringeth out to light the shadow of death.
(Job 12:22)
The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the
shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined. (Isa 9:2)
Give glory to the LORD your God, before he cause darkness, and before your feet stumble upon
the dark mountains, and, while ye look for light, he turn it into the shadow of death, and make
it gross darkness. (Jer 13:16)
The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and
shadow of death light is sprung up. (Mat 4:16)
To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the
way of peace. (Luk 1:79)
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me
shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. (Joh 8:12)
For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
(Eph 5:8)
Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of
darkness. (1Th 5:5)
Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because
the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth. (1Jo 2:8)

Christ in us is our power, our salvation, our position…

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand
against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me. (Psa 138:7)
Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me. (Psa 139:10)

life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. (Joh

and gave up the ghost. (Joh 19:30)

and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, (Act 7:55)

And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I
am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be
given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father. (Mat 20:23)
No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him
up at the last day. (Joh 6:44)
And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given
unto him of my Father. (Joh 6:65)

…And we ‘Fear not’ because ‘herein is our love made perfect’.

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that
feareth is not made perfect in love. (1Jo 4:18)
And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye
have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it. (2Jo 1:6)
Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will
love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. (Joh 14:23)
Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as
he is, so are we in this world. (1Jo 4:17)

‘Made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment’ within each of us that begins
and ends with Christ.

For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us,
what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? (1Pe 4:17)
I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have
the keys of hell and of death. (Rev 1:18)

Christ lives in us by dying in us…

For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more,
being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. (Rom 5:10)
And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again
another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it. (Jer 18:4)

alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. (Joh 12:24)
He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. (Mat
10:39)

in his sight: (Col 1:22)
Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of
Christ in my flesh for his body's sake, which is the church: (Col 1:24)
I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily. (1Co 15:31)
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life
which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself
for me. (Gal 2:20)
Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed,
that henceforth we should not serve sin. (Rom 6:6)
From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.
(Gal 6:17)
Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might
be made manifest in our body. For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus'
sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. (2Co 4:10-11)
That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings,
being made conformable unto his death; (Phi 3:10)
Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took
part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is,
the devil; (Heb 2:14)
And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him
which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. (Mat 10:28)

…And He does so for one reason and one reason alone.

Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: (Rom 6:8)
Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. (1Th 5:10)

are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you. (2Co 13:4)

lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. (Rev

be the LORD'S. (Oba 1:21)

be hereafter; (Rev 1:19)

have been given.

by me. (Joh 14:6)
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the
only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. (Joh 1:14)

For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. (Mal 3:6)
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. (Heb 13:8)
And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes;
that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be
puffed up for one against another. (1Co 4:6)
The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden
candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven
candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches. (Rev 1:20)

‘Read, hear, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand’. ‘Come out
of her’, ‘come out from among them, and be ye separate…touch not the unclean; and I will
receive you’.

Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things
which are written therein: for the time is at hand. (Rev 1:3)
And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not
partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. (Rev 18:4)

unclean thing; and I will receive you, (2Co 6:17)
