By Don Ruhl

John was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day when he suddenly heard a loud voice behind him, like someone blasting on a trumpet. He did what we would do, John turned around and saw a magnificent sight,

Then I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands, and in the midst of the seven lampstands One like the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band (Revelation 1.12–13). 

Picture that in your mind! Here, and in the following sentences, the Bible gives us a glimpse of Jesus in His glory! Keep reading the text to see more of what John saw and how it affected him.

Questions:

  • How would this vision affect you?
  • Do you realize that someday you shall see Jesus in His glorified state?
