Re:Verse reading–Revelation 1 (day one)
“When I saw Him, I fell at his feet as a dead man.”–v 17
The supernatural world is not tame. The invisible realities that created the visible world are huge and high and fearful. People who see Angels or any appearance of God all have the same reaction. Conviction of sin. Overwhelming fear.
Isaiah “saw the Lord, high and lifted up”. Ultimately encouraging, the immediate impact of the vision was to make Isaiah acutely aware of his own sinfulness–particularly the use of his lips (i e I have talked about for such foolish, silly things).
When John saw the resurrected and glorified Christ, he fainted. Full system shut down!
People often say, “I want to talk to God, I want to ask Him a question!” Usually I think to myself, “No, my brother, I don’t think you really do.” People who have actually seen the Lord tell a different story.
