Re:Verse reading–Revelation 1 (day seven)
“Having turned, I saw. . . one like the son of man. . .and his face was like the sun shining in its strength”–v 12, 13, 16.
There were moments for the disciples, but only moments, when they saw the glory of Christ. The Transfiguration is one example. Jesus praying, and His glory began to shine out in brilliant white light. (Matthew 17) The day He calmed the storm, His resurrection appearances and ascension–all were momentary glimpses of the truth.
Most days weren’t like that. Their physical eyes saw only physical reality. Like us, they were vision impaired, seeing problems and dangers, but not the All-Sufficient Christ!
“Blessed are you, Simon, God has REVEALED it to you” said Jesus after Peter confessed Him as the Christ. (Matthew 16). When we study REVELATION, we are seeking the same grace. Lord, open our eyes to your glory and purpose. Help us to see eternal and invisible things. We need spiritual eyes.
