Jesus Introduces Himself (in Revelation) by Gloria Furman

Here are some of the ways the crucified, risen, ascended, and enthroned Jesus describes himself in the Book of Revelation:

  • Fear not, I am the first and the last, and the living one. I died, and behold I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of Death and Hades.
  • him who holds the seven stars in his right hand, who walks among the seven golden lampstands
  • the first and the last, who died and came to life
  • him who has the sharp two-edged sword
  • the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and whose feet are like burnished bronze
  • him who has the seven spirits of God and the seven stars
  • the holy one, the true one, who has the key of David, who opens and no one will shut, who shuts and no one opens
  • the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God’s creation
  • I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.
  • I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.

  • “One of the most wonderful things about knowing God is that there’s always so much more to know, so much more to discover. Just when we least expect it, He intrudes into our neat and tidy notions about who He is and how He works.” – Joni Eareckson Tada

Verse of the Day

[God the Sovereign Savior] To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David the servant of the Lord, who spoke to the Lord the words of this song on the day that the Lord delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul. And he said: I will love You, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. — Psalm 18:1-2 (NKJV)
