"...His eyes as lamps of fire..." (Revelation 1:14)

  • So full of life is the Son of God (John 1:4), that His eyes appeared as lamps of fire, flashing light. He it is who says, "I will guide thee with Mine eye." (Psalm 32:8; Isaiah 30:21). Daniel could bear the gaze, but his companions felt that those eyes burned into their very souls, and they hid from His gaze. (SNH 178-179)

"...feet like in colour to polished brass..." (Revelation 1:15)

"...the voice of His words like the voice of a multitude."

  • To the ears of Daniel, accustomed by long experience to heavenly sounds, the voice of the "One Man" was as the voice of the multitude, or as the sound of many waters, clear and beautiful. (Psalm 89:15). To human ears, dull of hearing, it is like thunder. The Jews, at the time that the Greeks came to Christ, had a similar experience to that of the companions of Daniel. As Christ sat in the temple court, the lightning played about His head and the voice, which to Him was the voice of God, to them sounded like the crash of a thunder bolt. (John 12:20-30) (SNH 179)
