THEME: PILLAR OF FIRE
“I saw still another mighty angel coming down from heaven, clothed with a cloud. And a rainbow was on his head, his face was like the sun, and his feet like pillars of fire. He had a little book open in his hand. And he set his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land,”
-When the Lamb opened the seventh seal, John saw seven angels who stand before the Lord. The angels were given seven trumpets which they blew and observed diverse effects. After the sixth angel blew his trumpet, a mighty angel came down from heaven having authority and stood; one foot on the earth and the other in the sea. God’s righteous judgement; judges both the land and the sea, and His mercies endures forever. He was clothed with a cloud which symbolizes divine presence. A rainbow was seen on his head which reminds us of God’s promise to man after the flood; a covenant of God’s mercy amidst judgement. His face was like the sun with a radiant countenance; like the one Moses had when he went to get the ten commandments at the top of mount Sinai. His feet like pillars of fire which reminds us of the burning bush when Moses was instructed to remove his shoes for the place he was standing on was holy ground. God is Holy and calls us to be holy for His holiness endures forever. The description fully fits the divine presence of God, that reminds us of His power and mercy. The seventh seal follows to reveal the temple of God in heaven; having the ark of the covenant inside. Further a declaration of God’s authority over the kingdoms of the earth and power of our Lord Jesus Christ who rules and reigns forever and ever.
