In the previous explanation we observed the term son of man in Revelations 1:13 that it said.
and, in the midst of the seven candlesticks, one similar to the Son of Man, dressed to the feet in a long garment and girded by the chest with a gold belt.
We saw on the scene the seven candlesticks, it has the representation of the Menorah, and that this representation is directly linked to the Holy Spirit. Thus the seven fires of the seven candlesticks are related to the Spirits of God who observe all things. It is easy to understand that the reference to the Son of Man is the definition of Jesus Christ.
We can still read in Matthew 16:27
For the Son of Man will come in the glory of his Father, with his angels; and then he will give to each according to his works.
When we see the long robes, we have the question of the robes of the Justice of God. We see Revelations 3: 5
Whoever wins will be dressed in white robes, and in no way will I cross out his name from the book of life; and I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels.
And in this way we have that the garments are linked to purity.
We can read verses connected to this, in Daniel 10: 5 that says.
I looked up, and in front of me was a man dressed in linen, with a pure gold belt around his waist.
See that the man was wearing a pure gold belt in Daniel's text, and in revelations we also have a gold belt, which we can observe that Daniel and Revelations has a link of prophetic facts.
But if we continue in Revelation 1:14 we have.
His head and hair were as white as wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like a flame of fire.
And if we read in Daniel 10: 6 we have.
His body was like the beryl, his face like lightning, his eyes like burning torches, his arms and legs like the reflection of polished bronze, and his voice was like the sound of a crowd.
Note that the account in Revelations has a clear connection with the book of Daniel.
When we mention white hair we can see some verses. In Proverbs 16:31 we have.
Gray hair is a crown of splendor, and it is obtained through a just life.
And we can still read in Daniel 7: 9
"As I watched," thrones were put in place, and an elder sat down. His robe was white as snow; his hair was white as wool. His throne burned with fire, and the wheels of the throne were all glowing.
As we see Daniel is closely linked in Revelations. And we have that white hair linked to the crown of splendor, so we have a being linked to the strongest crown of splendor defined in the symbology.
We also have eyes like flames of fire.
And we can read in Revelation 2:18.
To the angel of the church at Thyatira write: These are the words of the Son of God, whose eyes are like a flame of fire and their feet like shining bronze.
Here we have clearly that we are talking about the Son of God. Whose eyes are like a flame of fire, and feet with shining bronze.
And so we can read in Revelations 1:15
His feet were like bronze in a fiery furnace and his voice like the sound of many waters.
The representation of the feet as bronze, refers to a metal without impurities, something that fire does not consume. The pure valuable metal.
In the first epistle of Peter 1: 7 we have.
This is so that it will be proven that the faith you have, much more valuable than the gold that perishes, even if refined by fire, is genuine and will result in praise, glory and honor, when Jesus Christ is revealed.
So we have feet like the metal tested in fire, that is, Jesus has proven faith. The voice remaining like the sound of many waters.
In Ezekiel 43: 2 we can read.
and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice was like the roar of waters advancing, and the land was shining with his glory.
What we have is that God has his voice as the sound of many waters. It is something that presses the environment and frightens those who hear this sound.
So here we have a vision of Christ, in his foundations of power, and purity. Showing the holiness of Christ.
This description is necessary because it is these characteristics that will be shown as Jesus having the merits, to preside over the tabernacle, and to open the seals of the objects that no one could read.
