The Book of Revelation 1:15

Fine Brass

“And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace;” (Rev 1:15a KJV)

The feet of fine brass is in contrast with the feet of the statue in Daniel.

33 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.

34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.

35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.”

(Dan 2:33-35 KJV)

The feet of this statue crumbled, but the feet of our Lord is like fine brass refined in a furnace- strong and stable.

Voice of Waters

“and his voice as the sound of many waters.” (Rev 1:15b KJV)

Waters that flow over a waterfall makes a loud rumbling sound that you can almost feel through the ground. The sound of waters crashing on the rocks of a beach does the same. It’s a loud, consistent, attention-getting sound. The voice of Jesus wasn’t like a sound we would make. It wasn’t the sound of an ordinary person. It was a powerful sound that demanded attention. His voice is powerful just as He is powerful. When He speaks, we will listen. John knew he was in the presence of someone majestic. He knew he was in the presence of God. Jesus spoke with authority and His words are sure.
