The glory of Christ reflects His victory! John wrote the revelations he received from the Lord. In a vision, He laid eyes on one like the Son of Man. The Son of Man is a messianic designation—and He is related to the Ancient of Days (God). Because John used the word “like,” meaning “similar to,” we know there was a change from this Son of Man from the one John knew prior to Jesus’ death and resurrection. This Son of Man was glorified. John looked upon the One who reigns over history. Christ’s glory reflected and proclaimed His victory over death and vividly announced His authority. Our Lord is triumphant over death and reigns forevermore!
