Sunday: I Fell at His Feet as Dead — 5 Comments

  1. While today's lesson is about the proper attitude we should have in the presence of God there is another interesting thing about Rev 1:13-18 that we shouldn't overlook. After John prostrated himself in fear the Lord said to him, "Do not be afraid" (Rev 1:17 NKJV). I have found eight other places in the New Testament were Jesus says the same thing to his saints. That says a lot about God and even more about us His sheep.

  2. Forerunner Commentary responds to Rev. 1:17 like this...."Relax, I am indeed the Eternal God, but I am also Jesus, your friend, whom you saw die and then rise from the dead. Look this is what it is like to have eternal life! I now have all the power over life and death." I like this wording.

  3. What can we learn from the reaction of the saints of old when they met God?

    Job is described as a "righteous man," yet he felt the need to "repent in dust and ashes" when He met God.

    John was the faithful "beloved" disciple of the Lord Jesus, yet he fell at His feet "as dead."

    What about you and I?

    Should we feel pretty good -- after all, we have been born again and are not nearly as sinful as those sinners out there?

    If we do feel that way, might that indicate that it's been a long time since we had a real encounter with Jesus?

    • Yes, and probably because we haven't had a good serious look at our own lives in comparison to Jesus.

      Didn't you basically paraphrase the Laodicean message in your last paragraph?

    • Thought provoking, Inge. When I think about myself, I think about "measured righteousness". Am I comparing my holiness with others base on what type of sin that I have committed. Maybe public vs. private? I believe we are groomed to think that our biblical truths, health laws, prophetic inspirations allows us to be holy by association with these things or the organization that endorses these ideals. Though they are relevant, when we really encounter God we realize that we, despite our attempts, are nothing.

      Holiness and true worship to me is acceptance of his awesomeness through faith and because he is so awesome and did what he did for my soul, I will choose to worship him with the best I got. Jesus blood will make it a worthy sacrifice
