1 Then I saw another extremely powerful messenger descending out of heaven. He wore a cloud wrapped around him, and a rainbow was covering his head. His face shone like the sun, and his legs blazed like columns of fire. 2 In his hand, he held a little scroll that had been unrolled. He placed his right foot on the sea and his left foot on dry land; 3 then he shouted with a voice that sounded like a roaring lion. When he cried out, the seven thunders answered with their own rumbling voices.
I can't imagine what this was like for John to witness. He had extraordinary relationship with Jesus when He was on the earth and I'm sure that relationship continued and probably grew stronger during his exile. Yet, to witness these things and to write them down. It had to be amazing.
