Revelation 1:15

Revelation 1:15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.

Much is said in the word concerning the feet of man, as well as the feet of the Lord. Romans 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!  Luke 7:44 And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head.  In John 13, we have the beautiful story of Jesus washing the feet of the disciples. The nails that crucified the Lord were through His hands and feet. Often in the scripture, we have the indication of the feet of man being guided in the spiritual walk, such as Psalm 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

Here in this verse, the feet of the Lord are as fine brass as if they burned in a furnace.  This indicates the righteousness of God through the purification of fire.  Jesus, who knew no sin, became sin on the cross, and His feet were nailed to the cross.  Through the purification of the judgment of sin on Calvary, the feet of our Lord are now pictured as pure righteousness.  It is with righteousness that Jesus crushes Satan under His feet.  It is with righteousness that sin is forever crushed under the feet of every believer.   Through righteousness, every word of the preacher will be judged and rewarded.  How beautiful are the feet of our Lord arrayed in such righteousness?  1Corinthians 15:25-27 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.  Righteousness is the real weapon against any evil or darkness and even death. 

His voice was the sound of many waters.  Many interpretations are given to this phrase.  Some say it is the multitude of voices declaring the gospel to the world; Romans 10:18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world. Others say this is His voice thundering against His foes.  What we do know is that the voice of the Lord carries majesty, strength, and great power.  The sound of the voice of the Lord is not quiet.  His voice is loud enough to shake the earth. Joel 3:16 The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel. Hebrews 12:26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.  So, we can see how the voice of the Lord would be heard throughout the whole earth by the preaching of the gospel by the people of God, and we can see how His voice would be effective to every known kingdom of the earth to cause those kingdoms to shake and fall.  

Yet as loud as His voice is, we have trouble hearing Him in our ears.   Repeatedly, we will see the phrase, “He that hath an ear to hear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying.”  Why would we silence His voice in our life?  How could we turn a deaf ear to such a voice?  This should indicate how strong the power of our own desire and ambition is to squelch the volume of His voice. How many ask the question, how can I hear from God? The real question is, how can we not hear His voice? He is thundering from heaven to the inhabitants of the earth.  He is speaking in ways that anyone can hear.  All we must do is open our spiritual ears to hear what He is saying.  Maybe the answer is that we are deafening our ears, so we don’t have to hear His voice and obey what He says to do. 

The prayer is, Lord Jesus, through your righteousness, let your voice be heard as the sound of many waters.  May I not only hear your voice but obey with my whole heart.
