The predominant aim of revelation, I believe, is the setting forth of the splendours of the Son of Man, & to reveal His glorious person. I also see that there are four visions of the Son of Man as He is known in the heavenly realms. We are looking at Vision 3 in this section. VISION 1. CHRIST – HEAD OF THE BODY. (Rev. 1 – 3) This reveals the empowered Son of Man as the Sovereign Administrator. ` in His right hand He held seven stars.` VISION 2. CHRIST – HEIR OF THE NATIONS. (Rev. 4 – 8: 1) This reveals the enthroned Son of Man as the Supreme Executor. `in His right hand He held the seven sealed scroll.` VISION 3. CHRIST - MEDIATOR OF GOD`S COVENANT. (Rev. 8: 2 – 13) This reveals the exalted Son of Man as the Stately Mediator in His official capacity as the Executor, Redeemer & Governor. `in His hand is a sacred censor.` The Lord Jesus Christ is, as we well know, the one Mediator between God & Man. `For there is one God & one mediator between God & men, the man Christ Jesus.` (1 Tim. 2: 5) However we may think of this only in terms of interceding for man. But a Mediator has to represent both sides. So for man there is need of an intercessor, while on God`s behalf there needs to be restitution (pay back) for those at enmity with Him, plus remuneration (reward) for those who turn to Him. Marilyn.
