Revelations Chapter One (Part VI)

By Odon Bulamba (23rd Feb 01)

Revelation 1:15, His feet were like burnished bronze, when it has been made to glow in a furnace, and His voice was like the sound of many waters.

What do the feet represent in the church of God? What do you do with your feet? Your feet are the foundation for your life. They help you to walk, run, work and play, so feet are essential for life. If you lose your balance your feet are there to help you stand up. When you have a foundation in Jesus Christ you must shine because we are all members of His body, but first we must know where our foundation is?

His voice was like the sound of many waters. This means that when He speaks everybody will listen. Jesus said, “Before I come back, everybody will hear the good news and that the whole world will know the gospel. To know it or not, you will know the name of Jesus. You will hear the sound of many waters even if you are miles away.

When the first church started the fruits they produced were original because it came from God. People were filled with the Holy Spirit and would sing, perform miracles and do just about anything. This is written in the book of Acts. After this the revolution started. People stopped singing for joy because the satanic revolution began. Those who still sung for joy were separated and then people started abusing them, “he is shouting like an animal in the forest”! We cannot live this way we must respect everyone.

Little by little another group will say, “there are too many halleluiahs and it’s giving me a headache, stop that shouting! In our church we must be polite and respectful, so you are not welcome here anymore, get out of our church”. Churches separate because of physical reasons and then man starts making rules. “Oscar is speaking in tongues which is from the devil”. The Pastor will tell Oscar to stop otherwise he will not come back to this church. However if Oscar’s offering is a large sum the Pastor will tell him to be quiet. This is how servants of God quench the Holy Spirit; they have left the foundation that was the feet of Jesus. It’s like cutting your nails; you cannot put them back. That is why there are so many denominations whose foundation is not in the word of God, so they resort to theories.

Revelation 1:16, In His right hand He held 7 stars, and out of His mouth came a sharp two-edged sword: and His face was like the sun shining in its strength.

The Bible says that this person held 7 stars in his right hand and a two-edged sword came out of his Mouth and His face was shining like the sun. We know God created stars. If you are called a star people want to know you. You are only human but have been given values over others because of what you are doing.

Jesus had 7 stars in His right hand. They give off a small light to enlighten the world. Jesus said that, ‘if you have faith as big a mustard seed that is enough”. Jesus put the stars in His right hand to protect them, but a double-edged sword came from His mouth.

As you know in the book of Hebrew it talks about this double-edged sword.

Hebrews 4:12, for the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged Sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrows, and is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

The word of God is living and is sharper than any other two-edged sword. Its role is to separate soul and spirit. Its role can be to separate body and spirit. This came out of Jesus’ mouth. You must know how to separate your body from your spirit. Some people live as Christians but mix their Christianity with the world. They neglect the soul by mixing it with the flesh. You must separate the two.

His face was like the sun shining in its strength. This is a picture of the Old Testament with Moses. Try to be the light for others and know what kind of fuel and tank to use. If you use up all your oil that’s your problem, but try to have a lot of oil stored that comes from the Lord. If you sow a seed of corn today make sure you reap corn. Jesus saw the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost. On the day of harvest the same events will happen as in Pentecost. If 3000 people were saved, at the end there will also be a big number. If ten people were speaking in tongues that day, the crop will be great. Many people don’t accept the gifts the first church had, but this is what we need to have on the day of harvest.

Beans have different colours. If you plant a red bean you will reap a red bean. If they are white beans, then you will reap white beans. Although the beans spend many days in the field the day of harvest will be the same. You will never say, “I planted white beans to reap yellow beans”. This is the confusion in the church today. Jesus gave us the Holy Spirit but now the church wants to use their own rules and standards. People want to correct what God did by taking away things and adding more to it. Who are you to correct God? Who are you to think that what God has done is not good? That is why on that day the truth will be revealed and when Jesus’ mouth will be opened, it will be like a double-edged sword and a sword can cut on both sides. If I use the word of God on Oscar, it will come also on me.
