The pronouns John uses in Revelation 1:17-18 are so very pronounced to me today. The contrast between the petrified John and THE GLORIFIED JESUS comforts me:
(17) When i saw HIM, i fell down at HIS feet like a dead man. Then HE laid HIS right hand on me and said, "Don't be afraid!" I AM the first and the last, (18) the living one. I was dead, but now I AM alive forever. I have the keys of death and hell.
