Image Title: One Like a Son of Man

Scripture Reference:

Description: This image depicts John falling at the feet of the Lord, described as "like a son of man" with a face like the sun, a two-edged sword coming from his mouth, a flowing robe, seven stars in his right hand, and standing amid seven lampstands. At the top is John's vision of the heavenly throne room. In the top-left corner an angel stands at the altar with a censer of burning incense, whose smoke rises up with the prayers of the saints to God, as seven angels with seven trumpets prepare to announce the coming of calamitous happenings. To the bottom-left an angel wrapped in a cloud, with a rainbow over his head, a face like the sun, and legs like pillars of fire instructs John to eat the little scroll. To the bottom-right the woman's baby is saved from the beast upon his birth and the dragon is defeated by the angel Michael.
