Enrich in power and authority, John the divine saw the incredible revelation of Christ and was overwhelm by the sheer magnitude of his awesomeness. Christ own declaration satisfies justification. Behold, he is coming amid the clouds, and every eye will see him.

Alpha and Omega

This revelation is about the revealing of Jesus was given to his servant john and passed on to believers of God in all places and in all times, the process of revelation is through a message given to the churches.

The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servant’s things which must shortly happen;

And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, fear not; I am the first and the last:
I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
Here we see the revelation of Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first-begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Revelation 1:5.

This garment down to the foot is a priestly robe, a robe of authority. This "Son of man" is Jesus who is in the midst of the church. This golden girdle is saying that this is God. John was at the transfiguration of Jesus and had seen a glimpse of what He would be like then.
We are looking here through John's eyes as he describes what he sees.
Christ is pictured as a judge and Conqueror over the Antichrist and the nations of the earth who have gathered together for the Battle of Armageddon. His eyes of fire symbolise truthful discernment.

His head and hairs white like wool and as snow may signify his majesty, purity, and eternity. His countenance was like the sun when it shines clearly and powerfully; its strength too bright and dazzling for mortal eyes to behold. The one who walks in the midst of the lamb stand said these words.
Christ has pre-eminence over death, Colossians 1:18
I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last. I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. Meaning the first and the last.

Christ is the legitimate heir of this world, the whole world and its domain belong to him. He won it back through his death on the cross, after Adam had lost it through sin to Satan. Christ is the rightful ruler who is far above all principality.

white hair goes with Daniel's description of the Ancient of Days. Jesus is the source of all light. We know that in heaven there is no need for the sun and moon, because of the presence of the Light which is Jesus. God is a consuming fire. We saw Him in the burning bush, the fiery finger of God that burned the Ten Commandments in the rock, and we are told that Jesus baptises with fire. This fire of the Holy Ghost cleanses us inside by burning out the old self-making way for the new. Jesus' eyes have the look full of wisdom, the brass indicates the great strength and steadfastness of Jesus.

Brass also means judgement and Jesus are the Judge. Jesus here is standing in the midst of the churches. Judgement begins at the house of God. Jesus has overcome Satan and the demons. We know the Word says that Satan, his demons, and all who reject Jesus have been judged; and they truly will spend an eternity in hell. The sword represents the power and authority of Christ's words by which the world will be judged Revelation. 19 v.15 The powerful light surrounding Christ was so blinding that John compared it to the powerful rays of the sun in all its strength.

In 2 Thessalonians 2 v.8, Paul tells us that Christ will destroy the Antichrist with the brightness of His coming. Later, in the Book of Revelation chapter 22, John tells us that in the New Jerusalem there will be no need of the sun, for the Lord God will be our light. This vision of Jesus overwhelmed John. The manifested glory of God was like a thousand suns and moons all in one, John had never seen Jesus like this. He was so overcome with the vision of Christ that he: "fell at his feet as dead." When you really catch a vision of Jesus, you, too, will be totally overwhelmed, when you really understand His awesome power and majesty. Behold he cometh with clouds. Referring to the glory of his second coming.
When Christ return, it will not be a secret thing, because every eye shall see him, and those who were part of the murdering plot will be resurrected to see Christ.
