I was just looking through my facebook Homepage, and i saw a status from the Jesus Daily Page that reminded me of a photo i got from one of my friends weeks ago. The photo above is the photo posted by the Jesus Daily page on facebook. Its very similar to the original copy of the photo my friend showed me which had a very interesting story behind it.
The photo above, is the photo my friend showed me. It is a copy of the original of a photo taken by a christian man when he was on a plane. I’m going to narrate the story my friend told me about the photo because i think it is amazing!
My friend went to a church somewhere in spain and there was a visiting speaker who came along with this photograph. He put it up for members of the congregation to look at and asked them what they thought it was. Many of them were confused as they couldn’t really see it clearly(including my friend).
He told them the story behind it. He was travelling somewhere with his fellow christian friend to minister at a church and then suddenly on the plane there was a problem. The plane started to move uncontrollably(i think it was because of bad weather) like it was going to crash and everyone on it was convinced they were all going to die. The faces of everyone on the plane were full of fear except the 2 christian men on it. Their attitude was, ‘We’re going to see Jesus finally’. However, one of the men wondered why this would happen to them if they were going somewhere to do the work of God; so he prayed to God. He had a camera on Him, so he thought to himself, ‘At least if i took a photograph of how it was outside of the plane then my family would know what was going on’; so he took a photograph with his camera.
Eventually, the turbulence on the plane stopped, and all the passengers survived. The man took his camera to a photography studio and they printed all the photos he had on it for him. When he came to collect the photos they had printed they told him all the photos were alright except a certain photo which appeared blurry.
He took the photo home anyway, and after sometime, he remembered what happened on the plane and how he took the photo of the clouds from his window, when he thought he was going to die.
This is the story behind the photo. I’m not making any assertions about anything, but just look at that photo. For me, it reminds me of Jesus. The resemblance is striking! I love the way His hands are open wide reminding me of Matthew 11:28: Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.]
Somehow, the photo also reminds me of the fact that God is the father of all Light. He is Light Himself. The photo doesn’t show any face. Although i know the majesty of Jesus that we will see later on is far more beautiful than this, this photo reminds me of the majesty and splendor of Jesus, the Lamb of God, the Holy One, the I AM. Looks like He is wearing a robe to me. All of these resemblances remind me of Revelation 19:11-15.
Revelation 19:11-15 (AMP) : 11 After that I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse [appeared]! The One Who was riding it is called Faithful (Trustworthy, Loyal, Incorruptible, Steady) and True, and He passes judgment and wages war in righteousness (holiness, justice, and uprightness).
12 His eyes [blaze] like a flame of fire, and on His head are many kingly crowns (diadems); and He has a title (name) inscribed which He alone knows or can understand.
13 He is dressed in a robe dyed by dipping in blood, and the title by which He is called is The Word of God.
14 And the troops of heaven, clothed in fine linen, dazzling and clean, followed Him on white horses.
15 From His mouth goes forth a sharp sword with which He can smite (afflict, strike) the nations; and He will shepherd and control them with a staff (scepter, rod) of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath and indignation of God the All-Ruler (the Almighty, the Omnipotent).
16 And on His garment (robe) and on His thigh He has a name (title) inscribed, KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
