God the Father gave Jesus his Son the revelation.
However, it did not end there. Jesus “…made it known…” (Rev 1:1). There is much
wonder in this thought of God making things known to humanity. This is the point
of creating the universe as such a spectacular stage. It was so that, on this stage,
God could make himself known to the one creature he had made in his own image and
likeness. It is of worshipful interest that Jesus’ place in the triunity of God
is to make the Father known. He is the Word of God who makes God’s thoughts known;
he is the image who makes the invisible God known; he is the radiance that makes
the glory of God know. This is all through Scripture, but Jesus’ words on this matter
make it all so beautifully clear: “No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does
not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that
I have heard from my Father I have made known to you” (John 15:15). The
book of Revelation is Jesus taking what he heard from the Father and making it
known to us. Let us worship him by seeking to know what he has made known.
