- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
1:14 His head and his hair - That is, the hair of his head, not his whole head. Were white as white wool - Like the Ancient of Days, represented in Daniel's vision, #Dan 7:9|. Wool is commonly supposed to be an emblem of eternity. As snow - Betokening his spotless purity. And his eyes as a flame of fire - Piercing through all things; a token of his omniscience.
Re 1:14 His head and [his] hairs [were] white. White is the color of purity and of triumph. The idea here is not age but heavenly glory. His eyes [were] as a flame of fire. Bright, piercing, all seeing, flashing light, and also a consuming fire of the wicked.

The resurrected Jesus could appear in any countenance he wants to be like in order to bring about the message to the person he is manifesting. Here the message is clear: to comfort John's heart. Only the king, the wisdom bearer, with vehement passion could direct the old apostle's step what should be done next under the persecution tempest.

I think it's sad how everyone has the immage of God in their head as a man with long hair, little do most people know, a gay man drew that picture and homosexuality is total contrary to the word of God. People try to argue with me and they joke about God and say he must be albino but that's terrible because I'm sure that hurts him and they should be the one who shoved the crown on him or the one roman solider who beat him until he was un-noticable. I know I have tons of spelling errors but that's what i think!
I LOVE JESUS!!!!!!!:)
