1:15 and His feet were like burnished bronze, when it has been caused to glow in a furnace, and His voice was like the sound of many waters.

and His feet were like burnished bronze, when it has been caused to glow in a furnace,

His feet:

1. Ran and played as a child.
2. Carried Him at age twelve to the temple where He was listening and questioning the teachers - Luke 2:41-51.
3. Were wetted by the sinful woman's tears and dried by her hair all in the quest for forgiveness - Luke 7:36-50.
4. Walked up Calvary's hill where they received the crucifixion nails - Luke 24:39-40.
5. Are foretold that they will trample His enemies - Psalm 110:1 and Isaiah 63:3.
6. Will someday stand on the Mount of Olives as triumphant Ruler - Zechariah 14:4.
7. In their bronze color denote judgment. See also Daniel 10:6.

The church at Thyatira was to be judged (Revelation 2:18) for its immorality. The white hot glow typifies the indeterrable glory of God; nothing can withstand it - 1 Corinthians 3:12-17.

and His voice like the sound of MANY WATERS.

At times large bodies of water can be perfectly still. Perhaps this is why we don't hear God's voice today as described here. God wants us "to be still and know that He is God" (Psalm 46:10 KJV) because He is in His holy temple (Habakkuk 2:20).

BUT when it is time for judgment (as Revelation will tell us), then His voice becomes like MANY WATERS. That is the way voices are in heaven - Revelation 14:2 and Revelation 19:6. His voice is powerful and majestic - Psalm 29:3-9. His voice is mightier than the breakers of the sea - Psalm 93:3-5. In that day the loud, booming sound of Satan's "Rock'n'Roll" will be TOTALLY drowned out by His voice.

We all will listen to Him, like it or not!!!
