His eyes were like flames of fire, and on his head were many crowns.
(Revelation 19:12 NLT)

When Jesus first came humbly to the earth He was despised and rejected and the people turned their backs on him and looked the other way. (Isaiah 53:3 NLT) In that time I can imagine Jesus’ eyes were swollen shut and closed from the beatings He took by the Roman soldiers. Today King Jesus is crowned in glory and His eyes are like flames of fire that pierce even the darkest places of our hearts. We cannot hide from the righteous judgment of His gaze.
