He is comforting John and the churches that are facing persecution
Persecution, separation, the sea, and the land are all common themes in this revelation
John is bearing the cross, and he is writing to churches that have born, are bearing, and will bear the cross
He is ruling for the church, even when persecution makes it seem like He isn't
John's description of Jesus shows many of the ways He rules over this world
Find comfort: He is also ruling for you
