MEMORISE : Then I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands (Revelation 1:12).

READ : Revelation 1:9-20

[9]. I, John, both your brother and companion in the tribulation and kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was on the island that is called Patmos for the word of God and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

[10]. I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, and I heard behind me a loud voice, as of a trumpet,

[11]. saying, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last,” and, “What you see, write in a book and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia: to Ephesus, to Smyrna, to Pergamos, to Thyatira, to Sardis, to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.”

[12]. Then I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands,

[13]. and in the midst of the seven lampstands One like the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band.

[14]. His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes like a flame of fire;

[15]. His feet were like fine brass, as if refined in a furnace, and His voice as the sound of many waters;

[16]. He had in His right hand seven stars, out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword, and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength.

[17]. And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last.

[18]. I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.

[19]. Write the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which will take place after this.

[20]. The mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand, and the seven golden lampstands: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands which you saw are the seven churches.


Turning is both a spiritual and physical exercise. It is to change direction from an initial surrounding, or setting. It can help one to see and understand differently from known initial perspectives. This was a necessary exercise for Moses, for him to observe the burning bush and to hear and confirm the voice through it. Our Lord Jesus Christ told His disciples to come aside in like manner (Matt. 17:1-6; Mk. 6:30-32). This is the experience of the aged Apostle John Zebedee, the beloved, who was privileged to write Revelation. Even though he had been taken aside earlier through exile to the Island of Patmos, he still had to turn, so as to see and verify the voice that spoke to him repeatedly and so loudly.

You need a break from your regular routine in order to gain a more holistic perspective on, and understanding of life, both spiritually and otherwise. You will be able to see, understand, recognise, and make the most of better ideas for growth, progress, and breakthrough. Retreats, trips, spiritual encounters on mountaintops, solitary prayer and fasting, etc., do make a difference. For your own sake, try not to be too busy. Regularly turn aside and get a better understanding of life from all angles.

CAC GHB: 761

1. Where He lead me I will go,
For I have leaned to trust Him so,
And I remember ’twas for me,
That he was slain on Calvary.
Jesus shall lead me night and day
Jesus shall lead me all the way
He is the truest Friend to me,
For I remember Calvary.

2. O I delight His command,
Love to be led y His dear hand;
His divine will is sweet to me
Hallowed by blood-stained Calvary.

3. Onward I go, nor doubt nor fear,
Happy with Christ my saviour near,
Trusting that I some day shall see
Jesus my friend on Calvary.


Deuteronomy 10, 11, 12
