The Almighty has chosen him alone to be in covenant with, a covenant that extends to the church, his descendants by faith. He swears by himself to a man! What a marvelous example of sovereign grace.
We focus so much on what we think is a problem that we miss the nearness of his presence.

While we are told it is the Son of Man who is coming, the entire vision is of the glorious God of eternity. This combines both the Godhood of Christ with his humanity.
