Several of my posts in the past have referred to Jesus Christ
as "The Messiah".

In the Book of Daniel
"The Anointed One"
refers forward to the coming of "The Messiah".
first mentions "The Anointed One,
but then Daniel 10:5-6 describes Daniel's personal encounter with Him!
He says, "I looked up and there before me was a Man dressed in linen,
with a belt of fine gold from Uphaz around His waist.
His body was like topaz,
His face like lightning,
His eyes like flaming torches,
His arms and legs like the gleam of burnished bronze,
and His voice like the sound of a multitude..."
This sounds a lot like what the Apostle John saw
when he was exiled on the Isle of Patmos and recorded in Revelation 1:
"...Among the lampstands was Someone like a Son of Man,
dressed in a robe reaching down to His feet
and with a golden sash around His chest.
The hair on His head was white like wool,
as white as snow,
and His eyes were like blazing fire.
His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace,
and His voice was like the sound of rushing waters...
His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance..."
Ezekiel also describes a similar vision.
No wonder they all fell on their faces before Him!
And someday so shall we!
Revelation 1:7 says "Every eye will see Him", and
Philippians 2:10 says "...At the Name of Jesus every knee should bow..."
The Anointed One!
