Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Another mighty angel - Either Christ or his representative; clothed with a cloud; a symbol of the Divine majesty.

A rainbow was upon his head - The token of God's merciful covenant with mankind.

His face was as it were the sun - So intensely glorious that it could not be looked on.

His feet as pillars of fire - To denote the rapidity and energy of his motions, and the stability of his counsels.

The Living One
"I am He that liveth, and was dead" (i. 18). (...) (ho zon), THE LIVING ONE. Like the previous title, it is used as a special designation of the One whose unveiling is about to be shewn to John. Its use is peculiar to Daniel and Revelation. The two books thus linked together by it are linked as to their character and subject matter in a very special manner. It is used twice in Daniel:- Dan. iv. 34 (31 [19] ) and xii. 7; and six time in Revelation:- Rev. i. 18; iv. 9,10; v. 14; x. 6; and xv. 7. [20]
