Is this more fanciful than the stories of Puranas?
Those sentences which are colored in orange are from Maharishi Dayananda Saraswati book Satyarth Prakash (The Light of Truth) and those which are colored in black are Jerry Thomas’s response.
"…And he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth." (10:1 – 3.)
C. Now are not these tales of the Biblical angels even more fanciful than those of the Puraanaas and story-tellers?
Answer: For the interpretation of the symbolic language in the prophetical books, please read the article Introduction to the Revelation and Figurative Language of Prophetical Writings.
Maharishi missed on the prophetical language in most of the questions in revelation due to which I have to repeat and remind the same thing in almost all answers in Revelation.
This Angel by His descriptions tells us that He is none other than Christ.
Revelation 10: 1- “I saw still another mighty angel coming down from heaven, clothed with a cloud. And a rainbow was on his head, his face was like the sun, and his feet like pillars of fire.”
Even within the book of Revelation, clothed with cloud (Revelation 1:7), face was like the sun (Revelation 1:16), has been described for LORD Jesus Christ. The feet on the sea and earth shows that He has power over both. All authority has been given unto Him.
