Today is a beautiful day, because John experienced this and wrote of it while exiled on the Isle of Patmos. “When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. But he laid his right hand on me, saying, ‘Fear not, I am the first and the last, and the living one. I died, and behold I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of Death and Hades.'” (Revelation 1:17-18 ESV)
The account from an eyewitness to Jesus: the ministry years, the transfiguration, the crucifixion, death, burial, resurrection, the 40-day period on earth after the resurrection, and the ascension. Do not fear.
