John has a vision of the final reconciliation of all creation. For God is making (present active indicative) all things new. Rev. 21:5
God knows that the church will be tempted to shrink back from its commissioning in face of its persecution. This is why the message is given, not by any ordinary angel, but one with the form and likeness of God himself, and why the commission but be fully consumed and internalized so that it cannot be forsaken.
Therefore as sin came into the world through one man and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all men sinned . . . . Then as one man’s trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one man’s act of righteousness leads to acquittal and life for all men. For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by one man’s obedience, many will be made righteous.
