Behold, a White Horse

Let the power of Your Word reside in me, Lord. Amen

"Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns ... He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God" (Revelation 19:11-13

As surely as He was here the first time, Jesus Christ is literally, actually, visibly, bodily coming back to this earth in great power, glory and majesty. John shows us our victorious Lord Who comes on a white charger, symbolizing honor and conquest. He comes, faithful to His promise, to wage righteous war against satan's forces. He wears many diadems, for He is King of kings and Lord of lords. His royal robe bears the reminder of His precious blood spilled at Calvary, by which we have power to overcome. That blood is the basis for the victory He is about to win at Armageddon. Our King comes now in vengeance to put an end to the antichrist's reign of terror.

The antichrist and his huge contingent from the coalition of nations will gather outside Jerusalem to make war against God's ancient people and against God Himself. When it appears there is no hope whatsoever, the heavens will open and the Lord Jesus Christ will come - this time not for His saints but with His saints! And while the antichrist's forces may be equipped with the latest high-tech weaponry, our battle will be won with one weapon: a sword.

This sword is His Word. He created everything with His words. At the beginning of time, Jesus spoke and worlds sprang into space, darkness fled and life appeared. Now, as history's timeline is winding down, He will speak again. He may utter only two words and the battle of Armageddon will be over. He might simply say, "Drop dead." And those vast armies will be obliterated. The beast and the false prophet will be cast alive into the lake of fire. And so will end the career of the antichrist, as 777 will take care of 666!
