“Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war.” Revelation 19:11
“From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty.” Revelation 19:15
(Context: Revelation 19:11-16)
John gives us both a wonderful and terrifying description of Jesus to meditate on. Jesus is coming as a victorious King! He is perfect in his attributes. Jesus freely offers grace and mercy now to those that would believe in Him. There is a time coming soon when the opportunity to be saved is over. Jesus comes with righteous wrath against those who have rejected him. As believers, we await this day with eager anticipation, but this will be a day of unimaginable horror for many that we know that have not been saved by His grace.
- Praise Jesus, the one who alone can be called Faithful and True.
- Do you have someone in your life that you are concerned will be receiving God’s wrath?
- Pray the Spirit will lead you in sharing the hope found in Jesus with the unbelievers in your life.
