Scripture: Revelation 19.
(What is God saying here?)
Revelation 19:11-16 (NLT)
11 Then I saw heaven opened, and a white horse was standing there. Its rider was named Faithful and True, for he judges fairly and wages a righteous war.
12 His eyes were like flames of fire, and on his head were many crowns. A name was written on him that no one understood except himself.
13 He wore a robe dipped in blood, and his title was the Word of God.
14 The armies of heaven, dressed in the finest of pure white linen, followed him on white horses.
15 From his mouth came a sharp sword to strike down the nations. He will rule them with an iron rod. He will release the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty, like juice flowing from a winepress.
16 On his robe at his thigh was written this title: King of all kings and Lord of all lords.
(How Can I apply what God is saying here to my circumstances today?)
I wonder what it will be like when we open our eyes in heaven and see our Lord! Just look at the challenging job John had in finding a name to give Him when he saw Him: Faithful and True; Word of God; King of all kings; Lord of all lords. Wow, no matter how much we look forward to the day and the expectation of seeing the One who sacrificed His life so that we might enjoy eternal life in glory, yet I’m sure that our bottom jaw will drop and our hearts will be filled with excitement and joy at seeing our Savior face to face! For those reading this who knows my Lord, you will appreciate and share the excitement that I feel in reflecting on this. For others who may read this and feel nothing at all, please contact me using the email address below so that I could introduce you to my Redeemer so that you too may catch a glimpse of this awesome moment that Christians look forward to. I would welcome and enjoy the opportunity to share more with you. With so much uncertainty in this world that we live in, why not bring in the New Year with this one thing, the absolutely most important decision you could make, being firmed up? It is way too important to delay this decision friend.
(With God’s help, what am I going to do differently today because He said it?)
Lord Jesus, thank You for the assurance of eternal life with You! Thank You for the joy that I can live with even today as I think about heaven and the idea of looking into Your wonderful face and singing praises to You. Although I have lots I can question as to why You would do all this for humble me, I believe that You did and I thank You for displaying such love for me. I am Yours, and I know without a doubt that one day I will see You, just as John did in his vision told about in this passage of scripture. Thank You Lord Jesus!
