,, His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.”
Rev. 19: 12-15
,, Then 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.”
Last time we studied Rev. 19:11 and now it goes on to say:
"And his eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head many crowns, and he had a name written, which no one knows but himself."
Jesus comes as a Faithful and True Judge to fight and fight against unbelief and lies and not as the first time he came to show mercy and love but people will not and the "disease of sin" can only be cured by force and justice. He reigns as any world kings and rulers would rule out of ambition, greed, pride or conquest, but His rule is absolutely holy, true and just.
"And His eyes are like a flame of fire," In the sixth chapter, when we studied the seals, we read:
,, And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! "For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?"
Rev. 6: 15-17
And we also studied the first chapter where the Lord Jesus reveals himself to the Church:
,, and in the midst of the seven lampstands One like the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band. His head and His hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes like a flame of fire;”
Rev. 1: 13-14
No one can hide from Christ's all-seeing eyes, and that is why Christ first reveals himself to his Church and then to the world, first comes the judgment of Christ on which the faithful appear and then follows the terrible judgment for unbelievers and for all Jesus will be faithful, true and just. judge.
"For it is time to begin judgment from the house of God; if it starts with you first, what will be the consequence for those who oppose God's gospel? And when the righteous shall scarcely be saved, where shall the wicked and the sinner appear?
1 Peter 4: 17-18
"and on His head many crowns,"
We have already talked about crowns and they "symbolize victories", so we mentioned that the "dragon" has seven crowns.
,,… behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads …“
Rev. 12: 3
and the Antichrist ten
,, Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.”
Rev. 13: 1
we have also seen that the faithful in heaven receive a wreath or crowns, and we have mentioned which crowns they are:
An imperishable crown
,, And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown.”
1 Cor. 9:25
The crown of joy
,, For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Is it not even you in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at His coming? For you are our glory and joy.”
1 Thess.2: 19-20
The crown of justice
,, Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.”
2 Tim.4: 8
The crown of life
,, Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been proved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.”
,, "Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.“
And about the Lord Jesus Christ it is written, "and on His head many crowns," which testifies to us that Jesus is victorious in "all fields" because He is the first in everything and all "crowns" belong to Him, there is nothing or some crown to Him. Believers can receive one or several crowns and Jesus is the bearer of all crowns, to Him belongs the crown of creation because He is the Creator of everything, the crown of providence because He is the sustainer and governs even the smallest atoms or that we know but even smaller things which the human race has not yet revealed. so to all creatures, the crown of grace because through Him and for Him we receive blessings, the crown of the Savior because He is the One and Only Savior, the crown as the Head of the Church, the crown of justice, the crown of truth, the crown of holiness; of every authority and there are more because it says "many crowns". Jesus said:
,, All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth….”
And then it says, "And he had a name written, which no one knows but Himself." And then in the next verse it says, "And His name is called, The Word of God." and this sounds like a paradox, no one knows His name and yet His name is "The Word of God" This is because the Lord Jesus is above every description and everything we can write or try to describe the Lord Jesus is all "unspoken" and our words cannot fully describe Him. We can "describe or write" about Him as much as we have learned by the Holy Spirit from the Word of God which He has given us again.
,, "All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and he to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.”
,, "I and My Father are one."”
We would never know this about Jesus if it had not been revealed to us and we only know what we as human beings can understand and comprehend with our senses and there are many things that we as human beings cannot comprehend and understand but that is why we are human and God is God and He reveals to us as much as we can "carry." The Lord Jesus said
,,I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.”
Peter once said to Jesus in conversation:
,, And Simon Peter answered and said, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."
Here is what Jesus told him where he got that knowledge from:
,, Jesus answered and said to him, "Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.”
Today, God "speaks" to us through the Bible of God's Word, which we need to believe where it is revealed to us enough to be saved only through the Lord Jesus Christ, and we cannot "enter" the essence of the Deity of Jesus Christ because we cannot understand it. a name written, which no one knows but Himself. "but again when a man wants to show himself or something around him he speaks and speech are" embodied thoughts "that tell us what the person wanted to say. So it is with Christ we know the thoughts of Christ that He wanted to convey to us by reading God's Word which is "speech" that we understand or listen to His word through speech when someone verbally conveys it to us. If we want to know "a part of God's heart and God's thoughts" we can "carry" then look at Jesus through God's Word because He is the Word of God
"And his name is called The Word of God."
The text goes on to say:
"And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies of heaven followed him on white horses, clothed in white and clean silk. And out of his mouth went a sharp sword, that with it he might smite the heathen; and He shall fall upon them with a rod of iron; and he treadeth the winepress of wrath and indignation, and the wrath of God Almighty.
"And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood," and this is not the blood of Jesus that he shed on us on the cross, but the fulfillment of the prophecy of Isaiah 63: 1-4:
The prophet Isaiah asks:
"Who is that who comes from Edom, from Bozrah, in red robes?" Beautifully dressed, stepping in the greatness of his strength? "
and the Lord answers:
"I am the one who speaks justice and I am worthy to be saved."
and Isaiah asks again:
"Why is Your red suit and clothes like those of one who treads in a tub?"
so the Lord Jesus answers again:
,, Who is this who comes from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah, this One who is glorious in His apparel, traveling in the greatness of His strength?--"I who speak in righteousness, mighty to save." Why is Your apparel red, and Your garments like one who treads in the winepress? "I have trodden the winepress alone, and from the peoples no one was with Me. For I have trodden them in My anger, and trampled them in My fury; their blood is sprinkled upon My garments, and I have stained all My robes. For the day of vengeance is in My heart, and the year of My redeemed has come.”
Isaiah 63: 1-4
Here are a few more verses that speak to this topic:
,, Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations, as He fights in the day of battle. And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, from east to west, making a very large valley; half of the mountain shall move toward the north and half of it toward the south. Then you shall flee through My mountain valley, for the mountain valley shall reach to Azal. Yes, you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Thus the Lord my God will come, and all the saints with You.”
Zechariah 14: 3-5
,, And to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, when He comes, in that Day, to be glorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed. "
2 Thess.1: 7-10
Many preach Jesus only "as love" or only "the one who forgives" or is "merciful", which is true but not complete, and at the same time they forget or do not know that Jesus is a Righteous Judge. It should also be known that there is a limit. God's suffering, and when the "cup is full," we can expect what we have just read about God's wrath.
While Jesus was leading the people of Israel, he "fought against the kings" for them, and in the future Jesus will "trample the kings and the army of the Antichrist" when they gather to fight against Him.
"And out of his mouth went a sharp sword, that with it he might smite the heathen; and He shall fall upon them with a rod of iron; and he treadeth the winepress of wrath and indignation, and the wrath of God Almighty.
This "sharp sword" comes out of "His mouth" as an "instrument" of wrath, and the prophet Isaiah wrote about this:
,,… He shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, and with the breath of His lips …”
The Lord Jesus will say only the "Word" and there will be "pagans killed" and this should be a lesson to "come to our senses" while there is still time.
,, "Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore hear a word from My mouth, and give them warning from Me: "When I say to the wicked, 'You shall surely die,' and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, that same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand.”
Ezekiel 3: 17-18
Then God spoke through the prophets and today we have the Bible the Word of God through which God speaks to us so it would be wise to listen to what God tells us through the Bible the Word of God.
The text also reads:
"And the armies of heaven followed him on white horses, clothed in white and clean silk."
Today it is popular for people to talk and write about unidentified flying objects which is another deception of Satan and in our text we see that the "Object" will be clearly identified and it will be the Lord Jesus Christ as the "sign of the Son of Man in heaven" with an army that will to be dressed "in white and pure silk" and then they will not be able to say UFO because everyone will know what it is about ... The Lord Jesus said about this:
,, "Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. "Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. "
Matthew 24: 29-30
There will be Churches here because it says:
,, And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.”
Rev. 19: 8
and there will be angels:
,, "The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness,”
,, and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
2 Thess.1: 7-8
This is what the Apostle Paul meant when he wrote:
,, When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.”
Col. 3: 4
And to end this section with the verses of the Apostle Paul about the glory yet to come:
,, For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”
