Scripture: Revelation 19:11-15
Do we know the Jesus of Revelation 19:11-15? It says, “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 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. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.” Do we know the Jesus of Revelation 19:11-15? He has a robe dipped in blood. He is the Judge of all the Earth. Do we know this Jesus? Do we know the Jesus Who out of His mouth comes a sharp sword? Do we have a sharp sword in our mouth? Do we know the Jesus Who will strike the nations? Can we pray and represent this Jesus? Do we know the Jesus Who will rule and pastor with a Rod of Iron? Can we pastor with a Rod of Iron? Do we know the Jesus that treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of the Almighty God? Do we know the Jesus Who is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords? If we do, then we are ready for the last days. If we do not, we had better go back to the New Testament and get to know the Jesus of the New Testament. Who is Jesus to us? He is very clearly presented throughout the New Testament and we are called to know Him in all His fullness. Let us pray that we get there, so we can save nations, preferably starting with the one in which we live. Let us be agents of salvation in the last days, realizing that in order to be a nation of salvation, we have to be a nation of judgment as well. Because only through judgment, can we save. That is the Jesus of the New Testament.
