Application:

  • What do you learn about Christ in Revelation 1:1-9 that encourages you?
  • How prepared are you for the imminent return of the Lord?
  • How confident are you in responding to the soon return of the Lord with the words from Revelation 22:20?   “He who testifies to these things says, ‘Yes, I am coming soon.’  Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.”

 

“I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True.  With justice he judges and makes war.  His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself.  He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God.  The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean.  Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations.  ‘He will rule them with an iron scepter’.  He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty.  On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:  KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.” Revelation 19:11-16
