The Rider on the white horse

Revelation 19 KJV

19:1-5 Triumphant Praises to God: Revelation 19 begins with a picture of the redeemed saints in heaven singing triumphant praises to God with all their hearts. They are praising God for the justice and righteousness of His judgments on Babylon and for salvation from sin and from the power of Satan. All the heavenly beings join their voices proclaiming “Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.” All heaven is filled with unutterable joy in the love of God and with rejoicing at the eradication of evil from the universe.

 

19:6-9 The Marriage Supper of the Lamb: The announcement is made, “The marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife hath made herself ready.” Here Christ receives His kingdom, which is called “His Bride” (Revelation 21:9), and is symbolized by the New Jerusalem. Revelation 21:9-10.

She is clothed in “fine linen, clean and white.” The “fine linen” is the righteousness of Jesus which He gives to all who receive Him as Lord. The hosts of the redeemed are the citizens of His glorious kingdom. Thus “His Bride,” Christ’s Church and Kingdom is symbolically clothed in “the righteousness of the saints.”

The saints take part in “the marriage supper of the Lamb,” vs. 9. All heaven rejoices in a glorious celebration as Christ receives His kingdom.

19:10 The angel tells John to “worship God” only. Angels and prophets are both created beings, servants of God trusted with a common task, to bring prophecy, called here “the testimony of Jesus,” to mankind

19:11-16 The Feast of the Birds, Armageddon: Next, John sees a vision of Christ’s Second Coming that deals with the wicked. Christ appears on “a white horse” as the Conquering King. He comes with the “armies” of “Heaven” to “judge and make war.” His eyes seem to pierce to the heart of each person, for He knows every thought and word and action of their lives. His vesture has on it the “blood” of the victory He won at Calvary; that accomplishment ensured His triumph now in the battle of Armageddon.

The “sharp sword” and “rod of iron” signify victory over His enemies. Jesus comes to smite the wicked nations, who have waged war against Him, His saints and His church. He has laid aside his priestly garments and put on “crowns” and kingly attire; He is coming as “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS

19:17-18 When the battle of Armageddon is over and the wicked are all dead, an angel invites “all the fowls” to “the supper of the great God” that they “may eat the flesh” of the wicked. While the saints partake of the “marriage supper of the Lamb,” the wicked become a feast for the birds at “the supper of the great God.” May we all accept Christ’s gracious invitation to live and dine with Him in Heaven.

19:19-21 “The beast,” the Papal Roman Church system, along with “the false prophet,” apostate Protestantism, are “cast alive into a lake of fire.” The rest of the wicked are slain and left to be eaten by the birds; no one is left alive.
