Revelation 19:11 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.
The phrase “I saw heaven open” has always fascinated me.
I wonder what it looks like.
Is there a rip in the sky?
Is it a tear in space?
No matter, through the opening is another white horse. We read of one in Chapter 6.
This is not the same.
Revelation 19:13 – His name is called The Word of God.
This is the returning Christ, come to conquer all in righteousness.
He judges and makes war against the champions of sin.
Revelation 19:15 – out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations.
His word is powerful.
His word heals the sick.
His word binds the wounded.
His word pierces a sinful heart.
His word forgives sin.
His word slays nations.
His word is the last word!
Revelation 19:16 And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
