Pamphlet 1907 Rev. kc 49-3

Heaven opened!
Hey, the veil, that spiritual dimension
that we can only see through darkly, has been parted.

Rev. 19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

Heaven opened! Hey, the veil, that spiritual dimension that we can only see through darkly, has been parted. Of course we know that when Christ returns at the 7th Trump, the last trump, we are changed from our flesh bodies to our spiritual bodies as Paul documents in 1 Cor. 15:52: "In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed."

The rider on this white horse is Jesus Christ, and He is coming to make war with His enemies, who we read in Rev. 17 are preparing to make war with Him. Rev. 17:14 "These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful."

[12] His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns; and He had a name written, that no man knew, but He himself.
Remember the description of Christ in Rev. 2:18 "And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;"  Wait until His enemies look into His eyes!

Yes, He will have many crowns on His head for all the crowns of the earth will have been surrendered to Him.

The word "knew" used here is "oido" which means to "know intuitively without effort". Do you know His name?

[13] And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
He shed His blood for you and me. He is the Word of God! Always has been!
John 1:1
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Rev. 19:14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

The return of Jesus Christ with His saints! Let's sing now: "Onward Christian Soldiers, Marching as to War!" Ok, that's enough!

Did you notice that everyone who rides with Him is fully clothed in white linen.

[15] And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
The Sharp Two-edge Sword cuts right through the confusion and brings into submission all nations and peoples and tongues! We know from Rev. 1:16 that the Sword is the Word of God. He shall rule with correction, a rod of iron, treading that winepress where those who didn't make the first harvest were cast.
[16] And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
There is no more fitting way to conclude this study than by the words of the apostle Paul in the Book of Timothy concerning our soon coming King of kings and Lord of lords:
1 Tim. 6:11-16
But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

[12] Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

[13] I give thee charge in the sight of God, who quickeneth all things, and before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession;

[14] That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ:

[15] Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;

[16] Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
