Can you believe it? We made it through the whole Bible! Our first Word Wednesday was over a year ago. Boy, has my life changed since then. How about yours? Here is hoping that you grew closer to God as we read our way through the Bible together. I’ve loved your comments and your emails. This has been a growth experience for sure. I’m still deciding what to do next, so check back next Wednesday for the plan. Are you ready? Here we are in Revelations, and the vision of Jesus that literally thrills me every time I read it:
Revelation 19: 11-16 (NIV)– 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.
Have you ever needed a hero? Here He is. Oh, my friends, one of these days… One of these days this is exactly how we will see Him. He will arrive and, boy, will it be the most amazing, most incredible, most awesome thing we have ever seen. Is it any wonder that every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that He is Lord? How can we not when He shows up in triumph like this?
Don’t you just love it? There is so much here to absolutely gush over. One of the names of my Jesus is Faithful and True. Think on the meaning of that one for a few minutes. He is justice. He is victory. He is salvation. He is things that only He knows. He is, ultimately and above all, King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Our mighty Savior returning in triumph. I can’t wait to see that!
Can you tell? This is one of those times I resort to babbling because I’m at such a loss for words. There is so much more in my heart when it comes to Jesus than my words could ever explain. If I thought seeing my husband step off the plane from Afghanistan was incredible, I can’t fathom what it will be like to see my Savior step out of the sky!
It all boils down to Jesus. The whole Bible points to Him, to God’s love in sending Him. Please. If you don’t know Him, be willing to meet Him. He’s come more than halfway for you, and one of these days He is going to crack open that sky and make the most triumphant return ever imagined. Read those verses again. Don’t you want to be a part of that? I do. And I can’t wait!
