A white horse

Bible Text: Revelation 19:11-21 |

Well, it’s not really about the horse, is it? It is all about the rider on that horse. Revelation 19:11-21 is filled with imagery and metaphor that John saw in his vision. It is a spectacular scene with our Saviour riding in and the armies of heaven following. The picture that we get of Jesus in these verses represents a clear, but often unexpected, depiction of the Lord. We see him as one who is awesome in his power and decisive in his judgment on evil. The passage is, as theologians would say, representative of a “high Christology.” The call to us as believers in this message will be just as clear: Ride with Jesus and see the end of evil wrought simply at his word.

Ride with Jesus...

...and see the end of all evil (19:17-21)

The second coming of Christ is an absolutely essential theme in New Testament theology. In his cross and resurrection, Christ won a great victory over the powers of evil; by his second coming, he will execute that victory. Apart from his return to purge his creation of evil, redemption remains forever incomplete.

...wrought simply at his word (19:11-16)

To modern Christians ‘the Word of God’ is primarily the Bible. In the New Testament, the Word of God is primarily the good news of the gospel, whether proclaimed by Jesus or by the apostles. Christ in his own person is the Word of God par excellence—the embodiment of God’s total redemptive plan.
