A reflection on Revelation 19:11-16,
the vision of the warrior Christ
See Jesus Christ for all He is.
He is more than a baby in a manger.
He is more than a gentle healer and teacher.
He is a Mighty Warrior who leads
all the forces of Sovereign God
against the armies of evil.
His enemies are
He not only teaches and heals.
He judges and wages war.
He is no longer clothed like a peasant.
He is a great conqueror
who wears a robe dipped in the blood of His enemies.
His name is still Prince of Peace,
but it is also King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
He carries not only a shepherd’s staff
but a rod of iron to shatter any who oppose Him.
He rides a white horse.
His eyes are a flame of fire.
On His head are many crowns, and
He treads the wine press of
the fierce wrath of Almighty God.
He is Yahweh Sabaoth,
Lord of all the armies of heaven.
From His mouth comes a sharp, double-edged sword:
the eternal truth and
sovereign authority of the One High God.
With it He will make a slaughter of the enemies of
Satan and all His followers are arrayed against us.
But this is our Savior!
This is our Deliverer!
This is our Champion,
