Week 52  Day 6

 

The vision of John is building

            in intensity

            and destructiveness

Evil is being subdued and destroyed

            by the armies of heaven.

 

 

Side by side with the depictions of violence

            is the great anticipation

            of victory

                        and the victory celebration

                        which is going to be a wedding

 

The bridegroom is the Lamb of God 

The bride is described as a great city

            of the redeemed

            those who on earth believed in Jesus

            and were faithful to do

            the will of their heavenly Father.

 

 

You all come! 

Wash your robes in the blood of the Lamb

            and come join the bride

Our proud father God is preparing a feast

            like you won't believe 

            and he wants us all to be there

So come.

 

 

 

                             BEHOLD:  A WHITE HORSE

            Gains are made but the battle is not over yet.

                                  Revelation 17, 18 & 19

 

    3Then one of the angels carried me into the wilderness.  And

I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names

of blasphemy.  4The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet,

and adorned with gold and precious stones, having in her hand

a golden cup full of abominations.  5 On her forehead a name was
written:  BABYLON THE GREAT, MOTHER OF HARLOTS. 

6The woman was drunk with the blood of the saints and martyrs.

    1 I saw another angel, and the earth was bright with his glory. 

2He cried mightily, saying, "Babylon the great is fallen, and has

become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit.

4Another voice said, "Come out of her, my people, lest you

share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.

    1A great multitude in heaven said, "Alleluia!  Salvation and

glory, honor and power belong to the Lord our God!  2He has

judged the great harlot who corrupted the earth, and avenged

on her the blood of His servants." 

   6Then a great multitude, as the sound of many mighty waters,

thundered, "Alleluia!  The Lord God reigns!  7Let us rejoice, for
the marriage of the Lamb has come, his wife has made herself

ready."  8To her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean

and bright; the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.

    9Then he said to me, "Write:  'Blessed are those who are
called
to the marriage supper of the Lamb!'"

    11Now behold, a white horse.  The rider was called Faithful

and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.  12His

eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. 

He had a name written that no one knew except Himself.  13He

was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called

the Word of God.  14The armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen,

white and clean, followed Him on white horses.  15Out of His

mouth goes a sharp sword, with it to strike the nations.  He will

rule them with a rod of iron.  16He has on His robe and on His

thigh a name written: 

              KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

   1An angel came down from heaven, having the key to the

bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.  2He laid hold of

the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil, and bound him

for a thousand years; 3and cast him into the pit, so that he should

deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. 

But after these things he must be released for a little while.
