The Lord of Glory, The Second Coming of Christ Jesus


The Coming of Christ in Glory

Book of Revelation Chapter 19 Verse 11 through 21

The one event that much of the world has been talking about and waiting on from the beginning is the “Coming of the Messiah”.

Most every religion has some sort of a messiah!

For the Church we know that the Messiah has already come to this earth and He first came to die to bring a means of salvation to everyone if they would just believe Him before they died.

For the Church we know that the Messiah would return!

His return is in two stages!

1) He will first come to take His Church away because of the promise that His Church would not see His wrath poured out upon those who rejected Him. He would come as a thief, in a cloud, unseen to the human eye.

2) He would then return in full view with the armies of Heaven and rid this earth of sin, and to fulfill certain promises He made to the Hebrew children, the Jews.

This time had come!

We know the Messiah is the Lord Jesus Christ and to us, He is the Lamb of God, the Husband of the Bride.

The Church is the Bride and since the Church was caught out from this earth, the Judgment Seat of Christ has taken place, the wedding of the Church, the Bride of Christ, has taken place, and the Church has accompanied the Lord to begin a one thousand year honey moon upon this earth that will be remade after the wars of Armageddon.

How had the Lord first come?

Mat 21:5 Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.
Mat 21:6 And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them,
Mat 21:7 And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon.
Mat 21:8 And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way.
Mat 21:9 And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.
Mat 21:10 And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?
Mat 21:11 And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.

In our lesson today we will witness the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

He will be coming as a victorious King!

Mat 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

King of Israel as told to King David, and as King of His creation exposing the lies of Satan!

Why are so many things happening upon this earth that seem to cause harm? All His creation is right now groaning in anticipation of His Second Coming.

Rom 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
Rom 8:20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,
Rom 8:21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
Rom 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

*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.

How do we know this is the Messiah?

He is called “Faithful”. The Lord Jesus Christ is “Faithful”! He will do exactly what He says He will do, every time.

The only thing that moves the hand of God away from His wrath, is repentance!

We can rely on the Lord to do as He says!

He is called “True”. There is no one and nothing that are more true, than the Word of God and our Lord and Savior!

Truth is the complete opposite of false!

Rom 3:3 For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?
Rom_3:4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

There is nothing in the hands or the heart of man that can overcome the truth of God!

Every evil and wicked person can count on the Lord to be true whether they believe or not!

He will be true in His “judgment” and He will be “faithful” to His Word!

He is returning to this earth to “judge” all those who have rejected Him and to make war with Satan and those with Him who want a war!

It should be obvious that the liberals including the liberal media want a war and a war they will have, but they are on the losing side!

Why will the Lord make war? Because it is the right thing to do to appease Himself for the mistreatment of His followers and because He said He would.

He will be fulfilling all remaining prophesy when He returns this Second Time!

*Rev 19:12 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.

We should clearly understand that when we see Jesus, we will not be confused about who He is!

It will be obvious that we are in the presence of the Almighty God!

His eyes speak of His omniscience.

He wears many crowns, but these are not the garland crown of the rider in Chapter 6.

These are the true crowns of power as the Lord Jesus is the ruler of all nations and He comes as the Supreme King of this earth.

And He had a name written that no one upon the earth knew.

As Christians we know Him as “Faithful” and “True”.

He comes as King of this world and the true King of Israel!

He comes in “righteousness” because this is His unchanging character!

Before He sits as King, He must first be Judge and Executioner!

The Apostle Paul wrote by the Holy Spirit:

Act 17:29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.
Act 17:30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
Act 17:31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

Because He is the Almighty God, He is beyond the reach of human intellect.

It is inconceivable that such a God as He can truly exist, until you have known Him!

None of us truly know just how “Great Is Our God” nor can we know!

Our greatest treasure of the description of our God is the “Written Word of God” that He has given to us!

*Rev 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

The war the Lord Jesus has caused to happen is like no other war that has ever taken place!

His vesture is dipped in blood because it is He who fought the battle.

We will notice in the next passages that the clothing of the armies of Heaven are still wearing their white fine linen.

Rev 14:20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

Psa 58:10 The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
Psa 58:11 So that a man shall say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous: verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth.

Isa 63:1 Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, traveling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save.
Isa 63:2 Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat?
Isa 63:3 I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment.
Isa 63:4 For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.

The Lord does not need an army to fight the Battle of Armageddon!

He alone will fight this battle.

He will bring us along as Judges and to be kings and Priests in the nations that remain.

The angels come because they will be needed.

The Hebrew children will take care of the rebuilt Temple and serve the Lord.

He is called the Word of God because every bit of the information in the Bible has proven to be true and our Savior, King Jesus is the truth.

Joh 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Jesus is the only one wearing bloody garments!

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

Does anyone want to know what our clothing requirements will be in Heaven.

Fine linen, white and clean.

Rev 19:8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

The Bride of Christ is on a honeymoon all our battle garments left behind when the Lord took us home to be with Him forever.

Wherever He goes we go!

Jud 1:14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
Jud 1:15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

I believe these horses to be literal as animals that exist in Heaven.

The Lord on the other hand has some special things that go with Him in the times of His wrath.

*Rev 19:15 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.

Back in Chapter 16 we read about the seven last plagues. This sharp sword is the tool used by the Lord and it means that when the Lord speaks things happen.

In has been that way since the beginning of time!

Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

God spoke His creation into existence and when He speaks things just take place just as He directs them to take place!

We know that there will be those who refused to take the “Mark of the Beast”.

We know that many of them became martyrs but not all.

We know the Lord has protected the Hebrew children throughout the Great Tribulation.

The Bible mentions some who helped these Hebrews some say Jews.

There will be many alive when the Battle of Armageddon is over, though many multitudes will die.

All those who took the Mark of the Beast, and all those who worshipped his image will all have been slaughtered.

These that are left will live and multiply during the one thousand years that King Jesus will rule this earth.

We see that King Jesus will rule with a “rod of iron” which means those who are alive will follow the written Word of God exactly as God intended.

There will be no deviation.
There will be no other laws of man.

But there will be no Satan to cause problems.
There will be no temptation to sin.

There will be a remade earth where there will be all things supplied that are needed.

There will still be work to do because the Lord will still hate laziness!

The Lord will rule all nations.

The Saints will sit in places to judge, places to guide, and places to worship to assist all people.

By the way there will be no discrimination!

Once the wrath of God subsides, we will all see our loving Savior!

Isa 11:4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.
Isa 11:5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.
Isa 11:6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.
Isa 11:7 And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
Isa 11:8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice’ den.
Isa 11:9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.

*Rev 19:16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

As long as Jesus has been in Heaven, He has been our Advocate and he still wore the garments of as the Highest of High Priest.

As He returns to earth, He will wear the garments of a King, in fact King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

There is no higher authority than the Lord Jesus Christ.

We see the King of Kings and Lord of Lords as He has completed His battle.

The blood showing that the war of Armageddon is over, and the victorious King of the Jews is returning but also the High Priest who has made the sacrifice for sin.

Isa 63:3 I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment.

The feast prepared for the beast and the fowl of the earth has been made ready!

*Rev 19:17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
Rev 19:18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

This day was foretold by most all the prophets:

Eze 39:17 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.
Eze 39:18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.
Eze 39:19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.

We might ask, How could we see an angel standing in the sun?

I believe this is the Lord for there is none more glorious than the Lord. The Sun is dim when compared to the glory of the Lord!

Isa 34:8 For it is the day of the LORD’S vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion.

Remember the blood will flow as deep as the bridle of the war horse, so many of the armies of the Beast have been slaughtered.

The appointed kings of the Beast will be with their armies.

The Lord has controlled the air and all air power was His own!

The Lord has stopped all sea power as the blood of the waters had caused all in the seas to perish including the ships and submarines.

It is only the land-based militaries that could come to Armageddon for destruction.

Remember the Lord has told us of these things for more than 2000 years.

These armies were mere puppets led to their death by the Antichrist.

Remember the False Church had been crushed by the Beast and he assumed the power of the false church.
The political system has failed, and some kings had left, and the Antichrist had placed new kings in their place.

The Apostle Peter said because we know all these things it should affect the way we live today.

2Pe 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
2Pe 3:11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
2Pe 3:12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
2Pe 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
2Pe 3:14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

We must reject any and all sin in our lives!

We have no right to take advantage of the “Grace of God”, knowing the end of all these who reject the Lord.

We must be ever thankful for a Lord Jesus who took such pain just so we could miss out on the wrath of God!

The war of the Antichrist ended before he realized it had started!

*Rev 19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
Rev 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

When John saw the army of the Antichrist he would have been astounded. Remember this army is so large that at their death the blood will flow as deep as the bridle of a horse in this valley, where this war will take place.

Rev_14:20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

A furlong is an eighth of a mile. Six thousand and six hundred furlongs is 825 miles.

We know that just one nation had a 2 million-man army and all the armies of the world are gathered against Israel.

Satan thinks he brought this army but in fact it is the Lord who has gathered this army!

Have you ever heard that saying “too many chiefs and not enough Indians”?

We have the greatest “human” (empowered by Satan) military commander who has ever lived, the Anichrist.

He has brought with him his own spiritual leader (the false prophet).

He has brought with him his (ten) hand-picked kings of the earth and their armies.

There are stories in the Bible of what happens when there are too many leaders.

They have come for one reason. To eliminate Israel and all the Jews from the face of the earth.

The Hebrew children have Jehovah’s promise that He would fulfill the promise made to King David.

2Sa 7:10 Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime,
2Sa 7:11 And as since the time that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel, and have caused thee to rest from all thine enemies. Also the LORD telleth thee that he will make thee an house.
2Sa 7:12 And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom.
2Sa 7:13 He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever.
2Sa 7:14 I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men:
2Sa 7:15 But my mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee.
2Sa 7:16 And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever.

Psa 89:3 I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant,
Psa 89:4 Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne to all generations. Selah.

Psa 89:27 Also I will make him my firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth.
Psa 89:28 My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him.
Psa 89:29 His seed also will I make to endure for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven.

Psa 89:33 Nevertheless my lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail.
Psa 89:34 My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.
Psa 89:35 Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David.
Psa 89:36 His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before me.
Psa 89:37 It shall be established for ever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven. Selah.

Since this unbreakable Covenant was made by Jehovah, who cannot lie, then the outcome of this war is already known!

The first thing the Lord does is remove the Beast.
The next thing the Lord does is remove the False prophet and both of them are tossed “alive”, into the Burning Lake of Fire.

The next thing the Lord does is to begin the slaughter of these 10’s of millions in these great armies, with most of them killing each other.

Joe 3:12 Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.
Joe 3:13 Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great.
Joe 3:14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.
Joe 3:15 The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.
Joe 3:16 The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.

*Rev 19:21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

It will be a very short war!

We get no written account accept, for the beginning of this battle and the ending of this battle with the Lord having victory.

There is not one word of the fighting or the engagement because there is no power on earth that can compare to the omnipotence of our Lord!

Remember the Lord has “all power”!

In the end we humans are nothing but dust!

Psa_103:14 For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.

Ecc 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.
Ecc 12:8 Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher; all is vanity.

All that humans can do in the face of the Almighty God, will be in vain!

The remaining chapters deal with the victory of the Lamb.

Amen
