After these things I heard something like a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, “Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God; BECAUSE HIS JUDGMENTS ARE TRUE AND RIGHTEOUS; for He has judged the great harlot who was corrupting the earth with her immorality, and HE HAS AVENGED THE BLOOD OF HIS BOND-SERVANTS ON HER.” Revelation 19:1-2
While there have been many Chapters that were difficult to read sometimes, this one is a Chapter you will want to read over and over again. In this Chapter we have the celebration of Christs victory over Satan and the evil corrupted system of Babylon!
We will also see the Marriage Ceremony finally completed of the Groom (Jesus Christ) and the Bride (Christians) Finally Gods Kingdom is ready to be reestablished forever!
Rejoice, O nations, with His people; For He will avenge the blood of His servants, And will render vengeance on His adversaries, And will atone for His land and His people.” Deuteronomy 32:43
And a second time they said, “Hallelujah! HER SMOKE RISES UP FOREVER AND EVER.” And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who sits on the throne saying, “Amen. Hallelujah!” And a voice came from the throne, saying, “Give praise to our God, all you His bond-servants, you who fear Him, the small and the great.” Revelation 19:3-5
The worship service continues in Heaven and on Earth, as they will soon becoming united as one. Notice it says Babylon is destroyed forever! Give praise to God everyone!
Praise the LORD! Praise the name of the LORD; Praise Him, O servants of the LORD, Psalm 135:1
Then I heard something like the voice of a great multitude and like the sound of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, saying, “Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns. Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready.” Revelation 19:6-7
The marriage ceremony of the Lamb (Jesus Christ) and the Bride (Christians) has come! This was fortold by Christ himself while here on Earth. Notice it says The Bride has made herself ready, are you ready? Is your lamp lit or are you out of oil?
Be dressed in readiness, and keep your lamps lit. Luke 12:35
It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. Then he said to me, “Write, ‘Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.'” And he said to me, “These are true words of God.” Revelation 19:8-9
Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding ceremony of Christ, have you accepted your invitation? Have you repented of your sins and given your life to Jesus? Don’t squander your invitation to eternal life with our Lord and God
You too, be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour that you do not expect.” Luke 12:40
Then I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Do not do that; I am a fellow servant of yours and your brethren who hold the testimony of Jesus; worship God. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” Revelation 19:10
Notice the Apostle John mistakenly went to worship the Angel because of the good news he was telling him about Christ. But the Angel quickly rebuked John to not worship him. However the disciples worshipped Jesus and he never rebuked them!
When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some were doubtful. Matthew 28:17
And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war. His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. Revelation 19:11-13
Remember back in Revelation Chapter 6, the first of the four horsemen was the Antichrist riding on a white horse. This was an imitation of the even that is about to happen now. The real Jesus is coming now, this time as the Lion with eyes of flames of fire and not as the Lamb.
Notice his name is the Word of God as John referred to him in the gospels. The Living Word of God is in flesh
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1
And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses. From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty. And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” Revelation 19:14-16
Notice Jesus is not coming alone, hes coming with an Army of Angels from Heaven! The Word of God is his sword and he devours evil when he speaks! And Jesus title of King of Kings and Lord of Lords is revealed! Jesus will rule the world with a rod of iron
which He will bring about at the proper time– He who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, 1 Timothy 6:15
For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
‘You shall break them with a rod of iron, You shall shatter them like earthenware.'” Psalm 2:9
Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and he cried out with a loud voice, saying to all the birds which fly in midheaven, “Come, assemble for the great supper of God, so that you may eat the flesh of kings and the flesh of commanders and the flesh of mighty men and the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them and the flesh of all men, both free men and slaves, and small and great.” Revelation 19:17-18
The time has come for the final cleansing of the Earth, where all wickedness and evil will be removed forever. Think about all the evil and atrocities going on right now in this world, they will all be gone Forever!
Take away the wicked before the king, And his throne will be established in righteousness. Proverbs 25:5
And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies assembled to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who performed the signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image; these two were thrown alive into the lake of fire which burns with brimstone. And the rest were killed with the sword which came from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse, and all the birds were filled with their flesh. Revelation 19:19-21
Finally Satan and all of his followers were thrown into the Lake of Fire! Final Judgement is coming! All this time Satan thought he would get away with his Sins, Time is Up for Satan and his followers! Get ready for Gods Kingdom, the new Heavens and Earth are coming! Glory to God in Jesus name!
In my precept bible study we are studying the final battles, and I’m also reading in Psalms. I’m amazed how many references there are in the Psalms of the Lord’s return including the battles.
