12/28/17 The Warrior-Judge who is King

READING: Zechariah 5-8, Revelation 19

“His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems.”

Revelation 19:12

It’s one of those days when all you can do is read the Word, meditate on it, let it sink in, and just be filled with wonder. It’s the picture of the Lamb of God riding into battle to defeat the enemy:

“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.” (Rev. 19:11-13)

Just reading the words should give us pause. He’s the Lamb who’s already the victor, as symbolized by His riding a white horse. He is righteousness, and He’s always faithful and true. He sees all things with penetrating eyes, and He reigns as the warrior-judge whose garment bears the evidence of the battle. He is the Word of God, but He’s also so majestic and mysterious that His name is beyond human comprehension. 

He’s our Savior. Our Redeemer. Our Sacrifice. Our Substitute. Our Friend. Our Victor. He’s our Lord and King.

Bow before Him and worship.  


  • Take time today to do nothing but worship Jesus.
  • When you see the realities of evil today, remember that Jesus will ultimately defeat it all.

PRAYER: “Jesus, I honor You and You alone. Amen.”
