I hope you are having a good week so far!
In Revelation 19:11-16 we read about this vision given to Yochanan (John):
11 Next I saw heaven opened, and there before me was a white horse. Sitting on it was the one called Faithful and True, and it is in righteousness that he passes judgment and goes to battle.
12 His eyes were like a fiery flame, and on his head were many royal crowns. And he had a name written which no one knew but himself.
13 He was wearing a robe that had been soaked in blood, and the name by which he is called is, “THE WORD OF GOD.”
14 The armies of heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses.
15 And out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down nations – “He will rule them with a staff of iron.”c It is he who treads the winepress from which flows the wine of the furious rage of ADONAI, God of heaven’s armies.
16 And on his robe and on his thigh he has a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
What a spectacular vision that was given to Yochanan.
Although Yochanan recorded this vision in words, words can’t truly describe this glorious sight of the King of Kings. When we read this, just picture it in your own mind: Yeshua, the King of Kings in action with the Armies of Heaven!
The vision also shows the various names of Yeshua: Faithful and True, a name written which no one knew but himself ( thus, a special name reserved only for the King of Kings), THE WORD OF GOD; and the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. By reading this, we get better insight into who Yeshua really is. We are learning His names, His purpose, features and characteristics.
In John 14:7 Yeshua also told us that if we know Him, we also know the Father and we’ve seen Him. We don’t get a better view of Yeshua than this vision in Revelation 19:11-16.
As we get to know Him more by reading the Word of God together, we should remember to always give thanks for His grace continues forever (Psalm 136:3; 1 Thessalonians 5:18).
We should give thanks not only for our life, the good but also the bad, the tears, the laughter and the hard times.
Now, let’s listen to the song Melech malchei Hamelachim / מלך מלכי המלכים / King of all Kings
As a final thought, I’d wanted to re-blog these blog posts that are definitively worthwhile reading:
All glory to Yeshua, the King of Kings!
Words to the song:
סלח לי אבי כי חטאתי לך
Slach li avi ki khatati lekha
Forgive me Father for I have sinned against you
מחול לי על כל פשעי
Machol li al kol peshai You have forgiven me of my guilt
גם בימים ששכחתי אותך
Gam b’yamim shshkachti otcha
Also in the days that I forgot you
היית תמיד בחיי
Hayita tamid bechayay
You were always in my life
בכל הדרכים שהלכתי בעצם
Bechol haderachim shehalakti beetsem
In each and every path I took
היית לי נר לרגליי
Hayita li ner leraglai
You were a light to my feet
הייתי עיוור לא ראיתי מעבר
Hayiti iver lo rayiti meever
I was blind and I could not see beyond
למה שהביטו עיניי
Lemah shehibitu aynai
What my eyes beheld
מלך מלכי המלכים תודה על חיים
Melech malchei Hamelachim todah al hayim
King of all Kings thank-you for life
על אושר על בכי על צחוק
Al osher al bechi al tschok
For happiness for tears and for laughter
גם שקשה לפעמים גם אז אלוקים
Gam kshekashe lilamim gam az elokim
Also when it’s hard at times even then Lord
אתה לעולם לא רחוק
Ata leolam lo rachok
You are never far away
