“Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His 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. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.”
-John saw a vision of Jesus Christ riding a white horse which was a common practice among kings & emperors. As the Prince of peace, High Priest, King of kings & Lord of lords; Christ will come like a thief to judge righteously & bring conquest by covenant through His blood evident on His robe & crowns on His head. This is the eternal covenant He made with us through His blood that has power over all evil, all sickness, sins & the devil himself who will be chained by archangel Michael through the power of the blood of the Lamb (Rev 12:11). Christ reminds us that He is the Word of God; intimating that His Word is true & we should not speculate but take heed to obey Him for everything written in it will come to pass according to His will; in order to fulfill His purpose.
The theme horse has consistently reveals evidence of war all through the Word & at the same time revelation of Christ as our Saviour for victory belongs to Him. It also reveals the salvation of the Lord depicted as a passage/door through the bronze mountains in Zechariah’s vision, separation of waters of river Jordan by prophet Elijah just like Moses did during the deliverance of the Israelites from bondage, all these events reminding us that Christ is the Door to eternal life. The theme also manifests that Christ is the Word of God & through His blood shed for all mankind on the cross we receive power & deliverance from all sins, war, famine, death & all battles of the enemy who comes to kill, steal & destroy. All these events of war yielding peace inform us that God is Just & His word will come to pass. Christ also reveals to us that He does not take pleasure in the death of anyone, & reminds us to repent & live (Ezek 18:32). Christ is the Door & through His blood we obtain salvation & eternal life with Him forever. We are called to let him reign in our hearts for we are His temples & submit all things to Him; for He is full of mercy & His love for us endures forever.
You are worthy Jesus to take the scroll & open its seals for You were slain & have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every tribe, tongue, people & nation. You have made us kings & priests to our God & we shall reign on earth, receive all the glory & praise. You are Sovereign Lord for You created the heavens & the earth, & died for our sins, cleanse us from all sins, cover us with Your blood Jesus & give us the grace to forgive those who trespass against us. Deliver us, our families, friends, leaders & nation from all evil, sicknesses, weaknesses, sins, burdens & help us to submit to Your holy will & seek You first in all things. All victory, honor & strength belongs to You Jesus; now & forever. Amen
