Behold, A White Horse
by Wayne Blank
"And the ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have not yet received royal power, but they are to receive authority as kings for one hour, together with the beast. These are of one mind and give over their power and authority to the beast; they will make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those with Him are called and chosen and faithful." (Revelation 17:12-14 RSV)
"Then I saw heaven opened and behold, a white horse! He who sat upon it is called Faithful and True"
References to horses in the Scriptures most-often speak of them as animals of war, with chariots or cavalry. Christ Himself will return in such a way.
"Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! He who sat upon it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a Name inscribed which no one knows but Himself. He is clad in a robe dipped in blood, and the Name by which He is called is The Word of God." (Revelation 19:11-13 RSV)
Christ will be far from alone. He will also have power that no nation can stop.
"And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, followed Him on white horses.
Nevertheless, the world, as a whole, will attempt to fight the Son of God.
"And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth with their armies gathered to make war against Him who sits upon the horse and against his army." (Revelation 19:19 RSV)
Christ will be victorious. With His victory, peace on earth will begin, in which nations will thereafter "beat their swords into plowshares."
"And the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who in its presence had worked the signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped its image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulphur.
