“King of Kings, and Lord of Lords” Rev 19:11-21
A sublime vision of Christ, as He comes to judge the beast, that is, the world-power, which has ever been in antagonism to the principles of His Kingdom. We must distinguish between it and the final judgment. This precedes, that follows, the millennial reign. Compare Mat 24:27 ; Mat 24:29 ; Mat 24:37 ; Mat 24:39 . The blood in which His vesture is dipped is not His own, but that of His foes. See Isa 63:2 . Here at last is fulfilled Psa 2:9 .
Notice the attributes of Christ: He is Faithful , because He will stand by us to the end. He is True , never doing less but always more than He has promised. Pure as flame. He is also in many realms; and the Word of God , that is, the final utterance and complete revelation of the Most High. Let us follow Him! But if we do, we must resemble Him. His robes are naturally white, but we must wash ours, that we may have the right to the tree of life and to enter the city of God. Compare Psa 110:1-7 . This will be the time, also, to which our Lord referred in Mat 13:41 . God’s whirlwind will scatter the chaff.
