The armies that were in heaven followed Him on white horses, wearing pure white linen.
From His mouth came a sharp sword, so that with it He might strike the nations. He will shepherd them with an iron scepter. He will also trample the winepress of the fierce anger of God, the Almighty.
And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS
