The Sword of Him

“And the remnant were slain with the sword of Him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of His mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.” Revelation 19:21

The remnant which is herein written of is the remainder of those who chose not to follow Jesus Christ.  After the Great Tribulation, when all of the Saints return on the backs of white horses behind the Lord GOD, Jesus Christ, everyone who took the mark of the beast and allowed themselves to be deceived by the Devil will decide to join with Satan against Jesus.  It will be a battle.  But this battle will be one sided, for Christ Himself will defeat them all with the same thing He has been trying to save them with since He told it to the prophets, the apostles, and each and every one of us who believe.  He will defeat them with the Word.

The Sword is the Word, and the Word is the Truth, and the Truth is all about Jesus.  In fact, Christ said:

“I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.” John 14:6a

Jesus is the Truth, and He alone can set men free, but if those men choose to remain bound by denying Jesus, then Christ will defeat them with the same Truth that they denied – Himself.

Jesus Christ is the Way.  He is the only Way.  The rest of the scripture above tells us that no one, not even one, can get to the Father unless they come through Jesus (John 14:6b).  Everyone wants to go to a Heaven of their own making.  Just ask a child what they think Heaven will be like and see how they respond differently than what you may think Heaven will be like.  The truth about Heaven is that it is plain and simply being in the very Presence of our Father God for all eternity.  The Bible is very clear that there are mansions and streets of gold (John 14:2;Rev 21:21).  All of our needs will be forever met by a faithful GOD.  The Bible also says that GOD will be amongst His people (Rev 21:3).  So, though there may be things that our imaginations cannot fathom, and possibly things we associate joy here on earth with, the main blessing of Heaven is the Presence of GOD.  That is the only Heaven.  There is but one.  The only Way to get there, per the Word of Almighty God, is through Jesus Christ.

So, I tell you this truly and honestly, and in loving humility.  You can accept Jesus now and be saved, spared an eternal hellfire, or you can go it your own way and fall, eventually to only be brought back around to be confronted by the Word of GOD which you had denied.  Which will you choose?  I know my choice.

“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a Name which is above every name: that at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in Heaven, and things in Earth, and things under the Earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Phillipians 2:9-11


“And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15
