We believe that it is important to be thoughtful when considering God's Word, the Bible. We hope you will check back from time to time for thoughts on God's Word and how it applies to us daily.
"And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS." -Revelation 19:16
Christ is above all. He is one with the Father, equal in authority and power. He is the firstborn over all creation, through whom all things are held together. There is no other name given under heaven by which we must be saved. The point to all of this is our Lord's power is unimpeachable. His sovereignty is without challenge. If our fears are fixed on this world's present petulant princes, we can take peace in the supreme knowledge that Christ is Lord over all and nothing is beyond His grasp or outside of His dominion. No ruler who ever lived has had such complete sovereignty. He alone is God over all. May He be high and lifted up forever. Amen.
"Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword that with it He should strike the nations..." -Revelation 19:15
The word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.* Our Lord's warfare is not waged with weapons formed by human hands, and neither is ours. The creator of ALL things spoke His creation into existence, holds it together in His being, and will judge the deeds of nations by His holy words with the sword of His mouth. Help us know Your words, Oh God! To be found abiding in Your word, sanctified by Your word. Your word is truth.
"He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him..." -Revelation 19:13-14
Though your sins be as scarlet, they will be made white as snow.* We are cleansed, bleached, by the blood of our Lord. His robes bear testimony of His suffering, having lost His blood on our behalf that we might be made white, clean, and fresh. Our garments are provided by His hand alone and bear no marks of punishment or struggle. We are robed in His righteousness when we should be dressed in potato sacks! The testimony of His great love toward us, Christ drenched in blood, stands in heaven as a testament to a paid debt, the purchase of our souls.
