The Return of the King

The Return of the King

His sword is gird upon His thigh in His glory and majesty! And in His Majesty He rides on triumphantly for the cause of truth, humility, and righteousness.

He is clothed with honour and majesty which are above earth and heaven!

His throne is forever and ever; the sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of His Kingdom. He has loved righteousness (He has delighted in integrity, virtue, and uprightness in purpose, thought, and action) and He has hated lawlessness (injustice and iniquity), therefore His Godhead has anointed Him with the oil of exultant joy and gladness.

He is fairer than the children of men; graciousness is poured upon His lips.

His garments are all fragrant with myrrh, aloes, and cassia.

He is the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, He Who is and Who was and Who is to come, the Almighty (the Ruler of all).

He stands in the midst of the lampstands, clothed with a robe reaching to His feet and with a girdle of gold about His breast.

His head and His hair are white like white wool, as white as snow, and His eyes flash like a flame of fire.

His feet glow like burnished bronze as it is refined in a furnace, and His voice is like the sound of many waters.

He is the only one worthy and entitled to open the scroll and to break its seals because He has overcome and conquered. He is the Lamb that was slain and with His blood He purchased men unto God from every tribe and language and people and nation.

As the Lamb Who was sacrificed, He is deserving to receive all the power and riches and wisdom and might and honour and majesty and blessing! And the power (might and dominion) forever and ever (through the eternities of the eternities)!

Heaven will open, and behold, a white horse shall appear! The One riding it is called Faithful (Trustworthy, Loyal, Incorruptible, Steady) and True, and He passes judgment and wages war in righteousness (holiness, justice, and uprightness).

His eyes blaze like a flame of fire, and on His head are many Kingly crowns (diadems); and He has a Title (Name) inscribed which He alone knows or can understand.

He is dressed in a robe dyed by dipping in blood, and the Title by which He is called is The Word of God.

And the troops of heaven, clothed in fine linen, dazzling and clean, follow Him on white horses.

And on His robe and on His thigh He has a Name (Title) inscribed,


Those with Him and on His side are chosen and called (elected) and loyal and faithful followers.

From His mouth goes forth a sharp sword with which He can smite (afflict, strike) the nations; and He will shepherd and control them with a staff (sceptre, rod) of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath and indignation of God the All-Ruler (the Almighty, the Omnipotent).

Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth shall gaze upon Him and beat their breasts and mourn and lament over Him. Even so must it be. Amen (so be it).

The glory (majesty, splendour and excellency) of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together when they see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with great (transcendent and overwhelming) power and all His Kingly glory (majesty and splendour), and all the holy angels with Him.

Salvation and glory (splendour and majesty) and power (dominion and authority) belong to our God!

For the Kingship and the Kingdom are the Lord’s, and He is the Ruler over the nations. His Kingdom rules over all.

Who is the King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.

Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory.

The nations shall fear and worshipfully revere the name of the Lord, and all the kings of the earth His glory.

The loud voices of heaven will proclaim “The dominion (Kingdom, Sovereignty, Rule) of the world has now come into the possession and become the Kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ (the Messiah), and He shall reign forever and ever (for the eternities of the eternities)!”

And there shall be no more night; we will have no need for lamplight or sunlight, for the Lord God will illuminate us and be our light, and we shall reign as kings forever and ever (through the eternities of the eternities).

Joyfully, let us, as the radiant bride, turn to Him, the One altogether lovely, the Chief among ten thousand to our soul, and with unconcealed eagerness to begin our life of sweet companionship with Him, let us declare “Make haste, my Beloved, and come quickly, like a gazelle or a young hart and take us to our waiting home!”

The Holy Spirit and the bride (the church, believers) say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take and drink the Water of Life without cost.

Let us rejoice and shout for joy (exulting and triumphant)! Let us celebrate and ascribe to Him glory and honour, for the marriage of the Lamb at last has come, and His bride has prepared herself. She has been permitted to dress in fine radiant linen, dazzling and white, for the fine linen represents the righteousness (the upright, just, and godly living, deeds, and conduct, and right standing with God) of the saints (God’s holy people).

“And behold, I am coming speedily. Blessed, happy and to be envied is he who observes and lays to heart and keeps the truths of the prophecy (the predictions, consolations, and warnings) contained in this book.”
