“Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. He will rule them with an iron scepter. He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.” Revelation 19:15-16
John sees a rider on a white horse with the name of Faithful and Truth coming out of the clouds in heaven. As he continues to describe the person, he finishes with the statement that he is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Jesus had called Himself the Truth. This is describing Jesus.
In this description, it states that He has a sword coming out of His mouth to strike down the nations. Paul tells you that the Word of God is a sword that you can use. Jesus used it when striking back at the devil when He was tempted in the desert.
God’s Word is living and does not return empty, without fulfilling its purpose. His Word was used to create the heavens and the earth. It will be by His Word that nations are destroyed.
Even today, if a wealthy person commits a crime, and the judge rules that he is guilty, all the money he has cannot change that ruling. Once the ruling is made, it is final. It is by the word of the judge that it is finalized.
The world thinks that it has everything going for it today…money, power, defense and more. None of those things will stand up to the judgment of being guilty before God.
Jesus will rule with an iron scepter. This iron scepter is God’s perfect rule and judgment. There will be no deviation from His Word and requirements allowed.
This shows why He has the name of King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Jesus will rule over everyone, regardless of their position.
It will be better for you to give Jesus that position of being your king, then for Him to have to take that position in judgment. Serve God with all that is in you today, so that you will not have to face His wrath later as He takes rule over you. Give Him the position of Lord of your life.
I pray today that God will reveal His Word to you; that you will give Jesus the position of Lord of your life; that God will strengthen you as you follow Him; that His Word will be real to you; and that you will be a witness to others that Jesus is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
