In Revelation, the final book of the Bible, in chapter 19, verses 11 through 16, John beholds Jesus riding on a white horse and called him Faithful and True, restoring the people’s hope. Jesus has never left our side and has given us hope, as well. He has opened blocked pathways and because of him we know that all are worthy. Jesus is King of Kings and Lord of Lords and has dominion over all other rulers.
Why you may ask does Jesus deserve his lofty title? Our pastor gives us three powerful reasons. The first reason is because of who he is. Jesus is faithful, and he is true. Because he is faithful, we can always depend on him. He is a promise keeper. Therefore, we owe him our unwavering allegiance. Because he is true, he is worthy of our trust.
Secondly, Jesus deserves his title because of what he does. The Lord makes righteous judgements and wages war on our behalf. He fights for us when we do not have the fortitude, and when we lack the courage. All we must do is be present because the battle belongs to him.
Lastly, he is deserving because of what he says. The word of God is his weapon. The word slays all enemies. He has no need for guns, knives or weapons of mass destruction. His word frightens our adversaries. God’s word is our weapon and has sustained us for over 400 years in this our tortuous, majestic, beloved country. The word is the weapon of choice for the believer. Keep it in on your tongue and use it for the victory.
Jesus, Faithful and True, warrior and defender of righteousness, ride on! You are the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, so ride on!
