God is faithful to his word and has foretold us what it will be like before the return of his beloved Son, who will not be sitting on a donkey but will be upon a white horse speaking as a sharp sword the words of his Father! (Revelation 19:11-15). And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
It is also these very words that our Father has given us as a protection within the whole armour offered to his people. (Ephesians 6:17). Ephesians 6:10-17. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
We find the loving kindness of the Lord as we read that the days will be shortened for the elects sake. Mathew 24:21, 22. For the faithful of God will be kept from the hour of temptation which will try all who are upon the earth. (Revelation 3:10-13). Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
We are told not to fear at this time anything we suffer for the faithful receive the crown of life! (Revelation 2:10,11).
Daniel was told of this time long before it even would happen, a time of war in heaven when Michael and his angels would fight and satan would be cast into the earth for the last time, but the saints will overcome him by the blood of the Lamb and their testimony.(Daniel 12:1-3).(Revelation 12:7-12). And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.
It is vital to the Believer in Christ to learn and know the word of the Lord, for the heavens and earth shall pass away, but the word of the Lord written on the hearts and minds of the people of God will remain forever! (Matthew 24:33-35).
