My daily exploration of the Bible, taking it one chapter at a time. If I do it everyday, it'll take 1189 days.

Revelation 19

Jesus riding on a white horse!

Summary:
Then a crowd praised God for condemning the prostitute. The elders worshipped, and there was a call for worship from the throne. The crowd praised God again, and sang that the Lamb's bride was ready. Those who get to go to the wedding will be stoked!

I worshipped the angel, but he didn't let me.

Then a powerful figure came on a white horse. We was dipped in blood and was at the front of heaven's army. He is the King of all Kings.

The angel called on the birds to dine on the bodies of the fallen sinners. The beast and his army fought against Jesus. The beast and the second prophet beast were captured and thrown into the lake of the fire, and the rest were just killed. The birds ate their flesh.

Key verse:
11. I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war.

My thoughts:
So the beast beat the prostitute, and now heaven's wrapping up the job. In the midst of heaven's full army, there's no hint that they might lose. Yay Jesus! This is quite a cool image here!

So the second beast from before is the miraculous prophet in the unholy trinity. It's now deaded.

So here there are two fates for sinful things. Some are thrown alive into the lake, others are simply killed with the sword. Does this imply an annihilation for all but the worst? Or perhaps humans get annihilated but demons go to hell? Just believe whatever is most convenient. That's what everyone else does.
