King of Kings

December 28

Daily Bible Reading: Revelation 19

Verse of the Day: Revelation 19:16 – “And he hath on his garment and on his thigh a name written, King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.”

In the Greek language, they do not have superlatives for words. To create the ultimate superlative, the speaker or writer would repeat the word. We would say, good, better, best, they would say good good.

In today’s reading, we see Jesus coming back on a White Horse with a sharp sword (this is in contrast to the first White Horse and rider in Revelation 6:2). Jesus’ garment had His name or title written on it, He is the superlative King (King King) and the superlative Lord (Lord Lord).

The Battle is the Lord’s, He defeats the Beast and all of his armies by the sword that comes out of His mouth. The Word of God is powerful (Heb. 4:12).

Prayer: Amazing and Powerful Savior, I bow in humble submission to You and Your Will for me today. I seek to walk only in Your Way. Guide me, direct me, lead me in all things.
