Scripture:  Revelation (NIV) 19:11 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. 14 The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean.
19 Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to make war against the rider on the horse and his army. 20 But the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who had performed the miraculous signs on his behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshipped his image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulphur. 21 The rest of them were killed with the sword that came out of the mouth of the rider on the horse, and all the birds gorged themselves on their flesh.

Observation:   This chapter covers the culmination of wars: The Rider, known as Faithful and True, on the white horse followed by the armies of heaven verses the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies.   It will be a one-sided war; it could be said 'a one-individual war.'   One army will be observing, and cheering on, its Champion; the other army will be wiped out.

Application:   It goes without saying, 'The key is to be in the right army!'   I do not have to wait for that day to cheer on my Champion!     Let's get some practice here where we now live.

Prayer:     Jesus, you are the amazing Rider on the white horse!     You are Faithful and True!     You are the Living Word of God!   Your holiness directs your justice.   You are ever at war against sin.   In death you defeated satan!   With the word of your mouth you will defeat all satan's armies!  Your life is MUCH MORE POWERFUL than your death!   And it is your life in me!      Amen
