The garment dipped in blood!
Scripture reading for December 25th: Revelation 19, Psalm 141-42, Proverbs 10
Key Scriptures: Revelation 19:11-16 “Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The One sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems, and He has a Name written that no one knows but Himself. He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the Name by which He is called is The Word of God. And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following Him on white horses. From His mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. On His robe and on His thigh He has a Name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.”
John beheld an awesome sight. Heaven opened and Jesus the King of kings rode forth on a blazing white horse wearing a blood-dipped robe. Following were a great host of saints, all wearing garments made white by His blood. A sharp sword came from His mouth to make war and rule over His enemies. His own bloody garment showed His love for His people. He is their defender!
Faith Confession: I believe and pray that I will be counted in the number of those following the King of Kings in His blood-dipped robe. An old hymn states: “We shall see the King when He comes!” Amen!
Psalm 141:8 “But my eyes are toward You, O God, my Lord; in You I seek refuge; leave me not defenseless!”
