A Favorite Biblical Verse – Revelations 19

“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.  His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns.  He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself.  He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God.  The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean.  Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations.  He will rule them with an iron scepter.  He treads the wine-press of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty.  On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:  King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  And I saw an angel standing in the sun who cried in a loud voice to all the birds…

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.  But the beast was captured and with him the false prophet who had performed the miraculous signs on his behalf.  With these signs he deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped his image.  The two of them were thrown alive into the burning lake of sulfur.  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. ”  Revelations 19: 11-21.

It goes on to include Michael seizing the dragon, the devil; Christians given the power to judge; the newly converted Christians who were converted after the rapture, who did not accept the mark of the beast, and who were martyred during the tribulation, They reign with Christ for one thousand years.  and are part of the thousand-year reign. After this the dead are judged, death and hell are destroyed, and there is a new heaven and a new earth.

My references are from the Holy Bible,  and since different Bibles have different publishers actual words will vary, but the meaning is usually the same.
