Active Military

As many countries around the world hold a special rememberance day for veterans and active-duty servicemen and servicewoman, we should reflect a bit on God's Army.  This Army does exist according to Revelation 19:11-21, and it is an active Army at all times. In other words, there are no veterans of this army. 

The Commander-in-Chief , whose name is The Word of God, leads this Army from in front on a WHITE horse. His attributes are:

(1)  is CALLED FAITHFUL and TRUE;
(2)  and in RIGHTEOUSNESS HE JUDGES and WAGES WAR.
(3) HIS EYES are a flame of fire, and
(4) upon HIS HEAD are many diadems; and
(5) HE has a NAME written upon HIM which no one knows except HIMSELF.
(6) He is clothed with a ROBE dipped in BLOOD;
(7) HIS NAME is called THE WORD OF GOD.

We understand that this is physical as well as symbolic inasmuch as these attritubes are conceptual: FAITHFUL, TRUTH, and RIGHTEOUSNESS. And yet we clearly see through the physical attribtutes: Diadems, Robe, and  unknown WRITTEN Name and a SPOKEN Name, The Word of God., that this was a real Person with human form.

The Army following the Commander-In-Chief, are clothed in fine linen white and clean (not camoflaged). They are following the Commander on white horses. This Army is PURE through and through. In a physical battle today, they would be picked off because they would stand out in their brilliance. The implication here is that if you are in God's Army, you are OUTSTANDING and also a target. Get use to it; thankfully, the Commander is the one who WAGES WAR.  

Looking at this passage, Revelation 19:11-21, we have just been given The Revelation of Jesus Christ
