The Word of God
Extracts and comments from Revelation Chps. 1,19 & 20
And He had in His right hand (c)seven stars; and out of His mouth went a (a)sharp two edged sword; and His countenance was as the (b)sun shineth in His strength.
(a) "Two edged sword”, The Word cutting into people of that period.
(b)And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and (c)His name is called The Word of God.
(c) “His name, The Word of God”; from the last! The first to Samuel (1Sam. 9:27), the last, (Rev. 20:4). One of the most beautiful and moving usages is, (John 1:1-13). The most profound being, (John 1:14).
(a)And out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should (b)smite the Nations: (c)and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: (d)and He treads the wine press of the fierceness of the wrath of Almighty God.
(a) When our Lord was before His accusers, prior to His execution, “He opened not His mouth"; (psm. 38:13), see also the Gospel accounts. Now has come a change, (Isa. 11) and many other references.
(a)And the remnant were slain with the sword of Him That sits upon the horse, which sword proceeds out of His mouth: (b)and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.
And I saw thrones, and (a)they sat on them, and judgement was given to them; and the (b)souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus and for the Word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark on their foreheads, or on their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
