The White Horse of Christmas


Tonight I just returned from a Christmas Eve Eve Candle Light Service.  The church I attend is so large there are two services; one on Christmas Eve Eve, and another Christmas Eve.

The music was wonderful as usual. The Pastor spoke briefly using some very large Christmas boxes that made a puzzle picture out of them. After stacking 8 boxes on top of each other in 2 columns the puzzle revealed a majestic white horse with you know who riding it.

Over the last few weeks he has been speaking about how Jesus is no longer a baby. Tonight we “Crowned him King of Kings” as he rode his white horse in the last battle.

He used the scripture below to make his point. Revelation 19:11-16

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 wages war. 12 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. 13 He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. 14 The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. 15 Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.”[a] He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. 16On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:

   KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

Jesus was born, lived for 33 years with a 3 year ministry. He died to save mankind, was resurrected, ascended into Heaven.

He is no longer a baby, or a child.

Jesus is alive and still on the throne.

As the words speak to us Armageddon is coming and we will be following Jesus riding on our white horses, dressed in fine linen, white and clean.

As we celebrate the his birth, be glad he was born, but remember he is our King without a crown of thorns. He is our Lord of Lords and no matter what anyone says, he is real and waiting. The battle may not be over, but he already won the war.

I am going to find my white horse. I am ready to ride.
