Revelation 19:11, 13, 19-21 – The Judgment of Sin

Revelation 19:11, 13, 19-21
11
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

-This section of scripture gives us a glimpse into the coming day when Jesus Christ will return to judge sin on the Earth.  This should be a lesson to all of us on the futility of not being on the Lord’s side.  Look at the gathering of forces in v19 and how anticlimactic the ending is.  There is no glorious battle to be fought against the Lord, people and devils alike are simply ended.  The beast and false prophet are dropped off into hell, and the rest are slain very unceremoniously and their flesh given to the birds.  There is no pride or glory to be found in rejecting God; those who do will ultimately find only dishonor and worst of all, damnation.
