I believe this will be the last encouragement from Revelation for now. This journey through Revelation began back at the first of September. For me there have been highs and lows. The most beautiful thing to me is that in the last book of the Bible, the last stanza in His love letter to us, He lays it all out there. He tells us how things will “end” only to tell us about the new beginning He has planned for the children of God. He also reveals to John and the Churches that’s us, many, many, facets of His glorious name. To God be the Glory.
On September 25, I posted “ JESUS HOLD THE LAST NOTE,” It is a compilation of His names in the first three books of Revelation. Holy Spirit showed this picture:
“I envisioned the Savior. He was standing with arms outstretched like an opera singer, singing a song, and holding the last note for a very long time. I could hear Him sing, and boldly declare, “I am Jesus Christ. I am the First and the Last. I am the Amennnnnnnnnnnnnn!” Holy Spirit showed me that the book of Revelation is like a fermata that facilitates the cadenza, the brilliant, virtuosic display of Jesus Himself as King of kings, in the final paragraphs of our love letter from the Lord.” – Tammy Phillips from JESUS HOLD THE LAST NOTE (click here to read if you missed it.)
Below is a treasury of His Names from Revelation 5-22. Be encouraged as your read!
Satan, the great pretender, was described “like” a lion in 1 Peter 5:8. Jesus, our brave, strong, and mighty hero, is the Lion of the tribe of Judah. (Revelation 5:5,9) I see Him and the “King of the beasts.” He is King of Satan, King of the Antichrist Beast. King of the false prophet. He of all their followers. The elders in heaven describe Jesus as a lion. John was expecting to see the Lion and he saw “a lamb as it had been slain.” (Revelation 5: 6,7) I am sure in the spirit he saw the scars of Jesus from his beating and crucifixion. Jesus’ scars told the story that He should be dead, but He was and is very much alive.
Jesus is the Lamb (Revelation 5: 8,9)who offered himself up for us. He was the sacrificial Lamb who paid the price for our sins. He was meek, mild, and gentle. He allowed himself to be slaughtered for us. He gives us every opportunity to follow Him into His kingdom where He is…
Lord of lords and King of kings (Revelation 17:14). There have been, and are, so many evil leaders in the world. Instead of doing good with the power and authority they have been given, they choose to do evil. Personally, I look forward to the day “that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of [things] in heaven, and [things] in earth, and [things] under the earth; and [that] every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ [is] Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:11 KJV) All the leaders driven by money, power, and Satan himself will one day know the only King and Lord is Jesus.
When Satan has exhausted all his resources to gain world domination and Jesus is ready to return the sky will unfold to reveal Him, the One called Faithful and True. (Revelation 19:11) He is the one we can trust. He is the one in which we can always be confident. He is “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8 KJV) He keeps His word. If He makes a promise, we can bank on it. He is True. He is the real deal, true and genuine. He is not fake. He is not hidden nor concealed but revealed. He loves truth, speaks truth and is the Truth.
Jesus is also called the Word of God. (Revelation 19: 13). “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God,” (John 1:1 KJV) and end the was the Word of God. All things were made by “the Word” ; and without “the Word” was not anything made that was made. In the Word was life; and the life was the light of men.” (John 1:3-4 KJV). The Word was the creative force that formed the world, and the Word is the force that will end the world as we know it.
I have said this before. Nike is not creative nor original in their branding. The billions of dollars Nike has made is a feeble attempt to brand “victory.” Victory was originally branded on clothes 2000 years ago. It was an original God idea. We see it in Revelation 19:16 when Jesus returns wear clothes designed by God and branded KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS on His robe and on His thigh. I absolutely love this picture of Jesus.
Jesus is pictured as ruling and reigning Christ, the Anointed and appointed. (Revelation 20: 4)
Jesus tells us that He is the Alpha and Omega, Beginning and the End, the First and Last. He had the first word, and he has the last. And He declares the end is near and He IS coming quickly. (Revelation 22:13)
“I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, [and] the bright and morning star.” (Revelation 22:16; 5: 5,9 KJV).
The Root and Offspring of David: This is a Messianic title of Jesus. (Isaiah 11:1). Jesus is both the Creator of King David and His descendent. The Bright and Morning star. This is also a Messianic title. (Numbers 24:17). The Messiah has spoken. He is coming and He lets us know.
I enCOURAGE you to hear the sweet melody of our precious Savior revealing Himself to you Name by Name. Be encouraged. He is the Champion. He is the soon and coming King. To God be the Glory! Thanks for sticking with me through this journey.
“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with you all. Amen.” (Revelation 22:21 KJV)
