In my reading in Revelation 19, and also from Matthew 24, I discovered these six observations of how Christ will appear at the time of His second coming. Very interesting and insightful!
1. HIS APPEARANCE, RIDING ON A WHITE HORSE, WILL BE AS ONE WITH POWER AND GREAT GLORY.
And I saw heaven opened; and behold, a white horse, and He who sat upon it is called Faithful and true…(Rev. 19:11a)
Christ’s great white horse, the way He controls it, and the way the clouds will part and move out of the way when He comes, will all display His power and glory.
2. HIS APPEARANCE WILL BE AS ONE WHO IS FAITHFUL AND TRUE.
And I saw heaven opened; and behold, a white horse, and He who sat upon it is called Faithful and True… (Rev 19:11a)
He will come as He promised He would, thus He will appear as faithful and true.
3. HE WILL APPEAR AS A RIGHTEOUS JUDGE AND A WARRIOR.
…In righteousness He judges and wages war. 12 And His eyes are a flame of fire… (Rev 19:11b-12a)
His eyes will be like a flame of fire, for he will come in righteousness to judge and make war.
4. HIS APPEARANCE WILL BE AS ONE WHO COMES AS KING OVER ALL NATIONS.
.…Upon His head are many diadems; and He has a name written upon Him which no one knows except Himself… 16 And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” (Rev. 19:12b, 16)
On His head will be many crowns—symbolizing that He is king over all nations (v. 2), and He will have written on His robe and thigh the name KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
5. HE WILL APPEAR IN HIS COMING AS A BATTLE SCARED WARRIOR.
And He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood… (Rev 19:13a)
His robe will be bloody, representing the blood of His (and our) enemies, which He has been fighting on our behalf down through the ages. The blood is also His own, for He has paid the price of His own blood to redeem us.
6. HE WILL APPEAR AS GOD, WITH GREAT POWER AND AUTHORITY.
…And His name is called The Word of God. (Rev 19:13b)
His name is called the Word of God, which means that He is the image of the invisible God and the full revelation of God (Jn. 1:1, 14; Col. 1:15; Heb. 1:1, 2).
