Everett's Study Notes on the Holy Scriptures

Revelation 19

Verses 11-21

Christ on the White Horse Defeats the Beast and His Armies: The Battle of Armageddon In Revelation 19:11-66.19.21 we have the description of the final battle that ends the seven-year Tribulation Period. Jesus comes from Heaven riding a white horse with a host from heaven. Other parallel passages tell us that the beast and his mighty army have gathered against the holy city Jerusalem. Jesus opens His mouth and smites them with a mighty slaughter. He then invites the beasts of the earth and the fowls of the air to gather together to feast upon the slain. We find a similar battle described in Ezekiel 38:1 to Ezekiel 39:29 in which Russia and its allies gather against Jerusalem. In this battle the beasts and fowls are also called to feast upon the dead. Thus, many scholars believe that these two passages describe the same event. Some call it the Battle of Armageddon that will take place in the plain of Megiddo.

Revelation 19:13 “and on his head were many crowns” Comments The multitude of crowns on the head of Jesus Christ represents His unlimited rulership over the nations of the earth.

Revelation 19:15 Scripture Reference - Note:

Isaiah 11:4, “But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.”

Revelation 19:17-66.19.18 Comments - The Fowls and Beasts are Called to Devour the Slain We find a parallel passage to this in Ezekiel 39:17-26.39.20.
