occurs in Revelation 19:16; Christ appears there in the manifestation of His judicial capacity and action hereafter as the executor of Divine vengeance upon the foes of God; His name is spoken of figuratively as being upon His "thigh" (where the sword would be worn; cp. Psalm 45:3 ), emblematic of His strength to tread down His foes, His action being the exhibition of His Divine attributes of righteousness and power.
