Revelation Chapter 19
10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
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.

Matthew Henry's Revelation Chapter 19 Bible commentary...
The church in heaven and that on earth triumph, and praise the Lord for his righteous judgments. (1-10) A vision of Christ going forth to destroy the beast and his armies. (11-21)1-10 Praising God for what we have, is praying for what is yet further to be done for us. There is harmony between the angels and the saints in this triumphant song. Christ is the Bridegroom of his ransomed church. This second union will be completed in heaven; but the beginning of the glorious millennium (by which is meant a reign of Christ, or a state of happiness, for a thousand years on earth) may be considered as the celebration of his espousals on earth. Then the church of Christ, being purified from errors, divisions, and corruptions, in doctrine, discipline, worship, and practice, will be made ready to be publicly owned by him as his delight and his beloved. The church appeared; not in the gay, gaudy dress of the mother of harlots, but in fine linen, clean and white. In the robes of Christ's righteousness, imputed for justification, and imparted for sanctification. The promises of the gospel, the true sayings of God, opened, applied, and sealed by the Spirit of God, in holy ordinances, are the marriage-feast. This seems to refer to the abundant grace and consolation Christians will receive in the happy days which are to come. The apostle offered honour to the angel. The angel refused it. He directed the apostle to the true and only object of religious worship; to worship God, and him alone. This plainly condemns the practice of those who worship the elements of bread and wine, and saints, and angels; and of those who do not believe that Christ is truly and by nature God, yet pay him a sort of worship. They stand convicted of idolatry by a messenger from heaven. These are the true sayings of God; of Him who is to be worshipped, as one with the Father and the Holy Spirit.
11-21 Christ, the glorious Head of the church, is described as on a white horse, the emblem of justice and holiness. He has many crowns, for he is King of kings, and Lord of lords. He is arrayed in a vesture dipped in his own blood, by which he purchased his power as Mediator; and in the blood of his enemies, over whom he always prevails. His name is "The Word of God;" a name none fully knows but himself; only this we know, that this Word was God manifest in the flesh; but his perfections cannot be fully understood by any creature. Angels and saints follow, and are like Christ in their armour of purity and righteousness. The threatenings of the written word he is going to execute on his enemies. The ensigns of his authority are his name; asserting his authority and power, warning the most powerful princes to submit, or they must fall before him. The powers of earth and hell make their utmost effort. These verses declare important events, foretold by the prophets. These persons were not excused because they did what their leaders bade them. How vain will be the plea of many sinners at the great day! We followed our guides; we did as we saw others do! God has given a rule to walk by, in his word; neither the example of the most, nor of the chief, must influence us contrary thereto: if we do as the most do, we must go where the most go, even into the burning lake.

Can it be a he or can it be a she?

I believe this verse deals with what can be expected in heaven. If you have done good deeds while on this earth righteousness , you will be clothed in fine linen, clean and white. But if not, you will not be in fine linen. I think this can pertain to different levels of saints that we can expect in heaven. If someone kill 50 people and while in prison finds God and asks for salvation and forgiveness that it will be granted but they will not be dressed in fine linen because their work on earth was not righteous.

Revelation 19 introduces us to a great celebration after the defeat of the mother of abomination. then verse 7, the celebration is now taking a different dimension. Why? it is because the wedding supper of the Lamb is read and the bride I and you is ready. the question now comes, are we ready?

Ronnie, I agree with you fully...I do not have tattoos, I am a Christian that believes God speaks to us through His Word. I read His Word daily, every preacher I tell that too disagrees with me about being written on His thigh. I used to tell my passengers on the city bus I drove about that scripture. I figured God was using that scripture through me to get people to read His Word. His mercy endures and if I am wrong He will forgive my misunderstanding Him. Every time I would share that scripture with someone, right as they got off the bus, thet would ask for the scripture again. Just for the record, Jesus had piercings too. His hands were pierced for you and me.

It does not say it is on his robe that is hanging down....it says his thigh....why not say on his chest and thigh, if they meant clothing...no it says his vesture and thigh. And, Jesus was not talking about tattoos when he was saying to not mark yourself or cut. I do enjoy how hypocrites work and how they work the Bible to suit there needs and versions of right and wrong.

I will slay the trinitarians with the sword of his mouth. Scripture!
