Wesley's Notes for Revelation 19:11


19:11 And I saw the heaven opened - This is a new and peculiar opening of it, in order to show the magnificent expedition of Christ and his attendants, against his great adversary. And behold a white horse - Many little regarded Christ, when he came meek, riding upon an ass; but what will they say, when he goes forth upon his white horse, with the sword of his mouth? White - Such as generals use in solemn triumph. And he that sitteth on him, called Faithful - In performing all his promises. And True - In executing all his threatenings. And in righteousness - With the utmost justice. He judgeth and maketh war - Often the sentence and execution go together.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 19:11


Re 19:11 And I saw the heaven opened. This implies the opening of a new vision. See Re 4:1 11:19. Where a former vision is continued the formula is "After these things". We now have a series of pictures symbolizing the closing events that inaugurate the Millennium. The first of these is the one before symbolized by the angel that flies through heaven with the everlasting gospel, but now presented in a grand vision of the triumphant march of the Word of God. Behold a white horse. Always the symbol of conquest and triumph. See PNT "Re 6:2". And he that sat upon him [was] called Faithful and True. It is the Lord, who comes as the Word of God. His conquests are effected by the word, but the march is really the march of Christ.
