Rolling Out the Red Carpet

 

Presented by Pastor Randy Capote

The idiom, "Rolling Out the Red Carpet", is usually used to describe a welcome or greeting for some important person! Many people may instantly think of the Academy Awards and seeing a reporter announce what "star" is arriving and what they are wearing.  However this honor should be reserved for one of more dignity and majesty, like the President of the United States; or even the Pope; or the Queen of England; or some other person of status on the world stage. But for the Christian we should "Roll Out the Red Carpet" one time and for one person! For us that honor is reserved for our returning King, the Lord Jesus Christ! Please join us in considering this critical prophetic event as we study from Revelation 19:11-16

(11) And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war. (12) His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. (13) He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. (14) And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses. (15) From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty. (16) And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
