“And I saw the opened heaven. And consider this. A horse, a white one, and He who is seated upon it who is called Faithful and Dependable. And in righteousness He administers justice and makes war. And His eyes were a flame of fire. And upon His head there were royal crowns, many of them. He has a name which has been written which no one knows except He himself. And He is clothed with a garment which has been stained with blood. And His name has been called, and the name is on record, The Word of God.

“And the armies which are in heaven kept following Him [in a steady procession, rank after rank] upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, shining, bright, clean. And out of His mouth there proceeds a sword, a sharp one, in order that with it He should strike down the nations. And He himself treads the wine press of the wine of the wrath of the anger of God, the Omnipotent. And He has upon His garment and upon His thigh a name which has been written, King of kings and Lord of lords.”
