donkeys and horses:day four

[Read & meditate on Revelation 19.11-21. How will Jesus’ return be different from his first time here? What are the implications?]

The first time, Jesus came in peace, humility and vulnerability. The second time, Jesus comes in justice and power riding on a horse, wearing a robe dipped in blood. The first time opens the door for renewal and restoration. The second time brings everything to a conclusion. Unfortunately, for some, this means that time is up. The first time, he came with open arms. The second time, he comes with a drawn sword.
