Friday – February 9th – Revelation 19:19     -----     
19:19) And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army.
The Daily Walk Bible inspirational thought for today:

    Wow it is already Friday! With Sunday just around the corner and many of you making plans to be in the building for worship, I wanted to give you an opportunity not to come empty handed when you arrive. Our Food-4-Hope-and-More ministry is always in need of all of our ongoing support. Serving those in our area who might need an occasional walkalong with a grocery sack of food, this ministry reaches out to provide that support through our local schools. Our current list of food items includes pasta sauce, noodles, granola bars, peanut butter, jelly, and fruit snacks. The “and More” part of the ministry provides general hygiene supplies including travel size deodorants, soaps, shampoos, and feminine products. Thanks for your amazing support of this community focused ministry.  

     In our pick verse today, John now writes what he sees transpiring before him as this final battle prepares to begin. From his spot in the desert, John has been watching the rider descend from Heaven. Now his gaze begins to take in the sights around him as the forces of evil are busy gathering their worldly troops to make war against the rider on the great white horse. We are moving at last to the fulfilment of the theme verse for the entire book of Revelation that John stated in the opening chapter: “Look, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the peoples of the earth will mourn because of Him (1:7). Having seen way too many Hollywood movies we might be anticipating a gigantic battle scene of swords flashing and bodies flawing as Jesus rides to victory. However, we will see in the next two verses that this battle was over before it even began.
