Daily Verse: “And I looked, and behold, a white horse! And its rider had a bow, and a crown was given to him, and he came out conquering, and to conquer.” (Revelation 6:2 ESV)

KATHEMAI (2521): “As a verb, is used of Christ’s position of authority on the throne of God.”[1]

Christ’s position.

Jesus returns to conquer the woes of this world one day, riding on a white horse.  When, no one knows.  The original Greek word “rider” means Christ’s position of authority.   No matter how crazy the world around you may seem, God has ultimate control.

 Seeking truth with Jesus will reveal a hard fact; some of the chaos we experience in this life happens because of our choices.  As much as we like to blame God for the pain we feel, He warns us what will happen if we do certain things.

Free will, God’s gift to us.  We have the privilege of choosing; sometimes, we don’t make the best choice.

Jesus teaches.

From His throne, God rules, and Jesus teaches.  When we follow Christ, mimicking His actions, we’ll learn things we can’t find any other way.  When we falter, Jesus lifts us back up.

“Sex,” I said when our group leader asked us about one rule my parents had I didn’t like.  Raised conservatively, Mom told me one thing about sex, “Don’t do it!”  So, of course, I did it because I wanted to know why I shouldn’t.

I should have listened to mom.  My heart got trampled on because of the poor decisions I made in my past.  My mother took her words from scripture; God asks us to abstain.  We have the choice of whether we do or not.

God doesn’t tell us not to do things because He doesn’t want us to have fun.  The Lord protects us with His commands because God understands our hearts and doesn’t want them broken.  But we don’t always listen.

Jesus sits in His position of authority, ruling the world.  In God’s perfect timing, He will conquer the woes we face.  But until then, Christ sustains us with His grace and mercy.  When we seek divine help, we receive unconditional love and understanding.

Give Jesus rule over your heart; let Him do a miraculous work in your life like He has mine.
