(From the sermon preached on April 22, 2022, the Last Day of Unleavened Bread.)
7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.
8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
:13 Whose blood is it on His robe?
:15 Notice the phrase "the wine press". Remember this as we continue our study below.
Traditional doctrine says that it is the blood of the Lamb of God, Jesus.
Last Sabbath, I said that now I believe that the most correct translation of Rev. 19:13 "soaked/dyed/stained", sometimes translated as "dipped" is actually "soaked". So later that night, or maybe the next day, I looked to see if I could find confirmation that it was soaked, or dripping as if it was soaked. Here's what I found:
:1 Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments (LXX/AOB says red garments, not dyed) from Bozrah? This that is glorious in his apparel, traveling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save.
2 Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat? (of the winepress.)
3 I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger (wrath), and trample them in my fury (wrath); and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment.
4 For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.
5 And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me; and my fury, it upheld me.
6 And I will tread down the people in mine anger (wrath), and make them drunk in my fury (wrath), and I will bring down their strength (AOB says their blood) to the earth.
I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness (the AOB translates this as "holiness according to the law"), as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.
This matches Rev. 19:8!
This gives even more evidence that Isa. 63 points to Rev. 19, and shows how important it is to use paperback/hardback bibles, and not just internet/electronic bibles. Having the pages open and viewable, makes it more easy to glance across the page and see such important things! That's how I found the Isa. 61 connection.
:14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man (this is Jesus), having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.
16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped. (Jesus' action of reaping his harvest of saints from the earth is finished and accomplished here.)
17 And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. (Not the sickle of Jesus. This is a different one.)
18 And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.
19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.
(This angel is not Jesus who reaped in verse 16. The reaping of vs. 16 was accomplished in that verse alone and is the harvest/resurrection of saints at the 7th Trumpet on the Day of Atonement. Post-Trib, pre-wrath. Verse 17 declares that the angel of verse 19 has a second/different sickle, which reaps judgment on the wicked. Even as Jesus was present with the destroying angel in Exo.12:23-29, Jesus will be present with a destroying angel here. Rev. 19:13-15)
20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs. (200 miles.)
All bible verses considered, we now understand that the blood of Jesus' robe when He returns won't be the blood of the Passover Lamb, but rather the blood of his enemies!
Common sense: Jesus died on the cross naked, as was the custom of the Romans to crucify people naked. He was also already stripped when He was whipped. That's how they did things. Clothing was difficult to attain in those days. So they always preserved clothing from getting torn or bloody. (Except when they practiced the cultural tradition of ripping their own clothes to show how angry they were.) So it would not make sense for his robe to be bloody from his own blood.
