Prophesies from God’s word yet to be fulfilled

I saw Heaven standing opened, and there before me was a white horse, who’s rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war. His eyes are like a blazing fire and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he, himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood and his name is the word of God. The armies of Heaven are following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. He will rule them with an iron scepter. He treads the winepress with the fury, the wrath of God Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has his name written, “King of Kings and Lord of Lords.”

(Revelation 19:11-16)

Prophesies from God’s word yet to be fulfilled

After this, I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count from every nation, tribe, people, and language standing before the throne and in front of the lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands, and they cried out in a loud voice, ‘Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne and to the Lamb.’ All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four-legged creatures. They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshipped God saying, ‘Amen. Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honour and power and strength be to our God forever and ever.’ Amen.” (Revelation 7:9-12)
