I’m developing an end-time Bible prophecy class (inspired by Christopher Mantei of Wings of the Eagle), and thought it would be helpful for people to know how our returning Jesus is described and what He will do. Part of this includes cataloging the titles of Christ in the Book of Revelation.
While doing so, I decided to read them aloud because each one of them blows my mind when I think about them. I have to tell you, reading them out loud is an experience like I’ve never had. It is something, I think, everyone should experience, and even make a habit of doing so regularly.
To even be able to utter them from your lips in praise is an act of God and, frankly, it just feels good to speak them and to hear them. His titles are His name, and there is power in the name of Jesus (Matthew 1:21; Romans 10:13; 1 John 5:13; John 16:23-24; John 14:13-14; Acts 2:21; Acts 4:12; Psalm 8:9; Psalm 113:3; Psalm 148:13).
There is a refining effect in speaking them and hearing them that escapes explanation, and that can only be understood by the experience. It is an alignment of the heart in fealty to Christ. It is hope among the darkest days ahead. It is victory’s cry.
