Hail the King!
A few months ago I was teaching my children out of the Book of Revelation. I had heard of a preacher who exalted Christ in a very masculine way teaching how he came out of the heavens with an army of angels on a horse with a sword coming out of his mouth ready for war on earth. I knew my sons would just love it (why are sons naturally drawn to violence and bloodshed?) So I attempted to draw the entire scene on our school board. My version was very opposite of the picture above since I possess no artist abilities---my Jesus and angels were stick figures and the horses looked liked pitiful clumps of marshmallows----but they LOOOOOVVVVVEEEEDDDD it!
Then I found this beautiful piece above. I beckoned my sons to come and take a look. Their eyes were wide and filled with wonder---there was complete silence and then a reverent whisper came:
Wow indeed, let's hail the Almighty King in reverence, praise and worship for His kingdom is at hand!
