The Victor The Spoils

John picks up the scene as it were after the pouring out of God's wrath upon the whole global system of Mystery Babylon. By the parallel account we see this as the lead up to the event of the battle of Armageddon

Rev 19:1 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:
Rev 19:2 For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.
Rev 19:3 And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.
Rev 19:4 And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.
Rev 19:5 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.
Rev 19:6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.
Rev 19:7 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.
Rev 19:8 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.
Rev 19:9 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.
Rev 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. (KJV)

Verse 1 corresponds with the end of the seals - (by the completion of the sealed 144,000 before God - the vast multitude without number.) It is also concurrent to the scene of the lamb on mount Zion (end of the trumpets), and with the sealed saints stood upon the sea of glass (end of the vials). The great voice of much people in verse 1 also corresponds to Rev Ch12:v10, Rev Ch14:v2 and Rev Ch16:v18 as the completion of the rest period at the end of the seals, trumpets and vials respectively.

Verse 2 completes the setting of the vengeance of those slain and under the altar as in the fifth seal: However the praise in heaven of the saints is such that they heap praise up to God for being the victor, whereas outwards from the throne and from the 24 elders, then to the 144,000 and the greater multitude the answer is given that this is the will of Almighty God, who is totally omnipotent. This is not a hard won victory, but the squashing of something less than a bug, in a single work. The final completion of the wrath of the vials is merciful compared to the torment that could have been given. The city's smoke ascends forever - there is no further judgement upon the incorporated planet after it's destruction. The later judgement however is not against lifeless corporations, but against people who will be cast into the lake of fire. God is satisfied with the destruction of the city - but His justice and mercy are not satisfied yet - upon all those whom are dead and to be raised.

Verse 7 picks up the marriage of the lamb: the separation of the harvest of the Earth by the first angel sat upon a cloud that gathers the elect towards the Lord's right, as opposed to those that are gathered to the left by the second angel bearing a sickle, that casts the vine of the earth into the winepress of God's wrath. The marriage is a union of the heavenly host and of the redeemed elect. The wife is now the body of Christ, as completely without tares. All in the marriage are clothed with the righteousness of Christ, and highly blessed are those called to the marriage supper - they have been chosen by God and will live forever with Him after the marriage is completed. This concludes the true sayings of God - all God's promises are fulfilled to His people at the end of the "marriage supper", it continues into eternal life.

John falls down to worship the angel and is reproved for it - a clear indication that the angel is John's equal in the marriage of the lamb, that the heavenly host includes all those believers stood upon the sea of glass, the multitude of the redeemed in Christ. The harvest has been gathered to the Lord. It is time for the last day.

Rev 19:11 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.
Rev 19:12 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.
Rev 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
Rev 19:14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

Rev 19:16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
Rev 19:17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
Rev 19:18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
Rev 19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
Rev 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
Rev 19:21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh. (KJV)

We now enter the setting for the last battle of Armageddon. Heaven is opened and John perceives the truth of the marriage: The marriage is the union of the elect to the heavenly host as the one bride of Christ, whereas those apart to the left of God are cast out of the world into the lake of fire. This is the judgement of God.

The white horse refers to the induced group C3 to form GF(4)* in the K4 ultrafilter, as it were for the K4 group to have "life in Himself" as the Father has "life in Himself." (i.e. the octal with C7.) The rider is found "in Christ". Rather than as with the first four seals, (where we found the rider together with the horse became the coset of the static K4 subgroup) In this case the rider is then literally, the singleton zero element and not mere unity alone: and the horse and it's rider form the static subgroup. Why? The rider is in view as one whom may sit on the throne of God, as Jesus also sat down with His Father on His throne, He being faithful and true. (c.f. the use of the octal as identity with K4 subgroup addition, and the K4 group as the additive identity on addition in the K4 group's C2 subgroups with the same operation (A v B)c. The "rider" (as zero) shows the return with Christ of all whom have overcome laodicea; and the one that leads them is as the least in the kingdom of God, having overcome in philadelphia, hence the diadem on the thigh and vesture.

What remains is to show whether the elect may judge over each other or just over themselves, whereas the angel in his circuit as least in the kingdom is most apt to judge upon all as to whether they likewise had overcome.

({0,1}, {1}) using (A v B)c becomes a group isomorphic to C2 where 0 = {0,1} has by representation a measure of infinite regression. (Hence the requirement of the trinity for the stability of the model.) In whatever reasonable sense - the angel is given the right to sit as 0, (the singleton) and not as the set that self references as {0,1}. This right of the angel to sit could be universal whereas the group ({0,1}, {1}) is rewritten ({0,x}, {x}) and we may assume that x sits in judgment only on themselves, whereas (0, x) is always valid if the algebra 2x = 0 holds with the group axioms we would expect from GF(2), and the angel may sit and judge all - (we expect God to be foremost in all things of course!)

We know from the scripture "We shall judge men and angels", So why then do we have a situation of seeming inequality between the least and the rest? We may solve the issue with the fact that we are all equal in Christ (Except for the angel, whom is certainly somewhat lower, as being the very least.) Then Christ's letters certainly approve the angel Himself and all the rest that return, being as equivalent to each other follow as able to judge amongst themselves, though not over the least, lest they be undone themselves. (If the least which is separately lower is omitted, then the rest being all equal are likewise in jeopardy for their election on the same principal that every sin is forgivable from the least up.)

The rider on the horse, signified here as called by the name of God, as Faithful and True (also the Word of God) is clothed in a white robe dipped in blood (made clean in the blood of the lamb) He is the victorious overcoming Son. We can consider him a template of the Sons of God, the ultimate inheritance of the whole heavenly host, including all the sealed. We can immediately see the parallel between the name on his thigh and vesture "Lord of Lords and King of Kings" and the reward to the overcoming church in Philadelphia. Also as the angel is one of seven stars in the right hand of God, this is actually the angel or the right hand of God in view - and the least in the kingdom of heaven has this inheritance (He that overcomes, will inherit all things.) Therefore everyone at the right hand of God is represented here and is the bride of Christ - many crowns (all of the crowns of all the believers are upon the head of the rider, as He is made of them all - they are one in Christ and in the Father and one with Christ in them.)

Likewise other rewards to the churches are present (in no particular order) - the new name known only to himself, the authority over the nations, the "crown of life" as in the horse or GF(4)* (eternal life) The separation to the right hand; - salvation from the lake of fire (as in the letters also), the right to eat from the tree of life (healing grace towards obedience and rest.) hidden sustenance from the manna of God (as of the wedding supper) inheriting the morning star - i.e. to be found worthy of being indwelt by the Holy Spirit, and also the right to sit with God in heaven (the throne) and to be found in the book of life with surety.

We are all underpinned by the sacrifice of Christ, the grace we are given is to bring us into a closer and more accurate relationship with the closeness and sovereignty of God. His word is the very life in us, our freedom is His will for us - we live in Him and have our being in Him, we may not be aware of it but he directs all our steps for His own pleasure. We are called the "Word of God".

The angel almost lost this inheritance when he was instructed to repent else "Jesus would come quickly and fight against them with the sword of His mouth." well, as inheritance goes, the right hand of God overcomes and fights with "their" mouth rather than just Christ with His own mouth only. However we can see in this passage that as the rider is sat upon the horse - upon the life of Christ as GF(4)*, it is actually the right hand of Christ and not Christ Himself as the right hand of God the Father - (or as the "right arm").

The angel stood in the sun may be the "angel of the church" as having the Philadelphian reward to become "a pillar in the temple of God" (as stood in the sun octal). Or if the angel properly inherited this honour as the rider, the "sun" angel is a separate identity. The rider may be followed as if he were "the least of the flock" - perhaps this second "sun" angel is the least of the heavenly host, as it were of the great multitude before the throne, and 24 elders etc. We should properly give the rider the identity of the "least" of those dwelling in the "sea of glass" rather than merely the "least" in the "sun octal".

The right hand of God treads the winepress of God's wrath: all believers are safe in Christ in the (sun) octal as those in the left hand "bows" of antichrist are "treaded" out of inheritance. The angel stood in the sun calls the whole heavenly host (the riders army) of every spirit flying in the midst of heaven (coming from or to the marriage no doubt, but not called as the body of Christ as from dwelling on the earth.) to come and destroy the armies of the kings of the earth. The kings of the earth lose - and the beasts (the satanic devices) and all those that employ them are cast into the lake of fire (as outside the marriage of the lamb.) which is destruction outside of the charitable spirit of God. (It could be as the empty set, but might take an eternity to get there.)

The fowls of heaven are filled with the remnant's flesh, a picture that the host of heaven now have dominion over the substance of the land and riches of the earth. To the victor the spoils.
