.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.    Opened Note 11a explains when. Next when did or will Christ ride the white horse? See the extra note.
  He [who] sat Under different symbols, He will come on clouds mr1462. See note 11b.
  Judge and make war Note 11c
.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.   Eyes, crowns, name Note 1912a.
  Name See note 1912b.
.13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.   Clothed ... blood See is6301-6. Also re0506.
  Vesture From himation. See on mt0540. Here the coat of a rider or commander.
  Word of God He will be the expression of the Father when He comes the second time as He was the first time jn0101.
.14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.   Armies See note 14. Also mt2431, mt2531, re1714, mt2207.
.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.   Mouth ... Sword By the word of the Lord, the earth and its inhabitants came to be ps03306. Now the end-time wicked are punished with death. More in note 15.
  Winepress See extra note.
.16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.   Vesture and on his thigh Did blood on his vesture v13 and on His thigh v15, demonstrate His office of King and Lord? I believe so, note 16.
.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;   Standing in the sun Perhaps to show the error of sun worship. See note 17 or the day of honor to the sun.
 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.   Flesh of captains ... mighty men ... horses Who were no match for the one on the white horse and were about to be slain. Note 18.
.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.   War More precisely, "the war" re1614.
  To make war Those who are committed to the massive end-time religious movement unite to force the behavior of the faithful minority re1217 and hence fight against God ac0539. See re1714, note 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.   Beast See re1703, re1301.
  False prophet The one who does miracles re1313 and supports the beast Protestant America. He is a prophet speaking for the beast.
  A lake of fire Remember that the two are religio-policical systems. Of course real people support them. See note 20.
.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.   Remnant The word points to a group who are left. In this context, they are the wicked left after the two systems are sent to the symbolic fire.
