Jesus had humble beginnings. He was born in a backwater village of little repute. His family were typical Middle Eastern peasants. Most of his short, three year ministry was spent as an itinerant preacher/teacher, treating most people with dignity and respect. He also was a worker of miracles, though they were of secondary import. He was neither afraid of nor subservient to earthly powers. Jesus served with humility.
As we're already been promised throughout the first thirteen chapters of The Revelation to John, Jesus will return in glorious majesty and splendor.
In his three years of ministry, Jesus said he came to seek and save the lost. That's us. And to that we say, "Amen."
Throughout his three years of ministry, and here in The Revelation to John, Jesus said he will come again to judge and sentence the lost. Those who bear the mark of the beast will not be spared. To put it another way, the first time Jesus came he came as the sower. The second time he will come as the reaper. First time, grace and mercy. Second time, judgment and wrath.
