The Rider on a White Horse
v Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, w a white horse. And He who sat on him was called x Faithful and True, and y in righteousness He judges and makes war.
z His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. a He had a name written that no one knew except Himself.
b He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called c The Word of God.
d And the armies in heaven, e clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.
Now f out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And g He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. h He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
And i He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:
j KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, k "Come and gather together for the supper of the great God,
l "that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great."
m And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army.
n Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and o those who worshiped his image. p These two were cast alive into the lake of fire q burning with brimstone.
And the rest r were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. s And all the birds t were filled with their flesh.

1 Corinthians 6:9
Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites.
Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness.
Envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
