Amazing Similarities of Prophecies in Jeremiah and Revelation

Prophesy on the new King from Jeremiah 23:5,6 to Revelation 19:11-16.

If you are a student of the Bible, you will immediately recognize the characteristics of the New King of Jeremiah 23:5,6 not only as the Lord Jesus Christ but as the same in words and conepts with the similar passage of Revelation 19:11-16. And suddenly we have gone all the way through the Prophesy of the Bible and "the gradual revelation of God in the Bible coming to an eternal climax in Christ" from Jeremiah to Revelation, from 626 Before Christ to the first century after Christ, from before the Captivity in Babylon to years after the Restoration.

Much of your comfort and edification surely comes from the reality that you have access from God to a book of so much truth, a book that can tell you so much about history and the history of God’s dealings with man, simultaneously telling you somethning about the nature and character of God, as well as the way He deals with His own people today, how He deals with you! Do you realize that for example the only real hard evidence that Solomon’s Temple ever existed comes from the Bible as so far there has never been any significant archaelogical evidence from below Herod’s old reconstructed temple in Jerusalem of the original temple that Solomon built.

"Now I saw heaven opened, and behild, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and inrighteousness He judges and makes war...He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, andHis name is called The Word of God.....Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword {the Bible}, that with it He should strike the nations...And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:



(Revelation 19:11-16)

Compare the characteristics of this New King promised in Jeremiah and guranteed in Revelation.

1. Characteristics of the New King in Revelation.

(1). The New King is "Faithful" (19:11). You can depend on Him to be without sin, tempted in all points like as we; and furthermore presently at the right hand of God in heaven preparing to come get us in great power and glory while always and ever faithfully making intercessions to God for the sins we confess to God.

(2). The New King, Jesus, is True (19:11), the equivalent of personnnified truth and truth of God.

(3). He is both righteous and judges according to righteousness. (19:11)

(4). This New King makes war: now through the sword of the Word of God, the Bible, and after the Second Coming through His legions of angels (19:11).

(5). This New King Jesus paid the price for our salvation in the Crucifixion on the Cross and that is the reason John sees His robe dipped in blood, blood for the atonement of the sins of the world, God’s own provision for the salvation of the world. (19:13)

(6). This New King is also called "the Word of God" (19:13) so you can easily identify Him as the Lord Jesus Christ about whom the Apostle John wrote in the Gospel of John, "in the beginning was the Word" (John 1:1).

NOTE: By the way this is where the Apostle John got his word for Christ, the Word in order to begin the writing of the Gospel of John.

(7). He rules supreme at the Second Coming as the armies of heaven follow behind Him. (19:14)

2. Characteristics of the New King in Jeremiah.

(1). Out of the lineage of David as presented in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke will come a King for the eternal kingdom (Jeremiah 23:5).

(2). The days of the Christ are "coming", indeed did come approximately 500 years after predicted and in the First Century and in Palestine (23:5).

(3). This King will be the head shepherd of a flock of shephers for the new people of God which will be built starting with the "remnant" of God’s flock of Jews "out of all countries where I have driven them" (23:3).

(4). For a few hundred years in the land of Palestine "they shall be fruitful and multiply"; and for ages and into eternity through the kindom established by Christ on earth, the New King {a new King has to have a new Kingdom}, they shall along with all of God’s expanded New People of Jews and Gentiles be eternally fruitful and multipy and prosper. (23:3,4)

NOTE: Can you really read all that into Jeremiah 23? Yes, when you throw in all the rest of prophesy before and after Jeremiah, especially Isaiah at least one hundred years before; and all the rest of the Bible, including John and the other Gospels and the rest of the New Testament explanations! Why cheat ourselves on Revelations, when we alredy have the total Word of God. We too can use the Bible as the Sword of Truth.
