Christ and His Saints Coming Out of Heaven

Revelation 19:11-21
Until this point, from Revelation 4 and onwards, we have been occupied with actings and events, whether in heaven or on earth, which take place between the rapture of the saints at the coming of the Lord, as described in 1 Thessalonians 4, and His public appearing in glory. The time of His patience has now ended; and heaven opens for Him to come forth in judgment, when “every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him” (Ch. 1:7). It may also be remarked as helping to understand this section of the book, that from Revelation 19:1111And 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. (Revelation 19:11) to Revelation 21:88But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. (Revelation 21:8) we have a consecutive history beginning with the appearing of Christ and closing with the eternal scene in the new heaven and the new earth. Thereafter the Spirit of God returns and exhibits the displayed glories of the heavenly Jerusalem during the thousand years, together with her relation to the earth during this season of millennial blessedness.
