Re: Verse reading–Revelation 19:11-21, 20:1-10 (day two)
“King of Kings and Lord of Lords.” This name is another take on the name God reveals to Moses: I AM THAT I AM. To make the claim that the triune God—Father, Son, Holy Spirit—is merely the strongest being of all fails to articulate the necessity of God. We don’t need a cosmic bouncer who’s got our back. We need our existence—and the existence of all things—made possible in the first place. God is the source, the ground, the origin, the finale. Nothingness is the only alternative to God, but even that is sheer nonsense, because we can’t even envision the concept of nothingness without relying on God who makes such envisioning possible. It isn’t for nothing that Paul calls him the “all in all.” Now that’s [R/r]evelation.
