Jesus is humble, but majestic at the same time

The Revelation of the Faithful and True

Behold! I saw heaven's gate wide open,
And on a white horse, a rider spoken.
Called Faithful and True, he came with might,
To judge with justice and wage his fight.

His eyes ablaze like fire bright,
And on his head, many crowns in sight.
A name unknown, he wears with pride,
Dressed in a robe dipped in crimson tide.

His name is the Word of God divine,
And heavenly armies, with him entwine,
Mounted on white horses, clothed in white,
Pure and clean, they shine so bright.

A sharp sword from his mouth does pour,
To strike the nations and settle the score.
An iron scepter to rule and reign,
And tread the winepress of God's righteous pain.

On his robe and thigh, this name we see,
King of kings and Lord of lords, he'll be.
So let us bow to our Savior King,
And let our praises forever ring.

Poem, based on Revelation 19:11-16

Jesus is humble

Philippians 2:5-8: "In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross!"
This passage highlights the fact that Jesus, who is divine, chose to humble himself and become a servant, even to the point of death on a cross.

Matthew 11:29: "Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls."
Here, Jesus invites us to learn from him and describes himself as gentle and humble in heart, emphasizing his approachable and loving nature.

Isaiah 53:2: "He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him."
This passage prophesies about the coming Messiah, describing him as having no outward beauty or majesty that would make him attractive to people. This suggests that Jesus' physical appearance may have been humble and unremarkable.

Matthew 8:20: "Jesus replied, 'Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.'"
This passage highlights Jesus' itinerant lifestyle, suggesting that he did not have a home or possessions that would have contributed to a grand physical appearance.

Mark 6:3: "Isn’t this the carpenter? Isn’t this Mary’s son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon? Aren’t his sisters here with us?’ And they took offense at him."
This passage suggests that Jesus was known as a carpenter and was the son of Mary, a humble background that would not have contributed to an impressive physical appearance.

Jesus did not appear like a mythical figure such as Hercules because his mission was not focused on physical strength or conquest. Instead, Jesus' mission was focused on spiritual redemption and salvation. As the Son of God, Jesus came to earth to show us how to live a life of love and service to others, to reconcile us to God through his sacrifice on the cross, and to establish his kingdom on earth.

Jesus' message was not one of physical power and dominance, but of love and humility. He taught his followers to love their enemies, to turn the other cheek, and to serve others. Jesus did not come to conquer through physical strength or violence, but through his teachings and the power of God's love.

Furthermore, Jesus' physical appearance was not the focus of his message or mission. While the Bible does not provide a detailed physical description of Jesus, it is clear that his focus was on the spiritual realm rather than the physical. Jesus' appearance was not what made him special or worthy of worship; rather, it was his message of love and salvation that set him apart as the Son of God.

Jesus majestic appearance

Revelation 19:11-16: "I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. 'He will rule them with an iron scepter.' He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: king of kings and lord of lords."

This passage describes the future return of Jesus as a conqueror, with blazing eyes and many crowns. He will come to judge and wage war, and he will rule the nations with an iron scepter.

Matthew 24:30-31: "Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other."
This passage describes the future return of Jesus on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. He will come with his angels to gather his elect from all over the world.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17: "For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever."
This passage describes the future return of Jesus, when he will come down from heaven with a loud command and the trumpet call of God. His followers, both those who are dead and those who are still alive, will be caught up to meet him in the air.

These passages and others throughout the Bible describe Jesus' future eschatological role as a conqueror and king, when he will return in power and glory to establish his kingdom on earth.
This passage describes the majestic nature of Jesus as a conquering king, with blazing eyes and many crowns. However, it also emphasizes his faithful and true character, and the fact that he will rule with justice.

There are several ways in which Jesus differs from other gods and mythical beings:

Historical existence: Unlike many mythical gods and beings, Jesus was a real historical figure. His existence is attested to by multiple historical sources, including non-Christian sources such as the Jewish historian Josephus and the Roman historian Tacitus.

Teachings of love and compassion: Jesus' teachings are characterized by love, compassion, and self-sacrifice. He taught his followers to love their enemies, to care for the poor and marginalized, and to put the needs of others before their own. This message of love and compassion is unique among religious figures and sets Jesus apart from other gods and mythical beings.

Self-sacrifice: Jesus' ultimate act of love was his self-sacrifice on the cross, where he willingly gave his life to atone for the sins of humanity. This act of self-sacrifice is unparalleled among other gods and mythical beings, who are often depicted as selfish and demanding sacrifices from their followers.

Resurrection: Jesus' resurrection from the dead is a unique aspect of his story that sets him apart from other gods and mythical beings. His resurrection was not a symbolic or spiritual event, but a physical and historical reality attested to by multiple eyewitness accounts.

Salvation through faith: Jesus' message of salvation through faith in him is also unique. Unlike other gods and mythical beings who demand obedience to laws and rituals, Jesus offers salvation through faith in him as the Son of God and the Savior of the world.
