[thronos] KJV-Interlinear



5 And she gave birth to a son, a male child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron; and her child was caught up to God and to His throne. NASB



John continues with his historical narrative from the birth of Christ, His ascension, and His destiny to rule.


The nation of Israel, gave birth to the humanity of Jesus.


Jesus is the descendant of David, Rom 1:3; 9:5. Jesus was the fulfillment of prophecy, Gen 3:15; Isa 7:14; 9:6; Mic 5:2. Jesus was of Jewish lineage in that He was a son of Abraham, Matt 1:1, a member of the tribe of Judah, Gen 49:10; Mic 5:2; Rev 5:5, and a descendant of David, Matt 1:1; 2 Sam 7:12-16.


His destiny is to rule the nations, and to rule by means of a rod of iron, Rev. 10; 2:26-27; 11:15; 19:15, Ps 2:7-9.


In our verse, the word for rule, means to destroy. Jesus Christ will return from heaven, from where He is currently, to destroy the nations, totally, and then He will rule during the Millennium, all of those He rescued from all nations, including those saved Jewish people who believed in Him during the latter half of the Tribulation.


The rod of iron means the resoluteness of Christ to rule by truth and fairness, with no compromises in bias, prejudice, or sin of any kind.


Between the birth of Christ and the eventual coronation as King, He arose and ascended into heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father. That is where Jesus Christ is right now.


Jesus Christ was exalted by the Father by permitting Him to sit at the right hand of the Father.


The right hand or right side is the place of authority. All subordinates sit to the left, thus the Father is seated to the left of Christ, who is the heir of all power, sovereignty and authority.


This exaltation indicates the Fathers acceptance of the work of the Son, in the Fathers divine plan, Heb. 1:3.
