Kicking Butt?

Many people envision Jesus as a metro-sexual looking guy with product in his hair that looks so weak that you think you could beat him up. I do not see my Lord and savior in this image but in the following:

11 Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. 12 His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself. 13 He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. 14 And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. 15 From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. 16 On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords. Revelation 19:11-16

Yes, there he is! On a white horse, robe dipped in blood, leading an army, and a tattoo written on his thigh. That is the God I worship!

A masculine picture of Jesus is not politically correct or culturally accepted. It frustrates me when men (which Jesus is one) are portrayed needing to be in touch with their feminine side. My feminine side is my wife, she let’s me know when I am exhibiting too much testosterone. Besides women seem to respect men who are not like them but like men.

So I hate to tell you this but Jesus is not anything like he is portrayed by many, he is kicking butt and taking names (which I did not comment on).

How do you envision Jesus?
