Names of Jesus

We are studying the book of Revelation right now in my house church. While reading through this book, I noted how many different names/descriptions attributed to Jesus in this book. Here are a few that I noted:

* Him who is, and who was, and who is to come
* Faithful Witness
* Firstborn from the dead
* Ruler of kings of the earth
* Him who loves us
* Him who has freed us from our sins by His blood
* Has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve His God and Father
* Alpha & Omega
* the Almighty
* "like a son of man"
* the First and the Last
* the Living One
* was dead, and behold I am alive for ever & ever
* holds the keys of death and Hades
* Him who holds the seven stars in His right hand and walks among the seven golden lampstands
* Him who has the sharp, double-edged sword
* Son of God, whose eyes are like blazing fire and whose feet are like burnished bronze
* He who searches hearts and minds
* Him who holds the seven spirits of God and seven stars
* Him who is holy and true
* Him who holds the key of David
* the Amen
* the faithful and true witness
* the ruler of God's creation
* Lion of the tribe of Judah
* the Root of David
* Lamb
* Sovereign Lord, holy and true

Wow - we serve such a might and awesome Lord! Don't know about you but reading these things brings me comfort and peace, knowing this is the Lord I'm trying to follow.
