This becomes clear that moment in which the beast emerges from the sea. The beast is described as "having ten horns and seven heads and on his horns were ten diadems. This contrasts with the hellish warrior in b on whose heads "were blasphemous names. Skehan argues that the beast has a number which conceals his name and that Christ has a name King of Kings and Lord of Lords which when converted to Aramaic and added up results in Thus in Rev ff we have the clearest picture of Jesus Christ as the eschatological Divine Warrior.
More can be said. In the OT, the theme of the Divine Warrior is closely connected with other themes. For example, when the Divine Warrior fights, nature languishes, but when victory is achieved, nature is restored with renewed vitality. In the last part of Revelation, this motif can be recognized in the disappearance of earth and sky during the judging activity of the Divine Warrior Rev , which is followed by a description of the new Jerusalem In Rev we get the description of the enthroned Christ which is followed by a unique temple building scene.
In Rev there is a description of the new Jerusalem which is striking by virtue of its lack of a temple. The temple is not needed because all of the new Jerusalem is a temple, since God and the Lamb dwell there ff.
As mentioned, Rev ff contains the most explicit use of the Divine Warrior motif, but there are others which can briefly be mentioned. The sixth seal Rev describes the great day of the wrath of the Lamb. The seventh trumpet brings us up to the point of the beginning of the great battle, but does not describe the battle. It ends with the familiar language of a Divine Warrior theophany v Then in Rev we have the picture of one like a son of man descending, seated on a white cloud with a sickle in his hand.
There is debate over whether this is an allusion to Christ or to a created angel. In either case the harvest and vintage images go back to Joel as metaphors for the ultimate war of the Divine Warrior against the nations. Last, the sixth and seventh bowl visions picture the ultimate Holy War. The sixth bowl vision describes the bowl poured out on the Euphrates. Next in the passage occurs a reference to the three frog-like spirits which come out of the mouth of the beast and the false prophets.
These are described as they who go out to the kings of the whole world to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty The seventh bowl explicitly describes the Divine Warrior theophany which is accompanied by lightning, thunder, earthquake, and so on.
And once again nature convulses and fights for the Divine Warrior. Thus the book of Revelation employs the Divine Warrior motif quite extensively to describe the warring activity and ultimate victory of the Lamb in the last days. That the Divine Warrior theme is so fully developed here should not be surprising. After all, Revelation gains much of its imagery from the OT, specifically the apocalyptic books. These apocalyptic texts employed the motif of the Divine Warrior in a new way.
The book of Revelation, itself apocalyptic and concerned with the consummation, employed the theme in close connection with OT apocalyptic.
In the book of Revelation, there is a lot of singing. I am not concerned to differentiate the two songs which follow these designations from others in the book, but I am interested in demonstrating that, in the light of the awareness of the Divine Warrior motif in the book of Revelation, new song has the particular meaning of victory shout, that is, a song of praise in response to, or in anticipation of, the victory of the Divine Warrior.
This can be seen of the following grounds: 1 the use of new song sir hadas in the OT; 2 the nature of the songs in the book of Revelation and 3 the relationship between music and the Divine Warrior motif throughout Scripture. In both there is a close connection with Holy War ideology and Divine Warrior imagery. A couple of examples include:. A similar connection between new song and Holy War can be clearly recognized in Ps ; ; , 3 and No song meant for another situation quite fits this.
In Rev ff the new song is a hymn of praise to the Lamb because of his worthiness to open the seals.
And, indeed, what do the seals symbolize ultimately, but the waging of Holy War? That relationship is similar to the relationship which bears between nature and the Divine Warrior. During the divine warfare, nature languishes, but after the victory, it is restored with greater vitality. Music too ceases during the warring of the Divine Warrior the two themes of nature and music are intermixed in Isa ff , but with victory, music is renewed Psalm In the historical books, women playing music greeted military leaders after a victory Exod ff; Judg ff.
The silhouetted figures gesture at the need for anonymity, while the Protector with arms raised signals the optimism of a righteous cause. PPN kamakama.

The above four topics describe the use of the Divine Warrior motif in describing the consummation; it is time now to examine the use of the motif in the rest of the NT. I suggest that the theme is used with two purposes: to describe the death and resurrection of Christ, and to explain the battle which the Christian wages against the "powers and principalities. John the Baptist and others apparently expected a Messiah who would come much like the Divine Warrior figure of the Consummation. In Luke ff John explains to the masses that one is coming after him with a winnowing fork in his hand.
As a matter of fact, while in prison, John sends two of his disciples to question Jesus. John seemingly has his doubts about Jesus as he sits in jail. Jesus responds to their question by healing and exorcising. On the prohibitive side, Jesus explicitly cuts off from the church Holy War activity similar to that of the Israelites. Shall I not drink the cup the father has given me? Thus on the basis of this and other passages as well, Jesus turns from the role of Divine Warrior directed toward the unbeliever.
His command is not to slay but to convert Matt ff. On the other side, Jesus, by drinking the cup, wages Holy War against the enemy, a war which he wins upon the cross.
This is why his death and resurrection are frequently likened to military victory. Col ff: "When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross.
And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. Notice the military language here. He "disarms" the powers and principalities and indeed "triumphs" over them. Notice the enthronement after the victory, fitting in with the ancient pattern found in the Psalms and ultimately Canaanite mythology. Furthermore, later in the book Paul quotes a well-known Divine Warrior psalm in ff. His ascension is here seen as a military victory. Jesus has won the victory on the cross, yet now everything is still not subject to him: "In putting everything under him, God left nothing that is not subject to him.
Yet at present we do not see everything subject to him" Heb Thus, indeed, Jesus won the victory on the cross, but the fulness of that victory will only come at the consummation, only at the time when he comes again on the white war horse, the Divine War chariot to purge the world of evil. Thus the argument connects here with what I have already mentioned concerning Jesus Christ the Divine Warrior in the book of Revelation. In summary, Jesus Christ is pictured in some verses as waging war with the powers and principalities.
His healing and exorcising may be seen as previews of the battle with the demonic hordes.
On the cross, Paul tells us that Christ won a victory over the satanic powers. When Christ opens the seals in the book of Revelation, a new song, a victory shout, is able to be sung concerning Christ before the actual battle because the outcome is certain. And why is it certain?

Rev "Because you were slain, and with your blood, you purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation. Since the enemy is not completely subdued in the present, in the period between resurrection and consummation, the Christian is called upon to wage war.
Once again, the warfare is not directed toward human adversaries but toward the evil powers which stand behind evil men.
