  • The white horse and its rider, Jesus (19:11)

  • The sword in his mouth (19:21)
  • The battle between the beast’s armies and the rider’s armies and the great feast (19:17–21)
  • The beast and the prophet who deceive those who receive the beast’s mark, and who are thrown into the lake of fire (19:20; 20:10)
  • Options for understanding the millennial reign and the binding of Satan, and Tom’s view of “new creation millennialism” (19:4–6)
  • Satan and the final battle (19:7–10)
  • The judgment and the great white throne (19:11–15)
