The first thing I want to say is the book of  Revelation is a vision of what John saw.  To make everything literal in these verses to me would be a mistake.  That would include millions of white horses for the riders and the sword hanging out of His mouth and the rod of iron to rule the nations. I do want to say something about what the people of the armies are wearing.  Fine linen white and clean.  That is because they were washed in the blood of the Lamb symbolic of our righteousness.  Next I will mention His names.  There is no doubt as to who this is by His names.  I will list them with no special comments.  The first is Faithfull and True, the Word of God, and a name no one knew, King of kings and Lord of lords.  All these mean our Lord Jesus Christ.
Then there is the treading of the winepress with blood on His garments.  Lastly the Beast and the false Prophet of chapter 13 conquered and put away where they belonged.  This is the beginning of Christ's thousand year reign.
