Wesley's Notes for Revelation 19:16

19:16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh - That is, on the part of his vesture which is upon his thigh. A name written - It was usual of old, for great personages in the eastern countries, to have magnificent titles affixed to their garments.

People's Bible Notes for Revelation 19:16

Re 19:16 He hath on [his] vesture and on his thigh. This probably signifies that the name was written on his vesture, even on his thigh. The Greek may be so translated. King of Kings. Of the various titles given to Christ in this passage this is the highest and marks him as supreme. There are four titles given in the passage: (1) Faithful and True (Re 19:11). (2) A name "that no man knew, but he himself" (Re 19:12). (3) The Word of God (Re 19:13). (4) King of kings, and Lord of lords (Re 19:16). The sublime imagery of this passage portrays the spiritual march and conquest of Christ. A purified church, following Christ, holy and true, shall carry the word in triumphant power to the nations. The armies of the saints, all united under Christ, led by him, strengthened by him, hence invincible, are marching to the great final conflict with the hosts of evil.

    Hi Amanda. Many commentators have compared the four beasts found in this book to the seraphim written of in Isaiah 6. You might like to have a read of that. There's a commentary by Matthew Henry of that chapter found on this site that might also prove useful. Hope that helps.

    Can someone please give me their opinion of what the four beasts in Revelation 19:4 is reference to? Thank you.

    Jude 1:10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. 12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;

    Hebrews 12:15 Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled; James 3:11 Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? 15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. 16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

    Jude1:4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. 6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
  • Word
    All of us were born of water and when we join CHRIST we are born of the Holy Spirit. Just so we all know that born again in John 3 is 509 born from above and we are all born from above and come from our mothers womb and now there is a choice that we have to make and that is to love our Father God or you can go the way of the wicked but not for long.
