Wesley's Notes for Revelation 1:14


1:14 His head and his hair - That is, the hair of his head, not his whole head. Were white as white wool - Like the Ancient of Days, represented in Daniel's vision, #Dan 7:9|. Wool is commonly supposed to be an emblem of eternity. As snow - Betokening his spotless purity. And his eyes as a flame of fire - Piercing through all things; a token of his omniscience.

Re 1:14 His head and [his] hairs [were] white. White is the color of purity and of triumph. The idea here is not age but heavenly glory. His eyes [were] as a flame of fire. Bright, piercing, all seeing, flashing light, and also a consuming fire of the wicked.

    Matthew 25:32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: Matthew 25:33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Matthew 25:34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: Matthew 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

    Jesus is coming like a thief . We will see him in the mid air during RAPTURE TIME. HE IS GOING TO TAKE BACK HIS CHURCH AS A BRIDE TO HEAVEN. BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO WILL BE FOUND IN THE CHURCH PRAISING GOD AND THANKING HIM AND SERVING GOD WILL BE SAVED. JESUS IS FAITHFUL TO HIS WORDS THAT HE WILL PREPARE A PLACE FOR US IN MANSION.
