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.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 1:14


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.

Discussion for Revelation 1

  • Susan
    Yes that is true. It's an amazing book about the love of God and how he will triumph over evil and save and redeem the faithful in the end. Interesting though is that most has already come to pass as it says these things are at hand and will happen quickly. Dire encouragement for Christians enduring horrific persecution.
  • Sihlobosenkosi
    A book that proceeds from the throne of God. He gives it to Jesus. Jesus is the central figure of this book. He holds the candle sticks on his hands and holds the keys of hades and death. Jesus is in charge of His church and those that die have assurance of Resurrection. This is an open book that should be understood because it reveals Jesus and His love
  • Tony
    You wouldn't want to be on the wrong side when the King ofKings and Lord of Lords returns Praise the Lord
  • Owusu Agyemang Emmanuel
    Revelation mostly take about and review the end time prophecy of Jesus Christ second coming and also understand readers and listeners about He who will cone and judge the death and the living
  • Walter Rivera Santos
    Sunday, if so determine to be the Lord's day, observing it to actively establish a relation with Him is imperative. Immersing you life onto the spiritual real, will uplift humans and cure their thoughts as they get sinked with The Creator Spirit.
  • Unohoo
    Acts 4.12 Neither is there salvation in any other, for there is none other name under heaven, given among men whereby we must be saved.It talks about seven Churches 1.4 Seven Spirits 1.4 and Seven Stars 1.16. The church is you the Spirit is God and the Star is Christ in you which should be shining at all times day or night. Lord Jesus come quickly...
