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.

    He that heareth, let him hear; and he that forbeareth, let him forbear:

    Norm nothing U said is scripture except Acts 2. The rest religious traditions of men to freak people out to fill a church, you a preacher.Nothing will happen in America and business as always will go on but then a Christ which is instead of Christ comes who sets up a 1 world system and he will have powers that none has ever seen before and they will worship him and spiritual death will run wild.
  • Dana Wells
    Where in Revelation does it mention war among races ie clans? As we are seeing that now in epic proportion the past 8 years. Thank you
  • Chrissy
    Even when everything is in total chaos, Jesus says, ''I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.'' No matter what happens, He will NEVER leave those who are His. Just be sure He knows you. Accept Him as Lord and Saviour through faith today. Confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord. When you are truly His, He will never leave you, not even for a second. :)
