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.

Not saints, not spirit, not Mary....GOD. No priest can forgive you. Only God, the Father with his only begotten (not created) Son as our intercessor.

    Amen and Amen. To be able to witness Gods magnificence! No one can imagine !

    The proper translation is 4 living things. Beasts are world powers. They more than likely are Seraphim. They and the elders worship before the throne day and night proclaiming God's Glory - Hallelujah ! I'll bet it's an awesome sight. I'll be happy just to sweep the floor! Just please let me in.
