Wesley's Notes for Revelation 19:16

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.

    Why is everybody hung up on the old testament. When Cleary we are set free from the law in the new testament. If you shave or trim your hair or beard then you are sinning according to the same passage in Leviticus.

    Jesus himself is the word of God whatever he spake to the people a word comes from our Holy Father who have sent him. Jesus is the only mediator between man and God. Jesus is guiding us to the Living Water that everyone must meditate and must accept the word of God. This is the scripture that Jesus fullfilled to our Holy Father. Thanks to Jesus for his precious blood that shed for us, his resurrection, his ascencion and the Holy Spirit. Amen

    I need to know which voice spoke. God, Jesus or who. According to the text it coundn 't be God " 'worship our God but the person was around throne
  • To Kay: Yes. Jesus made real what we cannot and should not by the power of G d. For us, what we experience is an occurance symbolic to the given for the purpose of conveying the truth as transpired. A more direct message than can be derived from man 's testiment alone. Yes, Jesus gives us the voice of many waters as the spoken word. If one can rise above the spoken word of man, one can transcend and walk on it. In otherwords, what we are given at judgement is that no judgement may be made by man since sin is in man. Therefore, we cannot judge each other, we can, though choose to learn and grow from what is offered, much to be facetious and coddling and rendering of all manner of attempts to foil what G d has to offer in the way of gifts. Christ 's people can cross the bridge over water, symbolically, some must walk through the water, which is to some considered walking through "the fire " to prove dedication. - Hopes to clarify.
