Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Revelation 21:6


21:6 And he - That sat upon the throne. Said to me, It is done - All that the prophets had spoken; all that was spoken, #Rev 4:1|. We read this expression twice in this prophecy: first, #Rev 16:17|, at the fulfilling of the wrath of God; and here, at the making all things new. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end - The latter explains the former: the Everlasting. I will give to him that thirsteth - The Lamb saith the same, #Rev 22:17|.

    This is such a beautiful chapter...ever since I have read the Bible I keep loving this chapter because this is always the way things should have been,very hopeful.

    Chapter 21:21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.
  • Florian M
    The chapter presents the status after "the end": 1. A new haven and a new earth v.1
    2. The Bride "the New Jerusalem", coming down from heaven where She was raptured.
    The Bride is One who has the teachings of apostles and profets, represented by 12 apostles and 12 tribes of Israel.
  • Randy fortner
    I think if a lot of people would read chapter 21 of revelations and take it at what it says ! then if the people would read in Gods own word that no one will go up into heaven but that heaven will come down ! then people would know where their life is going.
  • Priscilla
    My favorite chapter in the Bible
  • Rev. LeeCoy
    This chapter in Revelation touches an important aspect of our Christian journey: Enduring to the end Longsuffering and ultimately Victory. For verse 7 states clearly: He that overcometh shall inherit all things and I will be his God, and he shall be My son.
