Wesley's Notes for Revelation 22:14


22:14 Happy are they that do his commandments - His, who saith, I come - He speaks of himself. That they may have right - Through his gracious covenant. To the tree of life - To all the blessings signified by it. When Adam broke his commandment, he was driven from the tree of life. They who keep his commandments shall eat thereof.

Re 22:14 Blessed [are] they that do his commandments. "Blessed are they that wash their robes" (Revised Version). Those who have their robes washed are those whose sins are forgiven, and who obey Christ. These have the right to enter the city, for no sinner can enter there.

    Look up wrath in the Bible. Wrath of God is to come upon the children of disobedience.

    1 thess 1:10. Christians are to be saved from the wrath to come. Such as lot in Sodom and Gomorrah. And Noah and family in the flood. We are not living under the condemnation of sin. We are free in Christ!
  • S.Burris
    To God'sGirl, I don't think we will know our realtives as our sisters and brothers it won't be like that. I hear a lot of people say this but we want know them as your mother or fasther.

    There will be a "Rapture" and the only ones taken, will be those who have "made themselves ready, (i.e..by having all of their sins washed away through/by the blood of the Lamb, JESUS; have Jesus in their hearts, walking pure, clean and holy, living free from "ALL" sin AND is baptised in the "Holy Ghost" with Him living on the inside of a person. Also, all babies and small children, too.
  • Philip
    Sorry @Word, but Christians will be persecuted in the Tribulation, it's not just hype, it's prophecy. We all need to get off our John Darby 'Rapture' high horse and realize that we have been warned of forthcoming persecution, including possible death at the hands of Satan't minions. Just because we believe in Jesus Christ does not exempt us from Satan's wrath. Not enough room to finish my thoughts
