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.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 22:14


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.

Discussion for Revelation 22

  • Obbie Beal
    WOW! two times in chap 22 it says " I come quickly"; Again WOW...! Thank GOD for Jesus.
    I do not understand all of the Bible so until God give me more or better understanding... everyday I pray, read, praise, plus enjoy the many daily blessings.... I am excited because our Savior the King Of Kings shall return.

    It is particularly instructive to read Jesus' message to the churches -- first 3 chapters of Revelation, because these scriptures inform us of what we (as believers in Jesus the Christ) should be doing, and where we are missing the point. Revelation 17 and 18 is also an easy read because these reflect the daily news, as the world stage is unfolding now! Yes Daniel sets the stage for understanding!
  • Sabbath keeper and Wife
    Messiah wants us to understand. Apocalypse and Revelation means to "unveil" unlike popular teaching, which modern misconception and falsehood are what the whole book is about and it started the minute the original Apostles left the scene. It's about deception cloaked in a "Christian" costume and is/will be the most popular theory and practice and belief system going. If ye truly seek,ye shall find
  • Shirley m tucker
    I love the whole bible, because I believe in god and have faith in him. revelation chapter 22 I read it more because I can understand it. the whole chapter of revelation.

    I hv undrstnd wht it says.
  • Sabbath keeper and Wife
    Almost every verse in Rev. can be found elsewhere in the Bible. I think it's because God wants us to use it all. Daniel is the key to unlock Rev. It cannot be understood without it. MOST of the keys to Daniel are in Daniel itself. Dan 7 and Rev 13are identical with Rev giving a little more detail at the end of it (our time). Both are chronological.. Rev 12:17.
