People's Bible Notes for Revelation 22:17


Re 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. Twice the Lord has said, "I come quickly" (Re 22:7,12). John repeats that the Lord saith, "Surely I come quickly", in Re 22:20. The subject of these verses is the coming of the Lord. The Bridegroom has promised to come, and the Bride responds to the promise of the Bridegroom by inviting him to come. The church, filled with the Spirit, stands with hands extended, "loving his appearance" (2Ti 4:8), inviting the coming, and eager for the coming of the Lord. And let him that heareth say, Come. Let all who have heard the gracious promise join in the invitation and say, "Come". And let him that is athirst come. Let all thirsty for the water of life come and partake of it freely. Whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. To will to come is the essential thing in order to coming to Christ.

    Perry read Ezekiel 13 where preachers will think up things they call Devine thoughts from God but it's not so. That preachers sew together covers to hide His out reaching arms of salvation by teaching a lie of fly away doctrine. There is no rapture
  • Perry
    you need to study 1st. 2nd. peter and proverbs 9:10 and 14:12 and read 1st.thessalonians. I pray this will be a help to you. and I believe we are in the last days. and what we call the rapture is soon to happen. so be praying watching.

    Traditions of men religious pulpits will tell you there is Christian persecution coming but that's all hype to fill their churches with scared souls and the Bible and Gods salvation is completely different from what they dream up. Satan takes over in peace a false messiah to deceive the world to gain worshippers and to be their supernatural leader.The elect know Satan is a fake
