Wesley's Notes for Revelation 3:12


3:12 I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God - I will fix him as beautiful, as useful, and as immovable as a pillar in the church of God. And he shall go out no more - But shall be holy and happy for ever. And I will write upon him the name of my God - So that the nature and image of God shall appear visibly upon him. And the name of the city of my God - Giving him a title to dwell in the New Jerusalem. And my new name - A share in that joy which I entered into, after overcoming all my enemies.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 3:12


Re 3:12 A pillar. A term implying strength, permanence and honor. In the temple of my God. Not in any material temple, but in the church, either on earth or in heaven. The latter is here meant. The New Jerusalem has no temple in it because it is all temple. He shall go no more out. Always dwell there. I will write upon him the name of my God. When one enters the church, the spiritual temple below, three names are recorded in his baptismal formula. When he enters the kingdom above, three names are again written upon him; the name of God, of the heavenly city, and Christ's heavenly name.

Discussion for Revelation 3

  • Kimberly Reed
    I love it.it help me to understand what I was struggling with my life. Lord is everlasting love and understanding. Through those scriptures he opened my eyes let me understand.
  • AJ
    The letters were written by John, as given by Our Lord Jesus, to Churches that existed then but I also believe that the Churches are Church ages that we will all go through. The Seven Church styles as it were. This is from Pentecost Acts 2 to the "Rapture" foretold in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18.
  • Norm
    Do not be deceived and lean not on thine own understanding as God teaches both are unrighteous: Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour is the spirit of prophecy and knows His flock: The church in Philadelphia is here and will be shielded from the wrath of Great tribulation of hell that cometh upon all the nations of the whole earth. The Spirit of Christ Jesus is in the flesh today and will remove His church which is scattered about. JESUS SAVES. 2 John 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
  • Bojan
    can anyone tell me what happen to the church from revelation 3:10?if anyone thinks that this is to the rapture than it passed 2000 years ago because this is promise to 1 church of 7 almost 2000 years ago.anyone knows what happens to each of them?
  • The Truth
    I feel like the book of Revelation reveals a lot of info that we can input in our life because of the things that are happening today little but little word per word i see it is full filling this book has a lot to do with our time.
  • Word
    God watches the churches to this day and the messengers report to Him. There are two churches that God loved 2 vs 9 and 3 vs 9 because they knew the key of David.
