Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Revelation 1:14


1:14 His head and his hair - That is, the hair of his head, not his whole head. Were white as white wool - Like the Ancient of Days, represented in Daniel's vision, #Dan 7:9|. Wool is commonly supposed to be an emblem of eternity. As snow - Betokening his spotless purity. And his eyes as a flame of fire - Piercing through all things; a token of his omniscience.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 1:14


Re 1:14 His head and [his] hairs [were] white. White is the color of purity and of triumph. The idea here is not age but heavenly glory. His eyes [were] as a flame of fire. Bright, piercing, all seeing, flashing light, and also a consuming fire of the wicked.

    I Think that the book of REVELATION is tell all of us to wait on the LORD Jesus Christ, and to do good. Jesus Christ is telling all the Churches about things that they are doing. but I would like to say that I just started reading REVELATIONS, so I can not comment to much about it until I read and study the Holy Bible more. I enjoy reading the Bible. it has change my life. Thank you GOD:.
