People's Bible Notes for Revelation 1:16


Re 1:16 In his right hand seven stars. See Re 1:20. And out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword. This two-edged sword is a symbol of the word by which Christ's conquests are won. See Eph 6:17 Heb 4:12, and compare Re 19:15. His countenance [was] as the sun shineth in his strength. The glory of his countenance is the same that was manifested at the Transfiguration (Mt 17:2).

    The Word Of God was meant for a Spiritual mind to understand. This makes sense, Spiritual sense, if the ones who penned the Word of God, Penned it under the divine inspiration and Spirit of God, those who understand it must be influenced by that same inspiration and Spirit?

    The concept of 'Rapture' in tissues would be the 'second coming of a surgeon' to save the good cells or tissues from a dead body to be transplanted into a living body.
  • Christian
    I think that the book of revelation show the things witch will happen in last time: the end of this world.
  • Jennifer
    Why did John not recognise JESUS? John was the disciple who was at JESUS's breast yet did not recognize him or could not tell his voice ? Why were the letters written to the 'angels'? of the church and not the people? Why are there different rewards and not standardized rewards ? Does blot out support the theory of saved and lost?
