Wesley's Notes for Revelation 1:6


1:6 To him that loveth us, and, out of that free, abundant love, hath washed us from the guilt and power of our sins with his own blood, and hath made us kings - Partakers of his present, and heirs of his eternal, kingdom. And priests unto his God and Father - To whom we continually offer ourselves, an holy, living sacrifice. To him be the glory - For his love and redemption. And the might - Whereby he governs all things.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 1:6


Re 1:6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father. Here the Revised Version must be followed: "And he made us [to be] a kingdom, [to be] priests unto his God". His disciples are constituted a kingdom; a kingdom in which each one is a priest. No disciple needeth a priest to offer incense or sacrifice for him, for he can go directly to the Father through Jesus Christ. See PNT "1Pe 2:9". Christians are called priests, but are never called kings in a correct translation of the New Testament.

    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:.
