People's Bible Notes for Revelation 19:12


Re 19:12 His eyes [were] as a flame of fire. See PNT "Re 1:14". On his head [were] many crowns. Diadems. All kingly authority is concentrated in his hands. He is King of kings. A name written, that no man knew,but he himself. Probably the new name of Re 2:17, a name which will be disclosed to those invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb (Re 3:12).
