Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Revelation 3:15


3:15 I know thy works - Thy disposition and behaviour, though thou knowest it not thyself. That thou art neither cold - An utter stranger to the things of God, having no care or thought about them. Nor hot - As boiling water: so ought we to be penetrated and heated by the fire of love. O that thou wert - This wish of our Lord plainly implies that he does not work on us irresistibly, as the fire does on the water which it heats. Cold or hot - Even if thou wert cold, without any thought or profession of religion, there would be more hope of thy recovery.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 3:15


Re 3:15 I know thy works. The same statement has been made of all the churches, but in all the others there has been something to praise. Thou art neither cold nor hot. Neither acting hostile to Christ, nor zealous for Him. I would thou wert cold or hot. Christ would rather that men should be opposers than formal, apathetic professors.

    stay in the word we are living in the laodecian church age
    pray without cessing cling to that which is good abhor that
    which is evil, do not fall for cults and prosperity pimps
    they will lead you away from the biblical gospel of our
    lord jesus christ keep short accounts with GOD
    AND GO OUT AND PREACH THE GOSPEL HAND OUT
    GOSPEL TRACTS TIME IS RUNNING OUT.

    Hello Venus, the 7 churches where located north of Israel in Asia in bible times and these church messages that Jesus told John still applies to us born again believers today. Sacrifices are when we deny our will and give our time and efforts to further the kingdom of God. Pictures of Jesus and crucifixes are not to be in anyway worshiped or pray to, because this is not in the Word of God.
  • JP
    The lukewarm say Santa Claus is ok, Jesus is ok, Easter bunny is ok, going to church when its convenient is ok, the bible is ok, other religions are ok. As long as I got lots of money all my stuff I want everything is ok.
  • Venus
