Wesley's Notes for Revelation 5:10


5:10 And hast made them - The redeemed. So they speak of themselves also in the third person, out of deep self - abasement. They shall reign over the earth - The new earth: herewith agree the golden crowns of the elders. The reign of the saints in general follows, under the trumpet of the seventh angel; particularly after the first resurrection, as also in eternity, #Rev 11:18|;15:7;20:4;22:5;Dan 7:27;Psa 49:14.

    Jesus is portrayed as a Lion and as a Lamb. What a significant contrast! He is a Lion who has fought the Devil for us and has won the victory for us. He is a Lamb who has given Himself like a pure lamb without spot or wrinkle to satisfy the justice of God. As a Lion, no one in the spiritual forest can defeat Him. He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords! John the Baptist said, "Behold the Lamb"...

    I see beast and creatures in heaven and in Genesis when creation took place I see what beast are and creatures are and they are not man. So in revelation these beasts and creatures in heaven are not man either. But thousands x thousands and thousands and thousands are angles and elders. wow! Can you imagine Apostle John and what he must of thought when this vision was over? wow
  • BSP
    Verse 5~Jesus is here referred to as a lion because of his lion-like courage and strength that he has.
