Wesley's Notes for Acts 7:55


7:55 But he looking steadfastly up to heaven, saw the glory of God - Doubtless he saw such a glorious representation, God miraculously operating on his imagination, as on Ezekiel's, when he sat in his house at Babylon, and saw Jerusalem, and seemed to himself transported thither, #Eze 8:1 |- 4. And probably other martyrs, when called to suffer the last extremity, have had extraordinary assistance of some similar kind.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 7:55


Ac 7:55 Looked up stedfastly into heaven. The Lord who had promised his presence was with him. His faith was so strengthened that, by faith, he saw the Savior in Heaven, through the opened heavens. The scene was revealed to his soul, instead of his eyes.
