People's Bible Notes for Revelation 1:13


Re 1:13 And in the midst. It is a beautiful thought that he who said "I will be with you always" is represented as moving in the midst of the church (Mt 28:20). The Son of man. A term used in Da 7:13 and applied by the Savior to Himself, but never applied to him by the New Testament writers except here, Re 14:14, and Ac 7:56. A garment down to the foot. The long robe of a high priest girt about with the golden girdle of a king.

    Leslie: I have read this book 2 times and I have loved it so much. I agree that it is unfolding right before our eyes! I can't wait till we can go home! Life is short.

    The entire book of Revelation is opening up very quickly during this very time. It is crucial that we become greater in our faith than ever before. Each and everyday, whether we live during the time that Jesus returns, or leave this life before that time. The day will come that we will all answer to God for all that we've done or didn't do in this earth to serve Him.
