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.

    ray: Blessed and Holy is he that part in the First Resurrection: Revelation20:6 The rest of the dead lived not again until a 1000 Yrs were Finished. V:5. FOOD FOR THOUGHT. After The Rapture there is no hope. Only by The Blood of The Lord is there Salvation/Called: John 6:44/ Ask Forgiveness. You will be Baptized with The Holy Ghost:Matthew3:11 / Changed 2 Corinthians5:17 :You will Know!

    Ray321 could you direct me in scriptures that speak of the rapture. I can only fine Ezekiel 13 where it speaks of preachers who will make up divine thoughts out of their own minds teaching Gods children a salvation of fly away that God hates. Then I went to 1 Thessalonians 4 and the subject starts at vs13 where are the dead and it says they are with Christ and will return with Him at the 7th trump
  • Ray321
    All scripture is good to learn from. Revelation is a that we will need if we miss the Rapture. Romans through Philemon is for today. We are saved thru grace in Jesus. Just food for thought. ...

    Two witnesses will come and they have power. When the elect are being delivered up to death which is Satan acting as God returned the elect will have the Holy Spirit speaking through them so you want to listen to what they say.

    10 nation haven't made an agreement where one pulls out causing a deadly wound that brings Satan who is kicked out of heaven to earth that joins the 10 back together. Satan as antichrist instead of Christ has not stood in Jerusalem claiming to be God yet and that won't happen until he, Satan comes in peace shows off his supernatural powers and the world will chase after him worshipping him. WAIT.
  • Abe
    Gene, Revelation is very easily understood book. Many misinterpret as future happenings when truly it is the revelation of Jesus Christ and tells of our Christian warfare between God and Satan. It is not future but what we go through now.
