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.

    Even thought John was put in prison for his preaching, he viewed this as an opportunity to show his love for Jehovah God.

    I letting you know not to be deceive get wisdom most of all understanding.
  • Redeemed
    No one can call Jesus the Lord (the one Lord of Deut 6:4) but by the Holy Ghost that's why the book starts out I John was in the spirit on the Lords day when he was given the revealing of Jesus Christ the one Lord that sat on the throne. Paul who was a Jew was given this revelation after thinking he knew God and was doing him service but when he heard the voice he said who are you Lord? I am Jesus
  • Redeemed
    All this points to the one Lord, who sat upon the throne who lived and died and behold is alive forevermore the Alpha and Omega the one that's feet were as fine brass as if burned in a furnace which is the Son of God that was the fourth man walking in the fiery furnace. Great is the mystery of the God that never changes and is the same yesterday today and forever, My Lord and my God Jesus Christ.

Satan comes to deceive the whole world in a deception of being Christ return so wait for the true Christ at the 7th trump. If your in the flesh and they say Christ is here you know it's not true an the true Christ does not come in peace but war. Wait for Christ
