Bible Commentary for Revelation 1:14

Wesley's Notes for Revelation 1:14


1:14 His head and his hair - That is, the hair of his head, not his whole head. Were white as white wool - Like the Ancient of Days, represented in Daniel's vision, #Dan 7:9|. Wool is commonly supposed to be an emblem of eternity. As snow - Betokening his spotless purity. And his eyes as a flame of fire - Piercing through all things; a token of his omniscience.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 1:14


Re 1:14 His head and [his] hairs [were] white. White is the color of purity and of triumph. The idea here is not age but heavenly glory. His eyes [were] as a flame of fire. Bright, piercing, all seeing, flashing light, and also a consuming fire of the wicked.

    I disagree with the color agenda. But I also disagree with the reference of scripture. If you will read that part of Revelation it is speaking of Jesus as a judge. The White Hair, The Bronze Feet. The Bible says that Jesus was from Nazareth. A place in Israel that was commonly Hot and Dry. Yes all of these men had a tanned skin. But Cris, the Bible does say that Jesus came into the world not to condemn it, but that it might be saved. He did not only come for the Israelites he grafted all into the vine. So that all men(women) might be saved.

    If you were born again, you have the Holy Spirit ( some call it the holy ghost, same thing) How can you know? By faith. Faith is the same a trust. If you can't trust God, who can you trust. The Holy Spirit is like the little cartoons you may have seen when you was a kid. Where there's a little angel whispering in one ear and a devil whispering in your other ear. Listen and that little angel (which really is the holy spirit will guide you.)

    Easu is the Europeans...red, Edomites......ok
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Revelation 1:14
    Melvin, so you claim that the Esau Edomites are of Europe? It was Europeans who built the churches, printed the Bibles and sent missionaries all over the world to the glory of Jesus spreading the gospel?

    What has Africa done? Did Africa ever know the gospel until white missionaries told them? Can you explain please

    Paul the apostle to the Gentiles went to Greece, not Africa to my knowledge.

    WAS RECOMMENDED TO CHOSE ONE WORD THAT WILL SET A GOAL FOR ME IN 2014. MY WORD IS "JESUS"
  • A Believer on Revelation 1:14
    The resurrected Jesus could appear in any countenance he wants to be like in order to bring about the message to the person he is manifesting. Here the message is clear: to comfort John's heart. Only the king, the wisdom bearer, with vehement passion could direct the old apostle's step what should be done next under the persecution tempest.
  • Mstpaul on Revelation 1:14
    lets keep an open mind an not be too freeked out no matter what GOD looks like.
  • Courtney on Revelation 1:14
    I think it's sad how everyone has the immage of God in their head as a man with long hair, little do most people know, a gay man drew that picture and homosexuality is total contrary to the word of God. People try to argue with me and they joke about God and say he must be albino but that's terrible because I'm sure that hurts him and they should be the one who shoved the crown on him or the one roman solider who beat him until he was un-noticable. I know I have tons of spelling errors but that's what i think!

    I LOVE JESUS!!!!!!!:)
