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.

    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.
