People's Bible Notes for Revelation 1:16


Re 1:16 In his right hand seven stars. See Re 1:20. And out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword. This two-edged sword is a symbol of the word by which Christ's conquests are won. See Eph 6:17 Heb 4:12, and compare Re 19:15. His countenance [was] as the sun shineth in his strength. The glory of his countenance is the same that was manifested at the Transfiguration (Mt 17:2).

Discussion for Revelation 1

  • Word
    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.

    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.

    Brenda: without Him I could do nothing. I was headed for hell! He tugged on my heart and told me I need Him. At least five times He called before I ask forgiveness. That night the best sleep ever, I woke up to a new world. Heavyweight,going, I didn't know I had. He gave me a New Heart and a New Mind and a love for His Word! 2Corinthians 5:17. That's who I am,saved by The Blood of The Lamb!
