Wesley's Notes for Revelation 1:6


1:6 To him that loveth us, and, out of that free, abundant love, hath washed us from the guilt and power of our sins with his own blood, and hath made us kings - Partakers of his present, and heirs of his eternal, kingdom. And priests unto his God and Father - To whom we continually offer ourselves, an holy, living sacrifice. To him be the glory - For his love and redemption. And the might - Whereby he governs all things.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 1:6


Re 1:6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father. Here the Revised Version must be followed: "And he made us [to be] a kingdom, [to be] priests unto his God". His disciples are constituted a kingdom; a kingdom in which each one is a priest. No disciple needeth a priest to offer incense or sacrifice for him, for he can go directly to the Father through Jesus Christ. See PNT "1Pe 2:9". Christians are called priests, but are never called kings in a correct translation of the New Testament.

Discussion for Revelation 1

  • BSP
    Even thought John was put in prison for his preaching, he viewed this as an opportunity to show his love for Jehovah God.
  • Terri
    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.
  • Word
    The test is simple if you love the Lord with all your heart. Oh, He can know! Now Satan comes at the 6th seal, 6th trump and the 6th vial. 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
  • Word
    First resurrection is after the 1st tribulation when we have past the test and all of God's children will go through the test then we will all be changed in spiritual bodies those that remain on earth to meet the Lord an our relatives that come at the 7th trump, if you have waited for the True Christ you have nothing to fear of the wrath of God that happens at the 7th trump when vials are poured.
