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

  • 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!
