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.

    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.
