Wesley's Notes for Revelation 15:6


15:6 And the seven angels came out of the temple - As having received their instructions from the oracle of God himself. St. John saw them in heaven, verse 1, #Rev 15:1| before they went into the temple. They appeared in habits like those the high priest wore when he went into the most holy place to consult the oracle. In this was the visible testimony of God's presence. Clothed in pure white linen - Linen is the habit of service and attendance. Pure - unspotted, unsullied. White - Or bright and shining, which implies much more than bare innocence. And having their breasts girt with golden girdles - In token of their high dignity and glorious rest.

    ALL roads lead to Rome. So does Sunday Sabbath, immortality of soul (only God is immortal, our eternal life comes only from Jesus- the way, truth
  • Word
    Traditions of men teach Satan comes antichrist to kill and destroy. You also have preachers add on to that an easy salvation we rapture before all the destruction and then you have those who blame all of it on a religion because it's not their way of believing. Gods salvation is Satan comes to deceive the whole world as a false prophet antichrist meaning instead of Christ looks like Jesus.WAIT!
  • Sabbath keeper and Wife
    Satan has EVERYBODY but a small remnant who actually know what truth is. When you start declaring unfactual things that have ZERO biblical basis, not only do you put yourself in danger but have blood on your hands of others you may lead astray. It's a VERY serious thing to know exactly what you are stating as truth. Rome started a passle of lies and satan decieved the WHOLE WORLD- THATS BIBLICAL
  • Peter Mensah
    In my opinion l regard revelation book to be a warning sign for all believers against great tragedy ahead.And also the 2nd coming of Christ
  • Word
    Deut. 31 vs 28 tells of the song of Moses and its in Deut. 32 and has a lot of information about what will happen. Satan has a small people right now on earth a stage of the locust and the next stage will be Satans priest with iron breastplates and soft spoken words telling the people of the world come to Jesus but it's a false messiah with power no man has seen before and the world deceived.
  • Sabbath keeper and Wife
    Can you imagine the awesome majesty of a sight like that? Angels, clothed in righteousness coming out of where the Arc and the commandments under the throne of God are kept. They are about to "be about their Father's business" in a bad sort of way. Testimony has to do with Spirit of Prophecy (Rev. 19:10) so plagues are for those decieved by beast system, not keeping God's commands (Rev12:17)
