Wesley's Notes for Revelation 19:11


19:11 And I saw the heaven opened - This is a new and peculiar opening of it, in order to show the magnificent expedition of Christ and his attendants, against his great adversary. And behold a white horse - Many little regarded Christ, when he came meek, riding upon an ass; but what will they say, when he goes forth upon his white horse, with the sword of his mouth? White - Such as generals use in solemn triumph. And he that sitteth on him, called Faithful - In performing all his promises. And True - In executing all his threatenings. And in righteousness - With the utmost justice. He judgeth and maketh war - Often the sentence and execution go together.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 19:11


Re 19:11 And I saw the heaven opened. This implies the opening of a new vision. See Re 4:1 11:19. Where a former vision is continued the formula is "After these things". We now have a series of pictures symbolizing the closing events that inaugurate the Millennium. The first of these is the one before symbolized by the angel that flies through heaven with the everlasting gospel, but now presented in a grand vision of the triumphant march of the Word of God. Behold a white horse. Always the symbol of conquest and triumph. See PNT "Re 6:2". And he that sat upon him [was] called Faithful and True. It is the Lord, who comes as the Word of God. His conquests are effected by the word, but the march is really the march of Christ.

Discussion for Revelation 19

  • A disciple
    "I am thy fellow-servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the spirit of prophecy is the testimony of Jesus." Isaiah 8:20 says, "To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them." If a man speaks against the Truth, and if he deny that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh, he is of antichrist.

    Love the site KJBO. Another great resource for me has been the teaching of the book of Revelation series by Pastor. In his message 'The Man on the White Horse' he gives many insights concerning Jesus return without retreat and also concerning the marriage supper of the lamb. It isn't what I have always been taught, but I am very glad for the truth I have learned.

    Good Steve- Look now at Rev 12:17- Here are they who KEEP the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus- explained in 19:10- which is the spirit of prophecy. This means that those who keep His commandments will be explained prophecy by His Spirit. IF we love Him keep His commandments AND He will pray the FATHER and He will send.... it's about obedience and resisting SIN which is death

    REVELATION 19:10 AND I FELL AT HIS FEET TO WORSHIP TO WORSHIP HIM AND HE SAID UNTO ME SEE THOU DO IT NOT I AM THY FELLOWSERVANT AND OF THY BRETHREN THAT HAVE THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS WORSHIP GOD FOR THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS IS THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY 1 JOHN 2:29 IF YOU KNOW THAT HE IS RIGHTEOUS YOU KNOW THAT EVERYONE THAT DOETH RIGHTEOUSNESS --- IS BORN OF HIM ---

    Christ returns as a warrior at the 7th trump. Scripture also says with fire and hail stones up to 180 lbs will be falling and Satans head with be crushed. It's some thing to think about when the peacefully sweet talking false messiah who can perform supernatural tricks gets here and the world loves him. wait for the true Christ Don't be taken from the field or from the house-by lies.

    7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. 8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. 9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb.


    WOW ! WOW ! WOW ! Amen!
