People's Bible Notes for Revelation 19:12


Re 19:12 His eyes [were] as a flame of fire. See PNT "Re 1:14". On his head [were] many crowns. Diadems. All kingly authority is concentrated in his hands. He is King of kings. A name written, that no man knew,but he himself. Probably the new name of Re 2:17, a name which will be disclosed to those invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb (Re 3:12).

Discussion for Revelation 19:12

  • Garyns on Revelation 19:12
    I present what was learned in the Spirit, some years ago. That John is recounting a certain history, associated with the Lord, and being cryptic about that, in particular, though details are suggested in the reading of the revelation of our Lord shared with him, over the course of dictating the writing of the book we hold so dearly, mysterious as it is. Certain elements of this passage stand out for me.

    It is an angel of the Lord who is presenting, at least the material of the above passage, both contextually (verses 09-15) and in the text itself, under study. But all is prefaced by the call, first, in verse 09: "Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb." That is always an immanent invitation, because we do not know the time of that scheduled event. But its subject is particularly poignant in our day, in our time, for the Lamb of God of the First Century is the same one in the Twenty-First Century.

    Aside from the revelation of God in the preserved New Testament, how shall we know who he is? Especially, drawing from the information furnished us in the passage, but particularly in the verse under study (v. 12), and most important to us now, ". . . he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself." What does that mean, of the Lamb of God? And written? Is it so in the New Testament? Then we would know it. But it is not 'written' there.

    There is one place only where such a 'writing' would be found. His name there is not commented on by anyone in possession of knowledge gleaned from the reading of that book, but it is there, and it is derived from the question that is asked any and all of us: who is the man identified by another John, who baptized Jesus--by the Baptist himself who said, "Behold the Lamb of God who taketh away the sin of the world," and which is now found written in flesh and blood in and on a mysterious book or scroll, by which only they of faith can answer?

    Be wise, and truthful.
  • Mishael and The Lamb of God - in Reply on Revelation 19:12
    Jesus was the sacrificial Lamb of God. Without spots or impurity. He was perfect. He was to be humankind's sacrifice.

    Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.

    But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?

    And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to FULFILL all righteousness. Then he suffered him.

    When Jesus was walking up, John spoke the Prophesy that Jesus was the Lamb of God. This was a prophesy fulfilled. On the day Jesus was crucified over a 100 prophesies were Fulfilled.

    The things preceding; the day of the trial; the crucifixion; and after. It was all prophesied many years before. The odds of Him doing that probably exceed the number of stars in the sky.

    Get that list off Google. It gives you great appreciation for the office of Prophet.

    Only God could do that.
  • Wilson waweru on Revelation 19:12
    the book of revelation was written when Jesus was in Heaven having been given all the power and glory meaning He cannot be "he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. " being talked about in this verse.
