Wesley's Notes for Revelation 19:15


19:15 And he shall rule them - Who are not slain by his sword. With a rod of iron - That is, if they will not submit to his golden sceptre. And he treadeth the wine press of the wrath of God - That is, he executes his judgments on the ungodly. This ruler of the nations was born (or appeared as such) immediately after the seventh angel began to sound. He now appears, not as a child, but as a victorious warrior. The nations have long ago felt his iron rod, partly while the heathen Romans, after their savage persecution of the Christians, themselves groaned under numberless plagues and calamities, by his righteous vengeance; partly, while other heathens have been broken in pieces by those who bore the Christian name. For although the cruelty, for example, of the Spaniards in America, was unrighteous and detestable, yet did God therein execute his righteous judgment on the unbelieving nations; but they shall experience his iron rod as they never did yet, and then will they all return to their rightful Lord.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 19:15


Re 19:15 Out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword. See PNT "Re 1:16". This symbolizes the word by which he achieved his conquests. And he shall rule them with a rod of iron. See notes on Re 2:27 12:5 This implies not a stern, but a firm and lasting rule. He treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. He shall inflict God's judgments on the sins of the earth. See notes on Re 14:17-19.

Discussion for Revelation 19

    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!
