People's Bible Notes for Revelation 19:16


Re 19:16 He hath on [his] vesture and on his thigh. This probably signifies that the name was written on his vesture, even on his thigh. The Greek may be so translated. King of Kings. Of the various titles given to Christ in this passage this is the highest and marks him as supreme. There are four titles given in the passage: (1) Faithful and True (Re 19:11). (2) A name "that no man knew, but he himself" (Re 19:12). (3) The Word of God (Re 19:13). (4) King of kings, and Lord of lords (Re 19:16). The sublime imagery of this passage portrays the spiritual march and conquest of Christ. A purified church, following Christ, holy and true, shall carry the word in triumphant power to the nations. The armies of the saints, all united under Christ, led by him, strengthened by him, hence invincible, are marching to the great final conflict with the hosts of evil.

Discussion for Revelation 19:16

  • Jodie Hofbauer for verse 16
    Why is everybody hung up on the old testament. When Cleary we are set free from the law in the new testament. If you shave or trim your hair or beard then you are sinning according to the same passage in Leviticus.
  • To Kay: Yes. Jesus made real what we cannot and should not by the power of G d. For us, what we experience is an occurance symbolic to the given for the purpose of conveying the truth as transpired. A more direct message than can be derived from man 's testiment alone. Yes, Jesus gives us the voice of many waters as the spoken word. If one can rise above the spoken word of man, one can transcend and walk on it. In otherwords, what we are given at judgement is that no judgement may be made by man since sin is in man. Therefore, we cannot judge each other, we can, though choose to learn and grow from what is offered, much to be facetious and coddling and rendering of all manner of attempts to foil what G d has to offer in the way of gifts. Christ 's people can cross the bridge over water, symbolically, some must walk through the water, which is to some considered walking through "the fire " to prove dedication. - Hopes to clarify.
  • On my right thigh is written by god that came on to me like refined and the door opened in front of me that no one can open and shut but he that commands it and on my thigh as God is my witness is written out of my vein and it is in the shape of the Big Dipper
  • The Word of God also says "my people perish for the lack of knowledge ". Some people, especially the ones who profess to have been born again of the water and of the spirit, have and do all day long reject knowledge. Unless you were born with markings and letters on your body, then by the spirit of righteousness, and from the knowledge of the Spirit of God 's Word, one will know. The Lord and Savior JESUS said, Take my yoke upon you and learn of me, Matt. 11:29.
  • Gideon Masese for verse 16
    Rev 19:16 says, "...its written... ". not pierced. People should understand this.
