Wesley's Notes for Revelation 2:22


2:22 I will cast her into a bed - into great affliction - and them that commit either carnal or spiritual adultery with her, unless they repent - She had her time before. Of her works - Those to which she had enticed their and which she had committed with them. It is observable, the angel of the church at Thyatira was only blamed for suffering her. This fault ceased when God took vengeance on her. Therefore he is not expressly exhorted to repent, though it is implied.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 2:22


Re 2:22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed. Sickness and a bed are symbols of affliction and punishment. And them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation. This is the term applied to idolatrous Israel (Jer 3:9 Eze 16:32). To practice the idolatrous rites of this faction would be spiritual adultery.

    Annwashi1955; Hebrews 12:2 LOOKING UNTO JESUS! We are taught by the Lord, and all His servants, that we are set to encounter tribulation, temptations, opposition and contradiction, from the world, the flesh, and the devil. The only way for us to walk in constant victory and a good conscience toward God, is by an earnest contending through the Spirit, out of a deeply established heart for Jesus.
  • Annwashi1955
    It is true we have left out our first love for Jesus. We have become too busy with the things of this life and have not sought first the kingdom of heaven. Let us repent, right now.
  • A disciple
    To Irene from 3 months ago, Jeremiah 6; All of the churches were "salvageable" otherwise the Lord wouldn't have sent to speak to them to repent! Ephesus was in danger of being removed altogether of her place even as a Lampstand for the Lord because they forgot their first love! So what good then will be all their activities? Laodicea was rich in this world, luke warm, stupid and blind spiritually.
  • A disciple
    We have no real comparison today to the Church in Ephesus, as far as importance and leadership among the Churches. It looks like they were just perfect in their religious activities, and nothing to be blamed, but the Lord points to their fault as so serious, that He is about to remove them from being His light bearers in the world. How could their hearts have grown cold toward Jesus?
  • 777insight
    The white stone is not the stone of the Christian church. The foundation of the Christian church is, Jesus is savior. This white stone has the name of the Son of Man, not the son of God, written as savior = religion of Israel. They call the son of their God, their false bloodline christ, a killer, the rod of iron is a rifle. Jesus does not kill, he never breaks GODs law not to kill.
