Wesley's Notes for Revelation 2:27

People's Bible Notes for Revelation 2:27


Re 2:27 He shall rule them. Shall rule as a shepherd is the meaning of the Greek word "poimaino". The rule will not be a cruel, but a guardian rule. With a rod of iron. A scepter of iron means a firm and enduring power. As the vessels of a potter shall be broken to shivers. So the nations shall be broken in pieces and all become one under the rule of Christ.
