Wesley's Notes for Revelation 21:7


21:7 He that overcometh - Which is more than, he that thirsteth. Shall inherit these things - Which I have made new. I will be his God, and he shall be my son - Both in the Hebrew and Greek language, in which the scriptures were written, what we translate shall and will are one and the same word. The only difference consists in an English translation, or in the want of knowledge in him that interprets what he does not understand.

Discussion for Revelation 21

  • Jesse Bryant
    Rev. 21:14 we have to wait for the new heaven and Earth to finally know for sure the answer to one of the great perplexing question​s of the last two thousand years... Was the twelfth apostle indeed Paul or Matthias...
  • Irene123
    Fonz - Of course v. 4 is speaking of heaven; the NEW heaven 'n earth, not this one. Because v. 1 refers to a new heaven and earth - we just refer to the whole of it as heaven.
  • Fonz
    In the verse it says "death will be no more"... Obviously it isn't talking about heaven because there is no death in heaven.it speaks about a new Paradise earth.
  • Willie Rose
    God is real and loving come to God for he has made Jesus our Savior
  • Marshal
    One of my favorite passages is Revelation 21:7. For myself, as saved by the blood of Jesus Christ, this is a three-fold promise: 1) I will inherit all things. 2) God will be my God. 3) I will be God's son.

    This is for eternity. What an amazing thought. If it were able, even time itself would not be able to keep up with God's love to us.
  • Irene123
    People need to quit worrying about when the dead will rise and before or after this 'n that - and look to their own salvation.
