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.

    "He that overcomes shall inherit all things and I will be his God, and he shall be my son." When the Lord Jesus began to teach His disciples about the kingdom of heaven He was expounding on the same things as He was preaching in the Synagogues all across the Country. He was the Glad Tidings of Salvation come in the flesh, to give His life a ransom and save us from our sins and to teach us by word and example what we must do in order to be found worthy of really and finally obtaining the benefit. "If ye love me, keep my commandments and I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever even the Spirit of truth.." We who believe in Jesus, love Him and we work out our salvation with fear and trembling, to stay true to Him, and to be a light for others to see Jesus in us. God made us to be His children. Sin has polluted our conscience, marred the image of God in our character, and made us unfit for His presence. Sin brought us death, and works out death in us. The Lord Jesus Christ was manifested to take away our sins and reconcile us to God and has given us His Spirit into our hearts to help us do the work of changing into that man or woman after God's own heart, as He originally intended for us to be.

Matthias was chosen by the Holy Ghost. Praise God!
