Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Revelation 22:11


22:11 He that is unrighteous - As if he had said, The final judgment is at hand; after which the condition of all mankind will admit of no change for ever. Unrighteous - Unjustified. Filthy - Unsanctified, unholy.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 22:11


Re 22:11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still. This is not a command, but a warning. He that is fixed in injustice and unrighteousness, let him go on. The future judgments revealed in the preceding visions show that he shall reap that he has sown. And he that is holy, let him be holy still. But the holy and true, let them be encouraged to press on; they have their reward. The reason that the saints may be sure of this is next given.

    "And, behold, I come quickly and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be." We are left here for the purpose of education and training, trial and proving to prepare us and make us fit for His presence: and so, thereby to be for witnesses through the Holy Spirit in us to convict the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment. For this to be wrought in us absolutely demand work on our part! In the Sermon on the Mount, the Lord Jesus said so in many different ways, that we absolutely have to do something and we have to do it according to all that He has commanded us! We have to be first a certain kind of character: that doesn't come automatically. And we have to have our behavior and religion pure and sincere, as children of our Father in heaven and nothing for a misleading show to be seen by men. And finally, the end result of our lives will without fail, show what kind we are, by whether we do what Jesus says and if not, we shall most miserably perish! Remember, the devil also believes, and trembles! So, when we have passed this time of our "schooling" successfully, then we will see what work the Lord REALLY has for us for eternity! Probably not in Retail, or some other menial job, like we have now! So then, we have work to do to get ready for His coming, and for the coming world He brings.
