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.

    This very verse brought me into the light after smoking for 46 yrs. I do not yet think I am where I need to be . Please pray I might put me behind me, and concentrate on my children and their lack of knowing the Lord! thank You
  • Jay Plumlee for verse 11
    We are to be witnesses to the lost- not be their saviors. We are not supposed to reasoning with someone who seeks only to waste our time playing silly games with us. Jesus said "You follow me ". Did Jesus follow after those who refused to listen to wisdom? Did he chase after those who mocked God? Did Noah waste his time pleading with those who refused to get into the Ark? If he did waste his time like that... would the Ark have been built? We are to be witnesses of what we know to be true. Those we speak to must decide for themselves what is true or false. Beware of the "Time Bandits " who just want to trap you so you go nowhere.

  • Emmanuel Kayode for verse 11
    well this verse remind me of whom i am when i want to sin and the reward that wait me
  • Olabode for verse 11
    There are four categories of people as far as this verse is concerned. 1. the evil people 2. the unclean people 3. righteous people 4. holy people. Anybody that is practicing either of the four should continue with it. The bible says we cannot serve two masters. So, the evil people should continue with their evil doing likewise, the unclean should continue with the uncleanness, the righteous should continue with their righteousness and finally, the holy should should continue with their holiness. We shall all have our rewards.
