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.

    Matt. 28:19; Acts 2:38; Acts 4:12; Rev. 22:4 - "..... and His NAME shall be in their foreheads." All 4 of these scriptures proclaim this ONE name of Jesus; not 3 titles (aspects) of God. Jesus Himself told His Apostles/disciples to baptize in the NAME; and in Acts 2:38 that is exactly what Peter AND the other 11 did: they proclaimed the name of Jesus for remission of sins in water baptism.

    joyce --2 peter 2:2 and many shall follow their pernicious ways by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of 2 peter 2:21 for even hereunto were you called because CHRIST also suffered for us leaving us an example that you should follow HIS steps PHIL1:29 FOR UNTO YOU IT IS GIVEN IN THE BEHALF OF CHRIST NOT ONLY TO BELIEVE ON HIM BUT ALSO TO SUFFER FOR HIS SAKE -- HOW WILL WE SUFFER
  • Joyce Cardoza
    Wayne Our brother in Christ is telling the truth of the word of God, not to many in here know the truth, sounds like a lot of people want to suffer to make themselves worthy, but Jesus Christ paid for our sins so that we didn't have to. its done it's been paid for once and for all, by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. God bless you all. and may you have the peace that Jesus Christ wants for you
