Wesley's Notes for Revelation 22:14


22:14 Happy are they that do his commandments - His, who saith, I come - He speaks of himself. That they may have right - Through his gracious covenant. To the tree of life - To all the blessings signified by it. When Adam broke his commandment, he was driven from the tree of life. They who keep his commandments shall eat thereof.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 22:14


Re 22:14 Blessed [are] they that do his commandments. "Blessed are they that wash their robes" (Revised Version). Those who have their robes washed are those whose sins are forgiven, and who obey Christ. These have the right to enter the city, for no sinner can enter there.

    Karoline:These describe the rivers, streets and fruit of the NEW JERUSALEM. Besides the 12 great rivers in the midst of the 12 great Broadway's going thru the 12 gates into all parts of the earth, there will be all kind of fountains of water of life in the city. On both sides of the 12 great rivers flowing for 1500 miles thru the great Broadway's will be trees of life. There will be no more curse

    "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.
