Wesley's Notes for Revelation 22:15


22:15 Without are dogs - The sentence in the original is abrupt, as expressing abhorrence. The gates are ever open; but not for dogs; fierce and rapacious men.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 22:15


Re 22:15 For without [are] dogs. In an oriental city the dogs, an unclean animal, are seen in great numbers in the streets, and are a disagreeable feature. These are taken to represent one type of sinners. Others with different characteristics are also given. And sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. All are "without". None of them ever pass through the portals of the New Jerusalem.

    There is nothing to think and ponder on our own wandering thoughts but to BELEIVE what Christ has revealed to those upon whom His grace is.

    REV 22:18 FOR I TESTIFY UNTO EVERY MAN THAT HEARETH THE WORDS OF THE PROPHECY OF THIS BOOK-IF-ANY MAN SHALL ADD UNTO THESE THINGS GOD SHALL ADD UNTO HIM THE PLAGUES THAT ARE-WRITTEN-IN THIS BOOK 19 AND-IF-ANY MAN SHALL TAKE AWAY FROM THE WORDS OF THE BOOK OF THIS PROPHECY GOD SHALL-TAKE AWAY-HIS PART OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE AND OUT OF THE HOLY CITY AND FROM THE THINGS WHICH ARE- WRITEN-INTHIS BOOK
  • Eliiah
    Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. Jesus Christ walks in the flesh this very day. Every spirit, whether it be of God or is antichrist, knows that Jesus Christ is alive and can be seen in the flesh this very day: so let the thoughts of every heart be revealed! Who is a liar but he that denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denies the Father and the Son.
  • Irene123
    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
