Wesley's Notes for Revelation 22:16


22:16 I Jesus have sent my angel to testify these things - Primarily. To you - The seven angels of the churches; then to those churches - and afterwards to all other churches in succeeding ages. I - as God. Am the root - And source of David's family and kingdom; as man, an descended from his loins. I am the star out of Jacob, #Num 24:17|; like the bright morning star, who put an end to the night of ignorance, sin, and sorrow, and usher in an eternal day of light, purity, and joy.

  • Anthony Palmer for verse 16
    I need a better understanding of this verse....I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
  • Timothy Wayne George for verse 16
    Jesus is the bright morning star, as Numbers 24:17 led the wise men to Jesus, He is the Light of the world, the way, and the truth. No man comes to the Father except through Jesus. Lucifer was the cherub that led the stones of fire in heaven, until iniquity was found in him. There will be no need for the sun, for Jesus will light the Kingdom of Heaven. As the Root, and offspring of David he shall rule on his father's kingdom forever.
