Wesley's Notes for Revelation 3:10


3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience - The word of Christ is indeed a word of patience. I also will keep thee - O happy exemption from that spreading calamity! From the hour of temptation - So that thou shalt not enter into temptation; but it shall pass over thee. The hour denotes the short time of its continuance; that is, at any one place. At every one it was very sharp, though short; wherein the great tempter was not idle, #Rev 2:10|. Which hour shall come upon the whole earth - The whole Roman empire. It went over the Christians, and over the Jews and heathens; though in a very different manner. This was the time of the persecution under the seemingly virtuous emperor Trajan. The two preceding persecutions were under those monsters, Nero and Domitian; but Trajan was so admired for his goodness, and his persecution was of such a nature, that it was a temptation indeed, and did throughly try them that dwelt upon the earth.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 3:10


Re 3:10 Thou hast kept the word of my patience. Hast endured and kept my word. I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation. Of stern and cruel trial. Some great crisis of trial and sorrow which should come on all the world. We may not know just what our Lord referred to, but we can believe that he fulfilled his promise.

Discussion for Revelation 3

  • A disciple
    Insight; the example that the Lord uses, of "like a thief in the night," is simply just that! When he sees the world sleeping carelessly and completely unprepared for what's coming... Like a thief in the night, He will break in on them and their world will be shattered and destroyed. The warning is obvious, that we keep awake spiritually, and not be lulled to sleep by the enchantments of the world

  • A disciple
    "I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead." Judgment BEGINS at the house of God: unlike what is so popularly taught among the many who wish to avoid the cross, and the scorn and persecution of the world. Revelation starts with the Lord's convictings and warnings to the Christians to live ready and to walk in truth, with the view toward the things coming on the world.

    In verse 17 the Laodiceans thought they were doing good because they were materially well-off. We must put spiritual things first and not material things.
