People's Bible Notes for Revelation 3:11


Re 3:11 I come quickly. The Lord's coming is promised in Re 2:25 3:3 and here. In the first instance it is said he will "come"; in the second, "as a thief"; here, that he will come "quickly". Thy crown. Not the crown of royalty ("diadema" in the Greek), but the garland crown ("stephanos") given as a reward. The crown of the saints is always the latter, a term, which the Greeks did not apply to the royal crown.

Discussion for Revelation 3

    Dewey, Praises be unto God and His son and savior. These things were spoken in the word of God but in considering these words I must add it is also it is also written, "For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour." It is of no significance that men are called gods because Satan declared it from the beginning," and ye shall be as gods," Gen, 3:5

    Elijah, to finish that scripture Gal.2:20 ...the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me. Ep. 2:8,9 "For by grace are he saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:v9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. Ro.10:4 says," For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone that believeth".

    Elijah, I meant John 10:34,35,36. Also,Psalms 82:6,7 same subject about men which Jesus used to make a greater revelation about himself. John 1:17 says, "For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.St. Paul said in Gal.2:20 "I am crucified with Christ:nevertheless I live yet not I but Christ live in me and the life that I now live In the flesh I live by faith in the...

    Elijah, good point this is not clear in many scriptures so let's start with what Jesus said to the religious rulers in his generation. In. 10:34, 35, 36. If he (God) called them gods; unto whom the word of God came , (men) and the scripture cannot be broken; Say ye of him, whom the father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, thou blasphemes;because I said, I am the Son of God.See Psalms 82:6
  • A disciple
    Elijah; I read your response to my post. The Angels who are charged with keeping us and bringing us the things we need from God; as God has given all provision for our life and success by grace; the WORD is our responsibility Luke 10:20. Just as it was for the Israelites who were seduced to sin with the Moabitish women; men put themselves outside of God's favor and protection they are responsible.
  • Elijah
    Dewey, were in scripture do you find this interpretation? Jesus refers to the pastors or men of the churches as angels. Jesus is speaking by his faith which all Christians live by. It does not infer this in the scripture that you referenced. To the law and to the testimony Isa.8:20
