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

  • MRP
    THE LORD'S PRAYER : Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. - Put us not to the trial/ test but give us shelter
  • A disciple
    I'm afraid that there are so many willing to "make" Scriptures mean whatever they want; while they wish so bad to escape the way of the cross! As the Apostle said, so I tell you now, even weeping; that they are enemies of the cross of Christ! We are appointed as sheep for the slaughter, to love not our lives unto death; if we might obtain the crown of life. But so many seek to save their lives...
  • MRP
    There is no pre tribulation rapture - but there is a literal,actual,great escape into the wilderness . There will be places of safety from the great tribulation,that being God's judgement upon the world,for them that search and are approved and chosen by God himself . Watch and pray to be found worthy and to recognize the given sign for what it is,the abomination of desolation,and then move out .
  • Nathaniel A Saunders
    I've understood that I must change and turn myself to the Lord Jesus Christ and if I love Jesus I must keep his commandments and the father would love me as well. I also learn that there is NO man who doesn't get reborn he will not be able to enter in the Kingdom of GOD
  • A disciple
    Charles; Don't be afraid, trust in the Lord! He has promised that not one of those which the Father has given Him shall perish; and a bruised reed He will not break, nor will He quench a smoking flax. No one is able to pluck us out of the Father's hand! Keep reading your Bible every day, and resist the devil's temptations by standing on the Scriptures. Never give up!
  • Charles
    Well it scares me I don't know if I can make it. I love God but I don't if I can make it.
