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

  • A disciple
    Elijah; What has it to do with our salvation? Easy! What was ruined and lost for us by Adam and Eve's sin? What then was the thing that God created us for to begin with? Since the disaster in Eden, and the resulting expulsion as unfit from the presence of God, none of us has ever had a chance to find out what it even means that we were made in the image of God. That's what our salvation is for!
  • A disciple
    Dewey; Thank you Brother! Praise the LORD for His mercy forever and His wonderful works toward the children of men! With the wicked springing like grass and all restraint apparently being removed, we know that our redemption draws near, and very soon our faith will be turned to sight. Be strong and stand tough! All provision has been made for our success and endurance "unto the end!" Hallelu Jah!
  • Elijah
    Praises to the Father and son: To one and all, when I stated it is of no significance, I was taking the same attitude of Christ when he told his explanation for making this stated fact in John 32. He was telling the crowd of people to calm down because it was no big deal that he had stated such. Secondly, how does the disclosure of this fact, have any effect on my salvation?
  • Dewey J
    A disciple, amen nothing is significant in scripture except what God says! Glory be to God in the highest!
  • A disciple
    Elijah; to what you wrote, (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) God calls them gods to whom the Word of God comes and the Scriptures cannot be broken; I'd say that it is extremely significant, and has to do with being the children of God. The great ones of the heathen are no gods but the works of men.
  • Elijah
    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
