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
    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

    All things belong to God the creator
  • 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.
