People's Bible Notes for Revelation 3:14


Re 3:14 THE CHURCH AT LAODICEA The church of the Laodiceans. Laodicea was situated in the valley of the Lycus, near Colosse and Hierapolis. All three of these churches are named by Paul in the Colossian letter, and an epistle, now probably lost, was sent to Laodicea. The city of Laodicea was very proud of its wealth in the latter part of the first century, a fact we learn from profane history. The church was probably founded by Epaphras, a companion of Paul. The condemnation of the Lord in this epistle is severe, and its extinction is threatened. The site of the ancient city is uninhabited now, and of course the church has long since cease to exist. The Amen, the faithful and true witness. See notes on Re 1:5 2Co 1:20. The beginning of the creation of God. The Being from which the creation begins, the Word that made all things.

Discussion for Revelation 3

  • Douglas Gilbert Wells
    Stay with him even sometimes you a walking alone that. That is what enemy of above this world would like you to think
  • 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.
