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.

  • Mishael - in Reply on Revelation 3:14
    Romans Chapter 1. You can go through Old Testament , but I think Romans is simple to understand. For the unsaved world to believe they can force God to obey Their demands, is laughable.

    But it will not be funny when God gives the Word for the Rapture to commence. A blink of the eye.
  • Alex on Revelation 3:14
    Comments by Alex on the reason Jesus had to die, It was simply for the sins of the World, Behold the lamb of God that taketh away the SINS of the world, But there is a hidden facet to the Cross, its multiplication when a seed dies it multiplies that was the great Promise I will multiply thy seed as the Stars of heaven, He told the Greeks that wanted to see him unless a seed dies it abides alone but if it dies it will bring forth much fruit impling many Christ as the stars of heaven that every man might gets a seed a measure of faith etc. That every man might birth a baby Christ which is the result of the New Birth via the seed of the sower thus an Israel of God. The multiplication of Issac resulted in the nation of Israel, but the multiplcation of Christ via his seed the word will result an Israel of GOD. Thats y he is saying that which is born of the spirit is spirit as God is spirit, The PROMISE WHICH IS THE H.G. A lil one shall become a 1000 and a small one a strong nation thats the result of his seed an Israel of God. Thus we see multiplication via his seed the Word . Thats y he said smite the shepherd and the sheep will be scattered then i will turn my hand to the little ones , little ones imply multiplication via his death, smite the shepherd implied his death. And to whom his word came it made them Gods thats y scriptures says this corruption must put on incorruption and this MORTAL MUST PUT ON IMMORTALITY that means we are gona be Gods thats what the H.G. is the multiplication of very God in us sinners thus IMMORTALITY IS GOD thats y God swore by his very self when he made that PROMISE to Christ, its GOD THAT WANTS A POSTERITY, AND CHRIST WAS JUST HIS 1ST BORN OF MANY BRETHREN. We are gonna live for ever under this new covenant . Thats y the prophets were so amazed saying what manner of love has the father bestoded upon us. we are gona be absolute sons like JESUS doing the works he did and Greater. Behold the lamb of God that taketh away th sins of the world

    My question to you is... Have you tried to find out what this verse means before posting your statement? As a student of the bible, having access to the thoughts of other bible scholars is helpful in understanding verses like this. Having the tools that pertain directly to the things of God is crucial. 2 Timothy 2:15 is clear.

    We do not have to agree with everything we read in our research, but it helps to get some kind of perspective on what another student, or teacher thinks about a particular verse.
  • Student on Revelation 3:14
    Even I don't know what this means being the Beginning of the creation of God, you cannot refer to a few verses and make a point about this topic which you call the trinitarians. There are as well as many places that clearefies that Jesus is Lord and God. Amen.
  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on Revelation 3:14
    In this instance the word "beginning " can be defined as "that by which anything begins to be, the origin, the active cause" as proclaimed in Colossians 1:17, "And he is before all things, and by him all things consist."
  • Grant on Revelation 3:14
    Rev 3:14 agrees with Col 1:15. Both say that Jesus is a creation. Also, Jesus was the first born from the dead to live forever. Rev 1:18, Rom 5:6, 1Peter 3:18 and Heb 2:9. Even God said it was Jesus who died, not God. Trinitarians, read from your own bible these verses and learn the truth.
