Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Revelation 3:15


3:15 I know thy works - Thy disposition and behaviour, though thou knowest it not thyself. That thou art neither cold - An utter stranger to the things of God, having no care or thought about them. Nor hot - As boiling water: so ought we to be penetrated and heated by the fire of love. O that thou wert - This wish of our Lord plainly implies that he does not work on us irresistibly, as the fire does on the water which it heats. Cold or hot - Even if thou wert cold, without any thought or profession of religion, there would be more hope of thy recovery.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 3:15


Re 3:15 I know thy works. The same statement has been made of all the churches, but in all the others there has been something to praise. Thou art neither cold nor hot. Neither acting hostile to Christ, nor zealous for Him. I would thou wert cold or hot. Christ would rather that men should be opposers than formal, apathetic professors.

    In verse 17 the Laodiceans thought they were doing good because they were materially well-off. We must put spiritual things first and not material things.

    I do accept as true with all the concepts you have presented on your post. They're very convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are very brief for starters. Could you please extend them a bit from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.

    How amazing is the word of God! truly everything that happens in our lives its Him who allows and its for good for them who love Him and are the called according to his purpose. see verse 19. God thank you for your grace upon us. without God we are nothing . He describes us as dust, indeed i am. its only Him who strengths me and with Him we have the confidence to enter his holiest . AMEN AMEN AMEN
