People's Bible Notes for Revelation 3:21


Re 3:21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne. He shall reign with Christ; that is, as a coadjutor of Christ. As I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. As the result of his overcoming God exalted him to be a Prince and a Saviour (Ac 5:31), and to sit at the right hand of the Majesty of the heavens (Heb 8:1). As he was exalted, so he will exalt all his brethren who win the victory over sin and temptation.

    Elijah, I meant John 10:34,35,36. Also,Psalms 82:6,7 same subject about men which Jesus used to make a greater revelation about himself. John 1:17 says, "For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.St. Paul said in Gal.2:20 "I am crucified with Christ:nevertheless I live yet not I but Christ live in me and the life that I now live In the flesh I live by faith in the...

    Elijah, good point this is not clear in many scriptures so let's start with what Jesus said to the religious rulers in his generation. In. 10:34, 35, 36. If he (God) called them gods; unto whom the word of God came , (men) and the scripture cannot be broken; Say ye of him, whom the father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, thou blasphemes;because I said, I am the Son of God.See Psalms 82:6
  • A disciple
    Elijah; I read your response to my post. The Angels who are charged with keeping us and bringing us the things we need from God; as God has given all provision for our life and success by grace; the WORD is our responsibility Luke 10:20. Just as it was for the Israelites who were seduced to sin with the Moabitish women; men put themselves outside of God's favor and protection they are responsible.
  • Elijah
    Dewey, were in scripture do you find this interpretation? Jesus refers to the pastors or men of the churches as angels. Jesus is speaking by his faith which all Christians live by. It does not infer this in the scripture that you referenced. To the law and to the testimony Isa.8:20
  • Dewey J
    Elijah, read Rev. 1:20 to understand Rev. 3:7. Rev. 1:20 The mystery of the stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches. And the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches. Jesus refers to the pastors or men of the churches as angels. Jesus is speaking by his faith which all Christians live by.
