Wesley's Notes for Revelation 3:22


3:22 He that hath an ear, let him hear, &c. - This stands in the three former letters before the promise; in the four latter, after it; clearly dividing the seven into two parts; the first containing three, the last, four letters. The titles given our Lord in the three former letters peculiarly respect his power after his resurrection and ascension, particularly over his church; those in the four latter, his divine glory, and unity with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Again, this word being placed before the promises in the three former letters, excludes the false apostles at Ephesus, the false Jews at Smyrna, and the partakers with the heathens at Pergamos, from having any share therein. In the four latter, being placed after them, it leaves the promises immediately joined with Christ's address to the angel of the church, to show that the fulfilling of these was near; whereas the others reach beyond the end of the world. It should be observed, that the overcoming, or victory, (to which alone these peculiar promises are annexed,) is not the ordinary victory obtained by every believer; but a special victory over great and peculiar temptations, by those that are strong in faith.

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.

    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.
