Wesley's Notes for Revelation 3:4


3:4 Yet thou hast a few names - That is, persons. But though few, they had not separated themselves from the rest; otherwise, the angel of Sardis would not have had them. Yet it was no virtue of his, that they were unspotted; whereas it was his fault that they were but few. Who have not defiled their garments - Either by spotting themselves, or by partaking of other men's sins. They shall walk with me in white - in joy; in perfect holiness; in glory. They are worthy - A few good among many bad are doubly acceptable to God. O how much happier is this worthiness than that mentioned, #Rev 16:6|.

Discussion for Revelation 3

  • A disciple
    Charles; Don't be afraid, trust in the Lord! He has promised that not one of those which the Father has given Him shall perish; and a bruised reed He will not break, nor will He quench a smoking flax. No one is able to pluck us out of the Father's hand! Keep reading your Bible every day, and resist the devil's temptations by standing on the Scriptures. Never give up!
  • Charles
    Well it scares me I don't know if I can make it. I love God but I don't if I can make it.
  • 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?
