Wesley's Notes for Revelation 3:9


3:9 Behold, I - who have all power; and they must then comply. I will make them come and bow down before thy feet - Pay thee the lowest homage. And know - At length, that all depends on my love, and that thou hast a place therein. O how often does the judgment of the people turn quite round, when the Lord looketh upon them! #Job 42:7|, &c.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 3:9


Re 3:9 I will make them of the synagogue of Satan. The bitter Jewish opposers are thus described. See PNT "Re 2:9". I will make them to come and worship before thy feet. Acknowledge that the Lord is with them. It seems also to imply the conversion of these Jewish opposers.

    A disciple, amen nothing is significant in scripture except what God says! Glory be to God in the highest!

    Elijah; to what you wrote, (It is of no significance that men are called gods because Satan declared it from the beginning, "and ye shall be as gods," Gen, 3:5) God calls them gods to whom the Word of God comes and the Scriptures cannot be broken; I'd say that it is extremely significant, and has to do with being the children of God. The great ones of the heathen are no gods but the works of men.
  • Elijah
    Dewey, Praises be unto God and His son and savior. These things were spoken in the word of God but in considering these words I must add it is also it is also written, "For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour." It is of no significance that men are called gods because Satan declared it from the beginning," and ye shall be as gods," Gen, 3:5

Ep. 2:8,9 "For by grace are he saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:v9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. Ro.10:4 says," For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone that believeth".

    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
