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.

Discussion for Revelation 3

  • A disciple
    Stevish; There is no end of [so-called] recommended Bibles and Bible Teachers. But what says the Holy Spirit in the Scriptures? "The anointing that we have from Him abides in us, and we have NO NEED that anyone teach us..."

    Stevish: The Chain Reference is a great Bible. So much information. I love that Bible.

  • 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.
