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.

    They trusted the lie Satan told them. As did Satan, they stopped being God centered and became self centered, pride.
  • Josephine H Holcomb Pike on Revelation 3:9
    why would they want to say they are Jew?

    Hello Josephine,

    What a good question and discovery from your careful reading! Thanks

    There are currently a growing number of cults of young people who falsely claim they are the new "Jews". I don't bother to list & track each one, but to name names one of them calls themselves with the number 19 or 99 in it. Before these, there was a group led by Herbert Amstrong, called the Worldwide Church of God last century. They had a long running TVangelism which probably influenced the current groups when they were kids. They alleged that the USA is the Promised Land and featured in End Times prophecy. Then WCC had internal strive that broke into two or three other groups, one being the Great Church of God. (It amuses me how these cults always have a name that tries to patent their claim on God or Jesus)

    Their motives are power, control, and pride, and money, yet they truly believe that they can benefit by claiming all the blessings of Abraham onto themselves. They make half truths and outrageous lies that Yahweh God (they do try to use a bit of what they think are Hebrew words) has long ago cut off the ancient Israelites so that the modern nation of Israel are on their own. The fake Jews also claim they are the true spiritual Israel

    It is a gross misreading and distortion of what Saint Paul wrote in Romans 9 & 10. No room for misinterpretation there as Paul explained those chapters well. But the few leaders who create these false claims also see that their claim to uniqueness makes religion exciting to potential suckers who are bored with the mainstream offers

    Why would someone claim to be a Jew who is not?

    So, answer this:

    Why would the Antichrist claim to be the Messiah but is not?

    Why would the serpent claim Eve could eat of the fruit and not die when that was not true?

    Why do people lie?

    Because Satan is the father of all lies and deception and he rules earth. He is trying to deceive people in order to separate them from God. You seem like you don't realize that pretty much EVERYONE IS LYING TO YOU. If they are not Christian, they are lying to you. Period. The TV lies, books lie, science lies, government lies, everyone is lying to you. If you believe the lies, then you do not have the Spirit of Truth in you. That is the only way one can discern lies and deceit. And 99% of what you hear and see will be half-truths or lies or disinformation or misinformation, so question everything.

    1 Peter 5:8--Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

    Your post seems to be intentionally offensive, And is far from the truth.

    That reply has no place here.

    :This is a site where Iron sharpens Iron. Not a site where we cause strife and try to tare down the body of Christ.

    Please consider.
  • Guy Anchor on Revelation 3:9
    Many people are trying to pass off as being Jews and have even had their names written in the book that was to remain of Pure Blood. They can fool us. They can fool themselves but they cannot fool God
