Bible Commentary for Revelation 7:14

Wesley's Notes for Revelation 7:14


7:14 My lord - Or, my master; a common term of respect. So Zechariah, likewise, bespeaks the angel, #Zec 1:9|; 4:4; 6:4. Thou knowest - That is, I know not; but thou dost. These are they - Not martyrs; for these are not such a multitude as no man can number. But as all the angels appear here, so do all the souls of the righteous who had lived from the beginning of the world. Who come - He does not say, who did come; but, who come now also: to whom, likewise, pertain all who will come hereafter. Out of great affliction - Of various kinds, wisely and graciously allotted by God to all his children. And have washed their robes - From all guilt. And made them white - In all holiness. By the blood of the Lamb - Which not only cleanses, but adorns us also.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 7:14


Re 7:14 Thou knowest. "I do not know, but thou dost". These are they which came out of the great tribulation. Some great period of trial of the church is meant. They have stood the trial, and been true. And have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Have made themselves spotless by trust in the blood of Christ.

    This is the barley harvest after the first fruits are sealed the faithful church in Revelation 3:10 and the church that is watching and praying they are worthy to escape these things in Luke 21:36 it is the rapture but not like you have been taught it's not the trumpet sounding and the dead in Christ rising in 2 thess that happens at wheat harvest which is at the last trumpet the 7th trumpet in Revelation which the barley wheat and first fruits will also be apart of the grape harvest comes later with those who didn't take the mark are raised to life again to rule and reign with us a 1000 years there are 3 harvests after the first fruits 144000 are sealed so it's the rapture of the faithful church that is watching and worthy to escape the 7 trumpets it's the barley harvest
  • K D Harms on Revelation 7:14
    In the RSV Version, Chap.7, V.14 Must be understood in light of the intermediate context of Revelation Chaps. 1-3 The overall instructions with subsequent promises to the churches of Asia (minor) Rev.3 10 says, "Because you individual 'you' have kept the word of my patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial which is coming on the whole earth to try all those who dwell upon the earth." This promise is to all the churches from the first century until now. Chap 7 v 13, He who has an ear let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. That's churches plural. This admonition is repeated at the close of the addresses to all the churches. The Church is not appointed unto wrath.
  • Donnie Cheesman on Revelation 7:14
    The Word of Almighty God, and Christ in MT 24 speaks clearly that the Saints will be gathered in a time of great suffering during the tribulation period. We the believers in the Word of God must be prepared to "Endure to the end. " In any case He will come as a thief in the night, therfore WATCH, remain vigilent and expectant for His return. WATCH!
  • Omary Minzi on Revelation 7:14
    Can someone help me if the church will witness the tribulation before the rapture according to Rev 7 14? If yes for how many years and will it be affected as well? Minzi from Tanzania
  • Anonymous on Revelation 7:14
    It sounds like the church will witness the tribulation before the rapture. However they will not ge victims of the tribulation since they are marked with the blood of Jesus. Then they will be taken in heaven before coming back to rule with Jesus for 1000 years. That is what I think. Minzi frlm Tanzania
