  • Attributes of Jesus

    Revelation 3:7 ESV
    7 “And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: ‘The words of the holy one, the true one, who has the key of David, who opens and no one will shut, who shuts and no one opens.
    Holy One- Set apart, distinct, unique, truly God
    True One- Genuinely Messiah, Words are true, you can trust them
    Key of David- Jesus controls the entrance to David’s house, which ultimately refers to the Messianic kingdom.
    Opens and no one will shut, who shuts and no one opens-
    Opens and shuts what? Door of David- Jesus alone has the power to admit into or exclude from His kingdom.

    Knowledge of Jesus

    Revelation 3:8 ESV
    8 “ ‘I know your works. Behold, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut. I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.
    What does Jesus know about the church in Philadelphia? Your works
    Brief interlude- A word of encouragement to the church. How does Jesus seek to encourage the church?
    Then Jesus resumes his knowledge about the churches works.

    Promises of Jesus

    Revelation 3:9 ESV
    9 Behold, I will make those of the synagogue of Satan who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie—behold, I will make them come and bow down before your feet, and they will learn that I have loved you.
    Revelation 3:10 ESV
    10 Because you have kept my word about patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell on the earth.

    Command of Jesus

    Revelation 3:11 ESV
    11 I am coming soon. Hold fast what you have, so that no one may seize your crown.
    I am coming soon?- Jesus’ return is immanent
    Hold fast what you have- command; what are we to hold fast to? The degree of growth and progress already achieved by the church- the promise of deliverance from the hour of trial and of the soon coming of Jesus carries with in the responsibility of continued effort.
    No one may seize your crown?
    Revelation 1–7: An Exegetical Commentary Exegesis and Exposition

    Perhaps here the more general meaning of victory attached to stephanon should remain undefined.

    Promise to the Overcomer

    Revelation 3:12 ESV
    12 The one who conquers, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God. Never shall he go out of it, and I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down from my God out of heaven, and my own new name.
    Pillar in the temple of my God
    Meaning? Never shall he go out of it-
    Metaphorical- No temple in the New Jerusalem
    Revelation 21:22 ESV
    22 And I saw no temple in the city, for its temple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb.
    Revelation 1–7: An Exegetical Commentary Exegesis and Exposition

    The Jerusalem that comes down from heaven is all temple, and Christ’s victorious ones are its living stones and pillars. The Philadelphian Christians will be permanent, like a pillar in the Temple, and will stand when all else has fallen. They are assured of continuance in God’s presence throughout all eternity (Walvoord).

    Revelation 3:12 ESV
    12 The one who conquers, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God. Never shall he go out of it, and I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down from my God out of heaven, and my own new name.
    Name of my God- belonging to God
    Name of the city of my God- right of citizenship in the New Jerusalem
    Christ’s new name-
    Revelation 1–7: An Exegetical Commentary Exegesis and Exposition

    Christ’s “new name” symbolizes the full revelation of His character promised to the overcomer at Christ’s second advent. Currently, man is incapable of grasping the full theological significance of the incarnation, but that will change. When He comes, the victors will not only appreciate fully who Christ is, but they will bear His new name with Him (Charles; Mounce). Herein is further assurance.

    New Jerusalem which comes down from my God out of heaven
    Revelation 21:1–3 ESV
    1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. 2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.
    Dwelling Place of God is with man! Return to the original intention of God in creation.
    Genesis 3:8 ESV
    8 And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.
    Original intention of God was to have close fellowship with humanity. Sin destroyed that fellowship.
    Genesis 3:22–24 ESV
    22 Then the Lord God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of us in knowing good and evil. Now, lest he reach out his hand and take also of the tree of life and eat, and live forever—” 23 therefore the Lord God sent him out from the garden of Eden to work the ground from which he was taken. 24 He drove out the man, and at the east of the garden of Eden he placed the cherubim and a flaming sword that turned every way to guard the way to the tree of life.
    Revelation 21 is a return to the condition under which God could fellowship with man before the entrance of sin.
    Revelation 21:3 ESV
    3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.
    Finally sin in all its forms and effects will be gone forever.
    Revelation 21:4 ESV
    4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
    This makes fellowship with God, to a degree that we have never experienced, possible forever!
    Revelation 21:5 ESV
    5 And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
    Revelation 21:6 ESV
    6 And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment.
    Revelation 21:7 ESV
    7 The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son.
    Revelation 21:8 ESV
    8 But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”
    Revelation 21:9–10 ESV
    9 Then came one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues and spoke to me, saying, “Come, I will show you the Bride, the wife of the Lamb.” 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great, high mountain, and showed me the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God,
    Rev 21:11-21 you have a description of what the New Jersualem will be like.
    Revelation 21:22 ESV
    22 And I saw no temple in the city, for its temple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb.
    Revelation 21:23 ESV
    23 And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb.
    Revelation 21:24 ESV
    24 By its light will the nations walk, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it,
    Revelation 21:25 ESV
    25 and its gates will never be shut by day—and there will be no night there.
    Revelation 21:26 ESV
    26 They will bring into it the glory and the honor of the nations.
    Revelation 21:27 ESV
    27 But nothing unclean will ever enter it, nor anyone who does what is detestable or false, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
    Revelation 22:1–2 ESV
    1 Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2 through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
    Revelation 22:3 ESV
    3 No longer will there be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him.
    Revelation 22:4 ESV
    4 They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads.
    Revelation 22:5 ESV
    5 And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever.
    Revelation 3:12 ESV
    12 The one who conquers, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God. Never shall he go out of it, and I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down from my God out of heaven, and my own new name.
    Revelation 3:13 ESV
    13 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’
