New Defender’s Study Bible Notes

Revelation (22;4)

 

22:4 they shall see His face. This is the last reference in the Bible to the face of Jesus Christ. We shall finally see Him face to face! The gospel writers frequently mention His face, but they never give a description. After His arrest and trial, the Roman soldiers “struck Him on the face” (Luke 22:64), apparently so severely and repeatedly that “His visage was so marred more than any man” (Isaiah 52:14). But when He comes again, and we see Him, we shall rejoice forever in “the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ” (II Corinthians 4:6)

The Face of Jesus Christ
“And they shall see his face, and his name shall be on their foreheads.” (Revelation 22:4)

Revelation 12 Then, I turned to see the voice that was speaking to me, and on turning I saw seven golden lampstands, 13 and in the midst of the lampstands one like a son of man, clothed with a long robe and with a golden sash around his chest. 14 The hairs of his head were white, like white wool, like snow. His eyes were like a flame of fire, 15 his feet were like burnished bronze, refined in a furnace, and his voice was like the roar of many waters. 16 In his right hand he held seven stars, from his mouth came a sharp two-edged sword, and his face was like the sun shining in full strength.

17 When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. But he laid his right hand on me, saying, “Fear not, I am the first and the last, 18 and the living one. I died, and behold I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of Death and Hades. 19 Write therefore the things that you have you seen, those that are and those that are to take place after this. 20
