Explain this Verse

revelation 14 12  Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of GOD and the  faith  of  Jesus

What are the commandments of God for us?  

Mark 9:7  And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.  

John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

What is the patience of the saints?    

Their works follow them: The patient endurance and work of these saints is remembered in heaven. Our work for the Lord goes with us into heaven. Your witnessing and prayers shall be remembered. You could do nothing and still go to heaven, because you are saved in Jesus. But, we really do love God and want to serve him, don't we? We are free.  

1 Pet 2:15  For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:
1 Pet 2:16  As free, (saved by Jesus) and not using your liberty for a cloak of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.
1 Pet 2:17  Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.


One basic truth here, by faith in Jesus we are saved, not by works of the law. Second, once saved we obey him from His Spirit that gives us his truth. Third, apart from Jesus our law keeping is never enough to escape God's wrath, but in Jesus we are FREE of God's wrath.   By this we know that Jesus saves us and after we are saved he wants us to obey him. No man can obey apart from God's help. We have God in us now. We are blessed, and we are free of God's wrath.
