Wesley's Notes for Revelation 10:6


10:6 And sware - The six preceding trumpets pass without any such solemnity. It is the trumpet of the seventh angel alone which is confirmed by so high an oath. By him that liveth for ever and ever - Before whom a thousand years are but a day. Who created the heaven, the earth, the sea, and the things that are therein - And, consequently, has the sovereign power over all: therefore, all his enemies, though they rage a while in heaven, on the sea, and on the earth, yet must give place to him. That there shall be no more a time - But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, the mystery of God shall be fulfilled: that is, a time, a chronos, shall not expire before that mystery is fulfilled. A chronos (1111 years) will nearly pass before then, but not quite. The period, then, which we may term a non - chronos (not a whole time) must be a little, and not much, shorter than this. The non - chronos here mentioned seems to begin in the year 800, (when Charles the Great instituted in the west a new line of emperors, or of many kings,) to end in the year 1836; and to contain, among other things, the short time of the third woe, the three times and a half of the woman in the wilderness, and the duration of the beast.


Discussion for Revelation 10

  • Amos had to have exceptional courage to deliver such a message, But I believe Rev,10:11, is for today. The great tribulation is almost here. It 's not punishment, but a testing of our faith.
  • Word
    It 's the world. Every people joined up in their new one world religion and she 's a fancy one with one in charge who they think is Jesus. Why not he can bring lightning from the sky and will bring peace to earth, a false peace and they find that out at the 7th trump.
  • First...put out of your thoughts about Rome.The mountains which the woman sits on are kingdoms.Read Isaiah,Ezekiel,Daniel,Joel...all the Old Testament prophets.The Bible...the WHOLE BIBLE ...is Israel,Jewish centered.Not Rome,not America,not Europe,not Russia,not China.......it all centers around Jerusalem and Israel.Mountains are kingdoms.
  • John
    Pardon my ignorance, I 've been trying to read this book for a while and only slowly getting a feel for it, but could the angel in verse 1 be see as being a vision that could be likened to the interpretation of the statue in Nebuchadnezzar 's dream in Daniel 2? It seems to me as though the head could represent the covenant made with Noah in Genesis 9 and the feet be the day of the Lord in 2 Peter 3.

    God is mystry and his mystry will countinue,the more you thing you know all about God,the more mystry God beging to reveal to you.that is why is good to carry on seeking him on daily basis so that we will know him more and more.his mystry is endless.
  • Word
    Phill you really got rapture out of a loud cry. Wow! Your a real preacher. The ten virgins and as you must know the five didn 't have enough oil to make it into the wedding which means truth and knowledge of the word so the bought and had to sell so they were buying in the world so they were worshipping antichrist and working his system and going to his churches. The other 5 had the truth and knew the false Christ came first so they were prepared. They knew Ezekiel 13 vs 18 an on which says God hates the rapture teachers.
