Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Revelation 12:11


12:11 And they have overcome him - Carried the cause against him. By the blood of the Lamb - Which cleanses the soul from all sin, and so leaves no room for accusing. And by the word of their testimony - The word of God, which they believed and testified, even unto death. So, for instance, died Olam, king of Sweden, in the year 900, whom his own subjects would have compelled to idolatry; and, upon his refusal, slew as a sacrifice to the idol which he would not worship. So did multitudes of Bohemian Christians, in the year 916, when queen Drahomire raised a severe persecution, wherein many loved not their lives unto the death.

Discussion for Revelation 12

  • Eliiah the Prophet
    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::::::::For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through him might be saved.
  • Sabbathkeeper
    The battle we wage is spiritual and it's about truth vs apostacy. Apostacy is false teaching aka doctrines of men. There is physical suffering on earth for God's chosen because the devil makes ear with them like when Rome killed 100 million during the dark ages. It will be them again beheading people. They put prophecy as far in future so you don't see the wound healing like NOW with UNITY push.
  • BSP
    Verse 12 shows that the earth is experiencing great woe because Satan the Devil has been hurled down here and he knows that his time is short.

    Finally! Someone gets it. Onsase is spot on. The seal of God is like any other seal. It has the name:God,title: creator , dominion: heaven and earth- all described in the 4th commandment. Only way NOT to get the MARK is by being sealed in the forehead (your mind) being grounded in truth. Read Rev 14:12 , then 19:10 and you'll see what the 3angels messages show you must understand. Peace to you all
  • Onsase
    The woman dressed with sun and moon under feet is the church of God,the remnant church of God which does Gods will,
    Gods will is doing doing as per Gods commandments.
    There are ten commandments given by God summarized by Jesus Christmas
    1.love your neighbor. As you love yourself
    2.love your God with your all.
    The mark and identifier of Gods people is the sabbath day as given as the fourth command
