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.

  • Sabbath keeper and Wife
    It's spiritual Isreal. There's no more "group salvation" . At the stoning of Stephan in 34 ad, when Saul/Paul held the coats of the Pharisees, it was the end of the 70 weeks in Daniel, in which the allotted time for Isreal as a nation to make and end to sins, thus the gospel was given over to Gentiles or anyone who follows the lamb. Don't be fooled. You have as much right as anyone in world
  • Brown
    The woman that brings forth the man child is Israel and the manchild is Jesus .
  • Sabbath keeper and Wife
    The woman is the remnant. God's true followers. Those that follow the Lamb wherever He goes. The opposite is the harlott which rides on the beast which is a Christian Church who is also the little horn in Daniel who keeps not the commandments of God and is full of blasphemy. In Bible, calling yourself God n forgiving sins in His place are those spoken of. Rome and her daughter's (plural)
  • Elias
    lately I have studding much revelation chapter 12, I want know the meaning of the enigma of the woman dressed with the sun
    with the moon under her feet.
