Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Revelation 10:2


10:2 And he had in his hand - His left hand: he swore with his right. He stood with his right foot on the sea, toward the west; his left, on the land, toward the east: so that he looked southward. And so St. John (as Patmos lies near Asia) could conveniently take the book out of his left hand. This sealed book was first in the right hand of him that sat on the throne: thence the Lamb took it, and opened the seals. And now this little book, containing the remainder of the other, is given opened, as it was, to St. John. From this place the Revelation speaks more clearly and less figuratively than before. And he set his right foot upon the sea - Out of which the first beast was to come. And his left foot upon the earth - Out of which was to come the second. The sea may betoken Europe; the earth, Asia; the chief theatres of these great things.


Discussion for Revelation 10

  • Richard
    well it would appear we have an answer as to who one of the two witnesses will be, John must prophesy again before many!
  • Gary Olsen
    He has prophesied before many peoples, nations, tongues, and kings. The Word of God is not for a long ago time and place. It has lived and spoken to us down through the ages.
  • Bob
    Revelation chapter 10,verse 11. How can John prophesy in this verse if he is in prison?
  • Marvin Mobley
    I thank God for every day whether I thank it is good or bad , think Revelation shouid bring a person closer To God. I try to understand that every one have to know God in their hearts for their self to know God is to love God.






  • Juda
    I hate to burst your bubble, but The Most High does not love everyone! Read Romans 9:13
  • A disciple
    Ronald; I hope you don't mind me jumping in here. I agree with you! A few examples: The fourth and final kingdom would be hard and cruel as iron, but mixed with the miry clay; that's the world right now! Jesus told the Jews, "I came in my Father's name and you receive me not; another shall come in his own name and him you will receive." even him whom they WILL NOT GIVE THE HONOR OF THE KINGDOM!
