Bible commentary

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

  • 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!
