Wesley's Notes for Revelation 6:10


6:10 And they cried - This cry did not begin now, but under the first Roman persecution. The Romans themselves had already avenged the martyrs slain by the Jews on that whole nation. How long - They knew their blood would be avenged; but not immediately, as is now shown them. O Lord - The Greek word properly signifies the master of a family: it is therefore beautifully used by these, who are peculiarly of the household of God. Thou Holy One and true - Both the holiness and truth of God require him to execute judgment and vengeance. Dost thou not judge and avenge our blood? - There is no impure affection in heaven: therefore, this desire of theirs is pure and suitable to the will of God. The martyrs are concerned for the praise of their Master, of his holiness and truth: and the praise is given him, #Rev 19:2|, where the prayer of the martyrs is changed into a thanksgiving: Thou holy One and true: True and right are thy judgments. How long dost thou not judge and avenge our blood? He hath judged the great whore, and hath avenged the blood of his servants.

Discussion for Revelation 6

  • SeekVision
    The book of Revelations is an allegory: the 7 churches are the 7 energy centres and major glands of the body. The 33 years that Jesus Christ lived for correspondent to the 33 vertebrae that we each have in our spine. The 24 elders are the nerve ends that go from the thalamus in our brains to the stomach.

    seal 1 2 3 4 are already in full production; these seals = 1 and this 1 = many that (because it is the last days) are allowed to control by wars and food control /economic, also diseases (don't know where I catch this cold lol). Using their power (controlling modern-day conveniences where applicable ) they (though under GOD's control) are conquering house by house, nation by nation.

    yes satan does mock. Just like he uses idol "santa". You have heard the song about this gross idol.."he sees you when your sleeping, he knows when your awake...he knows if you've been bad or good, so be good for heavens sake". A counterfeit to an all knowing
  • Romans 14 KJV
    Why do you think the crown wearing rider of this white horse has a bow but no arrows?? How then will he go about conquering to conquer?? He will do it with "PEACE". What did Jesus say what will happen when they proclaim peace??. The rider here is indeed the "antiChrist". Remember Satan mocks flips everything God proclaims.. Always rightly divide and match scripture with scripture..
  • William R McCourtie
    I am not afraid because "I know whom I have believed (in Jesus) and am persuaded that He is able to Keep that which I have committed (my soul) unto Him against that day." KJV
    Knowing about Jesus and making Him Lord is different. In the last days there will be suffering and men will try and escape. They will do everything except repent because no one can do so unless drawn by the Holy Spirit.
