Wesley's Notes for Revelation 1:10


1:10 I was in the Spirit - That is, in a trance, a prophetic vision; so overwhelmed with the power, and filled with the light, of the Holy Spirit, as to be insensible of outward things, and wholly taken up with spiritual and divine. What follows is one single, connected vision, which St. John saw in one day; and therefore he that would understand it should carry his thought straight on through the whole, without interruption. The other prophetic books are collections of distinct prophecies, given upon various occasions: but here is one single treatise, whereof all the parts exactly depend on each other. Chapter iv. 1 #Rev 4:1 is connected with chapter i|. 19; #Rev 1:19 and what is delivered in the fourth chapter goes| on directly to the twenty - second. On the Lord's day - On this our Lord rose from the dead: on this the ancients believed he will come to judgment. It was, therefore, with the utmost propriety that St. John on this day both saw and described his coming. And I heard behind me - St. John had his face to the east: our Lord, likewise, in this appearance looked eastward toward Asia, whither the apostle was to write. A great voice, as of a trumpet - Which was peculiarly proper to proclaim the coming of the great King, and his victory over all his enemies.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 1:10


Re 1:10 I was in the Spirit. Was lifted to that spiritual exaltation in which revelations are given. On the Lord's day. The day of the Lord's Resurrection, the first day of the week. In the earlier apostolic writings the day was called "the first day of the week" (Ac 20:7 1Co 16:2), but by the close of the century it began to be called "the Lord's day", as here. Epistles of Barnabas, Ignatius and Dionysius, written near this time, so style it, and the name is of common occurrence from this time onward, and is confined to Sunday. It is not confounded with the "Sabbath day" of many centuries. See Dr. Wm. Smith's Unabridged Dictionary of the Bible, article "Lord's Day". Heard behind me a great voice. Heard but did not see the speaker.

Discussion for Revelation 1

  • Redeemed
    No one can call Jesus the Lord (the one Lord of Deut 6:4) but by the Holy Ghost that's why the book starts out I John was in the spirit on the Lords day when he was given the revealing of Jesus Christ the one Lord that sat on the throne. Paul who was a Jew was given this revelation after thinking he knew God and was doing him service but when he heard the voice he said who are you Lord? I am Jesus
  • Redeemed
    All this points to the one Lord, who sat upon the throne who lived and died and behold is alive forevermore the Alpha and Omega the one that's feet were as fine brass as if burned in a furnace which is the Son of God that was the fourth man walking in the fiery furnace. Great is the mystery of the God that never changes and is the same yesterday today and forever, My Lord and my God Jesus Christ.
  • Word
    The test is simple if you love the Lord with all your heart. Oh, He can know! Now Satan comes at the 6th seal, 6th trump and the 6th vial. Satan comes to deceive the whole world in a deception of being Christ return so wait for the true Christ at the 7th trump. If your in the flesh and they say Christ is here you know it's not true an the true Christ does not come in peace but war. Wait for Christ
  • Word
    First resurrection is after the 1st tribulation when we have past the test and all of God's children will go through the test then we will all be changed in spiritual bodies those that remain on earth to meet the Lord an our relatives that come at the 7th trump, if you have waited for the True Christ you have nothing to fear of the wrath of God that happens at the 7th trump when vials are poured.
  • Bruce
    ray: Blessed and Holy is he that part in the First Resurrection: Revelation20:6 The rest of the dead lived not again until a 1000 Yrs were Finished. V:5. FOOD FOR THOUGHT. After The Rapture there is no hope. Only by The Blood of The Lord is there Salvation/Called: John 6:44/ Ask Forgiveness. You will be Baptized with The Holy Ghost:Matthew3:11 / Changed 2 Corinthians5:17 :You will Know!
  • Word 76
    Ray321 could you direct me in scriptures that speak of the rapture. I can only fine Ezekiel 13 where it speaks of preachers who will make up divine thoughts out of their own minds teaching Gods children a salvation of fly away that God hates. Then I went to 1 Thessalonians 4 and the subject starts at vs13 where are the dead and it says they are with Christ and will return with Him at the 7th trump
