Wesley's Notes for Revelation 10:11


10:11 Thou must prophesy again - Of the mystery of God; of which the ancient prophets had prophesied before. And he did prophesy, by measuring the temple, #Rev 11:1|; as a prophecy may be delivered either by words or actions. Concerning people, and nations, and tongues, and many kings - The people, nations, and tongues are contemporary; but the kings, being many, succeed one another. These kings are not mentioned for their own sake, but with a view to the holy city, #Rev 11:2|. Here is a reference to the great kingdoms in Spain, England, Italy, &c., which arose from the eighth century; or at least underwent a considerable change, as France and Germany in particular; to the Christian, afterward Turkish, empire in the east; and especially to the various potentates, who have successively reigned at or over Jerusalem, and do now, at least titularly, reign over it.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 10:11


Re 10:11 Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings. There is portrayed last another consequence of eating the book. To prophesy is not only to foretell future events, but to declare the message of God. This message had been declared once by the apostles, both in person, and by those who preached their words. Apostolic preaching had almost ceased for many ages before the Reformation. John, the representative of the apostolic body, commanded to prophesy, implies a revival of apostolic preaching among all people and nations.

Discussion for Revelation 10

    Ron, I believe you are right. However, concerning the name of the book The Revelation of Jesus Christ given to St. John to write gives all of us human being the whole story of God's divine plan from chapter 1 through 22. This book of Revelation gives us more than enough knowledge to get to paradise. What a blessing glory be to God in the highest. Amen!
  • A disciple
    God went through great pains, and many, many holy men sacrificed everything, to bring us the whole Bible as we have it today: it must mean that He has A LOT to say to us, when we are able to bear it. I don't think that God wants any of us to not use our brains, and the capacities of moral and intellectual knowledge; that's part of what we are in His image. But some things we must wait for.

    Verse 4 - the seven thunders. A lot of people keep trying to figure out what they said but per verse 7 no one will know until the time. The Prophets knew the basics but John died being the only living person knowing the Complete mystery of God, completed! Do I have this right? What are your thoughts?
  • A disciple
    "And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth, and cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roars: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices." From the coast of Israel the Angel's back is to the north: (Jeremiah 1:14) "Out of the north an evil shall break forth upon all the inhabitants of the land." The Chronicle.

    The little book is knowledge of the future, sweet because all want to know what will happen before it does. Once eaten, read and understood, it makes one sick. The end of days war is bitter because of the massive amount of radiation that travels the globe destroying DNA in all life forms. The war will cause a collapse of the ecology of earth. God warns us in advance in parables and symbolism.
