Bible Commentary for Revelation 10:11

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

  • Walter Wood on Revelation 10:11
    What two things do the seven churches in rev 2 and three have in common ?
  • Jennifer Harmon Segina on Revelation 10:11
    What ethnicity is Jesus
  • S Spencer - in Reply on Revelation 10:11
    Hi Jennifer.

    Jesus was Jewish.when he walked down here.


    John 4:22. Ye worship ye know not what: "WE" know what "WE" worship: for salvation is of the Jews.

  • Adam - in Reply on Revelation 10:11
    Jesus was a middle eastern Jew who walked a lot outside in the sun. Some groups WANT Jesus to be a different skin color though and work very hard to find verses that support their desired skin tone. I don't believe the motivations behind this are sound and I think if Jesus was here in front of us He would condemn that and question their motives. It's as if people are fighting over this trying to score points for their own 'team'. That's opposite of what Jesus taught. Galatians 3:28 God bless...
  • S Spencer - in Reply on Revelation 10:11
    Amen Adam.

    It's such a sad movement, and I agree a bad motive.
  • Pedro - in Reply on Revelation 10:11
    Jesus was a Hebrew. The 1st man to be called Hebrew was Abram (Genesis 14:13)

    Jesus was Semitic (Shem), with color and tone similar to their Arab cousins

    Today's Jews are Ashkenazi (Genesis 10:2-3) they are 7th century Khazar converts of Japheth. (Revelation 2:9)

    (Genesis 9:27) God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.

    Sounds like Canaan will be a slave to his two brothers (Isaiah 14:1-2)
  • Bro Barney - in Reply on Revelation 10:11
    Jesus IS Jewish. At the time of His presence on the earth, the average Jewish man in Israel could be described as having black hair, olive skin, and shorter than the average American today. He did not stand out of the crowd and would have been considered very common.

    Isa 53:2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

    Of course He looks different today.

    Rev 1:13-15 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.

    God bless
  • Brent on Revelation 10:11
    Amen. John is one of the two witnesses.
  • Judge Martin - in Reply on Revelation 10:11

    The two witnesses are the one hundred forty four thousand sealed from BOTH houses of Israel. They are briefly mentioned, clocked, hidden, and allegorized throughout the Bible, and showcased in Revelation:

    Revelation 5

    Revelation 7

    Revelation 11

    Revelation 12

    Revelation 14

    The two witnesses (one hundred forty four thousand) are the only representatives of God who are sealed for 42 months. They are the woman of Revelation 12, etc. Now that you know, double check it for reproof.
  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on Revelation 10:11
    Brother Brent, may CHRIST IN US grace us with His wisdom and His understanding

    From Genesis to Malachi we see all the prophecies of the coming CHRIST; the law and prophets are the two witnesses to this event. Daniel 12:11-12 foretell of the forty two month ministry of Christ; forty five days latter Pentecost.

    Revelation 10 is telling John that when he leaves his body of flesh and is become the LIKENESS OF CHRIST he will again prophecy to the nation having BECOME a Priest to HIS GOD.
