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

  • Sarah
    Sabbathkeeperandwife, so happy to hear of your wife's healing. My mother has been diagnosed with cancer also, and is also paralyzed in her lower limbs. We are praying that God will do likewise for my mother. All prayers are greatly appreciated.
  • Mark Hardy
    St.Luke 34~36 pray to escape all these things
  • Ann
    Matthew 24:22, Mark 13:20, And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. This is why people will be here during the tribulation period, before the Day of Christ comes back. People need to REPENT of their sins, and believe with a true heart our Lord Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for our sins. Amen.
  • A disciple
    Barbara; there isn't any Scriptural support for the idea of a Rapture before the Lord's coming. And as far as all these things happening that no one regards or takes warning; this is where we must be patient and persevere. All these things are being sent by God; but the world won't acknowledge that, and call it natural or man made. The reason for the tribulation is that men would repent.
  • Bruce
    Barbara: No. That's what is happening now. It will get worse. Narrow is The Way, few there be that find it. Most churches have fallen away, they have grown cold,they're not preaching all Truth.We are in The Tribulation. The Great Tribulation is bitting are Our Heels.
  • Barbara
    The book of Revelation, are these things to happen after the rapture? I don't understand how sinners can be told what Satan has for them for eternity-Hell-and still they follow Satan.
    Praise the Lord Jesus Christ for loving us like HE does!!
