Wesley's Notes for Revelation 10:6


10:6 And sware - The six preceding trumpets pass without any such solemnity. It is the trumpet of the seventh angel alone which is confirmed by so high an oath. By him that liveth for ever and ever - Before whom a thousand years are but a day. Who created the heaven, the earth, the sea, and the things that are therein - And, consequently, has the sovereign power over all: therefore, all his enemies, though they rage a while in heaven, on the sea, and on the earth, yet must give place to him. That there shall be no more a time - But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, the mystery of God shall be fulfilled: that is, a time, a chronos, shall not expire before that mystery is fulfilled. A chronos (1111 years) will nearly pass before then, but not quite. The period, then, which we may term a non - chronos (not a whole time) must be a little, and not much, shorter than this. The non - chronos here mentioned seems to begin in the year 800, (when Charles the Great instituted in the west a new line of emperors, or of many kings,) to end in the year 1836; and to contain, among other things, the short time of the third woe, the three times and a half of the woman in the wilderness, and the duration of the beast.


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!!
