Wesley's Notes for Revelation 11:14


11:14 The second woe is past - The butchery made by the Saracens ceased about the year 847, when their power was so broken by Charles the Great that they never recovered it. Behold, the third woe cometh quickly - Its prelude came while the Roman see took all opportunities of laying claim to its beloved universality, and enlarging its power and grandeur. And in the year 755 the bishop of Rome became a secular prince, by king Pepin's giving him the exarchate of Lombardy. The beginning of the third woe itself stands, #Rev 12:12|.


Discussion for Revelation 11

  • Dewey J
    A disciple no one can top Jesus in his direct quote that you just read in my post Jesus said what he meant and meant exactly what he said. We don't have the right to change that. Isa. 55:8,9 "For my thoughts are not your thoughts...Heb 11:5 Enoch walked with God...God took him his testimony he pleased God. Life finished scriptures didn't say he would return to earth. Daniel 12:1 is Michael to come
  • A disciple
    Dewey; Enoch and Elijah were taken alive into heaven; and so we must conclude that their work is NOT finished, and that God took them aside till He would use them again at another time. The Scriptures say that "Elijah must come first:" the Lord doesn't use the real to identify types, and then not bring forth the real and the complete. John came in the Spirit and power of Elijah not to replace him.

    A disciple, Ron, and Martha Jesus said concerning John Baptist Matt. 17:12 But I say unto you that Elias is come already and they knew him not but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them. Elijah and Enoch finished their course let them rest. 2 Tim. 4:7,8 This language place emphasis on the Holy Ghost that enabled all prophets, apostles success
  • A disciple
    Martha; I looked up "in the spirit of" and found this simple but helpful definition to answer your question; which then makes John as foreshadowing Elijah just ahead of the Lord's coming in its perfection at the end of this age. "There is the letter of the law and there is the spirit of the law. The letter of the law are the laws themselves; the spirit of the law is the principle behind the law."
  • A disciple
    Hi Martha, nice to hear from you. Well my thoughts about how John went before the Lord to prepare His way, was after the model set by Elijah; as it were a foreshadowing of the great Day of the LORD; when Elijah himself, with Enoch himself, shall come for fulfilling their great ministry in advance of the Second Coming Of Christ and the end of this age; in such power of the Spirit never before seen.
  • Martha
    a disciple...I believe the same concerning who the two witnesses but confused when the scriptures say John the Baptist came in the spirit of Elijah; Luke 1:17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. John did die.
