Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Revelation 11:6


11:6 These have power - And they use that power. See verse 10. #Rev 11:10| To shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophesying - During those twelve hundred and sixty days. And have power over the waters - In and near Jerusalem. To turn them into blood - As Moses did those in Egypt. And to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will - This is not said of Moses or Elijah, or any mere man besides. And how is it possible to understand this otherwise than of two individual persons?


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 11:6


Re 11:6 These have power, etc. In seeking for the two witnesses we must find agencies which can save life and can destroy it, can shut the heavens and open them, can prevent blessings from descending upon the earth, can inflict curses and plagues on the inhabitants of the earth. The witnesses have supernatural powers.

Discussion for Revelation 11

  • Word
    No one is dead for a thousand years. As far as the new Strong's it's like the N.I.V Bible which isn't a Bible. So for anyone who wants to read the true word of God and learn the scriptures it's best to have an Old Exhaustive Strong's Concordance before 1972 so that a person gets the true meaning of the words from the scriptures than to believe the Romans are coming, the Romans are coming.
  • SabbathkeeperandWife
    Pt 2 - because SO many are swallowed up in the rapture theory that most people think that if they miss the first train, then they can catch the second and therefore they can live anyway they choose which would make EVERYONE who died before this rapture unavailable for the second chance. It's not biblical. One vs about a silver cord that's not understood vs 50 that say AT LAST DAY aren't good odds
  • SabbathkeeperandWife
    Even children are smart enough to look in a concordance. There's one online. Pneuma is air. Not clouds. ALL WILL HEAR HIS VOICE. In the twinkling of an eye is how long it takes those who make the cut to be transformed into their spiritual bodies. The rest just DIE until the 1000 yrs is up, then they are judged. Great supper of God is when the fowls feast in their carcasses. There's no 2nd chance!
  • Word
    The fallen won't even know that they are in the apostacy and they will tell the elect they are a widow no longer and that their husband has came home. But the elect do not care about their false messiah and his power to bring lightning down To earth at his will. The elect will be delivered up by those believers and to death which is Satan and the Holy Spirit will speak through them.

    Martha:"WE"The Church are still here.What's heartbreaking Matthew7:14 narrow is the way-- few there be that find it. 15:beware of false prophets 16:Ye shall know them--. There are some on these sites,in the church: trying to put out our Light. We are The only Light our "Family" will see others! Stay trimmed,keep The Oil Full. Mark 13:13 ye shall be hated-- endure unto the end--. Well done!
