Wesley's Notes for Revelation 11:7


11:7 And when they shall have finished their testimony - Till then they are invincible. The wild beast - Hereafter to be described. That ascendeth - First out of the sea, #Rev 13:1|, and then out of the bottomless pit, #Rev 17:8|. Shall make war with them - It is at his last ascent, not out of the sea, but the bottomless pit, that the beast makes war upon the two witnesses. And even hereby is fixed the time of treading the holy city, and of the two witnesses. That time ends after the ascent of the beast out of the abyss, and yet before the fulfilling of the mystery. And shall conquer them - The fire no longer proceeding out of their mouth when they have finished their work. And kill them - These will be among the last martyrs, though not the last of all.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 11:7


Re 11:7 When they shall have finished their testimony. The thought is, "When they shall have made their testimony complete". The beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit. The coming up of the beast out of the abyss is named here, in Re 13:1 17:3. The powers that come from the abyss are satanic. Compare Re 9:2 9:11. The beast, therefore, represents some devilish power or influence. The Greek word "therion", rendered "beast" here, in Re 13:1 17:3 denotes a savage wild beast of prey. The beast from the abyss should be distinguished from "the beast coming up out of the sea" (Re 13:1), and from "the beast coming up out of the earth" (Re 13:11). They are all malign powers, but the power of evil manifested in different forms. Shall . . . kill them. Whatever the beast represents, that power shall assail the witnesses, and shall slay them for a time.

Discussion for Revelation 11:7

  • Tanaka Whande for verse 7
    I have just realised, the beast doesn 't come out of the womb of a woman, as in, he isn 't a normal person. The antichrist, the beast, the son of perdition came from the bottomless pit. Also look at Revelation 17 8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. To conclude, I don 't think that the beast is just a normal person. I mean, look at other things that come out of the bottomless pit Revelation 9 2 3 2 And he opened the bottomless pit and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. 3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. The beast is something else. I hope that helps someone.
