Wesley's Notes for Revelation 12:10


12:10 Now is come - Hence it is evident that all this chapter belongs to the trumpet of the seventh angel. In the eleventh chapter, from the fifteenth to the eighteenth verse, are proposed the contents of this extensive trumpet; the execution of which is copiously described in this and the following chapters. The salvation - Of the saints. The might - Whereby the enemy is cast out. The kingdom - Here the majesty of God is shown. And the power of his Christ - Which he will exert against the beast; and when he also is taken away, then will the kingdom be ascribed to Christ himself, #Rev 19:16|; 20:4. The accuser of our brethren - So long as they remained on earth. This great voice, therefore, was the voice of men only. Who accused them before our God day and night - Amazing malice of Satan, and patience of God!


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 12:10


Re 12:10 Now is come salvation, etc. We have next the songs of triumph sung in heaven. These songs of triumph are always heard when the symbolism portrays any great triumph of righteousness. See Re 7:12 11:15. The triumphant songs here seem to exult over the overthrow of Paganism in the fourth century.

Discussion for Revelation 12

  • Karl
    to Diriba, you're not alone in trying to understand Revelation, When JESUS spoke to his disciples, it was in parables. The imagery of these passages are, I believe, such a parable. The dragon, satan and his forces, manifested and opposing the LORD and his. The war in heaven mirrored on earth, the same war on earth an echo of that heavenly battle. Take strength in that, hope that helps? - karl

    What is the meaning of dragon?
  • Nell Lamb
    This chapter would cause a lot of people to repent and seek salvation if the could imagine the agony of being forever lost. Having God turn his face from us eternally makes everything else pale in comparison.
  • Word
    fact that scripture tells us that Satan as antichrist comes to deceive the whole world which means there is a deception. Now an actor deceives people playing a role of another person but that's all in fun to entertain people. Now a man with battle gear on, or dragon spitting fire to kill, steal, destroy coming to kill all man of flesh doesn't need to deceive anyone.Men of war don't have to deceive
