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

  • 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
  • Nell Lamb
    It is amazing. I learn more
  • I AM
    Behold, I know your thoughts, and the devices which ye wrongfully imagine against me. For now ye are nothing: ye see my casting down, and are afraid. The sinners in Zion are afraid: fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings? For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.
  • Philip Christian Parks
    This chapter appears parenthetical between the second and third woes to provide explanation for the judgments upon the earth. Many of these events, such as Christ's birth (vv. 2
  • Matt
    Satan will open his mouth and claim he is Christ. The flood symbolizes 'flood of lies'. True Christians will be going through the tribulation in Matt. ch. 24. Those who believe they will be raptured will be taken by the flood of lies: "one taken and the other left." The obedient servant waits for the REAL Christ at the 7th trump, which comes AFTER the antichrist's reign (6th trump) in 2nd Thess.
