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

  • Steve
    In short, the purpose of this passage is for encouragement. The woman represents the group of believers; the dragon represents the pagan empire during Constantine's Christian conversion. This dragon is very same 4th beast in Daniel. Revelations describes Daniel's fourth beast in various phases until it develops into the Holy Roman Empire. This is God contrasting his kingdom to man's kingdom.
  • A disciple
    DON"T BE A FOOL! How many self-seeking false prophets have to make a fool of themselves and everyone who listens to them, before the words of our Lord are believed and obeyed? "No man knows the day nor the hour when the Son of Man returns; only the Father! The vision and the sign describes the true state of the world, and the reason for what things tale place. IT'S NOT to decrypt some hocus pocus!
  • Yarah Sakal
    Chapter 12 has parallel meanings but most importantly it is a sign. The sign is in the heavens and refers to the celestial alignment taking place on September 23, 2017. Many feel it is pointing to the Rapture because of the context of the vision. What is important is not if the Rapture happens at that point since we should always be ready for that amazing "twinkling of an eye".
  • John
    Looks to me like God cleaned house in Heaven and figured it's time for man to do the same under the pretense and directive of God to be the hands and feet to ensure Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven
  • BSP
    Verse 12 shows how angry Satan is that he has been thrown out of heaven. He has not given up in his fight to turn as many away as possible.
  • BSP
    In verse 7 we can see that Satan and his demons did not willingly leave heaven. There was a war that had to be fought and Jesus hurled Satan and the demons out of heaven.
