Bible Commentary for Revelation 12:11

Wesley's Notes for Revelation 12:11


12:11 And they have overcome him - Carried the cause against him. By the blood of the Lamb - Which cleanses the soul from all sin, and so leaves no room for accusing. And by the word of their testimony - The word of God, which they believed and testified, even unto death. So, for instance, died Olam, king of Sweden, in the year 900, whom his own subjects would have compelled to idolatry; and, upon his refusal, slew as a sacrifice to the idol which he would not worship. So did multitudes of Bohemian Christians, in the year 916, when queen Drahomire raised a severe persecution, wherein many loved not their lives unto the death.

Discussion for Revelation 12:11

  • Obbie Beal on Revelation 12:11
    17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

    Note: verse 17 is another WARNING form GOD to a specific group. In 17 Jehovah /GOD assures this group that the dragon has declared war against them /those which keep the Commandments of God and have the Testimony of Jesus Christ, therefore one must ensure he or she has applied the WORD of GOD as prescribed, example see John 3:16-21. Being in this specific group give one access to the WHOLE ARMOUR of GOD each day of our earthly life thereby we can stand by the STRENGTH of GOD in our daily battles.

    The power of God to us in the shed blood of Christ. We acknowledge His sacrifice and receive His gift of eternal life. Our confessed belief in JESUS and our redeemed life is a testimony to others.
  • Troy Allen on Revelation 12:11
    We the true believers in Christ Jesus, the Son of God, are made new creatures and have overcome satan by our testimonies. We must not return to our old ways, because if we do, we will die spiritually and lose our freely given salvation. It is highly important to cling to our deliverance and not turn back into a life of sin. Because sin is death to those that have overcome.To love the things of the flesh and not live in obedience to the words of Christ Jesus is death.
  • Doris on Revelation 12:11

    The other key to this verse they did not love their lives even unto death is the true faith that has been tested in fire which I battle with every day laying down my life for his will not mine You 're brother in Christ Michael
  • Benjamin Gonzales on Revelation 12:11
    Powerful passage for sure!! God has shown me that most understand the blood of the Lamb, but leave out the power of the testimony?? We at best get up and give a good sermon, yet the alters remain barren?? Would love to have at least on person be allowed more than 2 minutes to share how God has transformed their lives. Chances are someone if not many will recieve hope from this!! 1 Peter 3 15 Respectfully yours, Benjamin Gonzales
