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.

Re 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb. This shows how the victory indicated in Re 12:8 was won. It was won by the blood of Christ and the faithfulness of the saints. They loved not their lives even to the death. They were willing to give their lives for Christ.

Discussion for Revelation 12

  • 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

    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.
  • Eliiah the Prophet
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life::::::::For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through him might be saved.
