Wesley's Notes for Revelation 16:10


16:10 The four first phials are closely connected together; the fifth concerns the throne of the beast, the sixth the Mahometans, the seventh chiefly the heathens. The four first phials and the four first trumpets go round the whole earth; the three last phials and the three last trumpets go lengthways over the earth in a straight line. The fifth poured out his phial upon the throne of the wild beast - It is not said, on the beast and his throne. Perhaps the sea will then be vacant. And his kingdom was darkened - With a lasting, not a transient, darkness. However the beast as yet has his kingdom. Afterward the woman sits upon the beast. and then it is said, The wild beast is not, #Rev 17:3|,7,8.

Discussion for Revelation 16

  • A disciple
    Alex; Sentimental and wishful thinking is not how we understand and seek the things of God. Remember Peter's well wishing toward Jesus, and how he thought the talk about going to the cross was something to be rejected, like it was just "negative thinking?"The cross was the only way to save us from sin; so too it is only by utter destruction of fire that the wicked and all cause of sin be removed.
  • Alex
    Disciple there are too many scriptures that say this earth is gonna abide forever,seed tine and harvest forever, Davids saw this earth at REST and full of his Glory, Isaiah says Knowledge shall cover the earth as the waters cover the seas,but Jesus is very bold and says thy kingdom come thy will be done (right here on this earth)The ferverent heats is his baptism of fire, his lake of fire etc gb
  • A disciple
    In the Law of the LORD it is written, that the wicked shall be punished by the same evil that they thought to do to others; and so the first vial of wrath is for all their cruelties and poisoning the world. "..upon the men who had the character or stamp of the beast..ULCERS; injurious to health, having a bad odor, extremely serious or worrying in its effects, hard to bear, very severe, painful.."

    JOHN 6:68 then SIMON PETER answered him LORD to whom shall we go thou hast the words of eternal life ROMANS 11:19 thou wilt say then the branches were broken off that I might be graffed in --11:20-- well because of unbelief they were broken off and thou standest by faith be not highminded but fear --11:21-- for if GOD spared not the natural branches --- take heed lest he also spare not thee ---

    A child of the King need not fear the judgments foretold in the book of Holy Scripture. We are kept by His Blood!

    "And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand".-John 10:28

    Verse 12: This prophecy foretold that the "waters" of Babylon the Great would dry up. Many people would no longer support Babylon the Great or false religion.
