Wesley's Notes for Revelation 22:8


22:8 I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel - The very same words which occur, #Rev 19:10|. The reproof of the angel, likewise, See thou do it not, for I am thy fellowservant, is expressed in the very same terms as before. May it not be the very same incident which is here related again? Is not this far more probable, than that the apostle would commit a fault again, of which he had been so solemnly warned before?


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 22:8


Re 22:8,9 I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel. On these two verses, see PNT "Re 19:10". There John attempts to worship the angel and is prevented. Among the idolatrous tendencies that early showed themselves in the church was angel worship. This not only rebukes it, but the worship of any being, earthly or heavenly, who is not divine.
