Wesley's Notes for Revelation 5:11


5:11 And I saw - The many angels. And heard - The voice and the number of them. Round about the elders - So forming the third circle. It is remarkable, that men are represented through this whole vision as nearer to God than any of the angels. And the number of them was - At least two hundred millions, and two millions over. And yet these were but a part of the holy angels. Afterward, #Rev 7:11|, St. John heard them all.

    Because God so loved the world, and because there was no man worthy to come and take the sacred scroll from His hand; God Himself provided us a Man, through whom He could make reconciliation, and so also open our understanding to understand the matters that He undertakes with man. In the little scroll are the things done, and those determined for the conclusion of this matter of the present age.
