Bible Commentary for Revelation 5:13

Wesley's Notes for Revelation 5:13


5:13 And every creature - In the whole universe, good or bad. In the heaven, on the earth, under the earth, on the sea - With these four regions of the world, agrees the fourfold word of praise. What is in heaven, says blessing; what is on earth, honour; what is under the earth, glory: what is on the sea, strength; is unto him. This praise from all creatures begins before the opening of the first seal; but it continues from that time to eternity, according to the capacity of each. His enemies must acknowledge his glory; but those in heaven say, Blessed be God and the Lamb. This royal manifesto is, as it were, a proclamation, showing how Christ fulfils all things, and every knee bows to him, not only on earth, but also in heaven, and under the earth. This book exhausts all things, #1Cor 15:27|,28, and is suitable to an heart enlarged as the sand of the sea. It inspires the attentive and intelligent reader with such a magnanimity, that he accounts nothing in this world great; no, not the whole frame of visible nature, compared to the immense greatness of what he is here called to behold, yea, and in part, to inherit. St. John has in view, through the whole following vision, what he has been now describing, namely, the four living creatures, the elders, the angels, and all creatures, looking together at the opening of the seven seals.

    What do you think about these locust stories? Is it a plague?

    Jun 12, 2020

    What happens when locusts swarm?

    Locusts continue to reproduce quickly while swarming. They will consume all the food in any given area and then migrate to seek another food source. locusts can travel over one hundred kilometers in a day, meaning they can cover a lot of area.

    "Locusts do not honor political boundaries and can easily invade other adjacent countries," he said.

    The locusts move with the wind currents and can go back and forth between different areas. He said the current swarms moved throughout Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia, and then moved up through Saudi Arabia and Yemen to Iran, Pakistan and India.

    Exodus 10:15 - For they covered the face of the whole earth, so that the land was darkened; and they did eat every herb of the land, and all the fruit of the trees which the hail had left: and there remained not any green thing in the trees, or in the herbs of the field, through all the land of Egypt.

    Comment: I think it would be a very good thing to pray and ask God to spare USA from anything like this happening here.

    I've been kinda concerned since I read a story recently about a million pounds of pork smuggled here, from China. President Trump stopped all shipments of meat from China; last year I think. The meat is contaminated with swine flu. We were buying their cheaper meat; and the Chinese were paying more money to buy our uninfected meat. This was written a month or so ago. I'm giving up BLT's :/ Hope Joe Biden will continue the sanctions?

    I was curious if other kinds of plagues were going on besides COVID-19 you know?

    Let's all get really serious about praying over our meals ok? "Bless and sanctify these gifts and make it clean to eat".

    I care about you guys and gals. We have to lean into Jesus now.

    Get your flu shot. It has the H1N1-2 strain that fights swine flu.

    Love You, Mishael
  • Gordon Voysey - in Reply on Revelation 5:13
    In reply to Mishael I agree almost entirely with his arguements but I would add a caviat. I submit that the deep seated reason why the West (I particularly refer to the US and UK) have stumbled and unwitingly "engineered" their way into possibly becoming servile virtual vassel states to a burgeoning Chinese giant. China undoughtedly wishes to become the world master with its Godless religion and satanic ideology. The West must return to its root trust in the things of God and in doing so help itself by rejecting the headstrong desire of always trying to purchase the cheapest goods from abroad, predominently China, and begin to make its own goods even though initially it will cost us more. Be sure that if we allow China to master us prices of goods will rise exponentially. We will be heading for a new Dark Age as seen in the 1930's, lose our pride as once great Democratic caring countries and sink into an abbys of Godless theology. This has more than a close resemblance to Churchill's stirring speech in 1940 which inspired a nation to positive action and turn to the Lord for salvation. Surely we must do it again and very soon.
  • Francis on Revelation 5:13
    Is it ok to forgive but it's hard to not forget ,example if your husband cursed you out in such a vulgar manner and so vowel to the lowest and it has been repeated
  • T. Levis - in Reply on Revelation 5:13
    Francis, I'm going to pray for you. I don't want to falsely judge this situation by the few words you've stated. If you need help, please reach out to others, if this is regarding you & it's on going.
  • Gordon Voysey on Revelation 5:13
    There is a sence, I feel, in not looking too intensly into the mystique of this amazing verse. Our wonder into something so unutterably beyond our puny imaginings can not even scratch the surfaces of such wondrous eclipsings of God's phenomenal plan for the world and the universe. See what over-embellished language I have had to conjure to begin to explain my tiny thinking on the subject. We surely have to capitulate our arguments entirely and throw ourselves into praise and worship of our great Maker and Redeemer.
  • Richard Ober on Revelation 5:13
    Under what extraordinary circumstances do the demons, fallen angels, and lost souls in Hades ascribe blessing and honor and majesty (glory, splendor) and power (might and dominion) forever and ever (through the eternities of the eternities)to someone they have cursed and rejected? I can understand how they will bow the knee but not what's described here.
