Significant Words and Comments:
Commentary on Revelation 11:15 (19 February 2008): “The seventh angel sounded,” and, as discussed in both Revelation 8:13 and 9:13, this angel is “Raguel, one of the holy angels, who takes vengeance on the world of the luminaries.” The third devastation, covered in Revelation 11:15-19, deals with Yehuveh’s final dealings with the luminaries. Raguel [H7467] means “friend of Elohim;” and (interchangeably with Reuel) was the name of Moses’ father-in-law, also of an Edomite and an Israelite. See Exodus 3:1; 18:1, 27; Numbers 10:29. Enoch XX:4.
“There were great voices in heaven, saying,” that is “there is great clarifications from Yehuveh’s wisdom and protection.” See notes on Revelation 4:1.
“The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Yehuveh,” finally! This is exactly what Yehuveh showed Daniel and Nebuchadnezzar in vision: “In the days of these kings shall the Elohim of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great Elohim hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.” This restoration of Yehuveh’s kingdom is one of the most widely discussed themes of Torah’s prophecies. Study the following passages to gain the whole picture: Psalms 22:27-28; 72:11; 86:9; 89:15-17; Isaiah 2:2-3; 49:6-7, 22-23; 55:5; 60:3-14; Jeremiah 16:19; Daniel 7:14, 18, 22, 27; Hosea 2:23; Amos 9:11-12; Micah 4:1-2; Zephaniah 3:9-10; Zechariah 2:11; 8:20-23; 14:9; Malachi 1:11; Revelation 12:10; 15:4; 17:14; 20:4. Daniel 2:44-45. Notice that, excepting Revelation, all Scriptures supporting the restoration of Yehuveh’s kingdom on earth are from Torah. This truth is not supported in the Christian literature of the New Testament, excepting for the book of Revelation, which predated the Christian era by several centuries. Consider Isaiah 8:20 here!
“Of His Christ,” that is, of His anointed. See Revelation 1:1.
“He shall reign,” see Yehuveh Will Reign over All the Earth [Section III: Article 3]. “For ever and ever,” for all time, as discussed in Revelation 5:13.
Commentary on Revelation 11:16 (21 February 2008): “The four and twenty elders, which sat before Elohim on their seats,” comprise the high advisory council of tribal leaders of restored Israel, as noted on Revelation 4:4 and 4:10.
“Fell upon their faces,” as discussed in notes at Revelation 9:7.
“Worshipped Elohim,” yield willing and humble service to Elohim, as in Revelation 4:10. “Exalt ye Yehuveh our Elohim, and worship at His footstool; for He is holy.” “Exalt Yehuveh our Elohim, and worship at His holy hill; for Yehuveh our Elohim is holy.” Psalms 99:5, 9.
