    VERSE (4) -
    Re 1:11; 2:1-3:22 Isa 8:1 Hab 2:2,3

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:4

    Y cuando los siete truenos hubieron hablado sus voces, yo iba a escribir, y oí una voz del cielo, que me decía: Sella las cosas que los siete truenos han hablado, y no las escribas.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 4. And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices , etc.] Or declared all they had to denounce upon the
    enemies of Christ and his church: I was about to write ; John taking particular notice of what they said, and believing it might be for the advantage, comfort, and support of the church of Christ under its suffering circumstances, to be informed of what God had in reserve among the treasures of his wrath for their adversaries, was going to put it down in writing, that he might retain it, and the better communicate it, and in obedience to the order given him, ( Revelation 1:19); and I heard a voice from heaven ; from God the Father, for the Son of God in a visionary way was come down from heaven, in the form before described; and this voice answers to the Bath Kol of the Jews, and is the same which ordered John to write, ( Revelation 14:13), though it here forbad him: saying unto me, seal up those things ; treasure them up in thy mind, keep them within thy breast, hide them from men, for the present, and say nothing of them: which the seven thunders have uttered, and write them not ; that they may not be seen and read at present, because the same things were to be exhibited in another form, and at another time, under the seven vials; only it was thought proper that John should have some intimations of them for his own advantage, and to prepare him for the following vision, for the eating of the book, and for his prophesying before people, nations, tongues, and kings. Mr. Daubuz is of opinion, that by these seven thunders are meant seven kingdoms which have received the Reformation, and established it by law within their several dominions, whereby the doctrine and worship of the reformers are become the established religion there; and the laws by which it is established are the voices uttered by those supreme authorities; and they are these, 1. The German princes, making one republic. 2. The Swiss cantons. 3. Sweden. 4. Denmark, with Norway. 5. England and Ireland. 6. Scotland. 7. The United Provinces of the Netherlands.

    And whereas John, who represents the first reformers, and other faithful men, was for writing what these thunders uttered, this denotes the zeal and earnest desires of these good men to push the Reformation further, and make a thorough work of it, as well as their expectation that now was the time in which the mystery of God was to be fulfilled, in which they were mistaken; wherefore John is bid to seal up these things, and not write them, which shows that the progress of the Reformation was to be stopped from doing fully what the first reformers were prompted to by the supreme powers which encouraged them, and that by the opposition of other temporal princes; it not being the will of God that the glorious state of the church should arise from these thunders, and be built on their laws and establishments; and suggests, that this is not the time in which, nor these the ways and means by which the mystery of God will be finished, which will not be until the seventh angel has sounded his trumpet, ( Revelation 10:7); whereas this period of time, to which the Reformation belongs, is an event of the sixth trumpet: and this exposition bids very fair to be the right one.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-7 - The apostle saw another representation. The person communicating thi discovery probably was our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, or it was to show his glory. He veils his glory, which is too great for mortal eye to behold; and throws a veil upon his dispensations. A rainbow was upo his head; our Lord is always mindful of his covenant. His awful voic was echoed by seven thunders; solemn and terrible ways of discoverin the mind of God. We know not the subjects of the seven thunders, no the reasons for suppressing them. There are great events in history perhaps relating to the Christian church, which are not noticed in ope prophecy. The final salvation of the righteous, and the final succes of true religion on earth, are engaged for by the unfailing word of the Lord. Though the time may not be yet, it cannot be far distant. Ver soon, as to us, time will be no more; but if we are believers, a happ eternity will follow: we shall from heaven behold and rejoice in the triumphs of Christ, and his cause on earth.
