    SEV Biblia, Chapter 19:17

    Y vi un ngel que estaba dentro del sol, y clam con gran voz, diciendo a todas las aves que volaban por medio del cielo: Venid, y congregaos a la cena del gran Dios,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 19:17

    Verse 17. An
    angel standing in the sun] Exceedingly luminous; every part of him emitting rays of light. From this representation, Milton has taken his description of Uriel, the angel of the sun. Paradise Lost, b. iii. l.

    6xlviii. - "The Archangel Uriel, one of the seven Who, in God's presence, nearest to his throne Stands ready at command and are his eyes That run through all the heavens, or down to the earth Bears his swift errands over moist and dry, Over sea and land." All the fowls that fly] The carcasses of God's enemies shall be food for all the fowls of heaven. This is according to a Jewish tradition, Synopsis Sohar, p. 114, n. 25: "In the time when God shall execute vengeance for the people of Israel, he shall feed all the beasts of the earth for twelve months with their flesh and all the fowls for seven years." It is well known that both beasts and birds of prey are accustomed to frequent fields of battle, and live upon the slain.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 17. And I saw an angel standing in the sun , etc.] By whom is meant, not the angel of the fourth vial, who poured it on the sun, taken in another sense than here, and therefore could not stand in it; nor the archangel with the last trumpet, for as yet the dead rise not, nor does the judgment come on; nor one of the ministering spirits; nor Christ himself, for he is the great God, to whose supper this angel invites, but a minister of the Gospel; or rather a set of Gospel ministers, such as in ( Revelation 14:1-6) who may be said to stand in the sun, in like manner as the woman, the church, was seen clothed with it, ( Revelation 12:1) and may denote the conspicuousness of Gospel preachers; for, as the church now will be established upon the top of the mountains, so her teachers shall not be removed into corners any more, but her eyes shall behold her teachers; and also the clear sight they shall have of the doctrines and mysteries of the Gospel, who shall now see eye to eye; and particularly the further breakings forth of the glory of the latter day, and the ensuing victory of Christ over all his enemies; and also shows the great strength of their sight, who, far from being like moles and bats, will be able both to look upon the sun, and to stand in it: and it may likewise signify the glory and majesty of Christ's kingdom; the comfortable influence of him, the sun of righteousness, who will now arise upon his people with healing in his wings; and the steadfastness of Christ's ministers to him, and his pure Gospel, and the glorious truths of it. And he cried with a loud voice ; that he might be heard far and near, having something of moment and importance to publish: saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven ; meaning not the barbarous nations, the Goths, and Vandals, and Saracens, which overrun and destroyed the western and eastern empires; these times are too late for them, they rose up under the six first trumpets; nor devils and unclean spirits, which will prey upon and torment antichrist, and his followers, in hell; nor military and avaricious men among Protestants, but Christian princes, and their people, are designed; they are such as are in heaven, the church, and of note there, who will share the spoils of the antichristian people, and possess their kingdoms, substance, and estates: these are invited by the angel, saying, come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God .

    The Alexandrian copy, the Vulgate Latin, and Syriac versions, read, to the great supper of God; and so the Complutensian edition; not the Lord's supper, where not the flesh of men, but the flesh of Christ is eat, by faith; nor the marriage supper of the Lamb, which will be of another kind than this; nor is any spiritual repast intended, such as living by faith on Christ, and supping with him, being entertained with his promises, presence, and the discoveries of his love; but the slaughter of Christ's enemies, and his victory over them, which is his sacrifice; and these are the guests he bids, (see Zephaniah 1:7) and whom he calls to share in the conquest and spoils, and to express their joy on this occasion: the great God is no other than Christ, the general of the armies in heaven, called before the Word of God, and King of kings, and Lord of lords; who will gain this victory, and will be known to be the great God by the judgment he will execute. This is a proof of our Lord's divinity; (see Titus 2:13).


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 11-21 - Christ, the glorious Head of the church, is described as on a whit horse, the emblem of justice and holiness. He has many crowns, for he is King of kings, and Lord of lords. He is arrayed in a vesture dippe in his own blood, by which he purchased his power as Mediator; and in the blood of his enemies, over whom he always prevails. His name i "The Word of God;" a name none fully knows but himself; only this we know, that this Word was God manifest in the flesh; but his perfection cannot be fully understood by any creature. Angels and saints follow and are like Christ in their armour of purity and righteousness. The threatenings of the written word he is going to execute on his enemies The ensigns of his authority are his name; asserting his authority an power, warning the most powerful princes to submit, or they must fal before him. The powers of earth and hell make their utmost effort These verses declare important events, foretold by the prophets. Thes persons were not excused because they did what their leaders bade them How vain will be the plea of many sinners at the great day! We followe our guides; we did as we saw others do! God has given a rule to wal by, in his word; neither the example of the most, nor of the chief must influence us contrary thereto: if we do as the most do, we must go where the most go, even into the burning lake __________________________________________________________________
