Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 11:17

_ _ thanks — for the answer to our prayers (Revelation 6:10, Revelation 6:11) in destroying them which destroy the earth (Revelation 11:18), thereby preparing the way for setting up the kingdom of Thyself and Thy saints.

_ _ and art to come — omitted in A, B, C, Vulgate, Syriac, Cyprian, and Andreas. The consummation having actually come, they do not address Him as they did when it was still future, “Thou that art to come.” Compare Revelation 11:18, “is come.” From the sounding of the seventh trumpet He is to His people JAH, the ever present Lord, WHO IS, more peculiarly than Jehovah “who is, was, and is to come.

_ _ taken to thee thy great power — “to Thee” is not in the Greek. Christ takes to Him the kingdom as His own of right.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 11:14-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 11:17

The Almighty — He who hath all things in his power as the only Governor of them. Who is, and who was — God is frequently styled, "He who is, and who was, and who is to come." but now he is actually come, the words, "who is to come," are, as it were, swallowed up. When it is said, We thank thee that thou hast taken thy great power, it is all one as, "We thank thee that thou art come." This whole thanksgiving is partly an enlargement on the two great points mentioned in Revelation 11:15; partly a summary of what is hereafter more distinctly related. Here it is mentioned, how the kingdom is the Lord's; afterwards, how it is the kingdom of his Christ. Thou hast taken thy great power — This is the beginning of what is done under the trumpet of the seventh angel. God has never ceased to use his power; but he has suffered his enemies to oppose it, which he will now suffer no more.
