Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 15:4

_ _ Who shall notGreek, “Who is there but must fear Thee?” Compare Moses’ song, Exodus 15:14-16, on the fear which God’s judgments strike into the foe.

_ _ thee — so Syriac. But A, B, C, Vulgate, and Cyprian reject “thee.”

_ _ all nations shall come — alluding to Psalms 22:27-31; compare Isaiah 66:23; Jeremiah 16:19. The conversion of all nations, therefore, shall be when Christ shall come, and not till then; and the first moving cause will be Christ’s manifested judgments preparing all hearts for receiving Christ’s mercy. He shall effect by His presence what we have in vain tried to effect in His absence. The present preaching of the Gospel is gathering out the elect remnant; meanwhile “the mystery of iniquity” is at work, and will at last come to its crisis; then shall judgment descend on the apostates at the harvest-end of this age (Greek, Matthew 13:39, Matthew 13:40) when the tares shall be cleared out of the earth, which thenceforward becomes Messiah’s kingdom. The confederacy of ‘the apostates against Christ becomes, when overthrown with fearful judgments, the very means in God’s overruling providence of preparing the nations not joined in the Antichristian league to submit themselves to Him.

_ _ judgmentsGreek, “righteousnesses.”

_ _ are — literally, “were”: the prophetical past for the immediate future.
