Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 22:10

_ _ Seal not — But in Daniel 12:4, Daniel 12:9 (compare Daniel 8:26), the command is, “Seal the book,” for the vision shall be “for many days.” The fulfillment of Daniel’s prophecy was distant, that of John’s prophecy is near. The New Testament is the time of the end and fulfillment. The Gentile Church, for which John wrote his Revelation, needs more to be impressed with the shortness of the period, as it is inclined, owing to its Gentile origin, to conform to the world and forget the coming of the Lord. The Revelation points, on the one hand, to Christ’s coming as distant, for it shows the succession of the seven seals, trumpets, and vials; on the other hand, it proclaims, “Behold, I come quickly.” So Christ marked many events as about to intervene before His coming, and yet He also says “Behold, I come quickly,” because our right attitude is that of continual prayerful watching for His coming (Matthew 25:6, Matthew 25:13, Matthew 25:19; Mark 13:32-37 [Auberlen]; compare Revelation 1:3).

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Revelation 22:10

(3) And he saith unto me, (4) Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.

(3) The angel returns to his former speech: in which he teaches to use of this book both towards ourselves, in this and the next verse: and in respect of God for declaration of his truth, there to the fifteenth verse (Revelation 22:11-15). (4) That is, propound this prophecy openly to all and conceal no part of it. The contrary to that which is commanded in (Isaiah 8:16; Daniel 8:26).
