Knowing who God is talking about and when and where the event is occurring is especially crucial as we begin chapter 11. Is chapter 11 a continuation of chapter 10 or is it after the second coming? A closer look at Revelation 10:11 solves this mystery. Moving on, who are the “many peoples and nations and tongues and kings” referred to here? Is it the church, as some commentators suggest? Finally, John is instructed to measure the temple but leave out the outer court. Which temple is God referring to? And why would God instruct John to not measure the outer court?
