Revelation 10:5

And the angel whom I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
Read Chapter 10

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
The Angel.swore.that time shall be no longer. This seems to favour very much the exposition of those interpreters who think that all these things are not to be fulfilled till some short time before the end of the world. Others (of which see Alcazar) take this to be a prediction of the ruin and destruction of the Jews, particularly under the emperor Adrian. Others (see the bishop of Meaux) understand by this, that the time was approaching when God, by his judgments, would put an end to the idolatry and heathen worship of pagan Rome, and that his providence would make the Christian faith triumph over all its adversaries, and his Church flourish, as foretold by the ancient prophets; that is, this should come to pass when the seventh Angel should sound his trumpet. (Witham)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
