pleasure

Revelation 4:11

4:11 pleasure. “Pleasure” here is the Greek thelema, usually rendered “will.” Its first occurrence is in Matthew 6:10, where the Lord Jesus told us to pray: “Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven,” looking forward to the ultimate answer to this prayer at Christ’s return. Here in this verse, where the final use of thelema occurs, that prayer is about to be answered, and it looks back to the original creation.
