-Matthew 11:11-Why does this scripture say that none was greater than John the Baptist? I thought Jesus would have been greater?

John the Baptist was "born of a woman".
    Jesus was too, but really He was the only begotten of God to the time of His physical birth -John 1:14 "And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father full of grace and truth." John 1:18, "No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him." John 3:16,18; 1John 4:9 "In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him."

-Revelation 19:10-Why is the testimony of Jesus the spirit of prophecy? What does all that mean?

Testimony means to express a strong belief; to make a statement based on personal knowledge in support of an asserted fact; to bear witness (example – the exhilaration of weightlessness, to which many astronauts have testified); to witness, which means to give a first hand account of something -1John 5:10.
    And what did Jesus testify of

When John wrote this he was on the isle of Patmos, an island to which he was banished by the Roman Emperor Domitian in A.D. 95. It was here that he received from God the revelation recorded in the book he wrote, the Book of Revelation -Revelation 1:9; 2Peter 1:20,21 "Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man, but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost."
    Revelations come from God through true prophets.
    So, the strong belief in Jesus is what allows the Holy Spirit to guide you into inner sensing, or 'seeing', 'feeling' what is to come for you and others.
    Strong belief in Jesus produces this guidance which is an aspect of the righteousness of God in you -Romans 8:4.

-Revelation 12:17 What are the commandments being talked of here?

See Romans 8:4 and follow through.

-2Peter 1:7 What does he mean "charity" here?

The original Greek word for "charity" is "agape", and the original for the word "kindness" in this same verse is "philadelphia" being the word used to describe a love not as deep as the relationship type of love that the word agape denotes. Philadelphia has to do with love of aunt, uncle, some friends and family members, pets, etc. Philadelphia basically means brotherly love.

-2Peter 1:9 Why have we been purged from sin?

Luke 1:17.

-Matthew 6:34 What does it mean "sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof"?

Every day brings its own concerns, things that must presently be dealt with. Being apprehensive over what may come is foolish and robs you of any joy you could now experience.
    This often ensnaring, worrisome, disquieting, distracting, distrustful attitude robs the poor as much as the love of wealth does the rich. For sure, take care of what your daily concerns may be. Just don't abandon your heart to be slaughtered by the 'worry demon'.
     We are in God's heart, His mind, His arms, and our life is first and foremost in His hands. Do not be anxious for the future, how you shall live next year, or when you are old, or what you shall leave behind you.
    What can God not do for us? ...please read on
