Wesley's Notes for Revelation 18:2

18:2 And he cried, Babylon is fallen - This fall was mentioned before, #Rev 14:8|; but is now declared at large. And is become an habitation - A free abode. Of devils, and an hold - A prison. Of every unclean spirit - Perhaps confined there where they had once practised all uncleanness, till the judgment of the great day. How many horrid inhabitants hath desolate Babylon! of invisible beings, devils, and unclean spirits; of visible, every unclean beast, every filthy and hateful bird. Suppose, then, Babylon to mean heathen Rome; what have the Romanists gained, seeing from the time of that destruction, which they say is past, these are to be its only inhabitants for ever.

 

People's Bible Notes for Revelation 18:2

Re 18:2 And he cried . . . Babylon the great is fallen. Compare this description with Isa 21:9 14:23 13:21. The fall of Babylon has been already declared, Re 16:19 17:16 but now it is developed. This picture is intended to portray her utter desolation.

 

Comments for Revelation 18:2

Daniel's comment on 2014-01-01 11:59:00:

As a great millstone into the sea.

The cup of God's wrath a winepress, the blood to the horse bridles.

In One Hour.

Her waves to consume as Baby sinks forever.

"...every unclean and hateful bird."

Spotted owl anybody? America, it is
one minute to midnight.

 

Debi's comment on 2010-08-10 23:52:43:

To me this is speaking in the day in which we are living. So many unclean spirits, gods from mans wicked imagination, and the hate is growing stronger against the christian name.
