Wesley's Notes for Revelation 18:24


18:24 And in her was found the blood of the prophets and saints - The same angel speaks still, yet he does not say in thee, but in her, now so sunk as not to hear these last words. And of all that had been slain - Even before she was built. See #Matt 23:35|. There is no city under the sun which has so clear a title to catholic blood - guiltiness as Rome. The guilt of the blood shed under the heathen emperors has not been removed under the Popes, but hugely multiplied. Nor is Rome accountable only for that which hath been shed in the city, but for that shed in all the earth. For at Rome under the Pope, as well as under the heathen emperors, were the bloody orders and edicts given: and whereever the blood of holy men was shed, there were the grand rejoicings for it. And what immense quantities of blood have been shed by her agents! Charles IX., of France, in his letter to Gregory XIII., boasts, that in and not long after the massacre of Paris, he had destroyed seventy thousand Hugonots. Some have computed, that, from the year 1518, to 1548, fifteen millions of Protestants have perished by the Inquisition. This may be overcharged; but certainly the number of them in those thirty years, as well as since, is almost incredible. To these we may add innumerable martyrs, in ancient, middle, and late ages, in Bohemia, Germany, Holland, France, England, Ireland, and many other parts of Europe, Afric, and Asia.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 18:24


Re 18:24 In her was found the blood of prophets, and of the saints. It is because she has slain the saints of the Most High that these judgments come upon her. As Jerusalem in the time of Christ filled up the measure of the sins of Israel (Mt 23:29,35,36 Lu 11:51 13:33), so the spiritual Babylon, the great persecutor, fills up the measure of the sins of the beast and false prophet, and is required to account for the blood of slaughtered prophets and saints of all ages.

Discussion for Revelation 18

    Do not be deceived by believing this is not America, specifically the Big Apple which is the financial and trade hub of the whole world to this day. More funds flow through NY based institutions than any other city. The securities and futures industries do not rely on the local goods or services. The Big Apple of deception is the only city that fits this prophecy. The US is the only nation that sits on many waters. Ask God for a heart of repentance, receive JESUS as your Savior and escape the hell that is soon to consume this land and then the whole world.
  • Ronald Conn
    Right now, our nation fits the best description for this horrific prophecy to come into play!!! He mentions it will be desolate in one hr, three times!!! Reminding us it will be swift!!! As the last days play out right in front of our eyes, like the Pharisees cud not see Jesus for who He really was, many will also be blinded by the fact of what God has told us in His mighty mighty word!!! Selah!!!
  • Wesley
    Babylon can not be the United States because we no longer have oil or fine jewels or even grow enough food to make any differences in our world.Babylon is the EAST where we get about all our resources. America will not be on the map in the last days. Better get your life right with CHRIST now
  • Word
    As far as I can see Americans will have problems but not much if you understand you have to wait for the true Christ. Russia and China might be a problem but if you trust God you'll be o.k.
  • Don Edwards
    America will first fail and then fall like Babylon. Let us pray for renewal and spiritual revival.
  • Netta
    I believe revelation 18 speaks about the great city of New York City and the 2 towers.It sounds like a God is angry that the city is filled with so much sin and greed lust and fornication. The more I read the more I know that God foreseen all of what's happening in the world and he will have the victory in the end when Jesus come down and cast all of Satan's followers too hell.
