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

    Friend, i think if you were to look at the scripture from a smaller perspective...Our Lord is only One man. His call is very personal. Perhaps it may help you to consider Our Lords message as one of Love...EVEN between a man and a woman? Jesus said he came to divide...to give the thief life...abundantly. Look into the REAL meaning of bread...relationships. First 10 proverbs are about adultery
  • Colm
    In 18:23 thy merchants were the great men of the earth. Possibly talking about the people who control the banking system/the people who own Hollywood? For by thy sorceries were all nations deceived, maybe talking about the satanic music industry that all the nations view and are being deceived by hidden satanic propaganda
  • Eric
    Goodbye Roman Catholic Church what a wonderful chapter giving the believer the wonderful hope of knowing this wicked abomination to this earth the Roman Catholic Church and wicked pope destroyed by Almighty God as our Lord says In Romans 12:19 Vengeance is mine I will repay saith the Lord. Praise God ! Come out of Rome people don't play with the Harlot People Jesus wants to save you from her!
  • Partridge Mutiso John
    This city of Babylon is the various false religions and false prophets who mislead believers into believing them just like beautiful cities and harlots or prostitutes! The bible calls it the Mighty Babylon. In 2Cor6:17 and Isaiah 52:11 warns us to flee before time is up!
  • Mari
    Sounds !ike Rome to me. The amount of colors the priest wears and they killed
    the saints
  • Greg
    No doubt in my mind this is about the USA. We deal with every country either directly or indirectly. This country is also brainwashed into thinking who can harm us we are so great and powerful. Vile filthy land from one state to the next beginning with porn in public on tv in your face, abortion/murder of innocent,strange religions and beliefs , idolatry , mens traditions regarded as " holidays".
