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.

    She has her hands deep in capitalism. Notice that EVERYTHING in list are things desired, but not needed. We are talking about the most wealthy organization on the face of the earth. Notice that the last on the list, the souls of men. She used to control world with fear. Now it's money and products, food, fresh drinking water . How much do we spend on STUFF the TV makes you THINK you need? Think!
  • Obbie Beal
    Huumm... in 18 she has earned the title Babylon; She was / is soooo good at what she do therefore all nations of the world do business with her (directly or indirectly)... And she shall receive her reward for her actions... Lots of inesent blood is on her hands, now she must pay for her actions... The 'love' of/for money is the root to all evil. World-wide buying and selling in 18.
  • Sabbath keeper and Wife
    It's was all about Rome at the end of Dan. It's the same in Rev. She has daughters(apostate churches). Rome had names of blasphemy (forgiving sins in God's place and calling herself God) Her apparel like the high priests in Lev. but no blue thread which is to remind us of the commandments. A so-called Christ. worship that does not keep commandments. All 10! Come out of her. Satan gave it's power
  • Orville
    At the 7th trumpet we are all changed into spiritual bodies.......another dimension, hence the reason flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God, God and the angels reside in another dimension....the merchants of the earth realize it's basically over for them....bye, bye! Same earth different age......the Lord's Day, mankind was given 6 days (6,000 years) and failed.
  • Julie
    I also believe that Babylon is the U.S. we have been and are the most powerful nation on earth. we have made all other nations rich and we are a proud people and we think that nothing bad will ever happen to destroy us. And we have turned our back on God, we have idols in all forms. We have walked away from God, therefor God will not hear our nation when our day of judgment comes.
  • Lucinda Palestrant
    Babylon is a city. Rev. 18 is calling her a "great city" all through the chapter, verse 18-24.
