Wesley's Notes for Revelation 18:6


18:6 Reward her - This God speaks to the executioners of his vengeance. Even as she hath rewarded - Others; in particular, the saints of God. And give her double - This, according to the Hebrew idiom, implies only a full retaliation.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 18:6


Re 18:6 Reward her even as she rewarded you. This is addressed to those who have meted out her judgments. The divine principle of judgments is that every one shall be rewarded "according" to his works. What they sow, "that" shall they reap. And double unto her double according to her works. This power shall have returned upon it in double portion what it has meted out to others.

  • Freedomborn Now
    How sad that those who have not asked for God's Wisdom are still in darkness, it's needed to understand His Truth Prov4:7 Jesus our only Spiritual Teacher, not a Man or Woman leads us into all Truth. God is Love and can do no evil nor does He deliberatly hurt or deceive us Lam3:33 but we do reap the evil we sow in words and actions. God Can and Does bring good from evil but He does not promote it.

    Verse 8. Thank Jehovah-GOD for working through those that spent there life digging in the dirt. This same dirt, in 2019, proves GOD has 'rained down fire' on her in the past. GOD gave these wise people wisdom to read the dirt for HIS Glory, also others GOD allowed to bring high tech to us to speedily get the warning shouted to all so we can timely take the correct action. Verse 2,3, is Truth.
  • Obbie Beal
    Verse 8 is a Blessing from Jehovah GOD. It is amazing GOD allowed men sciences to locate the evidence that proves where the fire is both located and waiting for GOD to release it 'again'. GOD has spoken through men sciences but people are sooo busy enjoying dainty-stuff many will miss-out on the Blessing by not coming-out of her thereby avoiding verse 8. John 3:16 is on the move again.
  • Truth will out
    Another thing, how many PAGAN idols and traditions have been adopted by the RCC. How many images of Jesus have you seen with a SUN behind his head? That is BAAL, SUN worship. RCC also put up a statue of MOLOCH in the Vatican and Catholic hospitals commit murder abortion . "Who is the whore of babylon in revelation?" might be a better search to find the article since I can't post links.
  • Truth will out
    "The Roman Catholic Church is the Whore of Babylon. " Look up that phrase and you should see plenty of articles on it written by true Jesus-preaching ministries. Their MARK, as the RCC has openly stated, is the SUNday sabbath but they had no right to change sabbath from the SEVENTH day to the FIRST day. I wanted to leave this comment on a specific verse, but the comments seemed to be disabled
  • Joe
    I wonder if mystical Babylon is meant to be all people who are not servants of God, but followers of Satan pursuing worldly pleasures. Let us take warning from the things which brought others to destruction and set our affections on heaven above and not the changeable nature of earthly things.
