Wesley's Notes for Revelation 18:1


18:1 And I saw another angel coming down out of heaven - Termed another, with respect to him who came down out of heaven, #Rev 10:1|. And the earth was enlightened with his glory - To make his coming more conspicuous. If such be the lustre of the servant, what images can display the majesty of the Lord, who has thousand thousands of those glorious attendants ministering to him, and ten thousand times ten thousand standing before him?


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 18:1


Re 18:1 The Doomed City SUMMARY OF REVELATION 18: The Fall of Babylon Decreed. The People of God Commanded to Come Out of Her. The Kings of the Earth Lament Over Her Fall. The Merchants and Traffickers Also Lament. The Millstone Cast into the Sea. After these things. Those described in chapter 17. Another angel. Some have urged that this is Christ. There is no proof of their correctness. Having great power. There was assigned to him great authority. And the earth was lightened with his glory. This was a proof of power proceeding from God.

    Babylon the great is the false religion where kings of the earth and rulers (wild beast)fornicate with her she is like a prostitute because she has relations with all of them

    Satan uses false religion but in verse 4 Jehovah God warns us to get out of false religion.
  • Word
    Satan is one of the beast and the other is the people that rise up to follow him meaning a one world religion and has nothing to do with Rome except the fact that Rome and the Pope will join into the one worldism of the political religious leader which is Satan the beast. The world will follow the beast.

    Menno- that's the beast of Rev 13, who gives power to first beast, which is Rome. Look at all the ones reaching out. This is 500th anniversary of protestant ref.and ROME says it's over as all the Lutherans are rejoining Rome. Who is SHE to say it's over, she didn't start it, Bible believing Christians did. Deadly wound - healed. She runs kings and the world's commerce . BTW all US pres. R royalty!
  • C.W.
    Remember one cannot serve both God, and Mammon ( money ) so the system of money is what Has been taken away here... Merchandising, wood, stone, silver, and gold, and......it not speaking of any one nation, but the monetary system of the whole world.....some are richer than others... Is all.....
