Wesley's Notes for Revelation 18:14


18:14 And the fruits - From what was imported they proceed to the domestic delicates of Rome; none of which is in greater request there, than the particular sort which is here mentioned. The word properly signifies, pears, peaches, nectarines, and all of the apple and plum kinds. And all things that are dainty - To the taste. And splendid - To the sight; as clothes, buildings, furniture.

    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!

    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.....
