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.

    Babylon is the world nuclear industry; the combined "city" of world nuclear power plants that provide energy to help commerce / medical industry

    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.....

    I was looking for the phrase this week, "come out of her my people" which I entered but I
    Did not get any result. Luckily I found it by myself today. I just thought you might like to
    See that. I must admit I only searched the 1st page. But thinking it was such a oft quoted
    Phrase I thought it would have come up quickly, even the first selected. I put in both Old and
    New testaments.
