Wesley's Notes for Revelation 18:4


18:4 And I heard another voice - Of Christ, whose people, secretly scattered even there, are warned of her approaching destruction. That ye be not partakers of her sins - That is, of the fruits of them. What a remarkable providence it was that the Revelation was printed in the midst of Spain, in the great Polyglot Bible, before the Reformation! Else how much easier had it been for the Papists to reject the whole book, than it is to evade these striking parts of it.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 18:4


Re 18:4 Come out of her, my people. This invitation is given to the people of God yet in captivity, lest by remaining they should be involved in her destruction. As God once had a captive people in the old Mesopotamian Babylon, so he has a people in the spiritual Babylon. Ever since the Reformation began, his voice has called on them to come out of her. Nor can it be doubted that he has many true and earnest worshipers still who have found enough of Christ in the mazes of the Papacy to have given him their hearts. The condemnation of the great spiritual despotism is not a declaration that all whom she has enslaved are the children of the devil.

    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
  • Insight777
    Babylon is the world nuclear industry; the combined "city" of world nuclear power plants that provide energy to help commerce / medical industry
  • BSP
    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.....
