Wesley's Notes for Revelation 9:12

9:12 One woe is past; behold, there come yet two woes after these things - The Persian power, under which was the first woe, was now broken by the Saracens: from this time the first pause made a wide way for the two succeeding woes. In 589, when the first woe ended, Mahomet was twenty years old, and the contentions of the Christians with each other were exceeding great. In 591 Chosroes II. reigned in Persia, who, after the death of the emperor, made dreadful disturbances in the east, Hence Mahomet found an open door for his new religion and empire. And when the usurper Phocas had, in the year 606, not only declared the Bishop of Rome, Boniface III., universal bishop, but also the church of Rome the head of all churches, this was a sure step to advance the Papacy to its utmost height. Thus, after the passing away of the first woe, the second, yea, and the third, quickly followed; as indeed they were both on the way together with it before the first effectually began.

    Thank you Carolyn for speaking up! You are perfectly correct; Angels are spirits, not flesh and bones; and have not the capacity to reproduce or copulate. That whole idiotic notion came from the same men who have tried to wipe out every reference to Christ out of the Scriptures of the Prophets. They have always resisted the Holy Ghost, and are without any understanding that we should look to them!

    The angels did not marry women. Jesus in the new testament spoke to those who would ask corrupt questions about 7 men having the same wife. Whose wife would she be in heaven. Jesus answered : you do err, not knowing the scriptures, for in heaven they neither marry or are given in marriage, but are like the angels. Angels do not marry. The sons of God refers to true believers.

    The bottomless pit is death. It is never filled until there is nothing left on earth to die. When nuclear missiles are fired from underground silos, smoke rises from the pit of death.

    Hey I thought we are all Christians here, no need in saying someone is clueless everyone has there own idea of what the scriptures tell them and there is no need to talk to your wife that way. I'm a bride and I wouldn't want anyone talking to me like that just because my opinion is different than theirs. I believe Daniel hasn't been opened yet and I'm right.
