Wesley's Notes for Revelation 9:13


9:13 And the sixth angel sounded - Under this angel goes forth the second woe. And I heard a voice from the four corners of the golden altar - This golden altar is the heavenly pattern of the Levitical altar of incense. This voice signified that the execution of the wrath of God, mentioned verses 20, 21, #Rev 9:20|,21 should, at no intercession, be delayed any longer.

Discussion for Revelation 9

    1 TIMOTHY 2:12 BUT I SUFFER NOT A WOMAN TO TEACH NOR TO USURP AUTHORITY OVER THE MAN BUT TO BE IN SILENCE
    ROMANS 15:18 FOR I WILL --- NOT DARE --- TO SPEAK OF ANY OF THOSE THINGS WHICH CHRIST HATH NOT WROUGHT BY ME TO MAKE THE GENTILES OBEDIENT BY WORD AND DEED
    1 CORINTHIANS 5:12 FOR WHAT HAVE I TO DO TO JUDGE THEM ALSO THAT ARE WITHOUT DO NOT YOU JUDGE THEM THAT ARE WITHIN
  • A disciple
    Hi Steve; No! absolutely NOT "thanking a person for disobedience!" I don't get the connection with the verse you quote? In the same chapter, those same "Jews which believed on Him" very quickly became angry and quarrelsome with the Lord, and proved what kind they really were; and even though they were in some way believing on HIM, Jesus said that they were of their father the devil. What is point?
  • A disciple
    Dear Steve; I think you are misunderstanding something; no offense taken however. If you read again carefully, the point is about whether angels were made with the ability to breed with humans; which Carolyn and I agree is unscriptural nonsense. That false teaching (idiotic notion) was started by the disobedient Jews, who don't have the Holy Spirit, and willfully reject Christ in the Scriptures.
  • Steve morrow
    THANKING A PERSON FOR BEING DISOBEDIENT --- A DISCIPLE ???
    JOHN 8:31 THEN SAID JESUS TO THOSE JEWS WHICH BELIEVED ON HIM --- IF --- YOU CONTINUE IN MY WORD THEN ARE YOU MY DISCIPLES INDEED
  • A disciple
    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!
  • Carolyn Rowe
    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.
