People's Bible Notes for Revelation 9:21


Re 9:21 Neither repented they of their murders. In the Crusade against the Albigenses, conducted by Rome in the thirteenth century, it is estimated that one million martyrs perished. Nor of their sorceries. Tricks to deceive, so characteristic of the priests. Nor of their fornications. This term may mean spiritual fornication or apostasy, and it may mean literal fornication. In either sense it is true of the religious features of the fifteenth century. Nor of their thefts. Thefts in resorting to deceptions and impostures to extort money from the people. Tetzel's mission to Germany early in the sixteenth century is an illustration. Instead of repentance after the great judgment on the Eastern Church, the Western Church grew worse and worse.

Discussion for Revelation 9:21

  • Mary Hyduck for verse 21
    The Devil has a plan and it is in action today.
    He is preparing the youth today to fufil this prophecy of not repenting of sexual immorality, Sorcery, and their murderings by his media influence over society today.
    The mainstream of the current youth popular books ( including public school books) that focus on the occult, witchcraft, and sorcery,combined with the increasing popular violent video games that involve revenge or retaliation through murder, and the TV shows that weaken the concience through immorality by flauntiung a impure lifestyle that denies God and obedience to his word. No wonder we have a society that mocks the very idea of living for God.
    Parents pray for Gods Wisdom in how to raise our children in such a way so they do not fall prey to the devils plan to prepare them to fufil this prophecy in revelations.
  • Timothy Wayne George for verse 21
    God will bring the twenty one judgments, seven seals, seven trumpets, and the seven bowls of wrath on all the world, because they will not repent of their murders, drug dealings, sexual immorality, and their thefts, Still God is not slack concerning His promises, not willing that any should perish, but that all men would come to repentance.
