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.

    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

    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.
