Paul wrote in Romans that the coming wrath or judgment of God against the Jews would be followed by wrath against the Greeks (Rom. This is not a final judgment of humanity—a particular culture is in view.8.
The Thessalonians abandoned their idols to serve the living and true God, and to “wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come” (1 Thess. This is the wrath that was to come on the idolatrous pagan that Paul spoke about in Athens.9.

Revelation is obviously a difficult text to interpret. God’s answer is that the Babylonians in turn will be judged: “Because you have plundered many nations, all the remnant of the peoples shall plunder you, for the blood of man and violence to the earth, to cities and all who dwell in them” (Hab. There we have the argument of Revelation in a nutshell.2.The prosecutor for the case was none other than Roy Moore.OAN reports Moore made another enemy after ruling against convicted drug dealer Richard Hagedorn, who was brought before Judge Moore over contempt charges stemming from back payments for alimony and child support.The accuser, retired Alabama police officer Faye Gray, claims she was responsible for keeping an eye on Moore at the Gadsden Mall because he would make unwanted sexual advancements on young women.OAN says its “own research revealed no truth behind the claims against Moore at the mall.” Gray’s brother, Jimmy Wright, was arrested for distributing controlled substances in 1981.They will stand far off, in fear of her torment, and say, “Alas!

Ezra depicts the impending destruction of Babylon, and condemns Asia for having shared “in the glamour of Babylon and the glory of her person; Asia has “imitated that hateful harlot in all her deeds and devices” (4 Ezra -48). According to Sibylline Oracles book 5 (early second century) a “great star will come from heaven to the wondrous sea and will burn the deep sea and Babylon itself and the land of Italy, because of which many holy faithful Hebrews and a true people perished” (Sib. ); and “in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints, and of all who have been slain on earth” (Rev. Peter most likely refers to Rome as “Babylon” (1 Pet. Eusebius claimed that Peter “composed it in Rome itself, which…The parallel with Revelation 18:9-10 is clear: And the kings of the earth, who committed sexual immorality and lived in luxury with her, will weep and wail over her when they see the smoke of her burning. he himself indicates, referring to the city metaphorically as Babylon” ( 2.15.2).14.
