Inhabitants of the Earth, Persecution


The “inhabitants of the earth” represent the men and women who are excluded from the “book of life” by their own decisions.

Those who “dwell on the earth” are unrelenting in their resistance to Jesus and are wholeheartedly hostile to his followers, even rejoicing in the violent deaths of his “two witnesses.” Unlike the “nations” and the “kings of the earth,” they are beyond redemption, and their names are excluded from the “book of life.”
