BABYLON IS FALLEN

April 11, 2012

Revelation chapter eighteen opens with John seeing a high ranking angel who illuminated the earth with his presence as he descended from heaven. This angel announced the fall of Babylon which represents the commercial capital city of the Antichrist.

Much speculation has been done on its’ actual location; however for now what is important to note is, it will exist. This city is overrun with varying kinds of demonic spirits. It will be a cesspool of evil.

According to the Word in one day God will destroy this city in all her splendor and magnitude. People of all socio-economic status who benefited and prospered from her wealth will stand afar off weeping and lamenting because their livelihood and indulgences of the flesh has ended. However, the believers are told to rejoice over her demise.

A voice could be heard instructing converts to evacuate Babylon lest they partner with her in sin and judgments; for God remembered the sins of Babylon and will recompense it.

A millstone is thrown into the sea by a mighty angel as a graphic example of Babylon’s doom. Its’ destruction is complete: no work, no more music or singers, no wedding, no artisans, and no lights.  Merchants will no longer be selling: food, commodities, jewels, decorative items, cloths, war equipment, luxurious fragrances, or slaves. All of this will be divine retribution for its’ continual persecution of believers.
