1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
This angel will cause the confusion to fall. Light will always show what's been hiding in the darkness. What was hidden was right in front of them the whole time. God's Truth! All they needed to do was stop listening to satan and open God's Word.
2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
Evil, confusion and immoral behavior had spread everywhere.
3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
The world has dressed evil up so pretty, those without The Truth of God won't see just how ugly they have become.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
Every action has a positive or negative reaction. Ignoring God? Any Father would want the best for their child, that's why He shows us a way out of trouble.
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
God will come to a point where He says enough. Things have gone too far. He isn't going to allow it anymore. We are the last generation to see all things come to pass. Are you ready?
6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double
Did you know when you look at satan's # 6-6-6, doubled = 1,332. Add 3 days = waiting on The Lord = 1,335 days we find in Daniel 12:12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. 3 = Resurrection in Biblical Numerics.
7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
You don't want to be this queen. We are to stay virgins for The True Christ. Do not go whoring after satan while he is here claiming to be Christ. We have been warned! Christ Jesus DOESN'T come until AFTER satan is here claiming to be Christ.
8 Therefore shall her
plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be
utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
"One day" = The Lord's Day. On that 7th trump, those that married into satans wedding will see they should have listened to The Truth.
9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
Everyone that was part of that city = confusion, will see the evil they had done for what it was. They loved it more than The Truth of God.
10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
All [EVIL] will be burnt up. Things will be put back the way God wants it to be. The earth and all the things of it. Did you know there were no seasons in the first age?
11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
Their love of the world religion has slapped them in the mind. All the little trinkets they made had no meaning.
12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,
This junk is what makes up the things for the show. For the royalty of satan and his followers to feel special about their churches.
13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
What can tempt you? That's what satan is all about. What things of the earth can tempt you to let go of The Truth of God?
14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.
In the end, we will see what was important. It's been our souls. What did we do for it while here on earth. "Fruits" = actions. God was waiting.
15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
All these religious systems earthly possessions will be gone. They sold people lies so they could gain the world and sell the souls to evil. Almost every so-called church today is doing just that. I see many today following these churches believing they are of God. It's very sad that so many can be fooled so easily, but those that know God's Word also know this must be.
16 And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
"Alas" = is used as an exclamation to express sorrow, grief, pity, concern, or apprehension of evil. In this case it's "apprehension of evil".
17 For in one hour so great
riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships,
and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
"Sea" = "people" Ref. Rev. 17:15 and the sailors are those supplying evil things to souls in satans religious system. Because people refuse The Truth of God's Word for the lies of satan, while sitting in satans religious church system, they follow evil calling it good. Look what they do today! Being a homo is ok to a celebration of easter. One of these God says is an abomination and the other is worshiping a sex goddess. Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!
They're upset by the fact satans system is being burnt away. They still want evil over the good. They see things as a loss. When you wake up do you see light or darkness. Would you know the difference? Are you being deceived by satans systems, his churches or government? More are than not. It's time to really get into God's Word and pray for wisdom.
19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.
Some will be so happy on this day, at this hour = 7th trump. They're called Christians. REAL Christians! †
20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
It has all been corrected as this moment. All those from the beginning of this flesh age until That day of The Lord = 7th trump = Trump of God.
21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
Here is where a verse should come to mind. What did Christ say about Jerusalem and His coming? Matthew 24:2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;
Things of this flesh will be no more. There will be no need nor should there be any want of them.
23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
satans tricks will be out in the open.
24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
Evil will do that. The confusion that was prominent to those with Truth will be seen by all and exist no more.
