this is a continuation of our messages on the book of Revelation we been studying the book of revelations of you like to just very briefly turn to Revelation chapter one and verse one of me very briefly given overview of what we've studied so far in leading up to our study of revelation scene the second Angels message but very briefly the book of Revelation opens with these words the replication are home Jesus Christ revelation doesn't just reveal scary things are symbols are being blatantly revealed in Jesus Christ and he goes on to say which God gave him to show his servants things which must shortly take place and he sent and signified it by his angel to his servant John that John receives this message which is the revelation of Jesus Christ and it contains things which will shortly take place so the Islamic things were going to take place in the future the revelation in the book of prophecy that revealed Jesus Christ as the early chapters go on the unit groups of seven but it's the symbolic seven churches the symbolic seven seals of symbolic seven trumpets all of them give a history of the church from the time of John when he was writing all the way to the time of Jesus returned some two thousand years later and I personally praise the Lord that we are living towards this end of the spectrum instead of that end of the spectrum I believe Jesus coming as soon and very soon as we see prophecy unfold and be steep fulfillment all around us and we find itself now at the time near Jesus coming in the second half of the book revelation focuses on those in time events in Revelation chapter eleven we saw a difficult time forgot people per one thousand two hundred and sixty years in Revelation chapter twelve is not difficult time over one thousand two hundred and sixty years in Revelation chapter thirteen we saw difficult time forgot people for one thousand two hundred and sixty years yet all of those times the church was faithful but they were told to hang on or be patient or indoor born in Revelation chapter fourteen God 's messengers if you want if they strike back Revelation chapter fourteen opens with a view of this hundred and forty four thousand again symbolic which had been part of the hands of a single song before the throne and they follow the Lamb wherever they go it says in verse five and in their mouth was found what no deceit so if you don't have deceit in your mouth what do you have any amount true right these people are speaking the truth of God representing the character of God against the backdrop of all the darkness that Satan is trying to foist upon the earth a and out of their mouths come these what we know collectively as the three angels message God 's last warning to the world soon to be confronted with the coming of Jesus these three angels message last Sabbath we look to the first Angels message will review it briefly now verse six reads that I saw another angel fly limits of heaven having the everlasting gospel to preach those that dwell in the air to every nation tribe Tom and people saying with a loud voice fear God and give glory to him for the hour of his judgment has come and worship him who made that have been the earth the sea and the springs of water as we saw in Revelation thirteen and rest Revelation fourteen there are eight different calls to worship seven of them are called to worship the counterfeit Christ but there's one called true worship to God and his people will be giving to this earth at that time and as they give that message they also proclaimed that the hour of his judgment not will or might what the buzz we understand the messages of the three angels in particular first one of the begin are to be given at a particular time in Earth 's history after that one thousand two hundred sixty years of persecution that we've studied previously ended in seventeen ninety eight and during the time of the judgment that began in heaven in eighteen forty four things messages that were reading are particularly pertinent to the Christians living in the world today to the to the messengers that God has on earth at this time in which we're living in today were to study the second message and verse eight and another angel followed saying Babylon is what fallen is fallen that great city because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication the burden of our message today is to understand the second phase of the three Angels messages this Babylon is fallen message and its application in our lives today but before we do any studying the court to start with WordPress dear heavenly father thank you so much for this opportunity to Sabbath provides for physical rest and for spiritual fellowship and now Lord as we as a people come to your word we ask that the same spirit who inspired writings will now write it up on our hearts and minds of us not only to understand and receive it Lord help us to be your messengers in these closing hours birth history for we pray in Jesus name amen as we look at first a revelation fourteen in entire sermon from one verse is it possible yes indeed in fact I think there's several verses have a good sermons right here in this verse but you notice that the language that's used in Revelation fourteen fact often times in the book of rain of revelation is symbolic and it's not just symbolic and numbers and colors but also alludes to Old Testament for in reference to Sodom and Gomorrah and the Jezebel and the things that he does explain the whole story expects you to already know the story of Sodom and Gomorrah or Jezebel or in this instance the city of Babylon and so if you didn't know what Babylon was an you just came to revelation fourteen verse eight just start shooting from the hip I think Apple and I think that Babylon but the Bible is its own interpreter and we should understand the Bible already addresses blue and what Babylon is so let's take a look at the day were to study what is this Old Testament references being employed here in Revelation fourteen eight what is the history of Babylon understand that we need to go to the other end of the Bible if the Genesis chapter nine Genesis chapter nine basically is the story of Noah and his family stepping off the art at the end of the flood a chapter six seven eight lead up to chapter nine tell the story of the great flood God sent on the earth in the reason that God sent this letter on the earth is because of the wickedness of the earth at that time in fact the beginning of the flood story in Genesis chapter six just a few verses or explains verse five and Chapter six the Lord saw the wickedness of man was great in the earth that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually and the Lord was sorry that he made the made men on earth and he was grieved in his heart so he said I will destroy man whom I created the face of your man and beast creeping thing and birds of the air Friday sorry that I made him but Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord in his chapter six seven eight continue to tell that story of the flood and when it's all over we go to Genesis chapter nine know and his family stepped off of the boat boat into a completely on related reason the reformed and refashioned warbled to the chapter nine verse one so God blessed Noah and his sons and said to them be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth by the way already in Genesis nine their borrowing language from earlier in the Old Testament be fruitful and multiply where does that remind you of creation right admitting basically started the world all over again be fruitful and multiply and what was supposed to do fill the art they didn't say stay in one place and build the great cities that spread out over the earth and fill it up the leader this was the gun again even if you skip down by the way the verse eight then God spoke to know and to his sons notice as always Noah and his sons interest saying as for me behold I establish my covenant with you and your descendents after you and every living creature that is with you the birds the capital of every beast of the earth is with you all to go out of the ark every piece of your bus I establish my covenant with you never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of the flood never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth so you get the picture that Noah and his sons and their wives to go with them this family of God step out to repopulate the earth that God has destroyed because the first wicket stand with it but he makes a covenant with them each give the command be fruitful and multiply to fill the earth but don't worry I will never flood the earth again as we have with water before and now go down to verse eighteen of the sons of Noah who went out of the ark where Shannon Hamm and Jason these were the sons of Noah and from these the whole earth is populated and seems clear enough but already it starts to tell the story you think all good all the wickedness has been destroyed everything is going will start off fresh will be start off fresh automatically right at the very beginning of this new history we see the grieving in a rebellion once again with the story that unfolds the inelegant gift already planted a vineyard and he drank of the wine was drunk and became uncovered in his tent and ham the father of Canaan saw the nakedness of his father and told his two brothers outside of the Bible to think it was too many details of that particular incident but apparently it was quite immoral what hand did his father awaits to see this in fact go to verse twenty four so Noah awoke from his wine and knew what his younger son had done to him then he said cursed be Canaan servant of servants you shall be to his brother that is the descendent of the offspring of ham and he said Blessed be the Lord the God of Shem and Medicaid and be his servant they got a large sheet of the media dwell in tents of Shem and may Canaan be his servant you basically have all and his three sons Shem ham and Jason but already in the first generation of new repopulation of planet Earth we find the rebellion that had marked the world before the flood coming in again through the lineage of hand-in-hand and his descendents basically all the went by the way shape then the Bible says hesitance would dwell with them they would become one large family and then there would be handed his distance it's easy to see start with the two seeds two lines come out of the flood just as they were two lines came and sat coming out of the creation story recall so now it happened again and it outlines all of these descendents in chapters and chapter ten verse one it says now this is the genealogy of the sons of Noah Shem ham and Jason the flood on when you might be thinking why are we talking about Noah and the flood but if I buy the book of Revelation this is the beginnings of Apple ever getting them versus two through six objective five outline the sons of Jacob in which they would be exhorted to the sons of Seth shall not start to look at verse six the sons of ham with him was the rebellious one the naughty one right work Bush newsroom put in Canaan in the event of verse eight collage was of course the son of ham was the son of Noah Bush begot Nimrod and he begins it and he began to be a mighty one on the earth he was a mighty hunter before the Lord therefore dissent like Nimrod the mighty hunter before the Lord apparently Nimrod was a very influential very powerful individual was well known a mighty man what does he do with that might burst in and the beginning of his kingdom was Babel you have some other nations other other cities began as well put apparently Babel was the begin of the city and then in chapter eleven it tells us the story of Babel the watch this chapter Leavenworth one now the whole earth had one language in one speech that makes sense by the way that the world would have one language in one speech if there was one family that started it all there's no diversification as it one family one speech one language first two and it came to pass as they journeyed from the East but they found a plain in the land of Shinar and thirdly dwelt there they said to one another come let us make bricks and bake them thoroughly they had brick for stone and they had asked all for more and they said let us build ourselves and we typically build ourselves a tower right were already all I know this is the tower of Babel below is their primary purpose is not to build a tower the tower was one function of it right it could come let us build ourselves what a city with a tower whose top is in the heavens let us make a name for ourselves lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the holder I love you notice this but there's a couple things contrary to the command of God and here first of all got instead multiply and fill the earth and they say let's build a great city right here so we don't have to be scattered across the face of the earth were the congregate here and be one massive humanity instead of spreading across the polar also they make this great tower which happens to be waterproof but like all the way up the goal is to make it as high as the heavens know to protect themselves against this flawed that God had said wouldn't happen he said don't worry you can go fill the whole earth I'm not within the flood again go scattered be my representatives establish the new kingdom again and they say actually instead of what God has said let's congregate together build ourselves a great city make a name for ourselves and have a great tower that everyone will know we aren't we can protect ourselves we will defy the got up at Higgins and Weber flatly wanted were to think of ourselves make a name for her spot but the Lord came down to see the city in the tower which the sons of men had built up I know that if I was a lord I wouldn't stop with the lets come down and investigate I would just start executing judgment but you will notice that every time God executes judgment seat always investigates the facts of the matter first before there is a execution of John Devine judgment as always the mine investigation to ascertain the true than to make sure everyone understands what this judgment is coming this is a fascinating thing with the template with the book of Revelation were building a and the Lord said over six in seeing the people are one and they all have one language and this is what they begin to do now nothing the paper both of you will be withheld from them I love verse seven the little linguistic irony come let us go down they could come let us make this link that is okay let us go down and they are confused their language that they may not understand one another's speech so the Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth the notices will will be done and they ceased building the city so they will with his original city was listening to his megalopolis is massive core of humanity with this tower that reaches the heaven and Nimrod was the leader and it was the gotten all their doing now basically he's all I believe in the people after the flood the same spirit and the people of off-line is that we need to do that we need to scatter them abroad we confuse their language this is your first nine therefore its name is called Babel Babel because there the Lord confused the language of all beer and from there the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of all of your and you would assume that all I guess that was the end of the story they tried to make this great city and its great tower but God stopped the building of the tower the building of the city ceased and that was the end of it but we see later in the Old Testament is a revived city of Babel or battle the book of Daniel those much later in the Old Testament history it's the things but with the same geographic location but if the Saints there is the first city of Babel Babel as it is in the renewed city of Babylon France again in chapter four here instead of Nimrod we have Nebuchadnezzar as the main leader and he was a very very proud man the Lord had worked with humans and try to change his heart but he kept going back to the Friday filing of vision was given to him that if he did not change his ways he was going to have a serious discipline process from the war but we go to Daniel chapter four in verse twenty eight where apparently all the things it and prophesied about him came to pass that says all this came upon King Nebuchadnezzar at the end of the twelve months he was walking about the Royal Palace the Babylon the King spoke saying is not this great Babylon that I have built for a royal dwelling for my mighty power and for the honor of my matches was looking around this revived Babylon city looks ready for it as this is not this great city of Babylon but I have built for my honor and glory is the spirit of Babylon it manifested itself in these gains in fact there was also a central figure like the tower previously in this Babylon is go back one chapter Daniel chapter three the same Nebuchadnezzar very much like the predecessor Babylon the great city with a great thing since her two chapter three verse one Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of goals by Leslie go through these Old Testament references you'll notice language that is borrowed from those passages that inserted in the book of Revelation relationship with all of these Babylon references together in a cumulative child in where were headed today in the sermon but for now Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold whose height was sixty cubits and its width six cubits he set up the plane of Dora in the province of Babylon and King Nebuchadnezzar sent word to gather together the satraps the administrators of Governors the counselors the treasurer of the judges the magistrate and all the officials of the provinces to come to the dedication of the image which King Nebuchadnezzar had set up so you see that there is a central leader Nebuchadnezzar the face of the organization of the will just like Nimrod before now there's a great city of Babylon the central object of honor and reverence and worship and that he literally called in all the representative all the nations tribes and on the people is the worldwide impiety cold all representatives together to that dedication ceremony of this and manage significant basically makes three one four six eight almost everyone bow down and worship course through the preview group were these who refused to bow down and worship and they stood for the right vote the heavens fall that was fast thing about this battle is it was stopped just like the earlier version of Babylon Go Daddy rep Daniel chapter five by the waiting is over for his written just to show a guy can do a stubborn hardhearted people who work with the bushmen probably whack upside the head with a two by four of me needs to look to give them every opportunity to repent and I believe with all my heart that were going to see Nebuchadnezzar once again in the resurrection of the faithful of the resurrection of the wicked magenta chapter five a new King is on the throne of Babylon and those with the Scripture reads their chapter five verse one him again made a great feast for a thousand of the Lord and drank wine in the presence of the bow of the wine is always involved here this is great sitting in all the different things that rebel it is mentioning we are unpacking here in Old Testament history of everything that great feast for thousand of his lords and drink wine in the presence of the thousand having tasted the wine belt castigate the command to bring the gold and silver vessels which his father Nebuchadnezzar had taken from the temple which had been in Jerusalem but the king and his lords and his wife this concubine might drink from them then they brought the gold vessels that had been taken from the treasure house of God which had been in Jerusalem and the king and his lords and his wife and his concubines drank from them notice that there is Babylon the city with the King leading out having people drink wine during this fornicating feats all the elements of the end of revelation fourteen verse eight are here in history but it says in verse five in the same hour the fingers of a man's hand appeared in Road opposite the lampstand on the plaster of the wall of the king 's palace and the king saw part of the hand that wrote and I'm guessing that the moment the party changed right I don't know how drunk you have to feed but to not notice the big hand writing on the plaster of the wall notice in fact versus the end of the king 's countenance what changed it so things got real and his thoughts troubled him I bet so that the joints of his hips were loosened in his knees knocked against each other and as his fathers had done before love lavender seven the king cried aloud to bring in the astrologers the Chaldeans of the soothsayers which by the way in the book of Daniel these people who apparently these divine you false prophet on the Babylonian payroll and never one time had been ever gotten anything right but people keep going back to them when they get to say something right with the right but of course they fail then someone mentioned you know there was the guy who used to read around here that I think is ready where is to be calculated in Nebuchadnezzar but I think you've sent them back somewhere else or first thirteen then Daniel was brought in before the king the king spoke and said to Daniel argue that Daniel who is one of the captives from Judah who my father became brought from Judah really not a nice way to address who is now the second highest in the kingdom basically a are you one of those chapters that my father Nebuchadnezzar brought in a long time ago anytime I heard of you that there's a spirit of God of understanding and you and now I have this mystery known as liver seventeen said I loved it so much and Daniel answered instead before the king let here just be for yourself and giving rewards to another I don't want your money on your gifts I'm doing just fine I been here long time to trust the ability here after you two goes on yet I will wait I will read the writings of the king and make known to him the interpretation and he gives a little story notice the store okaying the most high God gave Nebuchadnezzar your father acting in the majesty glory and honor and because of the mattresses he gave him all peoples nations and languages trembled in fear before him whenever he wished he executed whenever you wish to kept alive whomever you wish to set up and whoever he would be put down but when his heart was lifted up and his spirit was pardoned in pride he was deposed from his kingly throne and they took his glory from him then he the sons of men as they like the beast in his dwelling was with the wild donkeys they fit in the grass like oxygen his body was wet with the dew of heaven till he knew the most high God rules in the kingdom of men and went over to never need to delete basically if you versus the recap the story of Nebuchadnezzar and says you know what happened in fact he specifically said the birthweight you but you his son BellSouth or have not humbled your heart although you knew all this is like you should've learned his lesson but you knew all of this and you have decided to define a God who's already demonstrated himself as worthy of worship and you decided to define him publicly to drink all the one to bring in the vessels that are dedicated to him and have his fornicating season was twenty three and you have lifted yourself up against the Lord of heaven they have brought the vessels of the house before you and you and your Lord your wife your copy by the drunk one from them and you would praise the gods of silver and golden bronze and iron wood and stone which do not see or hear or know in the God I love how he addressed the end the God who holds your breath in his hand and owns all your way you have not glorified as the Stern review is like you are standing before God who hold your breath in his hand the only reason you have another breath another heartbeat another blink worked which is this guy doesn't know that God you've decided to publicly define in the fingers of the hand almost gives the impression that the fingers of the hand it's holding your breath those are the things now announced to you this judgment the fingers of the hand were sent from him and his writing was written this is the inscriptions written many many tackle farce this is the interpretation of each word in a God has numbered your kingdom and finished it time is up Perez your kingdom has been divided and given the needs and versions of high-tech verse twenty seven you have been weighed in the balances and found wanting notice again that this was what happened this night with the kingdom being taken away is simply the manifestation or the executing of a judgment that happened previous you have been weighed and found wanting there is already did an investigation and you're my friend your time is up this is their verse twenty eight your kingdom has been divided and given to the needs and the Persians and once again you have gone putting it in the to Babylon and its king so let's think about this a little bit in both instances in the original back at Howard Babel incident and now in nineteen one it was a virgin one and version two oh a type of monument is established to man's glory instead of gods to be honored by all people a some central thing is set up to be honored and revered and worshiped in the place of God also in both instances God reviews the evidence against Babylon on the gun down and see for myself on the way to the balance of the think acumen and evaluate before I execute judgment there's an investigative phase of judgment for the executive phase object exactly then God executes according to the findings of the investigation what he finds out you verify and then executes because of the fascinating all of his Old Testament history of Babylon the New Testament writers as God gives them inspiration through his Holy Spirit and they look to the coming of Jesus apparently the scene in God 's people and a third incarnation if you will about one sixty Babylon coming in and noticed that in the Old Testament Babylon started very next this was way back in the time of Noah and from that point on it it was a full blown it with immediate but that spirit of Babylon grew and grew and grew it manifests itself that builds the unit of the image in a data-driven worship and got happy with investigation and execute judgment that whole process started in the time of Noah and you see the same thing prophesied to happen after the time of Jesus with the early Christian church for the second Thessalonians if you would please second Thessalonians as the writers of prophecy look forward to the coming of Jesus notice that there's a warning about this Babylon or an antichrist power it would be coming up in the world and notice how it would come up from where we come up notice all the parallels were going to see second Thessalonians chapter two and verse one be flipping the second Thessalonians is obviously not his first address to the Thessalonica the phony people yes he had first Thessalonians if you recall if you've ever been to a funeral is set about his church are going to read from first Thessalonians chapter four with his brother and I do not will you be ignorant about those who fall asleep right a source describing the coming of Jesus but Jesus will come in the dead in Christ will rise first you know those passages very well that was in first Thessalonians so Paul has all already hold coming of the Lord Goodenow and second Thessalonians chapter two inverse one noticed when he writes if-then-else brother and concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering to him again clearly this reference the second coming we ask you not to be soon shaken in minor trouble either by spirit or by word or by letter as if from us as though the day of Christ had come down he believes that Jesus is coming the peanut of course but even if not now don't delete it if someone says by the way I got this from Paul know you didn't if I ever said he won out of my mind is regarding either the danger comes in and you cannot change this prophetic history the goddess that is one go so severe let no one deceive you know knows carefully verse three let no one deceive you by any means for that day will not come praise the Lord is no there there is a day coming in a box something has to happen first right for the day of the Lord will not come unless the falling away comes first and the man of sin is revealed the son of perdition Noble added information here son of perdition is only used twice in the Scriptures one sphere and second Thessalonians chapter to any other kind by Jesus himself in John chapter seventeen when he prayed to his father he says if the close of ministry but I've kept all those you have given me except for one son of perdition these talk about his disciples right he wasn't on the Peter even though he had allowed out he was among the public even though he is doubting who is he talking about as the son of perdition Judas is scary and you said this is the son of perdition is one of my inner circle were my closest compatriots here but one of the well fallen away and betrayed me and here the apostle Paul picks up on that language is that out of the church of Christ will come begin the me of right a falling away the man of sin the son of perdition will be revealed and notice what he says he will do it for sport and tell me that doesn't sound like Babylonian language who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped so that he sits as God in the temple of God showing himself that he is God about sound like a horrible actor and he says the day of Christ the coming of Christ will not come unless this is revealed in the homes to fruition unless this is seen now notice what he says in verse five do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things clearly is this the first time you got over this material no we have evidence of enforcement in any first Thessalonians he already told him about the coming Lord recent County some of you have forgotten what I told you right is going over this again down for six and now you know what is Reese 's training that he that is this man of sin son of perdition may be revealed in his own what time in his own thought apparently notice Paul's perspective here Jesus is coming by something has to happen first a falling away from the church at Shruti up splitting off your a man of sin a son of perdition a Genesis area type figure will arrive from within the church at an appointed time when the cat arrived yet because according to Paul there's something restraining him something will number six and now you know what is restraining that he may be revealed in his own time and then notices or seven for the mystery of lawlessness is what already at work now it has formalized into a system or structure and has built a great power image of the world built out and worship but it's already starring business spirit of antichrist of lawlessness is already at work all cents only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way apparently something was with straining with holding this complete maturing of this is a diversity in Wendell also will be revealed and then the lawlessness wall last one will be revealed whom the Lord will consume with the breath of his mouth and destroy with what the brightness of his coming the notice from Paul's perspective Jesus is coming but even already in the earliest stages the Christian church is a spirit of lawlessness already at work something 's restraining and I believe that the Imperial power of Rome a pagan Rome was still in place the time of writing all they said someday that's going to move in as give the opportunity for this Babylon to reestablish itself there will be none brother Samuel B Nebuchadnezzar but there will be a stern face King is Daniel talks about or a little horn with eyes that amount to speak pompous words against the most high will think to change the times the law will persecute the people of God for a time times and half a time a witch by the way that time times and half a time as we've mentioned before is the most often mentioned time prophecy in all the Bible time times and half his notice on the what is known as forty two months is known as one thousand two hundred sixty days but the mathematics of them all at one thousand two hundred and sixty years of this rule persecuting power over God 's people say nothing so easy is a falling away among God 's own people prophesied in the earliest days of the church that falling away would begin in the early church but would grow after given an opportunity to mature and reach its height during the one thousand two hundred and sixty years would be party covered begins in five thirty eight A.D. and in seventeen ninety eight A.D. though this Antichrist Babylon or the papacy of the Roman church would receive a deadly wound it would revive even stronger than ever by the way are we living before or after seventeen ninety after there's anyone not sure about that we are long past seventeen ninety eight we are not at the time of the deadly wound when the time that wound is being you getting stronger and stronger this Antichrist power for the last final push of Earth 's history of the site already in Revelation chapter thirteen interview Ms. those messages that are available on CD or the Internet go back and listen to at that sign of this revived Babylon it would use the strength of another nation the United States of America to establish a memorial to Babylon 's greatness this time not power and this time not in image of gold the defendant image to the beaks that everyone on earth would be required to honor upon pain of death fascinating by the way we see this again in Revelation we saw in Revelation thirteen already we study that we skip ahead revelation chapter seventeen you see mention along again seventeen verse one again looking at income events and the book of Revelation pool all of those Babylon references in the Old Testament and give them in time the significance revelation seventeen in verse one then one of the seven angels of the seven bowls and came to talk with me thankfully I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters with whom the kings of the earth committed for vacation and inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication sounds exactly like revelation fourteen verse eight the second Angels message and it's using the same language in the fall of Babylon Daniel chapter six is identified so we carry me away at the spirit in the wilderness and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which is full of names of blasphemy having seven heads and ten horns and of course in Bible prophecy the woman always represents the church the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the openness of her fornication in honor for had an name was written mystery Babylon the great the mother of parliaments by the way apparently her offspring are no good either and of the abominations of the earth I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus and when I saw her I marveled with great amazement he shows easy shown prophetically this modern-day Babylon this after Christ Babylon the astonished that notice is persecuting the Saints of God that was doing in the name of God claiming to be God in the temple of God but we go back to Revelation fourteen is apparently at the height of his power with making all the world wondered after the beast and worshiped the image of Ethan the Mark of the beast there's ability to grow the people have the audacity to stand up and say with Allawi 's Babylon is what fallen so by all appearances it looks like everybody in the world is wondering if the preceding image beef and going upmarket Iqbal the wannabes me to be unstoppable and yet there is normally everything and that the house of cards it's all quality falling and falling notice of the great city because you've made all the nations drink the wine of the wrath of her fornication is like she is made you get drunk and lose your mind but I'm telling you it's all there's no reason to go there anymore by the way the revelation chapter eighteen he describes this process of calling out to Babylon why would there be a message about Babylon falling at this time in earth history because of this verse of chapter eighteen verse one of these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven having great authority and the earth was illuminated with his glory that leaders the darkness that Satan is try to put over the entire planet but there is one of the representatives of his life and his truth is that darkness letting a shine that light right in that time it says in verse two and he cried mightily with a loud voice Babylon the great is fallen is fallen and become a dwelling place of demons a prison for every foul spirit a cage of every unclean and hated bird whoever says this at that time have some guts Babylon is sitting here cleaning to rule the world and anyone who defies this will be marked they will be will be it will not be embarking on they will be put to death and indiscriminately looked at by the way it all off and they don't just timidly hold on to disprove them hope everything goes away in the quiet they say with a loud voice Babylon is all why are they so intend I think is what we call out names now than I destroyed it but we know that's crazy over there and in and in no wire they making this call so loud and so urgent goes on for all allegations of drunk a lot of the wrath of her fornication the kings of the earth committed fornication with her the emergency or the become rich through the blood of the Berlin three and heard another voice from heaven saying come out of her home by people friends why do we cry out that Babylon is fallen is it because we pay we know that Babylon is that there is no need to call people out about come out of her my people lest you share in
