1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
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.
Because when the TRUE Christ returns at the seventh trumpet, the Babylon of the end times will fall and the king of the Babylon of the end times (which is Satan’s role of antichrist) will be destroyed which is when Satan himself will be locked up in the bottomless pit until the thousand years are finished.
3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication,
The wine of the fornication of the of whore of Babylon is the same thing as the blood of a dead man we read of back in Revelation 16:3.
Most Christians will cease to believe upon the only begotten Son of God and His blood shed on the cross when they begin worshipping the son of perdition at 666 which is what will cause them to lose their virginity spiritually speaking when they become the whore of Babylon as opposed to the virgin bride of Christ.
and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her,
Meaning the non-Christians who will make up the other two-thirds of the earth’s population at that time who will be spiritually dead already when Satan’s one world religious system comes into being at the woe of the sixth trumpet.
The remaining third will be those who were Christians up until they get slain spiritually in the Great Apostasy which is when they will become the whore of Babylon.
and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
Meaning the Kenites who (as we covered in the last chapter) are the nakar in the Hebrew as you can see on page 871 of the Companion Bible: the ‘foreign’ woman meaning foreign to Christianity.
The Kenites having planted the seed of the mark of the beast using education, economics, politics and religion in the foreheads of most Christians who will become the zur in the Hebrew which means the ‘apostate’ woman (a.k.a. the whore of Babylon) when they cease to be citizens of the heavenly Jerusalem at 666.
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.
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
Many will come out of the Babylon of the end times because of what the Holy Spirit will say through those who get delivered up during that time.
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.
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.
Because they will think Satan is Jesus when he appears as the false 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.
The destruction of the Babylon of the end times at the woe of the seventh trumpet when the true Christ returns coincides with the destruction of Satan’s role of antichrist which (again) is the king of Babylon of the end times.
This is also when Satan himself will be cast into the bottomless pit and all who are still part of Satan’s family tree at that time will be counted as evil figs and cast into the outer darkness.
Having failed to take part in the first resurrection they will then have to wait until the thousand years are finished to either stand against Satan and take part in the second resurrection or they can follow Satan again and get cast into the lake of fire which is the second death.
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,
Which means when they realize the TRUE Christ has returned as King of kings and Lord of lords and destroyed Satan’s one world religious system as well as his role of antichrist.
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.
11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
The four hidden dynasties of education, economics, politics and religion will cease to be at that time when all are changed into spiritual bodies at the seventh trumpet.
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,
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.
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.
Because (again) all flesh will be changed into spiritual bodies at the seventh trumpet when the TRUE Christ returns as King of kings and Lord of lords which is when He will destroy Satan’s one world system as well as his role of antichrist.
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,
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!
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,
18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!
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.
Because in the midst of the five month long hour of temptation she went from being the virgin bride of Christ to the whore of Babylon when she began to worship Satan who is the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet.
20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
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.
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;
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.
This word translated as ‘sorceries’ in the Greek comes from #5332 in the Strong’s Concordance which means poisoner as in the poisoning of the mind with the deception that Satan is Jesus returned.
24 And in her (Babylon) was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
Meaning not only the bloodguilt upon the Kenites that most Christians will become partakers of at the sixth seal, the sixth trumpet and the sixth vial but also all the Christians that were slain spiritually in the Great Apostasy who will fail to repent before the seventh angel sounds which is when the true christ returns.
They will be placed in the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of almighty God which will purge them of that blood of a dead man meaning the rebelliousness they allowed Satan to place within them all the way back in the first world age.
In other words: if they choose to absorb Christ’s teachings of discipline through the millennial priesthood and then stand against Satan after the thousand years are finished they will take part in the second resurrection having washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb being then able to go into the Eternity as citizens of the new Jerusalem in the third world age.
