Revelation 18

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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,

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:

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.

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.

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.

24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

  1. And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.

For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

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. (‭Revelation‬ ‭18‬:‭1-8‬ KJV)Our separation from The kingdoms of this world is not a trivial matter. Our salvation depends on it. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (‭Romans‬ ‭12‬:‭2‬ KJV)
    Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. (‭1 John‬ ‭2‬:‭15‬ KJV) Our separation will keep us in that day when the devil has dominion over the kingdoms of this world. Our protection will Be our separation and dedication to God .
    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. (‭Revelation‬ ‭18‬:‭4‬ KJV)

  2. 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.

    Ever thrown a large stone into the water? Not only is there a big splash and a loud noise, but the waves and ripples roll out for a long distance. This reminds us that whatever happens in our lives not only makes a splash and gets attention, but also creates waves and ripples that affect others. The biggest waves are the ones closest to the impact. Don’t get cast down and have others taken out in your waves of destruction; and remember that the people closest to you will be affected the most.

  3. In one hour…

    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, And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! (‭Revelation‬ ‭18‬:‭17-18‬ KJV)

    It shows here that the riches of the world that lusted after is in the hand of a mighty GOD, and destroyed by His might!!!

    What are your eyes focused on? Pride, riches, self gratification?

    Pride will lead you to sin, riches drives you away from a sovereign GOD, self gratification makes you numb to the Holy Spirit.
    For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. (‭1 Timothy‬ ‭6‬:‭10‬ KJV)

    Don’t be blinded by the riches of the world, at the end it’ll profit you nothing.

    Let us not lose our first love.
    And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. (‭Mark‬ ‭12‬:‭30‬ KJV)

  4. 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.

    We should never be involved with anything accept the church of the living God. When we become partakers with other peoples sins, we will pay the price of their sins. The word here says that we should come out of that church of Babylon where we will not be partakers of her sins.
    It does not stop there we will also suffer and receive according to our sins the reward for our transgressions. When we are deceived by the false doctrines that are taught from other forms of religion, not the truth. We will suffer for that deception, especially if we had been partakers of this great Holy Ghost message!

  5. NOW IS THE TIME

    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.

    One must feel the urgency of the hour we live in. Sin is rampant, unrighteousness is heralded, deception is widespread and deceit is deadly. Come out of her! Get out of sinful lifestyles and repent before GOD and man. The soon coming day the LORD will remember the iniquities of mankind and judge accordingly.

    NOW IS THE TIME to REPENT and turn away from wickedness and sin no more. NOW IS THE TIME to SERVE the LORD with Gladness.
    NOW IS THE TIME to SHARE the GOSPEL with everyone we know and meet.

    iRepent
    iPraise
    iPray
    iWork
    iGive
    iReap

  6. 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.

    I’m thankful for baptism in the name of Jesus. This allows my sins to go before me and be put under the blood of Jesus. Therefore I will not have past sins waiting on judgement at the rapture, and daily I can repent before the Lord to keep my heart and life pure, open and honest before Him.

    Psalm 79:8 O remember not against us former iniquities: let thy tender mercies speedily prevent us: for we are brought very low.

  7. 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.

    We must not pertake in the sin of this world, but set ourselves apart from it and live in Gods glorious light!

    And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (‭Romans‬ ‭12‬:‭2‬ KJV)

  8. Babylon will fall again.

    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.

    Babylon- the world and its systems will fall. They will fail us in the end. We must be ready and be prepared for that day.

  9. 1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.

    We need to be the light of the world and tell other people how great God is and what he can do for their lives!!

  10. 1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.

    All of creation including the Angels are created to reflect the glory of God! God puts the evidence in everything that we see around but sometimes we live distract from what God is telling us and showing to us all throughout our lives. There are many distractions to keep us away from viewing the glory of God that is evident in our lives and inside of ourselves. So concentrate on Jesus and don’t let the enemy keep your eyes off of him.

  11. 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.

    We are in the world but not of the world.

    Romans says come out from among them and be ye separate, touch not the unclean thing and I will believe you.

    We must be ever in the watch, on the prowl, and on guard for the world, and the enemy. We don’t want to be counted as one with Babylon.

  12. 4 Then I heard another voice calling from heaven, “Come away from her, my people. Do not take part in her sins, or you will be punished with her. (NLT)

    We must never be so caught up in this world or the things of this world that we lose sight of God. These material things will one day fade away and hold no value to where our eternity will be. Keep your eyes focused on Jesus and always return the glory and praise due unto His name.

  13. iLove to eat More Word

    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.

    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,

    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.

    Some folks tried to use these scriptures when September 11th happened. They thought for sure that the Babylon mentioned in this scripture was New York. However, babylon is not New York, but it is however fixing to be fulfilled in the near future. The Word of God will be accomplished and I personally believe that the city will be Rome.

  14. 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.

    This verse reminds me of 911 in the great city of New York. The great amount of dust, people running, crying through that cloud of dust. Once a great city, in that day was destruction, death, and desolation. You can see the sorrow just by walking the streets. Thousands of people met their judge and creator that moment… would you be ready to meet HIM???

  15. And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird! (‭Revelation‬ ‭18‬:‭2‬ NKJV)

    You live in Babylon you’ll die with Babylon.

    Live for the world you’ll burn with Thd world.

  16. Rev 18:20
    20 Rejoice over her, O heaven,
    and you saints and apostles and prophets,
    for God has given judgment for you against her!”
    (ESV)

    When we are in Christ, God will always provide over our enemies and give us the victory over him that opposes us. No matter the what our enemies do, whether they ridicule us or do harm to us God is just and will give us the justice and victory.

    Psa 27:1-3
    The Lord Is My Light and My Salvation
    Of David.
    1 The Lord is my light and my salvation;
    whom shall I fear?
    The Lord is the stronghold of my life;
    of whom shall I be afraid?
    2 When evildoers assail me
    to eat up my flesh,
    my adversaries and foes,
    it is they who stumble and fall.
    3 Though an army encamp against me,
    my heart shall not fear;
    though war arise against me,
    yet I will be confident.
    (ESV)

  17. “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.” When the shepherd speaks one would be wise to listen, for God uses the man of God. Dear God, let me hear and not become deaf; “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done”. In God we trust! What a mighty God we serve! Thank God for his word. God bless America, Jerusalem, and you all in Jesus name, Amen!

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

    As we study the Word we are continually told to come out and reach souls. In fact it says that we are pilgrims, passing through to our eternal destination …

  20. Then I heard another voice calling from heaven, “Come away from her, my people. Do not take part in her sins, or you will be punished with her. For her sins are piled as high as heaven, and God remembers her evil deeds. (‭Revelation‬ ‭18‬:‭4-5‬ NLT)

    We cannot entertain the things God wants us seperated from. If you take part in the world then you will be punished as the world is punished. We are a chosen people and we need to live up to the standards God has placed before us. God wants no part in evil and neither should you.

  21. 17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and

    You can build the greatest work known to man, beautiful and magnificent in the eyes of all that see it. But if you don’t build a coursing to Gods plans it will all be for nothing in the end. If I were to build a house for a homeowner and never get their input on the details of the project or talk to them about the plan I’m sure they wouldn’t be happy with the project and I wouldn’t get paid. The same goes for our lives, God is the master architect. We have to continually seek his wisdom in our lives, seeking his plan. If not it is for nothing.

  22. 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.

    Babylon according to strong’s definiton means “confusion”. We can see how confusion can invite to dwell all kinds ok evil. Confusion can bring disunity and hurt an entity wether is organization or ministry.

  23. 20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.

    God is the true Avenger!

  24. Rev. 18:9 Then the kings of the earth, those who committed acts of immorality with her and shared her luxury, will weep and wail over her when they see the smoke of her burning.

    Those who benefited from the prosperity of Rome would lament over her destruction.

  25. Symbolic imagery

    Rev 19:11-16

    This description is symbolic and very metaphorical. To image that Jesus and the army of angels will come back on white horses seems rather humorous in present times. In John’s time, however, this description is a description of a mighty force to be reckoned with. The reference to white signifies holiness. Whatever the physical manifestation that takes place in the second coming, we know for sure that Jesus is coming back with power and victory. The important thing to take away from this is that Jesus is coming back to end the reign of evil. Despite how grim the world is, we can rest in the hope for his return.

  26. Wine of the wrath !!!! 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, Bab’-y-lon 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. 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. Isa. 47 : 15 4. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be partakers of sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. 5. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Jon. 1 : 2 Praise Jesus !!!! Bless his name !!!!

  27. 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.

    The Lord destroys all evil, Seek righteousness and leave sin behind.

  28. v 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.

    What a privilege to be separate unto the LORD.
    WE belong to HIM, we are not our own.

  29. Verse 4 NLT ” Then I heard another voice calling from heaven, “Come away from her, my people. Do not take part in her sins, or you will be punished with her.” Same verse MSG “Just then I heard another shout out of Heaven: Get out, my people, as fast as you can, so you don’t get mixed up in her sins, so you don’t get caught in her doom.” Do not get caught up in the the things of this world, the time is now to separate yourself and return to the One True Living God….Jesus.

  30. 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.

    False gods will be thrown down.
