Pamphlet 1903 Rev. kc 47-2

Is she married to the real "Jesus in Jerusalem"?
No, she's married to "Satan in Babylon".

Jeremiah 50:6
My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their restingplace.
How are the shepherds who lead your church doing? I'm sure they are nice people.

Now, with all that as background, and if you understand chapter 17, then you can read and understand chapter 18 all on your own! It is simply the judgment and fall of that great city. Sure, there are a few English words that don't quite bring forth the full meaning of the Greek, which we will look up, but even as it is written in the KJV you can read and understand this chapter.

Let's begin.

Rev. 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.
The Truth from our Father is light. This angel has great glory and great authority, which means lots of "thumping power".
[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.
"The show is over for you wicked whores and sluts in Babylon. Yes, that means you, Satan, and all your filthy, trashy, evil kings and birdbrains that you have caged in this city."
[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 whole world is drunk and screwed up! And the Rulers and CEOs have become "Fat Cats" through your "miracle performances" and "training". Here are the two words "abundance" and "delicacies" from Strong's.
dunamis, doo'-nam-is, Greek 1411; from Greek 1410 (dunamai); force (literal or figurative); specially miraculous power (usually by implication a miracle itself) :- ability, abundance, meaning, might (-ily, -y, -y deed), (worker of) miracle (-s), power, strength, violence, might (wonderful) work.

strenos, stray'-nos, Greek 4764; akin to Greek 4731 (stereos); a "straining", "strenuousness" or "strength", i.e. (figurative) luxury (voluptuousness) :- delicacy.

Rev. 18:4 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.
  In order for us to more fully understand this chapter 18 of Revelation we all need to go back and read the 50th and 51st chapters of the Book of Jeremiah. It concerns Babylon and it will read much like that which we shall read in Revelation 18 and it is relative to TODAY!

 Have you read Jeremiah 50 and 51 yet? What are you waiting for? The type has been set forth. Babylon is going to be the recipient of the LORD's vengeance when He returns. The warning is clear... Come out of her!

Jeremiah 51:6
Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of the LORD'S vengeance; he will render unto her a recompence.

[7] Babylon hath been a golden cup in the LORD'S hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad.

Come out of confusion! Do you remember from chapter 16 who it is that the vials are poured out upon, i.e. receives the 7 plagues? It is those who are confused, deceived. It is those who do not have the Seal of God in their foreheads! We just read Rev. 18:4 which documents that people can come out this religious confusion and escape the plagues. How is it done? By absorbing the truth of God's Word into their minds, which is in their foreheads, thereby "sealing" themselves.
Rev. 18:5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
Her sins "stink to high heaven" and our Father knows and remembers what she's done to His children.
[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.
Boy is she going to get it!
[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.
She glorifies herself in purple and scarlet robes, and decks herself with gold and precious stones, and houses herself with magnificent structures with stained glassed windows and cathedral ceilings. She's quite a religion! Looks great!

And she claims she's a Queen! She says she is not a widow, which means she has a HUSBAND. Did she wait until the great wedding feast of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, to wed Him? No, she's a WHORE!

Is she married to the real "Jesus in Jerusalem"? No, she's married to "Satan in Babylon".

[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.
That one day is the Day of the Lord, the 7th Trump. For her it will be the 7th Thump!
[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,
Gone up in smoke, the whole damnable thing! They've been stripped of everything and now stand naked.
[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.
Destroyed with the blast from the 7th Trump!
[11] And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
It shall be a sad day for those whose god is filthy lucre!
[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.

Did you catch those last two items? Satan wants your soul and he's willing to buy it! Is that something new, like a new revelation or something? Hardly!

Do you recall from chapter 12 that the dragon (you know who) drew a third of the sons of God away from God in the 1st earth age? Do you know how he did that?Have you ever read Ezekiel 28 concerning the prince and king of Tyrus, Satan?

Ezekiel 28:2
Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God:
This is in the "world that then was", the 1st earth age. (between verses 1 and  2 of Genesis chapter 1 - pamphlet #7015 & #7016 )This should remind us of what Satan will do when he is cast out of heaven (Rev. 12:7-9) and comes to earth. Here's the apostle Paul in 2 Thes. 2:4 "Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God." He hasn't changed a bit!
[3] Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee: [4] With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures:
Remember his power structure in Rev. 12:3 was basically the same as he will have when he comes here (Rev. 13:1)?  This guy buys friends and influences people with the gods of money and power and ego. Daniel records that he will do the exact same thing when he arrives. Like we said, he hasn't changed a bit!
[5] By thy great wisdom and by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches:
He was really something in the world that was. People just loved his trafficking and riches. And it all went to his head! But the point is that he will operate the same way when he gets here! So the question is... "How much will you take for your soul?" The "the spurious messiah in Jerusalem" will prepare a mansion for you, and give it to you! If you'll follow him! Most of the world will! Will you?"

Written by the hands of Jeremiah and John, are the words from the Lord our God,
"Flee out of the midst of Babylon",
"Come out of her my people!"

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
