Revelation 18:20 A mill-stone boulder

Continuing our study of Revelation 18.

Revelation 18:20  ‘Rejoice over her, O heaven! Rejoice, saints and apostles and prophets! God has judged her for the way she treated you.’

The tide is turning. The satanic spirit of Babylon has ruled the world, with all her corruptions and spiritual adulteries, and the saints have suffered horrendous persecutions because of this. She thought she would get away with it scot-free but God has come to judge her for her sins.

Revelation 18:21  ‘Then a mighty angel picked up a boulder the size of a large millstone and threw it into the sea, and said: With great violence the great city of Babylon will be thrown down, never to be found again.’

There is a finality about this verse. A sudden violence will destroy Babylon and it will never be replaced or found again. 

Throughout history, when one Empires falls, another rises up to take its place. But when Babylon falls, it will never be replaced by another evil empire. The road of evil has come to an abrupt end. 

Daniel 2:44  ‘In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end but it will itself endure for ever.’

The kingdom of our Lord will reign forever. It will crush all other kingdoms and bring their evil to an end. 

Daniel 2:34  ‘While you were watching, a rock was cut out, but not by human hands. It struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and smashed them, Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold were broken to pieces at the same time and became like chaff on a threshing floor in the summer. The wind swept them away without leaving a trace. But the rock that struck the statue became a huge mountain and filled the whole earth.’

Empires fall but leave their mark on civilization but when Babylon falls it will be remembered no more. The kingdom of Christ Jesus will reign supreme.

  • Revelation 19:11 Faithful and True
    Our testimony is that Jesus has been faithful and true and stood alongside, through every storm that has been thrown at us, and never let go of us ever!
  • Revelation 19:10 The Testimony of Jesus…
    One understanding of the testimony of Jesus is that he will return as the radiant King; and he will bring peace and righteousness to this earth when he establishes his kingdom and reigns from Jerusalem. 
  • Revelation 19:9 Invited
    The Church as a whole will be invited to the wedding as a corporate being but we will also be invited as individuals, by virtue of our personal salvation that we have received.For many of us who are not usually invited to high-society events and who are often left out and behind, this comes as a blessing indeed!
  • Revelation 19:7 Eager Anticipation
    In the same way, we are called to look forward to the day when we meet with Christ Jesus, on the day that he returns in power and glory. He is our blessed hope and our lives lived here on earth should be directed towards this coming moment. 
  • Revelation 19:7 A Wedding!
    I pray that we will live out our salvation with fear and trembling, and walk closely with our Lord, that we might walk with confidence and reassurance, knowing that we will be warmly welcomed and honoured as a guest, wearing the white robes of righteousness.
