Fall of Babylon Announced

Angels announce the judicial sentence of God on “Babylon” and the “inhabitants of the earth,” but “rest” awaits the faithful followers of Jesus .  Next, “ another angel ” announced the “ fall of Babylon .” He was followed by “ a third angel ” who pronounced the judicial sentence on the men who gave allegiance to the “ beast from the sea .” The passage uses Old Testament language from pronouncements against Sodom and “ Gog and Magog .” In contrast to the impenitent, the “ saints ” look forward to “ rest .” - [ Photo by  Jonny Gios  on Unsplash ].

Everlasting Gospel - Final Harvests

Whether one follows the Lamb or the Beast, one will reap everlasting consequences in the final harvest  -  Revelation 14:6-7 .  The preceding sections presented two very different groups - the “ inhabitants of the earth ” that rendered homage to the “ beast ,” and the 144,000  priests of God , the “ first-fruits ” of the earth purchased by the blood of the “ Lamb .” Now, an angelic herald issues the final summons to humanity while time remains before the “ final hour .” - [ Photo by  Luca  on Unsplash ].
