Revelation 18:1–3 (ESV)
The Fall of Babylon
18 After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was made bright with his glory. 2 And he called out with a mighty
“Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great!
She has become a dwelling place for demons,
a haunt for every unclean spirit,
a haunt for every unclean bird,
for every unclean and detestable beast.
3 For all nations have drunk
the wine of the
passion of her sexual immorality,
and the kings of the earth have committed immorality with her,
and the merchants
of the earth have grown rich from the power of her luxurious living.”
The angel coming from heaven
is a holy angel that proclaims that all of Babylon (nonbelievers) have become evil and have sold out to the great prostitute and participated in sexual immorality. The earth has fallen. The process began in the Garden of Eden and will be totally
destroyed on the Last Day.
I pray: O Lord, I repent of my sins and want to do better. Help me
to walk according to your ways, to keep my eyes focused on you, and to trust in the saving faith you gave me. Amen.
