Rejoice you Saints!

Scripture reading for December 23rd:  Revelation 18

Key Scriptures for over-comers:  Revelation 18:19-21  “. . .and with weeping and mourning they will cry out: “‘Woe! Woe, O great city, where all who had ships on the sea became rich through her wealth!  In one hour she has been brought to ruin!  Rejoice over her, O heaven!  Rejoice, saints and apostles and prophets!  God has judged her for the way she treated you.’ Then a mighty angel picked up a boulder the size of a large millstone, and threw it into the sea, and said:  “With such violence the great city of Babylon will the thrown down, never to be found again.”  

The final judgment of God on the wicked of earth falls on the great city of Babylon, the symbol and center of all wickedness and false religion.  The Lamb, King of kings, destroys the city and wicked in one hour causing great mourning on the earth but a call to rejoice for those in heaven who were waiting for God’s justice!  A visual of this event was given John by a mighty angel throwing a boulder into the sea of humanity and pronouncing the end of rebellion!   It confirmed an earlier prophesy in Jeremiah 51:60-64.

Observations for over-comers:  Over-comers can rest assured that the Lamb will justly judge the earth and Satan, once and for all time!  “Jeremiah had written on a scroll about all the disasters that would come upon Babylon—all that had been recorded concerning Babylon.  . . .When you finish reading this scroll, tie a stone to it and throw it into the Euphrates. Then say, ‘So will Babylon sink to rise no more. . .”  (Jeremiah 51:60, 63-64)
