    Answers from Revelation 18 and part of 19

  • Who might be the messenger in 18:1?
  • Although it is not clearly said, some feel this could be Jesus Christ.

  • What is the message to the churches in verses 2-9? How does this message apply to us today? How will it apply during the end time events?
  • Do not take part in the sins of “Babylon”. The sins listed in this chapter are tied in to materialism which is probably, for Americans at least, the most dangerous sin that we face today. During the endtimes there will be the added danger of aligning one’s self with the Beast (Antichrist).

  • Why is Babylon beloved by the nations of the earth according to verses 10-19?
  • She brings prosperity to the world.

  • Why specifically is Babylon being judged (18:20-19:4)?
  • Her persecution of God’s people.

  • What is the next event after the destruction of Babylon (19:5-10)? Who is the central figure of the marriage supper (verses 9-10)?
  • The marriage supper of the Lamb (the coming of Christ for His people) is the next event after Armageddon. One could say it actually occurs in conjunction with Armageddon. Christ is the central figure of the marriage supper.

  • What is the significance of the white horses (verses 11, 14)?
  • White horses are a symbol of victory in war.

  • What do we learn about Jesus Christ in verses 11-16?
  • He is the judge of the earth. He is above all in holiness and authority.

    What is the reaction of the two angels to the first three bowls or vials of God’s wrath (verses 5-7)?

    • They recognized that God’s judgment on the earth is a righteous judgment. 

    What is the reaction of those being judged in verses 8-11 and 21?

    • They blasphemed God and did not repent.

    What is the purpose of the sixth bowl and what is the connection of the three frogs to this judgment (verses 12-16)? Do they cause these events or are they simply players whom God ultimately controls?

    • The purpose is the gather the kings of the earth (read here nations as represented by their armies) for the battle against Christ known as Armageddon. Although the demonic influence of Satan and the two beasts on the surface influence these events, they are ultimately brought together by God. 

    What indicates that there will be believers left at the end of this time (verse 15)?

    • The command to watch and be ready for this event of Armageddon.

    How are the cities, islands, and mountains destroyed (verses 17-20)?

    • By the ultimate earthquake.

    Chapters 17-18 seem to be simply an expanded description of the judgment of the seventh bowl. What proof in chapter 16 is there for this statement (see verse 19)?

    • The judgment on Babylon is an integral part of the seventh bowl. 

    Revelation 17:1-6 is a vision of judgment on Babylon. Verses 7-13 is the explanation of the vision. Although we are not exactly sure of the identity of the city, what is the relationship of this city to the Antichrist?

    • It is his center of power.

    What is the involvement of the ten kings during the days described in this chapter (verses 12-18)?

    1. They will receive their authority to rule from the beast.
    2. They will war against God.
    3. They will turn on Babylon and destroy her (possibly turning against the beast also, although that is not explicitly stated).

    In Revelation 16 it becomes official – The Wrath of God October 3, 2007
