                        "THE BOOK OF REVELATION"
                            Chapter Eighteen
OBJECTIVES IN STUDYING THIS CHAPTER
1) To note the pronouncement and depiction of the fall of Babylon, the
   great city
2) To observe the reasons why Babylon would receive such terrible
   judgment
3) To ascertain the identity of Babylon, the great harlot
SUMMARY
In this chapter we find the fall of "Babylon the great" proclaimed, and
the great mourning over her by those in the world.  The fall of Babylon
is proclaimed by an angel with great authority, who illuminated the
earth with his glory.  The reasons for her fall include how the nations
and kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and how the
merchants have become rich through her abundance.  Meanwhile, a voice
from heaven calls for the people of God to come out of her lest they
receive the plagues to come upon her.  Her judgment will involve death,
mourning, famine, and utter destruction by fire, for it is the Lord God
who judges her (1-8).
The fall of Babylon is mourned by the kings of the earth who committed
fornication with her, and the merchants and sea-traders who had become
rich by her.  They all cry out "Alas, alas, that great city..." as they
observe her judgment.  They bemoan that in just one hour her riches
came to nothing and she has become desolate.  On the other hand, heaven
itself, along with the apostles and prophets, are called to rejoice,
because God has avenged them on her (9-20).
Finally, a mighty angel throws a large stone into sea to depict with
what great violence Babylon will be thrown down.  The sounds and sights
of music, crafts, even weddings will be gone.  The fall of Babylon is
justified, for her merchants were great, by her sorcery the nations
were deceived, and in her was found the blood of prophets, saints, and
all those slain on the earth (21-24).
What is this chapter describing?  If the date of the book suggested in
the introduction is correct (spring, 70 A.D.) , and Jerusalem is indeed
the "harlot", then this chapter likely refers to the destruction by the
Romans in August, 70 A.D.  This would be in harmony with 17:16, where
those who first supported the harlot eventually turned on her.  So it
was with Jerusalem, who depended upon the approval of the Roman
authorities to persecute the church, and later became the object of
Roman persecution herself.  Very fitting is the depiction of Jerusalem
as a harlot, for she who should have been a great spiritual city had
become a great commercial center by virtue of the roads that passed
through her between Europe, Asia and Africa.  Her spiritual adultery
was also manifested by rejecting the many prophets and apostles sent to
her (cf. Mt 23:31-39 with Re 17:6; 18:20,24; 19:2).

         a. Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen
         b. She has become...

            2) A prison for every foul spirit
            3) A cage for every unclean and hated bird
         c. With her...

            2) The kings of the earth have committed fornication
            3) The merchants of the earth have become rich  
   B. BY A VOICE FROM HEAVEN (4-8)
      1. Calling God's people to come out of her

         c. In the cup she has mixed, mix double for her
         d. To the degree she glorified herself and lived 
            luxuriously...
            1) Give her torment and sorrow
            2) For she says in heart that she is a queen and will not

         e. Her plagues will come in one day...
            1) Death, mourning, and famine

         torment, weeping and wailing...
         a. "Alas, alas, that great city that was clothed in fine 
            linen, purple, and scarlet, and adorned with gold and 
            precious stones and pearls!"
         b. "For in one hour such great riches came to nothing."
   C. BY THE TRADERS AND TRAVELERS ON THE SEA (17b-19)
      1. They stood at a distance, crying when they saw the smoke of 
         her burning, "What is like this great city?"
      2. Throwing dust on their heads, they cried out, weeping and
         wailing...
         a. "Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on
            the sea became rich by her wealth!"
         b. "For in one hour she is made desolate."

         b. Who then proclaims "Thus with violence the great city
            Babylon shall be thrown down, and shall not be found
            anymore."
      2. Neither shall be heard or seen in her...
         a. The sound of harpists, musicians, flutists, and trumpeters
         b. A craftsman of any craft
         c. The sound of a millstone
         d. The light of a lamp
