When Will Babylon Collapse

Rev 16(NKJV)

12   Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared.

13  And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

14  For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

15  “Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.”

16  And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon.

17   Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, “It is done!”

18  And there were noises and thunderings and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the earth.

19  Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And great Babylon was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.

20  Then every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.

21  And great hail from heaven fell upon men, each hailstone about the weight of a talent. Men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, since that plague was exceedingly great.

    When will Babylon the Great be destroyed? Before or after the start of the 1000 years? Reading Revelation 14 seems like After the start of the 1000 years. Thank you

      Una – Can you help by explaining what verse you are referring to in Revelation 14?

      I believe the 1,000 years begins with Christ’s return (Revelation 20).

      Let’s look at Revelation 18.

      Revelation 18:1-4 (NKJV) “1 After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory.
      2 And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird!
      3 “For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.”
      4 And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.”

      The word “angel” means “messenger.” This messenger coming out of heaven is the chief messenger of Jehovah, Jesus Christ. So at his return the denominational systems had been judged and it was time for the true Christians to come out of the denominational churches and into association together in Christian unity and liberty. The Church/State union and control was destroyed. This destruction is in stages.

      Just as Christ has body members, so does Satan. That is why Jesus said, “If Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself.” (Matt 12:26). Satan as “the god of this world” (2 Cor 4:4) has a vast evil spiritual government as his disposal. (Eph 6:12). In Revelation, the “dragon” represents civil power. The binding of Satan, the dragon, encompasses his empire and culminates with his personal restraint.

      This binding begins with Jesus second presence and occurs in 4 stages: (Rev 20:1-3)
      1) laid hold on the dragon
      2) cast him in the pit
      3) slammed it shut
      4) sealed him in tight

      After this, Satan “will not deceive the nation’s until the thousand years are finished.” Rev 20:3 His ability to deceive diminishes throughout the process until the final stage where he is sealed tight in the pit.

      We find a parallel to this when the “stone” (spiritual kingdom Dan 2:44) strikes the Gentile empire image of civil governments, which is destroyed in 4 stages as well.
      1) stone strikes image (vs 34)
      2) breaks images in pieces (vs 34)
      3) broken pieces of image crushed like chaff of summer threshing floors (vs 35)
      4) Wind blows chaff away (vs 35)

      We do see denominational church attendance continually declining. Babylon’s final destruction is near. We don’t know exactly when this process will be complete. However, it will be in this beginning part of the 1,000 years, not the end of it.

      I hope this helps.

        Hello,
        I was reading on into 18 vs. 9-24 and it seems that at 1st glance babylon is finally completely destroyed just prior to, or at the moment of the completion of the bride class (chap 19 vs. 1-20.) Does this seem to be logical or am I missing something? I am only recently re- studying this topic after waking up from Jw land…
