It’s the time of reckoning for the kingdom of the world. How does it all unravel?
Babylon the kingdom of this world will fall. It is the beginning of God’s judgment on a sinful world which as persecuted His servants.
In Revelation chapter 14 there are three fnal warnings of coming wrath. First the preaching of the gospel to people. Second the fall of Babylon and fnally the kingdom of the beast. This sets the order of end time events. Therefore when we come to chapters 17 and 18, which cover the fall of Babylon, we are going back in time.
