The Word – Rev 18-19

There are some that equate the reference to Babylon again in chapter 18 as an all-inclusive representation of Apostate Christianity. And there may be some truth to that allegorically. But remembering the opening verses of the book, we must insist that ti this audience, it is the clear pronouncement of judgement against Jerusalem for its own apostasy and rejection of the Son of God.

In Chapter 19 after the fall of Babylon, the rider on the white horse in verses 11 and following is clearly Jesus. he now goes out to defeat the enemy with a sharp sword, which comes from his mouth. And the fact that he is called “The Word of God” in verse 13 makes the inference clear – it the God’s word that will be used as the weapon.
