PROPHECY BOOTCAMP: Our topic for today is titled “The Great Harlot and the Scarlet Beast (Part 2)” from Dr. Ed Hindson’s book “Revelation: Unlocking the Future.”

Whether one view’s Babylon as the worldly enterprise of John’s day, our day, or some future day, Beasley-Murray’s observation is valid: “The contrasts [which we discussed in our last episode] will have been readily perceived by John’s original readers, and will have served to emphasize the necessity that they should ‘depart’ from Babylon, so as not to share in its fate, and that they maintain their lot in the city which will endure forever.”

The question often debated among evangelicals is whether this “Babylon” is the Babylon of ancient times revived in the Last Days or whether it is symbolic of Rome revived in the Last Days. Either way, those who view the Revelation as a prophecy of the future must look for a future Babylon or future Rome as the fulfillment of this prediction. In this regard, let us consider several key factors.

If you are a student of prophecy, I entreat you never to let it be said that prophetic study prevents practical diligence. If you do believe that the day is really approaching, then labor actively to provoke others unto love and good works.

— Seven Bowls of Wrath

The fall of Babylon has already been announced in Revelation 14:8. Its doom has already been certified. Now the seer fills in the details, taking all of chapter 17-18 to do so. Both ecclesiastical and political Babylon come into view in the things that follow. The city itself is pictured as a drunken harlot who is about to fall into judgment. She drains the cup of God’s wrath, only to be deceived by the very beast that carries her.

— Seven Bowls of Wrath, Continued

The seven plagues, or seven bowls of wrath, descend upon the earth in rapid succession. Each bowl is poured out by a specific angel who is commanded by “a loud voice from the temple” to pour out the “wrath of God” on the earth.

The first bowl of wrath. The “loud voice” is not of an angel but appears to be the voice of God, as shown in Revelation 15:8, since no one—and that would include angels at this point—can enter the temple of the Lord. This is the same voice heard in Revelation 16:17. When the first bowl of wrath is poured out on the earth, “a loathsome and malignant sore” comes upon all those who have aligned themselves with the beast by taking his mark and worshipping his image. The sores are ulcers, cancerous lesions, or suppurated wounds that infect everyone on earth except the righteous. Such running, puss-like ailments seem similar to other sores described in Scripture. The descriptions imply painful or agonizing ulcers that resist healing.

I say nothing as to the time when these things shall take place. I object, on principle, to all dogmatism about dates. All I insist upon is this — that there is a great change before us all — a change for the earth, a change for man, and above all, a change for the saints.

— Seven Bowls of Wrath

There are obvious parallels between the trumpet judgments and the bowl judgments. We have already observed these in chapter 6. The basic similarities have to do with the objects of each of the first six judgments (earth, sea, rivers, sun, darkness, Euphrates River). In both cases, the seventh judgment involves a voice announcing the finality of the judgment, followed by lightning, thunder, hail, and an earthquake.

There is a great change yet to come on this world, and a change we ought to keep constantly before our mind’s eye.

That change is a change of masters. That old rebel, the devil, and all his adherents, shall be cast down. The Lord Jesus, and all His saints, shall be exalted and raised to honor. “The kingdoms of this world” shall “become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ.”
