25: Heavenly Praise and Christ’s Victory (Rev 19:1-21)

The Basics


God had sent a sudden destruction on Babylon, which was full of fornications, blasphemy, luxuries, and boasting. At the fall of the great city of Babylon, the kings and merchants of the earth were left desolate. Then John heard voices of a great multitude in heaven praising God for His judgment and rejoicing over the marriage of the Lamb. Heaven also opened, and Christ with His armies went out to conquer the beast, the false prophet, and all their followers.

Key Verse

“And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, ‘Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns! Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready’” (19:6,7).
