Chapter 18

Revelation 18:1 And after these things I saw ANOTHER ANGEL {angel/message concerning the rock/rider with a bow} come down from heaven, having GREAT POWER; and the EARTH {land of spiritual Canaan} was LIGHTENED with his GLORY{the glory of glowing wind/white horse that carries the rock from heaven to Earth}.

The angel in Revelation 18:1 represents the message concerning the rock that will shoot like an arrow from heaven to Earth. It is the fulfillment of the rider with bow on his white horse. The rock (represented by the rider) has great power and will glow as a gloriously bright light (represented by the white horse) to lighten the land, as it speedily moves through the atmosphere to impact the USA. The Earth mentioned in Revelation 18:1 represents the land of spiritual Canaan, where the seven-headed ten-horned beast (union of nations) dwells. The rock will impact the USA, which is the leading nation of the latter day Babylonian beast's kingdom.

*******

Revelation 18:2 And HE {rock} CRIED MIGHTYLY {as the rock pierces like an arrow through the bowed atmosphere} with a STRONG VOICE {of thunder}, saying, BABYLON the GREAT {representing the USA's capital and nation} is FALLEN{according to the first witness' written prediction}, is FALLEN {according to the second witness' written prediction}, and is become the HABITATION {dwelling place} of DEVILS {people who will have refused to leave the USA during the sign of Jonah}, and the HOLD of EVERY FOUL SPIRIT {mind}, and a CAGE {spiritual prison} of EVERY UNCLEAN and HATEFUL BIRD{symbolizing people whose minds are imprisoned to the ways of this world}.

The rock will pierce Earth's atmosphere with a great sound of thunder, as it descends and impacts the USA. It cries like an eagle descending upon its prey, as it states that latter day Babylon “is fallen” (according to the first witness' written prediction in the scroll of life) “is fallen” (according to the second witness' written prediction in the scroll of life). The rock's impact causes the fall of the USA's ruling capital city and nation. At that time, the USA will be the place (habitation) where only rebellious people remain, who tempted (as devils) others to reject the two witnesses' predictions. The USA will have become a snare (cage) for wrong thinking and hateful people (equated with unclean and hateful spiritual birds), in whose mind is a bad (foul) belief that is contrary to the two witnesses' predictions. These rebellious people in the USA will have failed to flee the USA during the sign of Jonah.

*******

Revelation 18:3 For ALL NATIONS have DRUNK of the WINE {USA's ideals that it envisions for the world's future} of the WRATH {old Babylon used force/anger, but latter day Babylon uses deception or force} of HER {USA's capital} FORNICATION {with other nations}, and the KINGS {union of nations} of the earth {land of spiritual Canaan} have COMMITTED FORNICATION {foreign nations trade their substance within her wide open gates} with HER {USA's capital and nation}, and the MERCHANTS of the earth are WAXED RICH through the ABUNDANCE of HER {USA's capital and nation} DELICACIES {opulence}.

The USA has caused all nations to accept (spiritually drink) the ideals (spiritual wine) that the USA has envisioned for the world's future. Most nations have been deceived into accepting the USA's ideals, while others are forced through military action or imposed sanctions to force non complying nations to accept the USA's ideals.

The kings of the Earth (land/Earth of spiritual Canaan) represent the union of nations, whose merchants have grown rich by trading (committing fornication) with their goods in the USA's land of opulence.

*******

Revelation 18:4 And I heard ANOTHER VOICE {of thunder caused by the meteor entering Earth's atmosphere to begin the sign of Jonah} from heaven, saying, COME OUT OF HER {USA's capital and nation}, MY {scroll of life's} PEOPLE {first and second groups of redeemed}, that ye be not PARTAKERS of HER SINS {that she committed against the two witnesses, living messengers, and the believers}, and that YE RECEIVE NOT OF HER PLAGUES {released by a rock’s impact after the sign of Jonah}.

The verse in Revelation 18:4 reveals that the voice in heaven is of the meteor that pierces Earth's atmosphere, causing a loud sound of thunder to be heard in the atmosphere. This meteor will impact the USA at the end of the third 2300-day period. For the next 3½ days is the sign of Jonah. In that time, the people who believe the scroll of life's predictions will be called out of the USA's capital and nation by the meteor's thundering sound in the atmosphere. As they flee the USA, they will have placed on the front (forehead) of their mind the predictions (mark) written beneath the seventh seal of the scroll of life. These saints of the spiritual temple (seven angels' messages) will flee the USA during the sign of Jonah, so that they do not receive of the plagues that the USA's capital and nation will receive when the rock impacts the USA after the 3½ days. The leadership in the USA's capital sins by rejecting the written warnings proclaimed by the two witnesses (Michael and Gabriel) in the scroll of life, which causes the USA's people who do likewise to receive of the impacted rock's plagues (effects) that the USA will encounter.

*******

Revelation 18:5 For her SINS {of sinning against the two witnesses' written warnings in the scroll of life} have REACHED {before the judgment will have begun} unto HEAVEN {of the high and lifted up lava erupted super volcano}, and God {scroll of life} hath REMEMBERED {when the scroll of life’s written record is being opened after the initial 1,00 years of the judgment} her INIQUITIES {of rejecting the two witnesses' warnings which she committed prior to the judgment}.

The sins of the leadership in the USA's capital pertains to them rejecting the warning voices of the two written witnesses in the scroll of life. The fulfillment of the predictions will have reached up into the sky when the super volcano swelled to heaven and erupted with lava covering the USA and the world. The scroll of life will have recorded the sins of the USA that reached up as a lava covered mountain to the sky before the judgment will have begun. During the judgment when the scroll of life's record is being reviewed, God (scroll of life) will have remembered and replayed the event where the super volcano had swelled up to the sky and erupted with lava.

*******

Revelation 18:6 REWARD {repay} HER {USA's capital and nation} even as SHE REWARDED YOU{living messengers and people}, and DOUBLE unto her DOUBLE {one sword with two edges, according to the first edge/first witness' written predictions and second edge/second witness' written predictions} according to HER WORKS: in the CUP which SHE hath FILLED FILL to HER DOUBLE {hence, Babylon is fallen, is fallen according to the two witnesses' predictions in the scroll of life}.

In past generations, the messengers of Elohiym with the people who believed their message were rejected, mocked, beaten, imprisoned and most times killed for trying to warn the nation and people of impending doom. In our day, the leadership and people of the USA have rejected and persecuted the two witnesses' written predictions and those who believe the two witnesses' written words of warning. At the end of the third 2300-day period when the sign of Jonah begins, the two witnesses' predictions will be lying dead in the USA's capital, having been totally rejected by the USA's leadership and given no respect as being true. The two witnesses' predictions from the scroll of life that are rejected, persecuted and killed will arise to life at the rock's impact. As the USA's capital and nation treated the two witnesses is how the two witnesses' revived predictions will treat the USA's capital and nation. During the judgment, the review of the scroll of life will show the USA's capital and nation receiving twice the impacted rock's plagues: once from the record of events as seen by the first witness (Michael), and a second time from the record of events as seen by the second witness (Gabriel). According to her (USA's capital and nation) sins that she filled in the cup full of rejecting, persecuting, imprisoning and killing the two witnesses' visions for this world's future and the saints that believe the visions, so shall each witness' record of events be fulfilled on the USA's capital and nation.

Jeremiah 50:15 SHOUT {referring to the sound of a meteor shower} against HER {USA's capital and nation} round about: she hath given her hand: her foundations are fallen, her walls are thrown down: for it is the vengeance of the LORD {scroll of life}: take vengeance upon her; as she hath done, do unto her.

Jeremiah 51:24 And I {scroll of life}will render unto {latter day} Babylon and to all the inhabitants of Chaldea all their evil that they have done in ZION {being the spiritual temple of seven angels visions} in your sight, saith the LORD.

*******

Revelation 18:7 HOW MUCH she hath GLORIFIED HERSELF, and LIVED DELICIOUSLY {opulently}, so much TORMENT and SORROW GIVE HER {USA’s capital and nation}: for SHE SAITH IN HER HEART, I sit a QUEEN {capital of nations}, and AM NO WIDOW {has no fear of losing her nation/husband}, and SHALL SEE NO SORROW {from invading nations taking her children/cities and states}.

The USA's capital and nation has glorified herself above all nations, living opulently. She says in her heart that she is the queen that sits and reigns over all nations of the world. Her ideals that she envisions for the world's future makes her believe that she will not become a widow by losing her nation (husband), or that she will see sorrow of losing her cities (daughters) and states (sons) to a foreign invader.

Isaiah 47:7 And THOU {USA’s capital} saidst, I shall be a LADY {reigning capital city} for ever: so that thou didst not lay THESE THINGS {pertaining to the seven angels' written warnings} to thy heart, neither didst remember the latter end of IT {warning message}.

*******

Revelation 18:8 Therefore shall HER {USA's capital and nation} PLAGUES come in ONE DAY {the day when the impacted rock opens the super volcano in the USA}, DEATH {by the impacted rock and impacts of the following meteor shower}, and MOURNING {for those who died by impacts and ensuing anarchy}, and FAMINE {caused by erupting smoke and hot ash that cover sunlight and devour agriculture}; and SHE {USA's capital and nation is here likened to Sodom} shall be UTTERLY BURNED {five months after the rock's impact} with FIRE{erupting lava from the opened super volcano}: for STRONG is the Lord God {scroll of life} who JUDGETH HER.

In one day, the USA's capital and nation will be plagued by the impacted rock's affects. Her (USA's capital and nation's) plagues of death by impacting meteors following the rock, mourning of the dead who died in the impacts and ensuing anarchy, and famine begin on the day the impacted rock opens the super volcano in the USA. Five months after these plagues, the USA's capital and nation will be utterly burned with flowing lava from the super volcano. The vision in Revelation 18:8 will be shown from the scroll of life when the scroll of life is being reviewed during the judgment. At that time, the scroll of life's written record will be showing the judgment that the USA's capital and nation had already received before the judgment will have begun. The strength of the scroll of life (God) is its ability to replay exactly the events that it will have already recorded.

*******

Revelation 18:9 And the KINGS {representing the union of nations} of the EARTH {spiritual Canaan}, who have COMMITTED FORNICATION {trading their goods within her wide open gates} and LIVED DELICIOUSLY {opulently} WITH HER, shall BEWAIL her, and LAMENT for her, when they shall SEE the SMOKE {issuing from the opened super volcano} of HER BURNING{when the impacted rock opens the super volcano in the USA},

The union of nations are represented by the kings (kingdoms) of spiritual Canaan's land (Earth). These nations and their merchants are heavily invested in trading within the USA, having lived opulently with the USA. When the impacted rock opens the super volcano in the USA, the union of nations will see the smoke of her burning. The fall of the USA will cause the union of nations to bewail and lament because of the impacted rock's plagues inflicting the USA.

*******

Revelation 18:10 STANDING AFAR OFF {from the time when the impacted rock has opened the super volcano} for the FEAR of HER {USA's capital and nation} TORMENTS, saying Alas, alas, that GREAT CITY BABYLON {confusion}, that MIGHTY CITY! For in ONE HOUR {end of latter day Babylon’s/confusion’s one hour reign while in spiritual Canaan} is thy JUDGMENT COME {as shown from the scroll of life’s record}.

From the time the impacted rock opens the super volcano in the USA, the union of nations will be standing afar because of the fear concerning the plagues inflicting the USA's capital and nation. The USA will be in a state of torment because of the impacted rock's ensuing plagues of death, mourning, and famine. The union of nations will be sorrowful because of the great city's (USA's capital and nation's) torments. The judgments of the USA's capital happen at the end of her one hour reign in spiritual Canaan over the kingdom of latter day Babylon. The second half hour of this one hour reign in spiritual Canaan is when latter day Babylon reigns for 1290 days as the number eight kingdom, which is the image of the number seven kingdom. These 1290 days end 3½ days after the third 2300-day period when the rock impact the USA.

*******

Revelation 18:11 And the MERCHANTS {of the union of nations} of the EARTH {land of spiritual Canaan} shall WEEP and MOURN over HER {USA’s capital and nation's fall by an impacted rock opening the super volcano}; for NO MAN {no state or nation} buyeth their merchandise any more:

The merchants of the union of nations will weep and mourn over the USA's torment because of the impacted rock that opened the super volcano. When the impacted rock has opened the super volcano in the USA, no US state (no man) will be buying the merchandise of merchants, making the merchants weep and mourn.

*******

Revelation 18:12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,

*******

Revelation 18:13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.

*******

Revelation 18:14 And the fruits that thy soul lusteth after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.

All sorts of goods, produce, and services are bought and sold within the states of the USA. However, these things will never again be bought and sold when ruin, anarchy, and famine prevail in the fallen USA's capital and nation.

*******

Revelation 18:15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by HER{her/USA’s capital and nation are here likened to the city Tyre}, shall stand afar off for the fear of her TORMENT {of the impacted rock's plagues}, weeping and wailing,

The foreign merchants of the union of nations that were made rich by selling their goods, produce, and services in the USA will be weeping and wailing. The merchants will stay far from the ruined USA because of the USA's torment by the impacted rock's effects plaguing the USA.

*******

Revelation 18:16 And saying, Alas, alas, that GREAT CITY {the USA’s capital and nation is here likened to the city of old Jerusalem} that was CLOTHED in FINE LINEN, and PURPLE, and SCARLET, and DECKED with GOLD, and PRECIOUS STONES, and PEARLS {adornments of old Jerusalem’s temple}!

The merchants will be grieving over the fall of the USA's capital and nation. The USA's capital is that great latter day city that is extremely wealthy. This great city is dressed as a queen that sat and reigned over the seven-headed ten-horned beast (union of nations).

*******

Revelation 18:17 For in ONE HOUR {end of the one hour reign of latter day Babylon in spiritual Canaan} so GREAT RICHES {in the USA} is come to NOUGHT {from the time the impacted rock opens the super volcano in the USA}. And every SHIPMASTER {leader}, and all the COMPANY {merchants}in SHIPS {representing capitals of nations}, and SAILORS {people of these capitals/ships}, and as many as trade by sea {union of nations/combined spiritual rivers}, stood afar off {from the ruined USA’s capital and nation, which is likened to the city Tyre/Tyrus},

At the end of latter day Babylon's one hour reign in spiritual Canaan, the rock will have impacted the USA and opened the super volcano bringing instant ruin to the USA. From that time, the leaders (being spiritual shipmasters) in the capitals of the union of nations, merchants (being the company in the ships), and the people (spiritual sailors) of the capitals (spiritual ships) will remain away from the ruined USA.

*******

Revelation 18:18 And CRIED when they saw the SMOKE of HER {USA's capital is likened to old spiritual Sodom’s destruction} BURNING, saying, What city is like unto THIS {USA's capital} great city!

*******

Revelation 18:19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that GREAT CITY {USA’s capital is here likened to the city Tyre}, wherein were made rich all that had SHIPS {representing the merchants of the union of nations} in the SEA {representing the union of nations/spiritual rivers of latter day Babylon's kingdom/spiritual sea} by reason of her costliness! For in ONE HOUR {end of the one hour reign of the latter day Babylonian beast in spiritual Canaan} is SHE {USA's capital and nation} made desolate.

The leaders of nations, merchants, and people that were made rich by selling their goods, produce and services in the USA will be crying over the destruction of the great city (USA's capital and nation). At the end of the USA's one hour reign over the latter day Babylonian beast (kingdom/union of nations) in spiritual Canaan, the impacted rock will have caused an earthquake such as never happened, opening a super volcano in the USA. Erupting smoke and ash of her burning will cover sunlight over the USA. Following the rock are meteors of ice and fiery rocks that will destroy the remaining infrastructure in the USA. The ruined and desolate USA's states will be tormented with death, anarchy and famine.

*******

Revelation 18:20 REJOICE {no more silence in heaven} over HER {USA's capital and nation}, thou HEAVEN {being the high and lifted up lava covered super volcano, upon which will be new Jerusalem with the redeemed therein, and ye HOLY APOSTLES {first group of redeemed} and PROPHETS {who manifested in every generation}; for God {scroll of life's review} hath AVENGED YOU on HER.

The verse in Revelation 18:20 is happening during the review of the scroll of life in the time of the judgment. At that time, heaven represents the high and lifted up lava covered super volcano on which will be sitting new Jerusalem. The three groups of redeemed will have entered the fiery ensign to be within new Jerusalem before the whole world will have been covered with lava. When the scroll of life's review shows the USA being ruined by the impacted rock's plagues, God (scroll of life) is avenging the redeemed within new Jerusalem, the holy apostles, and the prophets. The three groups of redeemed will be rejoicing that they accepted the scroll of life's visions concerning the world's future, instead of accepting the USA's ideals (spiritual wine cup) that the USA envisioned for the world's future.

*******

Revelation 18:21 And a MIGHTY ANGEL {representing the seventh angel's message} took up a STONE {representing the rock} like a great millstone, and CAST IT {impacting rock} into the SEA {spiritual sea/union of nations of the latter day Babylonian beast in spiritual Canaan}, saying, Thus with VIOLENCE shall that GREAT CITY {USA's capital and nation} BABYLON {confusion}be THROWN DOWN, and shall be found no more at all.

The mighty angel in Revelation 18:21 represents the seventh angel's message pertaining to a stone (rock) impacting the USA. The spiritual sea (kingdom of latter day Babylon) is created by the combined spiritual rivers (representing the union of nations, of which the USA is one of these nations). The great city of confusion (Babylon) in our day represents the USA's capital and nation. By the violence of an impacted rock in the kingdom (spiritual sea) of latter day Babylon (that causes a massive earthquake in the USA's land) is how the great city and her nation will be thrown down. When the scroll of life shows the review of the fall of the USA's capital and nation by the impacted rock's plagues that culminate in a lake of fire, the USA will never again exist.

Jeremiah 51:62 Then shalt thou say, O LORD, thou hast spoken against THIS PLACE {latter day Babylon/USA's capital and nation}, to cut it off, that none shall remain in it, neither man nor beast, but that it shall be desolate for ever.

Jeremiah 51:63 And it shall be, when thou hast made an end of reading this book, that thou shalt bind a STONE{representing the rock} to it, and cast it into the midst of EUPHRATES {Euphrates represents the leading nation/USA of latter day Babylon}:

Jeremiah 51:64 And thou shalt say, Thus shall {latter day} Babylon(USA's capital and nation} sink, and shall not rise from the evil that I {scroll of life} will bring upon her: and they shall be weary. Thus far are the words of Jeremiah.

*******

Revelation 18:22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found anymore in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;

From the time of the rock's impacted in the USA's land, all music, entertainment, sounds of industries, work and general life that existed prior to the rock's impact will cease forever.

*******

Revelation 18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the BRIDEGROOM{latter day Moses' message} and of the BRIDE {apostles and disciples} shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy MERCHANTS were the GREAT MEN {great nations} of the EARTH {representing the land of spiritual Canaan}; for by thy SORCERIES {technological military wonders} were ALL NATIONS DECEIVED {to accept the ideals that the USA envisioned for the world's future}.

The visions (light) of the first witness (candle) and second witness (candle) will never again be given to the USA's capital and nation. Also the voice (message) of the latter day messenger (bridegroom) with the voice of the apostles and disciples (bride) will never again be heard in the USA. After the rock impacts the USA's land. The USA's foreign merchants of the union of nations were the great men (representing nations) of the USA's capital and nation, instead of making the two witnesses the great men according to their visions for the world's future. By the technological military sorceries of the USA were all nations deceived in accepting the USA's ideals that it envisions for the world's future.

*******

Revelation 18:24 And in HER {USA’s capital is here likened to the old city Jerusalem} was FOUND the BLOOD of PROPHETS, and of SAINTS, and of ALL that were SLAIN upon the EARTH {land of spiritual Canaan}.

In the past generations, the living prophets, apostles, and disciples were rejected and killed by the orders of the leadership in old Jerusalem's capital and deceived tribes that professed to believe in God. The same mind and ways is found in the leadership of the USA and the deceived nations and peoples. The USA's leadership and states will reject, kill, and give no respect to the two witnesses' predictions concerning the USA's imminent end by a rock's impact, as revealed by latter day Moses and believed by the latter day saints.
