The fall of Babylon
The worldly great city is destroyed. The merchants’ wealth is lost. All the glitter and glamour is lost. The clothes, the jewels, the furniture, the spices, the fruit longed for?
But God has always told us not to store up treasures on earth. They tarnish and wither and die. What is it that that God wants from us? What is it that Jesus wants? Babylon was judged and found wanting. Hence Revelation is a lesson for all of us.
I worship you King of kings and Lord of lords
How many parables can you think of where this message is repeated?
