Revelation 1

Revelation 21:1-27

In these two last chapters of the book of Revelation is very clear to us at ( verse 5) ” Behold , I make all things new .” Here we see that these new things will be part of the eternal home of the believer.

New heaven and a new earth

la nueva jerusalen 1

Revelation ( 21:1-8 )

I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth passed away , and the sea was no more . 2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God , prepared as a bride adorned for her marido.3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying , Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men , and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.4 wipe every tear from their eyes , and death shall be no , nor will there be mourning , nor crying, nor pain ; for the former things pasaron.5 And he that sat upon the throne said , Behold , I make all things new . He said to me , Write: for these words are trustworthy and verdaderas.6 And he said, It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega , the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring water life.7 who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be my son 8 But the cowardly, unbelieving , abominable, murderers , sexually immoral, sorcerers , idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death .

” God will remove all sin  and destructive behavior from the old earth . ” And this does not tend the least doubt as well is that this chapter begins .

The fiery trial through which all things are judged produce this renewal of the old earth and the old heaven . The sea will exist no more , we do not know exactly how will the new water system be, if we would have rivers , seas, for sure God has already prepared the perfect new system for feeding plants and fill the seas if we’ll ever have them. This wonderful new place that God has prepared for us , death no longer exist and God will wipe away every tear from our eyes, no more tears or pain, the old way has passed !!  But the best of all  and even more glorious is that we will dwell with the Lord and be His people , we will be his children and He our father. This same word that God says ” It is made” is the same as our Jesus said at the time of his death when he said “It is finished .” He is the Alpha and the Omega being this ( the first and last word of the Greek alphabet ) . In ( verse 8) states that we can not all get into this new creation of God, for those who would not believe in Christ, who never turned away from sin never will be able to see this wonderful beautiful and glorious place.

The new Jerusalem

la nueva jerusalen 2

Revelation ( 21:9-14 )

9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues , and talked with me , saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife. 10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God , 11 Having the glory of God. And its light was like a precious stone, like a jasper , clear as crystal . 12 And had a great, high wall with twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon , which are of the twelve tribe of the children of Israel : 13 On the east three gates, on the north three gates, on the south three gates on the west three gates . 14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them the twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb .

If we pay close attention to ( verse 2) we see that the new Jerusalem comes down from heaven , it is a suggestion as to describe a heavenly city with new people of God which will be a city on standing on air on the land , and this will be for over a thousand years called the  “Millennium ” it is obvious that the new Jerusalem unites peoples from the OT and NT. The twelve tribe mentioned here with the names of each of them recorded in each of the twelve gates are the chosen twelve tribes of God.

Dimensions of the new city of Jerusalem

la nueva jerusalen 3

Revelation ( 21:15-23 )

15 And he that talked with me had a measuring rod of gold to measure the city, its gates and its wall. 16 And the city lieth foursquare , and the length is as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs : the length , height and width are equal. 17 And he measured its wall , one hundred forty-four cubits , the measure of man , which is of an angel. 18 The construction of its wall was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass 19 and the foundations of the city wall were adorned with every precious stone . The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald, 20 the fifth onyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz , the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, the twelfth, amatiste.21 the twelve gates were twelve pearls: each individual gate was of one pearl . And the street of the city was pure gold like transparent glass . 22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty is its temple , and the Lamb . 23 The city had no need of sun or moon to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it , and the Lamb is its lamp.

Here we are given  the exact measurements and dimensions of this glorious city , which surpasses all human imagination. ” And the city lieth foursquare, (meaning that this city will be the same for all angles ) and has a length equal to the breadth : and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs : the length , the height and width are equal. ” Any measure gives us to understand that is a perfect cube shiny ” holy place ” with the glory of God that is illuminating to this perfect and holy city .

The new heavenly nation

la nueva jerusalen 4

Revelation ( 21:24-27 )

24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it . 25 Its gates will never be shut by day: for there shall be no night . 26 And they shall bring the glory and honor of the nations into it . 27 not enter into it anything that defiles , or causes an abomination and a lie: but they which are written in the book of life of the Lamb .

Only the light of God will exist in this city , there will be no more darkness, for is the night significance of sadness, crying , death, pain , and as no longer exists darkness in this glorious city but only in the light of the glory of God wll be enough to be in port . Doors will no longer be closed,  not ever , no longer there will be any fear cause all devil minded has disappeared and all evil has already been defeated . And this renewed glory city will be inhabited by many nations and millions of people will be living it ,  worshiping forever and ever the only true God.

Revelation 19:1-21

apocalipsis 20 images

Revelation 19:1- 8 

After these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying : Alleluia ! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God, 2 because his judgments are true and righteous because He has judged the great harlot who corrupted the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand of it.3 again they said : Alleluia ! And her smoke rose up for ever and siglos.4 and the elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God that sat on the throne, saying : Amen ! ! Hallelujah 5 Then a voice came from the throne , saying, Praise our God, all his servants, and ye that fear him , both small and grandes.6 And I heard as the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying : Alleluia , for the Lord God Omnipotent reigns ! 7 Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, because they have the marriage of the Lamb, and his wife has prepared . 8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen clean and white : for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.

This is the final Jesus will give earthly armies. Here in these verses we can see the great victory of his heavenly army.   We see a great multitude in heaven saying, Hallelujah ! this worship is given with the return of Jesus Christ to earth .  Hallelujah means the highest praise to  Jehovah, and  Hallelujah is also an expression that indicates joy , especially because something has happened that is expected or wanted for some time.

As we read in chapter 18 sin has finally been judged, we have read the fall of Babylon and the merchants of the earth mourned , but here we see the heavens rejoice .

The main source of all confusion and  religious lies was Babylon with his love for God but their worship was apostate rather false idols, this also caused the death of multitudes of God’s saints , but have seen their destruction. in verses 5-6 we see all the voices that have joined praising God because He is God and that is on the throne. Worthy is The all praise and glory to the Lord God Omnipotent reigns ! . Now,  in verse 7 we see the bride as the wife . Interestingly we see, that the marriage of the Lamb is not depicted as the King , giving us to understand that even being King , He will be the Lamb until eternity. Here , we see how the master and the high price he paid for us. The wife was ready , meaning that we must prepare to get  to the wedding of the Lamb . And this happens at the tribunal of Christ , when every stain and wrinkle I taken off  the bride before becoming the wife. The wife gets to heaven by the grace of God not by works or deeds , but although every believer will reach to heaven  we will be judged by the tribunal of Christ by our earth faithfulness . Fine linen was given for the bride to get dressed , serious sparkling clean for her  obedience and righteousness of all the saints.

 The marriage supper of the Lamb

las bodas

9 And he saith unto me , Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he said to me, These are true words of God.10 I fell at his feet to worship him . And he said to me , do not : I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus . Worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. 11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. 12 His eyes are like blazing fire, and on His head many diadems, having a name written that no one knew except Himself . 13 He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies in heaven , clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. 15 Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations , and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God . 16 On his robe and on his thigh a name written : KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS .

” Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of God”
In verse 11 , the heavens opened, and behold a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. Here we see the white horse and whose riding comes with justice and fight, fight with whom ? He first comes with his heavenly army , all of whom are dressed in fine linen, white and very clean which followed him with white horses. So, finally you have exited the Lamb to judge and make the final war on earth. We no longer see the lamb riding a donkey but riding humble but fierce a white horse . He no longer carries the crown of thorns , but a crown of gold, and his eyes are no longer filled with tears but they were like flames of fire, and flames of fire comes out of His mouth, and words of grace was not what he said but justice and victory! . Christ is coming to the great battle of Armageddon .

The announcement of judgment on the earth

17 And I saw an angel standing in standing in the sun , and cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in mid heaven , Come and congregate for the great supper of God, 18 that you may eat the flesh of kings and captains , and the flesh of mighty men, of horses and their riders , and the flesh of all people, free and slave, small and great. 19 And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to make war against the rider on the horse and against his army. 20 And the beast was taken , and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone . 21 And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of the rider on the horse , and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

We already saw the wedding , we saw his bride dressed and ready for the big wedding of the Lamb , but in this chapter we see the great day of Armageddon too.
The battle will not be long for Christ comes out of heaven with every victory and comes to destroy their enemies in an instant. ( 2Th 1). See ( ver 18) where it says park eat meat , man is only flesh and never will win over the power of God which for eternity flesh has also been condemned and never will please God.

The hosts of this land is the European federation which are the ten kingdoms of Europe, these kingdoms that have risen against Christ. , Such as the East, Egypt and Russia. And it is in the Mount ” Megiddo ” which is also knows as the ” Armageddon”  where they meet in the battlefield which is the largest in the world. Christ destroys only by his word which is the sword that comes out of his mouth. ( Heb 4:12). Every man who refused to listen to his word will die and by his own word, all will fall dead. All followers of the beast which allowed to be marked with the number of the beast are all sealed for that terrible judgment day . Not only Christ will destroy the beast and his army but also the false prophet and launched into hell itself . And Satan will be apprehended and  thrown into the abyss. For this we will read it in Chapter  ( 20:1-3 )

Revelation 18:1-24

The fall of Babylon
The voice of the fall of Babylon trial 

caida de babilonia

After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was lightened with his glory. 2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great , and is become the habitation of devils , and the hold of every foul spirit , and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird . 3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication , and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her , and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

Commercial Babylon represents the late global system . We have religious Babylon which is the ( apostate church) which play a large role in the economic nations area. The collapse of this religious system , will be the beginning of the end of total empire of “the beast ” .  caida 2However this global new system will  have three more years and means reigning over the earth.

In this chapter four different voices are heard and by each of them we will learn how the results of these last days will end .

This first angel announces 1.  the fall of Babylon fall 2. by fulfilling prophecies ( 14:8 , 16:19) the meaning of the two times the Angel says  has fallen , has fallen! is due to a double a.  is the commercial and d. the religious . Finally the new religious and economic world system receives the wrath and God’s hand .

II , The voice separation ( 18:4-8 )

4 And I heard another voice from heaven , saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins and receive of her plagues, 5 For her sins have reached unto heaven , and God has remembered her iniquities. 6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double paid according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double .  7 How much she has glorified and lived deliciously, so much give her of torment and mourning : for she saith in her heart, I sit as a  queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow 8 Therefore in one day shall her plagues , death and mourning and famine, and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judges her .

The other voice from heaven announces God’s people leaving, warning them for two reasons ( 1) because he knows that the city will be completely destroyed and God wants to save his chosen ones and for  ( 2) the city is satanic , and God does not want His people to contaminate . it is why the angel says out! In this world when you live without God you only live for worldly pleasures,  while the Christian lives for the pleasures of Christ. Let’s take a look at look ( verse 7 ) ” How much she hath glorified herself , and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give , or whether this satanic city will receive double portion for their wickedness. We see in ( verse 8) says so in one day her plagues will come , death and mourning and famine , and will be with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judges her .

III . The voice of lament ( 18:9-19 )

9 And the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and she lived in luxury that will weep and lament for her , when they see the smoke of her burning, 10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying ! Woe , Woe that great city Babylon , that mighty city : for in one hour is thy judgment come 11 And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her because no one buys their merchandise anymore: 12 merchandise of gold , silver , precious stones, pearls, fine linen, purple , silk and scarlet, 13 beasts and cinnamon, spice , incense , myrrh, frankincense , wine, oil , fine flour , wheat , all kinds of scented wood, all articles of ivory , all articles of costly wood, bronze , iron and marble , sheep, horses and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. 14 The fruit you longed for is gone from you , and all your riches and splendor have vanished, never to be recovered . 15 The merchants of these things , which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, 16 and saying, Woe , woe, the great city, that was clothed in linen thin, purple and scarlet, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls ! 17 For in one hour such great riches . And every shipmaster , and all the company in ships , and sailors, and as many as trade by sea , stood afar off, 18 and saw the smoke of her burning , they cried out , saying, What city is like unto this great city? 19 And they cast dust on their heads , and cried, weeping and mourning, saying, Woe , woe, the great city , where all who had ships at sea became rich by her wealth , for in one hour she made desolate !     apocapisis 18 foto

Here are two groups who lament the fall of Babylon 1. The kings of the Earth 2 . and the merchants of the earth. This collapse of Babylon will bring much regret , pain and tears to the land and they will see the true God they reject with adultery with Babylon,  worshiping false idols and love for money more than anything else . They thought their  luxurious life would last for ever , but now is over , observe the woe , woe ! lament in the city , just in a day is judged and in one hour has collapsed .

Their merchandise faltered disaster and ruin in that fallen earth and all its riches are over.  By this time the enslavement of man has increased,  in the last days Satan as he always wanted to have men slaved in spirit and in body. The wealth of the rich will doubled , while the poor impoverished. The destruction will come for both of great wealth also for the poor who have challenged  God.  All marine ad shipping industry will be destroyed and ruined. The world depends on these merchants but in these last days it all disappear.

IV. The voice of rejoicing ( 18:20-24 ) 

20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven , and ye holy apostles and prophets, for God hath avenged you on her. 21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone , and cast it into the sea , saying, Thus with violence will Babylon be thrown down , that great city , and never be found again. 22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians , and of pipers , and trumpeters, shall be heard no more in thee: and no craftsman of any craft shall be found in you, and the sound of a millstone shall be heard in you . 23 Light lamp will never shine in you, and the voice of bridegroom and bride will be heard in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth , for by your sorceries were all nations deceived . 24 And in her blood of prophets and saints was found , and all that were slain upon the earth.

Now there is rejoicing in heaven because God has judged her. At last God avenged the blood of martyrs. The Babylonian system and for all it has done since the beginning has always been to kill steal and murder God’s people faith . All souls under the altar of God asked ” How much longer ?  ” well now they can see the answer to your prayers. God has avenged his blood. And earth laments the dead.

This stone that was thrown indicates the speed of God’s judgment upon total beast empire . Many think that this millstone may be the return of Christ to earth. according to Daniel 2:34-35 , 44-45 this is the “Rock” who hurt .

God says  “not ever again  ! man can do nothing for the desist . Read Jeremiah 51 .

Then Christ has destroyed the rule of religious and the economic beast , but still there is a destruction of the army still to be defeated and for this we need to read chapter 19.

Apocalipsis 18: 1-24

La caída de Babilonia

La voz del juicio caida de babilonia

Después de esto vi a otro ángel descender del cielo con gran poder; y la tierra fue alumbrada con su gloria. 2 Y clamó con voz potente, diciendo: Ha caído, ha caído la gran Babilonia, y se ha hecho habitación de demonios y guarida de todo espíritu inmundo, y albergue de toda ave inmunda y aborrecible. 3 Porque todas las naciones han bebido del vino del furor de su fornicación; y los reyes de la tierra han fornicado con ella, y los mercaderes de la tierra se han enriquecido de la potencia de sus deleites.

La Babilonia comercial representa un gran sistema mundial de los últimos tiempos. Tenemos la Babilonia religiosa que es la (iglesia apostata) la cual desempeñara un gran papel en la área económica de las naciones.  Al derrumbe de este sistema religioso , sera el principio del fin del imperio total de la bestia., aunque tendrá tres anos y medios mas reinando sobre la tierra.

En este capitulo se oyen cuatro voces diferentes y de cada una de ellas aprenderemos como sera los resultados de esos últimos días .

Este primer ángel anuncia la caída de Babilonia  caida 2 haciendo cumplimiento de las profecías de (14:8; 16:19 ) el significado de las dos veces que repite ha caído , ha caído ! es por que es doble el derrumbe , es el comercial y religioso. Finalmente el nuevo sistema mundial religioso y económico recibe el gran castigo de la mano de Dios.

II, La voz de separación (18:4-8)

4 Y oí otra voz del cielo, que decía: Salid de ella, pueblo mío, para que no seáis partícipes de sus pecados, ni recibáis parte de sus plagas; 5 porque sus pecados han llegado hasta el cielo, y Dios se ha acordado de sus maldades. 6 Dadle a ella como ella os ha dado, y pegadle doble según sus obras; en el cáliz en que ella preparó bebida, prepararle a ella el doble. 7 Cuanto ella se ha glorificado y ha vivido en deleites, tanto darle de tormento y llanto; porque dice en su corazón: Yo estoy sentada como reina, y no soy viuda, y no veré llanto; 8 por lo cual en un solo día vendrán sus plagas; muerte, llanto y hambre, y será quemada con fuego; porque poderoso es Dios el Señor, que la juzga.

La otra voz del cielo anuncia al pueblo de Dios su salida, les advierte por dos razones (1) porque sabe que la cuidad sera completamente destruida y Dios quiere salvarlos (2) la cuidad es satánica, y Dios no desea que su pueblo se contamine . pues es  por eso que el Ángel dice Salid ! En este mundo el que vive sin Dios solo vive para los placeres mundanos mientras que el Cristiano vive para los placeres de Cristo.  Miremos el (ver 7) ” Cuanto ella se ha glorificado y ha vivido en deleites, tanto darle de tormento y llanto; o sea que esta cuidad satánica recibirá  doble porción  por su maldad . Vemos como en (ver 8) dice por lo cual en un solo día vendrá sus plagas ; muertes, llanto y hambre, y sera con fuego; porque poderoso es Dios el Senor , que la juzga .

III. La voz de lamento  (18:9-19)

9 Y los reyes de la tierra que han fornicado con ella, y con ella han vivido en deleites, llorarán y harán lamentación sobre ella, cuando vean el humo de su incendio, 10 parándose lejos por el temor de su tormento, diciendo: !!Ay, ay, de la gran ciudad de Babilonia, la ciudad fuerte; porque en una hora vino tu juicio! 11 Y los mercaderes de la tierra lloran y hacen lamentación sobre ella, porque ninguno compra más sus mercaderías; 12 mercadería de oro, de plata, de piedras preciosas, de perlas, de lino fino, de púrpura, de seda, de escarlata, de toda madera olorosa, de todo objeto de marfil, de todo objeto de madera preciosa, de cobre, de hierro y de mármol; 13 y canela, especias aromáticas, incienso, mirra, olíbano, vino, aceite, flor de harina, trigo, bestias, ovejas, caballos y carros, y esclavos, almas de hombres. 14 Los frutos codiciados por tu alma se apartaron de ti, y todas las cosas exquisitas y espléndidas te han faltado, y nunca más las hallarás. 15 Los mercaderes de estas cosas, que se han enriquecido a costa de ella, se pararán lejos por el temor de su tormento, llorando y lamentando, 16 y diciendo: !!Ay, ay, de la gran ciudad, que estaba vestida de lino fino, de púrpura y de escarlata, y estaba adornada de oro, de piedras preciosas y de perlas! 17 Porque en una hora han sido consumidas tantas riquezas. Y todo piloto, y todos los que viajan en naves, y marineros, y todos los que trabajan en el mar, se pararon lejos; 18 y viendo el humo de su incendio, dieron voces, diciendo: ¿Qué ciudad era semejante a esta gran ciudad? 19 Y echaron polvo sobre sus cabezas, y dieron voces, llorando y lamentando, diciendo: !!Ay, ay de la gran ciudad, en la cual todos los que tenían naves en el mar se habían enriquecido de sus riquezas; pues en una hora ha sido desolada!

Aquí son dos grupos los que lamentan la caída de Babilonia 1. Los reyes de la tierra 2. y los mercaderes de la tierra .  Esta derrumbe de Babilonia traerá mucho lamento , dolor y llanto a la tierra y esto es por rechazar al verdadero Dios fornicado con Babilonia adorando los falsos ídolos y amando mas que a nada al dinero en particular olvidándose de Dios. Su vida lujosa terminara , observen el ay ay !! de lamento en la cuidad , en un día es juzgada y en un hora derrumbada .

Sus mercadería claudico por el desastre y la ruina en que esa  tierra a caído y  todas sus riquezas se han acabado. La esclavitud del hombre aumentara en los últimos días, así como satanás siempre a querido tener al hombre esclavo en espíritu y cuerpo. Las riquezas de los ricos se doblara, mientras que los pobres empobrecerán. La destrucción vendrá tanto para los de grandes riquezas que también para los pobres que han desafiado a Dios.Toda industria tanto marina como naviera sera destruida y arruinada. Este mundo depende de estos mercaderes pero en los últimos días todo esto desaparecerá.

IV. La voz de regocijo (18:20-24) apocapisis 18 foto

20 Alégrate sobre ella, cielo, y vosotros, santos, apóstoles y profetas; porque Dios os ha hecho justicia en ella. 21 Y un ángel poderoso tomó una piedra, como una gran piedra de molino, y la arrojó en el mar, diciendo: Con el mismo ímpetu será derribada Babilonia, la gran ciudad, y nunca más será hallada. 22 Y voz de arpistas, de músicos, de flautistas y de trompeteros no se oirá más en ti; y ningún artífice de oficio alguno se hallará más en ti, ni ruido de molino se oirá más en ti. 23 Luz de lámpara no alumbrará más en ti, ni voz de esposo y de esposa se oirá más en ti; porque tus mercaderes eran los grandes de la tierra; pues por tus hechicerías fueron engañadas todas las naciones. 24 Y en ella se halló la sangre de los profetas y de los santos, y de todos los que han sido muertos en la tierra.

Ahora hay regocijo en el cielo porque Dios ha hecho justicia en ella. Al fin Dios a vengado la sangre de los mártires . El sistema babilónico todo lo que ha hecho desde el principio es matar hurtar y asesinar a los fieles de Dios .  Todas las almas debajo del altar de Dios preguntaban “hasta cuando” bueno ya vemos la contesta de sus oraciones. Dios ha vengado su sangre., y la tierra lamenta sus muertos .

Esta piedra que fue arrojada indica la rapidez del juicio de Dios sobre imperio total de la bestia. Muchos piensan que esta piedra de molino puede que sea el regreso de Cristo a la tierra. según Daniel 2:34-35, 44-45 esta es la  “Piedra ” que hirió . CUANDO EL MUNDO PIENSA QUE ANDA DE MARAVILLAS, CRISTO VENDRÁ PARA DESTRUIR SUS OBRAS .

Dios dice nunca mas ! el hombre no podrá hacer nada para que el desista. Leer Jeremías 51.

Entonces ya Cristo a destruido el imperio de la bestia religioso y el económico solo queda la destrucción del ejercito y para esto debemos leer el capitulo 19 .

Revelation 17:1-18

Revelation 17 and 18 is Babylon the great , which is to be ” the new world religious, economic and political system ” existing on earth before the return of Christ .

Judgment of the great whore   gran ramera
Then came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me , Come hither, I will show you the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters, 2 with whom they have committed fornication the kings of the earth and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication .

As we have already read earlier in chapter 16 where we studied the seven bowls , and all the judgments of God , we saw how his anger was poured out upon the earth, and the fall of Babylon . ( 16:17-21 ) . Now we see in this next chapter as one of the seven angels invites John to observe the fall of the great whore which is the “new world system apostate ” or also known as ” new world order” . nuevo sistema

Revelation refers us to several women , we must begin by

1. Jezabel , which begins introduced as apostasy in the Church Rev 2:20 .  jesabel

Two . Israel, Rev 12; 1 israel

Three . the harlot, the apostate end world system , we read in chapter 17 and 4 ,  Sistema_F_Internacional

II . The explanation ( 17:3-18 )

3 And he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns scarlet beast . 4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet , and decked with gold , precious stones and pearls , having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication : 5 And upon her forehead was a name written , MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS and abominations of the earth. 6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. 7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel ? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns . 8 The beast that you saw was , and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go into perdition: and the inhabitants of the earth whose names have not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life, they behold the beast that was and is not and will come . 9 Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits , 10 and they are seven kings . Five have fallen, one is , the other has not yet come, and when he cometh, he must continue a short time. 11 And the beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth , and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition . 12 And the ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings with the beast. 13 These have one mind , and shall give their power and strength unto the beast . 14 war against the Lamb , and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords and King of kings: and they that are with him are called and chosen and faithful. 15 He said to me : The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits , are peoples, multitudes , nations and languages. 16 And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these shall hate the whore , and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh , and burn her with fire: 17 For God hath put in their hearts to accomplish his purpose agree , and give their kingdom unto the beast , until the words of God are fulfilled . 18 The woman you saw is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth .

1. The whore wife whore

Come to verse 18 ” And the woman whom you saw is the great city we reigns over the kings of the earth.” Here we read very clear that this is a city that reigned over the earth in the days of John. The seven heads of verse 3 , they are symbols of mountains as we see in verse 9. You could say with certainty that is Rome. , Because this city is situated on seven hills. It should be noted that when the book of Revelation was written , Rome was who reigned over the kings of the earth.

Two . The beast Beast trono de la bestia

While we remember the chapter 13 we realize that it is the same beast that is the antichrist. This world ruler who presents Chapter 8 will surge from the abyss , serving notice to rise from the dead. This beast described here its presented to us dressed in scarlet, relating it to the dragon, which is none other than Satan see 12:3 . This beast has seven heads and ten horns, which is also identified with Satan see 12:3 , and 13:1 . If we now read verse 10 we see the seven heads are seven kings. equal seven mountains. And the ten horns that tell us in verse 10 are ten kings. So the beast resembles the antichrist and his person. These ” seven kings ” could be translated as “seven kingdoms ” assuring us that the kingdom of the beast will be the world’s seventh kingdom, one that not even the world has yet seen .

Three . The seven heads la bestia

We’ve reviewed over the heads and we have learned that there are seven mountains view (see 9 ) , and the seven kings or kingdoms ( see 10) Egypt , Assyria, Babylon , Persia, and Greece were the five fallen kingdoms. And ” Rome” was the kingdom that was in the days of John, so that way we can know that the kingdom is not yet come to the beast that is the seventh kingdom.

Four . The ten horns prophecy prophecy_mark-of-the-beast

Of these ten kings but we’ve explained in verse 12. , Where we talk about the revival of the Roman Empire is an analogy of the ten toes of the image of Daniel 2:36-45 . All this would be very strange for John because in his days even these kings had not received their power, because this ready for the last days , when resurface the European federation who will be lead by the beast when it comes to power . So, without a doubt , we know that these ten kings would support the beast in his battle against Christ and the saints which with the help of the beast, destroy the great whore .

Five. The nations waters  The-Great-Whore (1)

The nations of the world are the waters where the harlot sits . ( see 15). And this whore will have total influence over all the earth both in politics and in the economy, as well as in religion.

III . The application  rome

Rome is the harlot who represent the world church ” apostate ” in recent days . In recent times a new system of global Church was organized . And this ” bitch” will be involved in all political, economic world and with the help of the beast would become a great power system. This beast will have the full backing of the world or rather the ten kings to ride to victory . (Rev 6:1-2 ) The nations of Europe will come to a junction . During the first half of the Tribulation is where the scene in chapter 17 takes place , although there is still the beast is not even shown his true satanic character. But this will only be up to half of the tribulation , because this beast will want to take all the power and worship for itself . ( Cap 13) Why would the beast would want to get rid of the harlot, because it represents the worship of God , even in as an ” apostate state .” In ( verse 16 ) indicates that the federated nations of Europe will turn their back to the world church and destroy it  , thus this will be fulfilling the prophecies of Revelation 2:20-23 . Then , once the whore have been removed , then  the beast god plead and demand the worship of nations. worship of nations

The true church of God is described as ” a pure bride ”

novia pura  as pure as the harlot church ” apostate ” church apostate bride. the whore is in the desert , while the bride is in heaven . The harlot flies Satan ( 17:4 ) , while Christ adorns the bride. ( 19:8 ) . The harlot is judged for eternity , while the ” bride ” reign forever. The whore takes the bloodstain of all martyrs , while the ” bride ” is redeemed by the blood of the Lamb.  redimida

Apocalipsis 17: 1-18

APOCALIPSIS 17 y 18 representa  la gran Babilonia, que viene  a ser ” el nuevo sistema religioso , económico y político  mundial”  existente en la tierra antes el regreso de Cristo.

Condenación de la gran ramera

gran ramera

  Vino entonces uno de los siete ángeles que tenían las siete copas, y habló conmigo diciéndome: Ven acá, y te mostraré la sentencia contra la gran ramera, la que está sentada sobre muchas aguas; 2 con la cual han fornicado los reyes de la tierra, y los moradores de la tierra se han embriagado con el vino de su fornicación.

Como ya hemos leído,  anteriormente en el capitulo 16 donde estudiamos las siete copas y todos los juicios de Dios , vimos como su ira se a derramado sobre la tierra, y también la caída de Babilonia . (16:17-21) . Ahora vemos en este capitulo siguiente como uno de los siete ángeles invita a Juan a observar la caída de la gran ramera cual es el ” nuevo sistema apostata mundial”                                                                                                                                                      nuevo sistema

Apocalipsis nos hace referencia  de varias mujeres , comenzamos por

1. Jazabel,  la que comienza por introducirse como la apostasía en la Iglesia  Apo 2:20.  jesabel

2. Israel, Apo 12;1, israel

3. la ramera , el sistema mundial apostata final,  leemos en capitulo 17 y 4 , Sistema_F_Internacional

4. La Esposa, que es la Iglesia de Dios . 19:7. la espoda de dios

II. La explicacion (17:3-18) 

3 Y me llevó en el Espíritu al desierto; y vi a una mujer sentada sobre una bestia escarlata llena de nombres de blasfemia, que tenía siete cabezas y diez cuernos. 4 Y la mujer estaba vestida de púrpura y escarlata, y adornada de oro, de piedras preciosas y de perlas, y tenía en la mano un cáliz de oro lleno de abominaciones y de la inmundicia de su fornicación; 5 y en su frente un nombre escrito, un misterio: BABILONIA LA GRANDE, LA MADRE DE LAS RAMERAS Y DE LAS ABOMINACIONES DE LA TIERRA. 6 Vi a la mujer ebria de la sangre de los santos, y de la sangre de los mártires de Jesús; y cuando la vi, quedé asombrado con gran asombro. 7 Y el ángel me dijo: ¿Por qué te asombras? Yo te diré el misterio de la mujer, y de la bestia que la trae, la cual tiene las siete cabezas y los diez cuernos. 8 La bestia que has visto, era, y no es; y está para subir del abismo e ir a perdición; y los moradores de la tierra, aquellos cuyos nombres no están escritos desde la fundación del mundo en el libro de la vida, se asombrarán viendo la bestia que era y no es, y será. 9 Esto, para la mente que tenga sabiduría: Las siete cabezas son siete montes, sobre los cuales se sienta la mujer, 10 y son siete reyes. Cinco de ellos han caído; uno es, y el otro aún no ha venido; y cuando venga, es necesario que dure breve tiempo. 11 La bestia que era, y no es, es también el octavo; y es de entre los siete, y va a la perdición. 12 Y los diez cuernos que has visto, son diez reyes, que aún no han recibido reino; pero por una hora recibirán autoridad como reyes juntamente con la bestia. 13 Estos tienen un mismo propósito, y entregarán su poder y su autoridad a la bestia. 14 Pelearán contra el Cordero, y el Cordero los vencerá, porque él es Señor de señores y Rey de reyes; y los que están con él son llamados y elegidos y fieles. 15 Me dijo también: Las aguas que has visto donde la ramera se sienta, son pueblos, muchedumbres, naciones y lenguas. 16 Y los diez cuernos que viste en la bestia, éstos aborrecerán a la ramera, y la dejarán desolada y desnuda; y devorarán sus carnes, y la quemarán con fuego; 17 porque Dios ha puesto en sus corazones el ejecutar lo que él quiso: ponerse de acuerdo, y dar su reino a la bestia, hasta que se cumplan las palabras de Dios. 18 Y la mujer que has visto es la gran ciudad que reina sobre los reyes de la tierra.

1. La mujer  whore

Vamos al versiculo 18 “Y la mujer que has visto es la gran ciudad que reina sobre los reyes de la tierra”. Aquí nos queda  muy claro que se trata de una cuidad, que reinaba sobre la tierra en los días de Juan. Las siete cabezas del versículo 3, ellas son símbolos de montanas como también vemos en el versículo 9. Se podría decir con toda certeza que es Roma., porque esta cuidad esta situada sobre siete colinas. Cabe recalcar que cuando se escribía este libro de Apocalipsis , Roma era quien reinaba sobre los reyes de la tierra.

2. La bestia  la bestia

Si bien recordamos el capitulo 13 nos damos cuenta que es la misma bestia o sea el anticristo. Este gobernante mundial que nos presenta el capitulo 8 saldrá del abismo , dándonos a entender que se levantara entre los muertos. Esta bestia de la que se describe aquí se nos presenta vestida de escarlata , relacionándola con el dragón, que no es otro que Satanás veer 12:3. Esta bestia tiene siete cabezas y diez cuernos, que también se identifica con Satanás veer 12:3, y 13:1 . Si ahora leemos el versículo 10 vemos que estas siete cabezas son siete reyes. igual que siete montanas . Y los diez cuernos que nos hablan en el versículo 10  son otros diez reyes. Por eso que la bestia se asemeja al anticristo así como a su persona. Estos “siete reyes” podría traducirse  como “siete reinos”  asegurándonos que el reino de la bestia sera el séptimo reino mundial, aquel que aun el mundo no a visto.

3. Las siete cabezas  las siete cabeza

Ya hemos repasado sobre las cabezas y hemos aprendido que son siete montanas  ver (ver 9 ), y los siete reyes o reinos (ver 10)  Egipto, Asiria , Babilonia, Persia, y Grecia  eran los cinco reinos caídos. Y “Roma” era el reino que era en los tiempos de Juan , así de esa manera podemos saber que el reino que aun no a venido es el de la bestia o sea el séptimo reino.

4. Los diez cuernos prophecy_mark-of-the-beast

De estos diez reyes mas,  nos los explica en el ver 12., donde nos hablan del resurgimiento del imperio Romano es una anologia de los diez dedos en los pies de la imagen de Daniel 2:36-45  . Todo esto para Juan seria muy extraño porque en sus días aun estos reyes no habían recibido su poder, porque esta preparado para los últimos días, cuando resurja la federación Europea quien estará encabezada por la bestia cuando llegue al poder. Así,  que sin duda alguna,  ya sabemos que  estos diez reyes respaldaran a la bestia en su batalla contra Cristo y los santos cual con la ayuda de la bestia , destruirá a la gran ramera.

5. Las aguas naciones

Las naciones del mundo son las aguas donde se sienta la ramera. (ver 15). Y esta ramera tendrá influencia total sobre toda la tierra tanto en la política, como en  la  economía, y como también en la  religión.

III. La aplicacion l gran ramera

Es Roma la ramera que representara la iglesia mundial “apostata” de los últimos días. En los últimos tiempos se organizara un nuevo sistema de Iglesia mundial. Y esta “ramera” sera involucrada en todo sistema político, económico del mundo y con la ayuda de la bestia se convertiría en un gran poder. Esta bestia tendrá todo el respaldo del mundo o mejor dicho de lo diez reyes al cabalgar en victoria. (Apo 6:1-2) Las naciones de Europa vendrán a una unión. Durante la primer MITAD de la tribulación es donde la escena en el capitulo 17 toma lugar , aunque ahí todavía la bestia no se mostrado aun con su verdadero carácter satánico. Pero esto solo sera hasta la mitad de la tribulación, porque esta bestia querrá tomar todo el poder y la adoración para si misma. (cap 13) Razón por la que la bestia querrá deshacerse de la ramera, por cuanto representa la adoración a Dios, aunque sea de manera “apostata” . En el  (ver 16 ) indica que la naciones federadas de Europa se volveran contra de la iglesia mundial y la destruirán, cumpliendo así las profecías  de Apo 2:20-23. Entonces , una vez se ha eliminado a la ramera, la bestia se declarara dios y exigirá la adoración de las naciones.

La iglesia verdadera de Dios se describí como ” una novia pura ” novia pura mientras a la ramera como la iglesia “apostata” iglesia-apostata . la ramera esta en el desierto , mientras que la novia esta en el cielo . La ramera se adorna de Satanás (17:4) , mientras que Cristo adorna a la novia. (19:8) . La ramera es juzgada por la eternidad, mientras que la “novia ” reinara por siempre . La ramera lleva la mancha de sangre de todos los mártires, mientras que la “novia” es redimida por la sangre del Cordero. redimida
