The Vision of Revelation 17 - 19 Timeline

Revelation chapters 17 -19 is a highly symbolic vision spanning the time of  1600 years before Jesus when false religion continued its reign over the earth. False religion is the Whore of Babylon who will reign until the last days. But she will be destroyed by the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Who Is The Great Whore and the Beast?

Rev 17:1  Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and spoke with me, saying, “Come here, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, 

  • THIS BEGINS THE SECOND VISION THAT ENDS IN REVELATION 19.
  • This is another aside or vision giving us another look at what has happened. Rev_17:1 through Rev_19:21 are another vision full of symbols (like the vision of Rev 12 to Rev 14.)
  • In these visions, the events are replayed from a different point of view. This point of view is looking at the defeat of false religion. The visions also can crunch events together that are far apart or spend more time explaining something that happens relatively fast – as if there is no time.
  • Notice the emphasis is that the harlot sits on waters, not the beast. Even though she is sitting on the beast, Rev_17:9-10, her primary influence is on the peoples of the nations. Rev_17:15. So the harlot must pre-date the spiritual heads of the beast – going back as far as Egypt

Rev 17:2  with whom the kings of the earth committed acts of immorality, and those who dwell on the earth were made drunk with the wine of her immorality.” 

  • She sits on many waters (peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues) Rev_17:1
  • She entices the kings of the earth Rev_17:2; Rev_18:3
  • She makes the inhabitants of the earth drunk with her (spiritual) fornication Rev_17:2; Rev_18:3
  • She enriches merchants Rev_18:3
  • She enriches kings Rev_18:9
  • She attacks and/or murders the prophets of God Rev_19:2
  • She corrupts the world with her (spiritual) fornication Rev_19:2
  • A vivid description of the Roman Catholic Church in the last 1600 years but false religion goes even farther back than that.

Rev 17:3  And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness; and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast, full of blasphemous names, having seven heads and ten horns. 
Rev 17:4  The woman was clothed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a gold cup full of abominations and of the unclean things of her immorality,

  • Roman Catholic bishops and cardinals are known for wearing purple and scarlet

Rev 17:5  and on her forehead a name was written, a mystery, “BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” 

  • In the spirit, there is a city in Second Heaven right above the earth called Babylon. It is the capital city of the spirit of antichrist and false religion. It is inhabited by fallen angels, cherubs and demons.
  • She is a harlot/whore but she has produced many many more of her kind. In other words, all the false religions of the world would be considered her offspring.  Men have a natural desire to worship and so these spiritual counterfeits were spun up by the spirit of antichrist to fill that need. They have millions of gods to worship and countless lies to feed humanity.

Rev 17:6  And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. When I saw her, I wondered greatly. 

  • Saints (holy ones) and witnesses of Jesus seem to be two different groups! Saints include O.T. people of God Mat_27:52…as well as N.T. people of God Rom_1:7. A witness is one who saw something and can attest to it’s existence.

Rev 17:7  And the angel said to me, “Why do you wonder? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns. 
Rev 17:8  “The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to come up out of the abyss and go to destruction. And those who dwell on the earth, whose name has not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, will wonder when they see the beast, that he was and is not and will come. 

  • The seven heads are a look into Second Heaven where there are spiritual princes:
  • 1. Prince of Egypt (Eze_29:1-16)
    2. Prince of Assyria (Isa_10:5-19)
    3. Prince of Babylon (Isa_14:4)
    4. Prince of Persia (Dan_10:13)
    5. Prince of Greece (Dan_10:20)
    6. Prince of Rome (Rev_17:8)
    7. Prince of Revived Rome (Rev_17:8)
    8. FALLEN SPIRITUAL PRINCE TO BECOME THE ANTICHRST
  • Six strong fallen angels shall come out of the pit to influence the earth. They were in the Second Heaven before but were eventually bound in the Bottomless Pit. These are known as the princes of Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Rome. These are the “was” statement fulfilled.
  • There is a seventh prince, the one of Revived Rome, who is ruling now in Second Heaven to create a world-government.
  • All seven will be back again on Earth during the Great Tribulation – the “will come” statement fulfilled.
  • They will be the hand that fits inside the glove of modern nations – the revised U.N. run by the U.K., Russia, and Franco-Germany which is the E.U. These ARE the New World Order to come and rule for 3.5 years.

Rev 17:9  “Here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits, 

  • The mountains are not literal; they represent the seven world system kingdoms of Satan. Luk_4:5-8

Rev 17:10  and they are seven kings; five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; and when he comes, he must remain a little while. 

  • The antichrist will be part of the seventh kingdom. The seventh kingdom is a revised Roman kingdom which is the revised United Nations established upon Socialism/Communism.
  • The seventh kingdom is ruled by a fallen cherub that dwells in the Second Heaven. That cherub will eventually fall to the earth and possess the man known as the antichrist. This is how the antichrist man and his earthly kingdom of the revised United Nations becomes the eighth kingdom.
  • The seventh prince is a cherub called “the Beast”
  • When the antichrist man is possessed by this fallen cherub, he becomes known as “the Beast”. This is the same term used to describe the revised United Nations in Revelation 13 because it is run by the Beast/antichrist.
  • The antichrist’s kingdom and power will continue a short space.
  • The antichrist’s kingdom and power, the revised United Nations, will last 3.5 years.

Rev 17:11  “The beast which was and is not, is himself also an eighth and is one of the seven, and he goes to destruction. 

  • When the seven spiritual princes/kings come together they will create an eighth kingdom but this kingdom will be on Earth, not Second Heaven. This kingdom is described in the vision of Rev. 12-14. It is the world government kingdom run by the antichrist and 10 men. Namely it is the new U.N. which the E.U., U.K., and Russia will yield their power to.
  • The Beast is the head of the six previous princes/kings – the spiritual princes over Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome. He is called the Beast, possibly because he used to be one of God’s four creatures at the Throne. He alone is called the Beast but also when all seven spiritual kings come together, collectively they are also called the Beast.
  • So, to explain this verse: alone he is a cherub king called the Beast but when all seven are together they will make up an 8th kingdom on earth. Individually the Beast is one of the seven; collectively they are an eighth mountain/kingdom. This Beast will be able to possess the man called antichrist
  • Because it is a spiritual prince, it too is a “head” on the Beast but it comes down (or is thrown down) to earth. That is why it is “an eighth but it belongs to the seven!”

Rev 17:12  “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they receive authority as kings with the beast for one hour. 

Rev 17:13  “These have one purpose, and they give their power and authority to the beast. 

  • Power=dunamis
  • Authority=exousia
  • The ten rulers of the antichrist kingdom have one mind.
  • The one mind is Socialism and revolves around a satanic one-world humanistic government.
  • The ten rulers of the antichrist kingdom will give their power and strength unto the antichrist kingdom.
  • The authority as well as the economic and military might, of the nations from which the ten world leaders proceed, will be handed over to the revised U.N.

Rev 17:14  “These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful.” 

  • The ten rulers of the antichrist kingdom will make war with the Lamb.
  • The ten rulers of the antichrist kingdom will hate God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and God’s people, the Church and Jews. They will persecute Christians and Jews.
  • Jesus, the Lamb, and those with Jesus, the called and chosen and faithful, will overcome the antichrist kingdom and its rulers.
  • Rev_17:16

Rev 17:15  And he *said to me, “The waters which you saw where the harlot sits, are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues. 
Rev 17:16  “And the ten horns which you saw, and the beast, these will hate the harlot and will make her desolate and naked, and will eat her flesh and will burn her up with fire. 

  • There will be ten horns – ten men that control the antichrist kingdom.
  • Ten world leaders will give their allegiance to the revised United Nations. They will mostly come from the U.K., Russia, and E.U.
  • Ten horns on the beast, antichrist kingdom, are the ten earthly kings that will rule the antichrist kingdom (revised United Nations).
  • They have not received a kingdom yet but receive authority as kings “one hour with the beast”
  • These ten world leaders rule nations like Germany, U.K., and Russia so they are major world leaders. But they will push to literally rule the entire world through the world-government of the revised U.N.
  • They will only rule for short time with the revised U.N. because the nations will only give them power for a short time to subdue an immediate threat, like an asteroid hitting the earth.
  • Rev_13:1; Rev_17:12; Rev_17:16; Dan_7:20
  • The ten rulers of the antichrist kingdom will hate the whore.
  • The whore is led by the false prophet (Rev_20:10; Rev_13:11-18). The false prophet is the Pope. The whore includes  those in the false religions that join the one-world religion and those that do not.
  • The ten rulers of the antichrist kingdom will make the whore desolate.
  • The ten rulers of the antichrist kingdom will lay false religion, Islam in particular, waste. (When they are done with Islam is when they turn on the Jews and Christians in full force, though to some measure they will continually persecute Jews and Christians because they do not conform to the one-world religion.)
  • The ten rulers of the antichrist kingdom will make the whore naked.
  • The ten rulers of the antichrist kingdom will persecute false religions discrediting and exposing the hypocrisy of its leaders through data collection and media exposure.
  • The ten rulers of the antichrist kingdom will eat the flesh of the whore.
  • The ten rulers of the antichrist kingdom will be at war with false religions that do not conform to the New World Order.
  • The ten rulers of the antichrist kingdom will burn the whore with fire.
  • The ten rulers of the antichrist kingdom will burn the leaders of the false religions with fire.

Rev 17:17  “For God has put it in their hearts to execute His purpose by having a common purpose, and by giving their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God will be fulfilled. 

  • The ten rulers of the antichrist kingdom will give their kingdom to the beast until the prophecies of God’s Word are fulfilled.
  • Then ten rulers of the antichrist will give the revised United Nations, to the Beast.Rev 17:18  “The woman whom you saw is the great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth.” 
  • In Second Heaven is a literal  but spiritual city call Babylon. It is from here that false religion was conceived and continues to thrive on the earth.
  • It is controlled by the spirit of antichrist, the rider of the white horse in the First Seal.
  • The whore/spiritual Babylon has been around even before 1600 B.C. It goes back to the Tower of Babel. But the vision in Revelation 17 only goes back to 1600 B.C.

When Is The Fall of Babylon?

Rev 18:1  After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illumined with his glory.
Rev 18:2  And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird.

  • “Has become” should have been translated “became” – Vincent’s Word Studies
  • This happened at a certain point in the past (Aorist tense in the Greek). So it is describing the spiritual condition of Babylon in the past, not at the moment of this declaration.
  • “Fallen” is not that God destroyed her in judgement. It is here a statement of her spiritual condition that she did to herself. But God is about to destroy her power-base on the Earth.
  • See Isaiah 47 and Jeremiah 50 for additional study.
  • This is the same as Revelation 14:8 NASB  “And another angel, a second one, followed, saying, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, she who has made all the nations drink of the wine of the passion of her immorality.
  • This is one example proving Revelation is not written in chronological order. It is the same story written at least four different times from different perspectives but the ending is the same: the Coming of Jesus to Rapture/Resurrection His own and then God’s wrath.
  • Spiritual Babylon, located in Second Heaven, had been completely given over to Satan’s forces and so it must be completely destroyed.
  • It mentions demons and unclean spirits dwelling there. A “prison” is not a good translation. It means a holding place or a place where they find respite. The hateful bird means the unclean demonic spirits that fly.
  • Spiritual Babylon is the capital city of the antichrist spirit, the cherub called the Beast, who rules there until Babylon’s destruction, as we read here in Revelation 18.

Rev 18:3  “For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality.”

  • The nations and kings of the earth have become drunk on her spiritual counterfeit of worship to the True God.
  • They have worshiped everything under Heaven, from trees and stones to celestial bodies. They worshiped millions of false gods and even worship themselves. They all have been led astray by deceiving demons and have rejected the worship of the True and Living God and His Son Jesus Christ.
  • Merchants of the earth have become rich in the merchandise of religion.
  • On Earth she has a counterpart, namely the Vatican. God’s people should have nothing to do with the Roman Catholic Church. It is inundated with deceiving spirits who sooth men’s consciences who think they should worship a God but then feeds them only that which is false.

Rev 18:4  I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues;

  • Here we see on the Earth the Rapture. We are raptured from the earth unto the Second Heaven right before God’s wrath begins.
  • By this point Second Heaven had been cleared out of all fallen angels and demons for the last 3 1/2 years.
  • Notice the people here are called “My people” – God’s people. Where are they? Are they gone in a Pre-trib. rapture? Absolutely NOT! They are still on the earth until this happens at the end of the final 3 1/2 years! Pre-trib. teaching is completely wrong.
  • Notice also to stay here on earth after this would mean we would participate in sin and receive the plagues.

Rev 18:5  for her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.
Rev 18:6  “Pay her back even as she has paid, and give back to her double according to her deeds; in the cup which she has mixed, mix twice as much for her.
Rev 18:7  “To the degree that she glorified herself and lived sensuously, to the same degree give her torment and mourning; for she says in her heart, ‘I SIT as A QUEEN AND I AM NOT A WIDOW, and will never see mourning.’

  • See also: Isa 47:8 NASB  “Now, then, hear this, you sensual one, Who dwells securely, Who says in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one besides me. I will not sit as a widow, Nor know loss of children.’

Rev 18:8  “For this reason in one day her plagues will come, pestilence and mourning and famine, and she will be burned up with fire; for the Lord God who judges her is strong.

  • See also: Isa 47:9 NASB  “But these two things will come on you suddenly in one day: Loss of children and widowhood. They will come on you in full measure In spite of your many sorceries, In spite of the great power of your spells.
  • It all happens on ONE DAY; the last seven plagues are poured upon the Earth. Zec_14:6-9, Isa_47:9
  • God’s wrath happens through the Seven Vials of God’s wrath mentioned in Reveltion 16.

Rev 18:9  “And the kings of the earth, who committed acts of immorality and lived sensuously with her, will weep and lament over her when they see the smoke of her burning,

  • The Vatican and Rome will burn with fire from Heaven.

Rev 18:10  standing at a distance because of the fear of her torment, saying, ‘Woe, woe, the great city, Babylon, the strong city! For in one hour your judgment has come.’
Rev 18:11  “And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her, because no one buys their cargoes any more—
Rev 18:12  cargoes of gold and silver and precious stones and pearls and fine linen and purple and silk and scarlet, and every kind of citron wood and every article of ivory and every article made from very costly wood and bronze and iron and marble,
Rev 18:13  and cinnamon and spice and incense and perfume and frankincense and wine and olive oil and fine flour and wheat and cattle and sheep, and cargoes of horses and chariots and slaves and human lives.
Rev 18:14  “The fruit you long for has gone from you, and all things that were luxurious and splendid have passed away from you and men will no longer find them.
Rev 18:15  “The merchants of these things, who became rich from her, will stand at a distance because of the fear of her torment, weeping and mourning,
Rev 18:16  saying, ‘Woe, woe, the great city, she who was clothed in fine linen and purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls;
Rev 18:17  for in one hour such great wealth has been laid waste!’ And every shipmaster and every passenger and sailor, and as many as make their living by the sea, stood at a distance,
Rev 18:18  and were crying out as they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What city is like the great city?’
Rev 18:19  “And they threw dust on their heads and were crying out, weeping and mourning, saying, ‘Woe, woe, the great city, in which all who had ships at sea became rich by her wealth, for in one hour she has been laid waste!’
Rev 18:20  “Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you saints and apostles and prophets, because God has pronounced judgment for you against her.”

  • False religion has always been the source of torment for God’s people.

Rev 18:21  Then a strong angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, “So will Babylon, the great city, be thrown down with violence, and will not be found any longer.
Rev 18:22  “And the sound of harpists and musicians and flute-players and trumpeters will not be heard in you any longer; and no craftsman of any craft will be found in you any longer; and the sound of a mill will not be heard in you any longer;
Rev 18:23  and the light of a lamp will not shine in you any longer; and the voice of the bridegroom and bride will not be heard in you any longer; for your merchants were the great men of the earth, because all the nations were deceived by your sorcery.
Rev 18:24  “And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints and of all who have been slain on the earth.”

Rejoicing in Heaven

Rev 19:1  After these things I heard something like a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, “Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God; 

  • This is referring to Third Heaven, the place of God’s Throne. There are no devils or fallen angels or fallen cherubs there and there hasn’t been for a very long time.

Rev 19:2  BECAUSE HIS JUDGMENTS ARE TRUE AND RIGHTEOUS; for He has judged the great harlot who was corrupting the earth with her immorality, and HE HAS AVENGED THE BLOOD OF HIS BOND-SERVANTS ON HER.” 
Rev 19:3  And a second time they said, “Hallelujah! HER SMOKE RISES UP FOREVER AND EVER.” 
Rev 19:4  And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who sits on the throne saying, “Amen. Hallelujah!” 

  • These living creatures are the cherubim (see Ezekiel chapters 1 and 10).
  • I believe the devil was a cherub and the Beast/antichrist spirit was a cherub at God’s throne. They used to literally lift God up. But they both fell due to sin. Another translation for the “living creatures” is “beasts.”
  • A cherub is a winged animal-like being, not an angel. They can have multiple faces like that of an ox or bull, a lion, an eagle, and man. They can also change their forms so that they can have all four faces at the same time. The cherub’s primary face is that of an ox or bull.

Rev 19:5  And a voice came from the throne, saying, “Give praise to our God, all you His bond-servants, you who fear Him, the small and the great.” 

When Is The Marriage Supper of the Lamb?

Rev 19:6  Then I heard something like the voice of a great multitude and like the sound of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, saying, “Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns. 
Rev 19:7  “Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready.” 

  • This is in Third Heaven.
  • The Church is the Bride of Christ! Eph_5:31-32; Rev_19:7-8; Rev_21:2; 2Co_11:2; Rom_7:4;
  • At this point the entire Church has been gathered to Third Heaven. It is after the final 3 1/2 years on earth and God’s wrath is completed as mentioned in chapter 18 which in particular emphasizes the judgement again false religion.
  • The Bride of Christ will have clean clothes: Rev_19:7-8; Eph_5:26-27; Rev_3:4-5

Rev 19:8  It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. 

  • We see a contrast between a whore, in false religion, and the purity of Jesus’ Bride – the true religion.
  • It is the righteous “ACTS” of the Church that she is clothed with. She is righteous in position because of Jesus’ work on the cross. But her clothes are the deeds of righteousness she has done on earth.  Don’t show up to this wedding without clothes! Do good works, not to be saved but because you are saved.

Rev 19:9  Then he said to me, “Write, ‘Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.'” And he said to me, “These are true words of God.” 
Rev 19:10  Then I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Do not do that; I am a fellow servant of yours and your brethren who hold the testimony of Jesus; worship God. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” 

  • The main essence of the message of the prophet is the testimony of Jesus.
  • The ministry of the prophet:
    Rev_19:10; 2Pe_1:21; Heb_1:1; 1Ti_4:14; 1Th_5:20; Eph_4:11; 1Co_14:39; 1Co_14:29-32; 1Co_14:22-24; 1Co_14:1-6; 1Co_13:2; 1Co_12:28; 1Co_12:10; Rom_12:6; Act_21:10-11; Act_15:32; Act_2:18; Joh_4:44; Luk_11:49; Mat_10:41

When Does Jesus Comes on a White Horse To Pour Out God’s Wrath?

Rev 19:11  And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war. 

  • The other rider of the white horse, of the first Seal, was the spirit of antichrist. This time the rider is Jesus Christ Himself coming at the end of this age.
  • This section is not the next event after the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. This section, Revelation 19:11 – 21, goes back in time again to the beginning of God’s wrath/The Day of the Lord. In other words, after this is the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Revelation is not written in chronological order. Two reasons to consider for this:
    • 1. Jewish men were not permitted to go to war right after getting married Deuteronomy 24:5 So Jesus does not get married then go to war on the Earth.
    • 2. This opening of Heaven would match perfectly with the timing of the other times it is mentioned in Revelation 11:19, 15:5, 19:11 – all of which are the same event of God’s wrath/The Day of the Lord. This happens in Revelation 18 which is right before the Marriage Supper in chapter 19.
  • Rev. 19:11 is the opening of the Day of the Lord: Amo 5:16 – 20; Joel 2:1-11; Isaiah 13:6-13

Rev 19:12  His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. 
Rev 19:13  He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.

  • Jesus’ clothes may be dipped in blood because He personally destroys His enemies at Bozrah: Isa 34:5-8 NASB  For My sword is satiated in heaven, Behold it shall descend for judgment upon Edom And upon the people whom I have devoted to destruction.  (6)  The sword of the LORD is filled with blood, It is sated with fat, with the blood of lambs and goats, With the fat of the kidneys of rams. For the LORD has a sacrifice in Bozrah And a great slaughter in the land of Edom.  (7)  Wild oxen will also fall with them And young bulls with strong ones; Thus their land will be soaked with blood, And their dust become greasy with fat.  (8)  For the LORD has a day of vengeance, A year of recompense for the cause of Zion.
  • See also Isaiah 63:1-6

Rev 19:14  And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses. 

  • Notice armies follow, usually speaking of the hosts of angels, not the Bride. 2Th_1:7 The Bride does not go to war.
  • Saints are not the only ones clothed in pure white fine linen: Rev_15:6
  • This army is the army of Joel 2.

Rev 19:15  From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty. 

  • People think they know Jesus because of His compassion and love but He also is a man of war – with a zeal for His Father’s will to destroy the enemies of God.
  • This is one of the places where God’s wrath is mentioned and it is after the final seven years have completed. The final seven years are NOT the wrath of God. Do a study on the word “wrath” in Revelation and it is always at the end, never during the final seven years. The destruction that happens during the final seven years is the work Satan, not God.

Rev 19:16  And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” 
Rev 19:17  Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and he cried out with a loud voice, saying to all the birds which fly in midheaven, “Come, assemble for the great supper of God, 
Rev 19:18  so that you may eat the flesh of kings and the flesh of commanders and the flesh of mighty men and the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them and the flesh of all men, both free men and slaves, and small and great.” 

  • There will be kings, captains, mighty men, horses, free men, slaves, small and great men in the armies of the antichrist and those that accompany them.

Rev 19:19  And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies assembled to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. 

  • The Beast is the name of the spirit that possess the man called antichrist.
  • They think they will destroy Jesus when He comes to Earth to be crowned as King in Jerusalem. They are gravely mistaken. The armies of the antichrist, under the new U.N., will be swiftly defeated.

Rev 19:20  And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who performed the signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image; these two were thrown alive into the lake of fire which burns with brimstone. 

  • Notice those that take the mark of the Beast are a deceived people.
  • They worship the image which is likely some type of computer interaction on their cell phones or computers where they can see and hear the image speak. They can even talk back to it and worship it as video surveillance watches them.

Rev 19:21  And the rest were killed with the sword which came from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse, and all the birds were filled with their flesh.
