Revelation 18:23“The light of a lamp shall not shine in you anymore, and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall not be heard in you anymore. For your merchants were the great men of the earth, for by your sorcery all the nations were deceived.
24“And in her was found the blood of prophets and saints, and of all who were slain on the earth.”
Of all the judgements on babylon thus far, I personally think this is the worst. The saints on earth is a preserving agent. The body of believers are the tools God uses to get His word out. What kind of legacy does babylon have if the lamp of Gods light is snuffed out? In fact, this world system now places little to no value on solid christian values. The citizens of heaven are far more behaved and present few to no civil unrest than the citizens of this world, yet because of the representation of Jesus, they are belittled. The option to not being able to hear about or experience the LORD thru His body is a very sad thing. Babylon the great enjoyed slaying christians on the public stage. It distances itself for what? Wealth, fame, power? Watch what you ask for.
