Bible Reading Day 362

Day 362: December 28 (Revelation 18)

Good morning!

After seeing Babylon, the political and religious power system, judged in Chapter 17, today we see the commercial system judged in the same way. Chapter 18 begins with the same pronouncements of judgment, and goes on to describe how merchants and traders also mourn the loss of the world system. There can be as much evil in trade as in politics, as much sin in possessions as in depravity!

The good news is that all this evil comes to an end rapidly when the angel of God throws down the boulder of judgment, and declares an end to the bloodshed of the righteous.

Whatever challenges we face as believers, God’s purpose is fulfilled and His victory will be complete.

Have a great day!
Mark.
