 Sermon on Revelation 19

Triumph of the Church

By Brian Pepper

Those who are keen Bible students realize that the final hours of the last warning message of Revelation is about to sound. God is right now giving His last call. You will find it recorded in Revelation 18:4,5, “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
Verse 5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.” 

God is calling His people. They are still in Babylon. Babylon is not only Rome but all those who are guilty of confusing the truth, especially the truth about Jesus Christ; those who teach that Jesus is not divine, that He is (a son of God) the same as Adam, and not the Son of God as presented in the Bible. I assure you that God will judge them accordingly. John 5:23 says, “That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.” 

It says that all men should honour the Son for He was sent by God. He was Heaven's representative to proclaim the truth.

What is Truth?

However I want to tell you that it is becoming more and more difficult to know what the truth is. There are so many voices claiming that they have the truth. And if you listen to those voices you will find that it is not long before some error is detected; then it is no longer truth.

The Holy Scriptures assure us that the last true church will be keeping the truth. Isaiah 26:2 says, “Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in.”

The devil is doing all that he can to confuse people, to lead them astray, to discourage them. As the Apostle Paul says, Satan is blinding the minds of men and women so that they cannot understand the plain gospel of Jesus Christ. 

Deceived by Modernist Preachers

The modernist preachers have undermined confidence in the Holy Scriptures. They have torn away this part of the Word of God and that part until all that is left is the covers.

As William Henry Spence says in his book ‘A Modernist’s Criticism of Modernism’, “Modernism has permeated Protestantism until even the great fundamentals of the Christian religion have been undermined and denied from the sacred desk."

This is a tragedy for thousands have been deceived. But God says, "This is not going on much longer, I will make an end of it all”. So the warning goes out in these closing hours of time, "Come out of this confusion, for I am about to destroy Babylon”.

The Loud Cry

Revelation chapter 18 pictures the last phase of the everlasting gospel and it calls God’s people out before God’s anger descends upon Babylon in the seven Last Plagues. This chapter shows that the old mother Babylon and her harlot daughters are doomed.

Revelation 18:1 says, “And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.” 

This angel has great power; in other words, a powerful message. Verse 2 says, “And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying…” 

This last message to the world is called “the loud cry”. In the closing hours of time God will pour out His Spirit upon His people in order to give them power to boldly witness and to reap a harvest of souls. Large numbers will accept the Three Angels’ Messages in the last hours of time. And many among that number will be those who have never heard the truth before.

There will be those who have held back because of fear of their relations, or their husband, or wife, or even friends. No longer will men and women hold back for they will realize that this is the final opportunity to accept Jesus Christ as their Saviour. Before God destroys Babylon He must first of all call His people out.

Last Opportunity Before Destruction

The Lord waits until they are all separated from Babylon, then destruction will fall swift and sure. 

The flood did not come in the time of Noah until the people of God were safe in the ark. The Lord held back the fires of Sodom and Gomorrah until Lot and his family were safe on the mountain side. Before the destruction of Jerusalem by the armies of Titus the same warning was given. Again the reformers gave the same divine call, and once again this is being repeated in the Three Angels’ Messages. God says of Babylon, “For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities."

Again in verse 2 it says, “… and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.” 

Spirits of Devils

The spirits of devils working miracles have been secretly but rapidly working their way into the many churches and denominations and sects that make up Babylon.

St Paul gave this solemn warning in 1 Timothy 4:1, “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;”

Though they may not be aware of it, many professed churches of Christendom are believing and teaching the doctrines of devils.

Immortality of the Soul

Immortality of the soul is a doctrine not only of devils but of the devil himself. It is the first recorded lie in the Scriptures. God said of the tree of good and evil in Genesis 2:17, “…for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” However the devil said in Genesis 3:4, “…Ye shall not surely die:” 

And men and women have accepted the lie of the devil and you will find it in nearly every church today. It is this belief more than any other that has introduced spiritualism and is laying the ground for the greatest deception of the ages.

The Aetherius Society 

Some time back I read an article in a newspaper which stated that the Aetherius Society had established a branch here in Australia.

I guess to the majority of people who read that announcement it meant nothing, they would be quite unconcerned. However to the informed person it meant a great deal. It is another warning of how close we are to the end of all things

This is what they believe:

(1)   That our world is headed for atomic destruction.

(2)   The time is nearing when those who once lived upon this earth will launch a final campaign to save this world from annihilation.

(3)   Inhabitants of other worlds will aid them in this great humanitarian project ( flying saucers, U.F.O.’s etc)

(4)   The Aetherius Society is dedicated to the general elevation of spiritualism in order to prepare the way for yet another Great Master soon slated to journey to this earth and by his exalted teachings he will convert the world saving it from self destruction.

Now isn’t that amazing? It is paving the way for the coming of Satan when he impersonates Jesus Christ.

There are many who are preparing the ground for this great deception such as those who teach that Jesus will be here on this earth during the Millennium, and will convert the heathen, making them into Christians. The Bible teaches no such thing. It is a doctrine of Devils, another of Babylon’s deceptions. It is no wonder that God says of her "And is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit."

But soon now she is to go down into perdition, never to rise again.

The Two Suppers 

St John writing in Revelation 19:9 says, "…Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb.” 

You see, there are going to be two great suppers. To one there is an invitation and a wonderful blessing in attending. But to the other regretfully we have to say there is no invitation, there is no blessing in attending. For those who decide on this supper it will mean death. That is the choice that people will make as the last great call goes out. Yes, “blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb.”

This invitation has been given to the human race from the time of Adam right down to the last generation. Jesus at the wedding feast in Cana looked to the time of His own Marriage Supper. He looked forward to the time when sin would be blotted out forever. And now the cry goes out, The Marriage Supper of the Lamb is come.

The great system of evil and deception is overthrown. Boastful Babylon is now a desolation. She thought that she was a queen, that her power and might would last forever. But God steps in and destroys her. God’s people are delivered. The mighty chorus of triumph goes up.  The apostle John says that it is like the sound of "…many waters…” and like the “voice of mighty thundering.”

Revelation 19:6,7 says, “And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.
Verse 7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.”

City is the Bride 

There almost seems to be a contradiction in speaking of the bride, for in Revelation 21:2 it says, “And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.”

There is no contradiction for the city is the bride. But a city without inhabitants is only a group of buildings and streets. It is the people who occupy those buildings that make the city what it is. And the New Jerusalem with its jasper walls, its golden streets and colourful foundation stones, and radiant with the glory of God is to be filled with God's people of all ages.

Actually the Holy City is not spoken of as the bride until the people of God are already occupying it.

Marriage Supper of the Lamb 

Revelation 19:9 says, “…Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb.”

A wonderful blessing to those who respond. Jesus looked forward to this time for in Matthew 26:29 He said, “But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.”

Again in Luke 22:30 it says, “That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.” 

That will be a wonderful day when Jesus joins His people in partaking of the bread and wine in the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. The communion service had two great objectives to ever keep in mind Jesus’ sacrifice on Calvary and to encourage His people with the assurance that He is coming back in glory.  

The Marriage Supper takes us beyond that event when God’s people are safe and secure in tile heavenly kingdom, and how wonderful that will be.

Rejecting the Invitation 

But right now the message of Revelation 18 'come out of her my people' is gathering the guests for this supper, and Probation will close the moment the last guest has accepted the invitation.

Isn’t it tragic that not all are accepting the invitation? They are making excuses, they are putting it off not realizing that this is the final call; that one day soon they will be food for vultures and ravenous birds.

Revelation 19:17,18 says, “And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
Verse 18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.”

This is the tragic result of rejecting the solemn warning of 'come out of her my people'. They had their chance but they failed to take it.

The parable of the ten virgins is a warning that even church members can become so careless that they too could be excluded from the Great Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

Downfall of Babylon 

In describing the downfall of Great Babylon in chapter 18, John the Revelator pictures how that men will weep and howl because of their lost fortunes, for the great banking businesses will come to a sudden end.

Great palaces, majestic mansions, skyscrapers, and so called fire proof buildings will burn like pitch. Utter despair will grip the hearts of all who have put their trust in Babylon.

The only thing that will stand in that day will be a godly character, and that will assure us of a place in the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.
