Revelation of John 19[The] light of a lamp will never shine in you again, and [the] voices of a bride and bridegroom will never call out in you again. For your merchants were the great ones of the earth, because all the nations were deceived by your sorcery.” 1 And there was found in her [the] blood of prophets and saints, and of all who had been slain on the earth. 2
Rejoicing in Heaven3 After this I heard [a sound] like [the] roar of a great multitude in heaven, shouting: “Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God! 4 For His judgments [are] true and just. He has judged the great prostitute who corrupted the earth with her immorality. He has avenged the blood of His servants [ that was poured ] out by her hand.” 5 And a second time they called out: “Hallelujah! Her smoke ascends forever [and] ever.” 6 And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who sits on the throne, saying: “Amen, Hallelujah!” 7 Then a voice came from the throne, saying: “Praise our God, all [you] who serve Him, and those who fear Him, small and great [alike] !”
The Marriage of the Lamb8 And I heard [a sound] like [the] roar of a great multitude, like [the] rushing of many waters, and like a mighty rumbling of thunder, crying out: “Hallelujah! For our Lord God, the Almighty, reigns. 9 Let us rejoice and be glad and give Him the glory. For the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His bride has made herself ready. 10 She was given clothing of fine linen, bright [and] pure.” For the fine linen [ she wears ] is the righteous acts of the saints. 11 Then [the angel] told me to write, “Blessed [are] those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are the true words of God.” 12 [So] I fell at his feet to worship him. [But] he told me, “Do not do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your brothers who rely on the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”
The Rider on the White Horse13 Then I saw heaven standing open, and there before me was a white horse. And its rider is called Faithful and True. With righteousness He judges and wages war. 14 He [has] eyes like blazing fire, and many royal crowns on His head. He has a name written [on Him] that only He Himself knows. 15 He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, ▼
▼WH sprinkled with bloodand His name is The Word of God. 16 The armies of heaven, dressed in fine linen, white [and] pure, follow Him on white horses. 17 And from His mouth proceeds a sharp sword with [which] to strike down the nations, and He will rule them with an iron scepter. ▼
▼Psalm 2:9He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God, the Almighty. 18 And He has a name written on [His] robe and on His thigh: King of kings and Lord of lords.
Defeat of the Beast and False Prophet19 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and he cried out in a loud voice to all the birds flying overhead, “Come, gather together for the great supper of God, 20 so that you may eat [the] flesh of kings and commanders and mighty [men] , of horses and riders, of all [men] slave and free, small and great.” 21 Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth [with] their armies assembled to wage war against the [One] seated on the horse, and against His army.
