E.W. Bullinger—Commentary on Revelation
"In the Spirit and Power of Elias"
The Sun Rising Upon a Dark World
Covenanting Adapted to the Moral Constitution of Man.
I ordained and anointed you as the mighty angelic guardian. You had access to the holy mountain of God and walked among the stones of fire.
Loot the silver! Plunder the gold! There's no end to Nineveh's treasures--its vast, uncounted wealth.
So the angel took me in the Spirit into the wilderness. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that had seven heads and ten horns, and blasphemies against God were written all over it.
The woman wore purple and scarlet clothing and beautiful jewelry made of gold and precious gems and pearls. In her hand she held a gold goblet full of obscenities and the impurities of her immorality.
They will stand at a distance, terrified by her great torment. They will cry out, "How terrible, how terrible for you, O Babylon, you great city! In a single moment God's judgment came on you."
They will cry out as they watch the smoke ascend, and they will say, "Where is there another city as great as this?"
And they will weep and throw dust on their heads to show their grief. And they will cry out, "How terrible, how terrible for that great city! The shipowners became wealthy by transporting her great wealth on the seas. In a single moment it is all gone."
