In Revelation chapter 14, three angels appear one after the other within a prophetic vision of John. Every angel has a specific message. The meaning of the angel’s second message is broken down below.

A warning follows upon request

After the first of the three angels had announced his message, the second angel followed immediately in John’s prophetic vision according to Revelation 14. While the first angel’s message emphasized God as the only adorable, true and living creator God, the second angel describes the dangers posed by the earthly adversary. It is, first and foremost, a dire warning.

The message of the second angel

Message

The second angel announces his message

The voice of the first angel had barely faded away when the second angel appeared. He also has a message that is important for humanity’s survival. The book of Revelation 14:8 describes the appearance of the second angel and this messenger of the Lord proclaims the following:

And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

Fallen, fallen – Mene, mene

This message contains a cautionary note. The second angel calls out “favor” twice in his message, one after the other, and not without reason. Such an announcement has already occurred in history, in the year 539 BC. It was the year when the Empire of Babylon was replaced by the Medo-Persians. The last rulers of Babylon were King Nabonides and his son and co-regent Belshazzar. While Nabonides directed the empire’s religious affairs, Belshazzar was responsible for the state.

The seat of government, Babel, was considered impregnable. The magnificent yellow and blue city walls and gates were huge and extremely massive. Belshazzar therefore felt very safe and unassailable in this city. One day Belshazzar held a feast. The wine flowed freely. In his arrogance, the co-regent ordered the golden vessels looted from the Temple of Jerusalem to be brought. Belshazzar, in his feast, began to drink the wine from these vessels. The camel’s back of his crimes was overflowing. God wrote a saying with his finger on the wall of the banquet hall that is still very common today: “Mene mene tekel upharsin” (Daniel 5:25). The abbreviated form “Menetekel” is known from this today.

The announcement of the fall of Babylon

These words were the announcement of the downfall of Babylon, including Belshazzar and Nabonides. That same night, the Medo-Persians conquered the capital, thus ending the ancient empire of Babylon. Belshazzar died while Nabonides was not present. At this time he was residing on the Arabian Peninsula. But his power in the former Babylon was broken.

The focus here is on “Mene”, which is also written twice and one after the other. This word means “God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it.” (Daniel 5:26). God wrote it on the wall twice. Once for Nabonides and once for Belshazzar. Both spheres of power, the religious and the state, should be destroyed.

Just as God ended ancient Babylon with a double “Mene,” so the prophetic Babylon in Revelation will also come to an end with a double “Fall.” The spiritual Babylon, which began to emerge in the times of the apostles and is still in this world today, holds the scepter and the orb in its hands. The religious and secular power. Both are subject to this Babylon (Info). The “Mene” of ancient Babylon is the “Fallen” of today’s Babylon.

Babylon is a big city

The message of the second angel contains the information that Babylon is (also) a large city. A city that exists until its demise due to the final intervention of God. The current Babylon is both a religious and a secular power. There is only one church in history that was able to claim both spheres of power and can now do so again, and is also named after a city. It is the Roman Catholic Church, or the Church of Rome.

In addition to this “wink with the fence post” in relation to the city of Rome, the Bible also provides numerous other references, all of which point to the church that shaped the Middle Ages into a “dark time”. (Info).

A great city of religion – Rome

Only one religion has a city in its name

According to the angel’s second message, this “great city” watered all (heathen) peoples with the wine of the wrath of her fornication. The wine in the Bible stands, among other things (also for the blood of Jesus Christ), for the word of God or the gospel. It is therefore a religious teaching. The wine of the wrath of her fornication, however, is a false teaching, a heresy that has nothing to do with the gospel. This confirms above all the clear statement in Revelation 18:3 (Judgment of Babylon):
For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

False teaching, to all people of the nations, heads of government and those in charge of the economy included. They all believed and followed the false teaching of this Babylon. What this false doctrine actually looks like is already obvious (Info).

Summary Message from the Second Angel:

– Today’s religious and secular power has fallen away from God
– Both areas of Babylon’s power will be destroyed
– Babylon has seduced (almost) all of humanity with her false teaching
– Every single description in the Bible points to the Church of Rome
