Revelation 18


There Shall No Flesh be Saved!
Revelation 18 from The Chronological Gospels

(Mystery Babylon Destroyed)

18:1 After these things I saw another angel come down from heaven. He had great power, and the earth was lit with his glory. 2He cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, “Babylon the great has fallen. She has fallen and has become the habitation of demons, and the cell for every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and detestable bird. 3All nations have drunk the wine of her passion for sexual immorality. The kings of the earth have committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth have grown wealthy through the abundance of her excesses and luxuries.” 4Then I heard another voice from heaven, crying, “Come out of her my people, so that you not be partakers of her sins, and that you do not participate in her plagues! 5Her sins have reached to heaven, and YHVH has remembered her iniquities. 6Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double her punishment twice according to her works – and in the same cup which she has filled, fill it back to her twice over. 7In the same measure that she has praised herself and lived wantonly, reward her with as much torment and sorrow. For she has said in her heart, ‘I sit a queen! I am no widow, and will see no sorrow!’{1} 8Her plagues will come in one day – death, and mourning, and famine – and she will be utterly burned with fire. Mighty is YHVH your Elohim, who judges her. 9The kings of the earth who have committed adultery with her and lived extravagantly shall bewail her and lament for her when they see the smoke of her burning. 10Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, they will cry, ‘Alas! Alas, that great and mighty city Babylon! In one hour has her judgment come!’ 11The merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her, because no man will buy their merchandise any more. 12The cargoes of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and incense, and various implements of ivory, and various furnishings of precious wood, and brass, and iron, and marble, 13and cinnamon, and fragrance, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and the souls of men. 14The things that your soul lusted after have departed from you. All the things that were intricate and beautiful have departed from you, and you will never see them again.”

{18:7.1} Isaiah prophesied of the final judgment of Babylon in the last days with these same words: “I shall be a queen for ever… 8I shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children” (Isaiah 47:7-8). The Greek version of the book of Isaiah (LXX or Septuagint) was completed more than 200 years before this revelation was given to Yochanan, yet it details Babylon’s utter destruction for the same reason as is revealed in the revelation to Yochanan – “the proliferation of your Pharmakia” (see footnote following Revelation 18:23).”

“15“The merchants who were made wealthy by her shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, 16and saying, ‘ALAS! That great city that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! 17In one hour all her great riches have come to nothing!’ Every shipmaster, and all who travel by ship, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, shall stand afar off 18and cry when they see the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What city is like unto this great city!’ 19They will cast dust on their heads, and weep, and wail, and cry, ‘ALAS! That great city, whereby all that had ships in the sea were made rich because of her vast wealth! In one hour she has been made desolate.’ 20Rejoice over her, heaven, and holy apostles, and prophets – YHVH has avenged you on her!”

21Then a mighty angel took up a stone, like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, “With great violence that great city Babylon will be thrown down, and will never be seen again! 22The sound of harpers, and musicians, and pipers, and trumpeters shall never be heard again in you. No craftsman of any craft shall ever be found in you again – nor will the sound of a millstone be heard ever again in you. 23aThe light of a candle will never again shine in you – neither will the voice of the bridegroom or the voice of the bride ever be heard in you again!” Why?

(The Reason for Mystery Babylon’s Destruction)

23b“…because the merchants of Babylon are the great men of the earth, and by their pharmakia{1} all the nations of the earth were deceived. 24And because in her was found the blood of prophets, and of the saints, and of all who were slain upon the earth!”)

(end of parenthesis beginning 17:1))

{18:23.1} Rather than use the KJV translation sorceries, the transliteration of the Greek <farmakia> pharmakia is maintained and explained in its prophetic context.

Seven hundred years before John, Yochanan, penned these prophetic pictures, the prophet Elijah, Yeshayahu, declared the very same outcome for those who labor in the pharmakia of the “daughters” of Babylon (Isaiah 47:9, 12). Although Yeshayahu originally penned his prophetic words in Hebrew, the Jewish sages who translated his words into Greek understood the context of his prophecy and accurately translated the Hebrew word keshef (sometimes translated sorcery) as the Greek word <farmakia> pharmakia – which literally means poison. Pharmakia is in direct opposition to meat okhlah, which was created for the physical nurturing and sustenance of mankind.

Laboratory-created substances, such as are found in most drugs and “food items” on modern grocery shelves, were never historically called food (okhlah) nor were they designed by the Creator for human consumption. These substances are what the prophets futuristically termed pharmakia. They would include any laboratory constructed drug or food additive, genetically modified plant or animal, and the manipulation of any living food source to the point of it being unable to naturally reproduce itself, including the removal of the ability to make seeds and the creation of terminator plants and seeds. The merchants of Babylon, the great men of the earth, are manipulating, controlling, enslaving, and destroying the human race through their pharmakia, while they deceive the public through their agencies and agents who manipulate governments with vast sums of money. If the manipulation of the food supply is not stopped by the hand of the Almighty, “there shall no flesh be saved!” At the sounding of the seventh trumpet, the angel announces, “He will now destroy those who destroyed the earth.” The destruction of Babylon and its pharmakia industry is just the start of Messiah ruling the nations with a rod of iron.

The following verses (Isaiah 47:1-15) are from Yeshayahu’s prophecy concerning the final judgment of Babylon. The Greek word pharmakia is supplied from the Septuagint.

Isaiah 47:1 Come over and sit in the dust, so-called “virgin” daughter of Babylon. Sit on the ground because you have no throne, O daughter of Chaldea. You will no more be called either delicate or dainty. 2Take millstones and grind your meal. Let your hair down, hike up your skirt, and [invite the nations in]. 3Your gross immorality will be exposed. Your prostitution will be known to all. I will take vengeance upon you. I will not come to you as one of your lovers 4but as the one who exacts judgment – as YHVH-Tze’vaot – that is my name! The Holy One of Israel! 5Shut your mouth and sit in the dark, you daughter [prostitute] of the Chaldeans. You will no longer be called “the Queen of kingdoms.” 6When I was angry with my people, I allowed my inheritance to become polluted, and they were given over into your hand. You showed them no mercy, and from the beginning you have laid a heavy yoke upon them. 7And when you said, “I shall be a queen forever,” you did not take these things to heart, nor did you stop to consider the end result of your deeds! 8So now hear this, you who are given to pleasures, you who lived with no consideration for anyone but yourself, you who said in your heart, “I am, and there is no one else. I will never be a widow, nor will I ever lose my children.” 9Ha! These two things shall come upon you in a moment – in just one day! The loss of your children and widowhood. They will come upon you as the final result of the profuse proliferation of your pharmakia – and the great abundance of your pharmakia associations.

“10Because you have trusted in your crafty, twisted perversions and convinced yourself that no one could see you, your stupidity (which you call wisdom) and your ignorance (which you call knowledge) have perverted you. Because you have said in your heart, “I am, and there is no one other than me,” 11therefore evil will come upon you, and you will have no idea from whence it came. Destruction will fall upon you, and you will not be able to shake it off. Desolation will come upon you suddenly, and you will never know what hit you! 12Go ahead! Stand with your pharmakia associations and with the great abundance of the pharmakia in which you have labored since your youth! If you think you can really profit from it – go ahead – reap your profits! 13You only weary yourself with the multitude of your co-conspirators – but have it your way – let the astrologers, the stargazers, and the monthly prognosticators stand up and save you from the things that shall come upon you. 14They will be like stubble in the furnace. The fire will incinerate them, and they will not even be able to deliver themselves from the power of the flame. ”

“They will not be around long enough for you to warm yourself by sitting in front of their embers. 15This is what will happen to everyone who has labored with you – even the merchants who have done business with you from their youth. Every one of them is going to run for cover when the brimstone hits the fan. No one will be around to save you! (Isaiah 47:1-15, MIV (Marine Infantry Version)).”
