REVELATION 18:1-2, 21-23; 19:1-3, 9
After this, I saw another angel come down from heaven, with great
authority given to him; the earth shone with his glory. At the top of
his voice he shouted, 'Babylon has fallen, Babylon the Great has
fallen, and has become the haunt of devils and a lodging for every
foul spirit and dirty, loathsome bird. Then a powerful angel picked up
a boulder like a great millstone, and as he hurled it into the sea, he
said, 'That is how the great city of Babylon is going to be hurled
down, never to be seen again. Never again in you will be heard the
song of harpists and minstrels, the music of flute and trumpet; never
again will craftsmen of every skill be found in you or the sound of
the handmill be heard; never again will shine the light of the lamp in
you, never again will be heard in you the voices of bridegroom and
bride. Your traders were the princes of the earth, all the nations
were led astray by your sorcery. After this I heard what seemed to be
the great sound of a huge crowd in heaven, singing, 'Alleluia!
Salvation and glory and power to our God! He judges fairly, he
punishes justly, and he has condemned the great prostitute who
corrupted the earth with her prostitution; he has avenged the blood of
his servants which she shed.' And again they sang, 'Alleluia! The
smoke of her will rise for ever and ever.' The angel said, 'Write
this, "Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding feast of the
Lamb," ' and he added, 'These words of God are true.'

LUKE 21:20-28
'When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then you must realize
that it will soon be laid desolate. Then those in Judaea must escape
to the mountains, those inside the city must leave it, and those in
country districts must not take refuge in it. For this is the time of
retribution when all that scripture says must be fulfilled. Alas for
those with child, or with babies at the breast, when those days come!
'For great misery will descend on the land and retribution on this
people. They will fall by the edge of the sword and be led captive to
every gentile country; and Jerusalem will be trampled down by the
gentiles until their time is complete. 'There will be signs in the sun
and moon and stars; on earth nations in agony, bewildered by the
turmoil of the ocean and its waves; men fainting away with terror and
fear at what menaces the world, for the powers of heaven will be
shaken. And then they will see the Son of man coming in a cloud with
power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand
erect, hold your heads high, because your liberation is near at hand.'

Jesus' prophetic description of the end of time, the day of judgment,
and the destruction of Jerusalem was not new to the people of Israel;
the prophets had foretold these events many centuries earlier. But
their spiritual blindness, much like the blindness that affects many
today, kept them from recognizing the signs of the coming day of
judgment. Jesus was completely honest, he told his disciples what it
would cost to follow him; but he also promised that he would always be
with them, even in their darkest hour. The disciple who walks with
Christ may lose his body but not his soul.

We can be thankful because our hope is in Jesus and his promise to
return to fully establish his reign of peace and righteousness. His
coming will strike terror in those unprepared, and wonder in those who
are ready to meet him. When the Lord returns he will establish justice
and righteousness and he will vindicate all who have been faithful to
him. His judgment is a sign of hope for those who trust in him.
