18 chapter of the book of Revelation

177. After these things I saw another Angel , Rev.18:1.

Another Angel is the Christ, see.d.e.72, 78, 142, 147, 148. After capture and ruin of Jerusalem by nations two Prophets Gods still will be on the ground; it will be last months of their testimony (and the first months of authority of beast - the antichrist) Rev.13:5. At that time will appear the Great sign of the Son of man in the sky, Mat.24:30. Apostle John as one of two Prophets will see this Sign - will see another Angel , that is the Lord. The Earth will be shined with this sign. Jesus will appear for announcing the Judgment of God over peoples, Rev.14:6, 7 see also d.e. 142,149. Jesus will mention and about falling of the harlot, Rev.18:2. The sign will be for all people on the ground, shortly before Coming of Jesus.

178. And I heard another voice from heaven , Rev.18:4.

The voice belongs to Jesus, but it sounds a little ahead of time occurrences of the Great sign, see d.e. 177. At occurrence of a great sign the harlot has already fallen, Rev 18:2 whereas at another voice she still exists and moreover, it is necessary to leave her environment for all true Christians, Rev.18:4. To be united with the Babylonian harlot and will enter into her numbers to force all Christians where they lived, and for refusal - prosecutions and death. To supervise over prosecutions and to call temporal authority for reprisals against refused there will be ministers of universal-Babylonian church, then already incorporated with the main spiritual center in Jerusalem, even before its destruction. Luxury of the harlot and prosecution of sincere children of God by her will proceed not less than 21 months, and punishment of the harlot and her torments - it is twice more (Rev.18:6,7) that is 42 months. So mush there will be in desolation Jerusalem, served as "headquarters" for the harlot. All these events will be shortly before Coming of Jesus.

179. Plagues, mourning, famine, death and burning of the harlot, Rev.18:8.

In the ministering of whorish church the frankincense is used, Rev.18:13. Her jewelry and gold were temporal, material, Rev.18:12 while the Lord advises to buy gold, tried in the fire , Rev.3:18. She did not care of white clothes to put on, but put on in "apparelings" of fine linen and purple, Rev.18:16. The court about burning the harlot will be passed by apostles and prophets, Rev.18:20*, sitting on 24 seats. Commonly-Babylonian the harlot is fitting of this court wherefore blood of Prophets and saints and all killed on the earth (Rev.18:24) is found in her main city personified her all "ministering". For it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem, Luke 13:33. These words of the Lord once again confirm, that under whorish city means Jerusalem; certainly, not walls, stones and sand of this city, but its clergy and its religious leaders betraying and persecuted righteous men, Mat.23:34,35, those leaders who killed the Jesus. Some of the Apostles were killed from approval of same religious "top", Acts 12:3. Heirs of "Jerusalem belief (i.e.crusaders) too has killed in the name of liberation of Jerusalem and they were directed by hand of the same whorish church.

The note: *like this in Russian Bible.
