1st Message

This first messenger is said to have “the everlasting gospel” to preach to the people that live on the

earth. He summons earth’s millions to reverence God and to worship the Creator of heaven and earth

because “the hour of His judgment is come!”

2nd Message

“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.” –Revelation 14:8

The second messenger announces the moral fall of “mystical Babylon”.

3rd Message

“And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his

image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the

wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be

tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the

Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day

nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith

of Jesus.” –Revelation 14:9-12

This third angel declares the awesome judgments that will befall the worshipper of the beast and his

image and whoever is a recipient of his mark.

This leaves us with a lot of questions. But taking note of these texts we do know that:

1. These messages, given by God, have to do with religion in view of the use of the word “worship”

2. We learn that Babylon—some power which influences the whole world—will collapse. We therefore

need to identify what “Babylon” is.

3. We know that a power—here called “the beast”—will enforce a type of worship which is opposed to

the worship of God. We therefore need to identify who this “beast” power is.

4. We also see that this beast has an image, which will give support to the work of the beast. So we

need to identify who the “image” of the beast is.

5. We see that the beast power enforces its mark—“The mark of the beast”. We need to identify what

this “mark” is.

6. Last, but more importantly, God says that those who submit to this power when its mark is

enforced will in effect be committing the unpardonable sin and will be subject to the judgments of

God to be lost for eternity. We therefore need to find out how to avoid this mark—whatever is may be.

To reveal the identity of “Babylon”, “the “Beast”, the “Image to the Beast”, and the “Mark of the Beast”

a comprehensive study of the Bible is required—much more than it would be possible to fit on this

piece of paper.

In the meantime let’s look at a few more important questions;
