“Again they said, ‘Alleluia! Her smoke rises up forever and ever!‘”
Again they said, “Alleluia! Her smoke rises up forever and ever!”
The saints give a special “alleluia” for the eternal destruction of Babylon. The reason behind this “alleluia” is that God is just in His dealings. He defeated one world religion and one world government. All false religions will go. There will be no more cults or teachers of false doctrine. God will put down the high priest of religion, Satan himself. All demons that run “religion” today will depart.
Jesus will completely remove all religion from the world. Then He will establish a perfect environment in the Millennium. In this, He will establish that humans must depend on God.
Only God can establish a perfect environment for humanity.
Humans and human ingenuity can never establish this perfect environment. The history of the world proves this. Jesus will do what no other man could do-establish a perfect environment in the Millennium.
Because of Jesus’ ability to establish a perfect environment, the saints specially affirm Him with “alleluia.” It is remarkable that the word “hallelujah” does not occur in the New Testament until the book of Revelation. The word does not occur in Revelation until chapter nineteen, which deals with the Second Coming of Christ. The Second Coming of Christ is the event that defeats Babylonianism.
