After these things, I saw another angel coming down out of the sky, having great authority. The earth was illuminated with his glory. He cried with a mighty voice, saying, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, and she has become a habitation of demons, a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird! For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her sexual immorality, the kings of the earth committed sexual immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from the abundance of her luxury.” I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, that you have no participation in her sins, and that you don’t receive of her plagues, for her sins have reached to the sky, and God has remembered her iniquities. Return to her just as she returned, and repay her double as she did, and according to her works. In the cup which she mixed, mix to her double. However much she glorified herself, and grew wanton, so much give her of torment and mourning. For she says in her heart, ‘I sit a queen, and am no widow, and will in no way see mourning.’ Therefore in one day her plagues will come: death, mourning, and famine; and she will be utterly burned with fire; for the Lord God who has judged her is strong. The kings of the earth, who committed sexual immorality and lived wantonly with her, will weep and wail over her, when they look at the smoke of her burning, standing far away for the fear of her torment, saying, ‘Woe, woe, the great city, Babylon, the strong city! For your judgment has come in one hour.’ Rev 18:1-10 WEB
The prophetic time principle set by the precedent of Daniel is that one day of prophetic time equals one year of historic time. Now if one year of historic time equals one day of prophetic time, and there are 24 hours in a day, then 2 weeks of historic time equals one hour of prophetic time (12 months divided by 24 equals 2 weeks).
That means that in one year Babylon’s plagues will come, and in two weeks her judgment will come. Now if Babylon, the great city, is represented as the final incarnation of the Roman beast which has yet to receive judgment, that is, the Roman imperial system of ruling by crushing and grinding as iron crushes and grinds, then we will expect to see a swift judgment come against her, taking two weeks from start to finish. And then her plagues, begun by the swift judgment, will continue for one year.
Beloved, the year has begun, coinciding with the 2016 fall feasts (see The Seventh Bowl Poured Out), and will conclude with the 2017 fall feasts. This is amazingly important for anyone who realizes that the fall feasts prophesy of the 2nd coming of Messiah Yeshua. (I am not proclaiming a date for Yeshua’s return at all. I am just pointing out things to look at and consider.) For anyone interested in this, just limit your search of news headlines from Oct 1 to 31, 2016, and see what they have in common.
The two weeks likewise has already begun. I believe it began on October 26 and will conclude on November 9. I am saving relevant links to news headlines … so we will see … but if you have not come out of Babylon yet, I cannot stress this enough, now is the time!
