Rev. 19:1 And after these things [after John is shown the judgment of Babylon the great: the great commercial center of the earth (Chapter 18)]
 I heard a great voice
[a.] of much people in heaven, saying,
[12.] Salvation, and
[13.] glory, and
[14.] honour, and
[aa.] unto the Lord our God:
[aa.] he hath judged the great whore*,
[111.] which did corrupt the earth
[aaa.] with her fornication, and
[ab.] [he] hath avenged the blood [from Abel to the two witnesses]
[111.] of his servants [Israel and the Church]
[aaa.] at her hand.
[*The great whore of Rev. 19:2 is: Mystery Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations (Rev. 17:5). In Chapter 18, John has just been shown God’s judgment of Babylon The Great, the world’s great commercial center. Yet, verse 19:2 calls this great commercial center “the great whore.” Both the great religious center (Mystery Babylon The Great), and the great commercial center of the earth (Babylon The Great), therefore, will be located in the same city: Babylon. (See: The Revelation of Babylon the Great: That Great City (Dubai); Dubai and Dubai Projects.)
HERE IS THE GREAT MYSTERY: EACH OF THE 8 GREAT WORLD KINGDOMS THAT HAVE OR WILL OPPRESS ISRAEL (Rev. 17:10-11) HAS HAD OR WILL HAVE ITS GREAT RELIGIOUS WHORE CITY.
For the revised Roman Empire that is yet to come, its 10 kings will destroy its great mystery religious city (Rev. 17:16). These kings then will give their power, authority, and kingdom to the Antichrist (Rev. 17:12-14, Rev. 17:16-17), who will form the eighth and final world kingdom to oppress Israel: the revived Grecian Empire. In fulfillment of Bible prophecy (Dan 9:27), the Antichrist will enter Jerusalem and desecrate the rebuilt temple. He will then consolidate church and state in the rebuilt city of "Babylon", which we believe to be Dubai (see also Dubai Projects). THEN THE GREAT MYSTERY: the spirit of the destroyed Mystery Babylon of the revised Roman Empire is resurrected in literal Babylon, as the great religious whore city of the revived Grecian Empire. This demonic religious spirit now demands universal worship of the Antichrist within the territories formerly ruled by Greece: whom God destroys (the city and the spirit) under the 7th vial of wrath (Rev. 16:19).]
19:3 And again they said,
And her smoke rose up
[aa.] for ever and ever [the smoke of destroyed Babylon will forever witness to God’s judgment of sin].
 the four and twenty elders and
 the four beasts [zoe]
[a.] fell down and
[b.] worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying,
Jesus reigns over the earth
19:5 And a voice came
 out of the throne,
[a.] Praise our God,
[11.] all ye his servants [the Church], and
[12.] ye that fear him,
[aa.] both small and great [c/p. Rev. 11:18].
 the voice
[a.] of a great multitude [the redeemed; Dan. 10:6], and as
 the voice
[a.] of many waters [Jesus; Rev. 1:15], and as
 the voice
[a.] of mighty thunderings [the Father],
 Alleluia: for the
[b.] God omnipotent
[on the earth]
19:7 Let us
 be glad and
 rejoice, and
 give honour to him:
[a.] for the marriage
[11.] of the Lamb
[aa.] is come,
[b.] and his wife
[aa.] made herself ready.
 to her was granted
[a.] that she should be arrayed in fine linen,
[11.] clean and
[13.] for the fine linen
[aa.] is the righteousness of saints.
19:9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed [are] they [on the earth] which are called unto the marriage supper** of the Lamb [c/p Rev. 19:17-19]. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him [c/p. Rev. 22:6-9].
 And he said unto me,
[a.] See [thou do it] not: I am
[11.] thy fellowservant [the Church], and
[12.] of thy brethren [Jewish] that have the testimony of Jesus (Rev. 1:2):
[b.] worship God:
[11.] for the testimony of Jesus
[aa.] is the spirit of prophecy.
This is the same messenger of:
15:1 And I saw another sign in heaven,
great and marvellous, seven
[messengers] having the seven last
plagues; for in them is filled up
the wrath of God.
And there came one of the seven
[messengers] which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me,
Come hither; I will show unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth
upon many waters:
[*Martyred Jewish saints [not angels] pour out the 7 vials of the wrath of God (Rev. 15:1; Rev. 15:6-8; Rev. 16:1; Rev. 17:1; Rev. 19:10; Rev. 21:9; Rev. 22:6-9; c/p. vs. Rev. 6:9-11. See Rev. 19:10, The Book of Revelation In Verse-by-Verse Outline).]
