The fall of Rome was like an earthquake

Revelation Bible Background

12.27.2017 – New Testament: Rev 18.19

To read the Bible in a year, read Revelation 18 on December 27, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

When Rome, the mighty power of the earth, would fall, it would affect many other nations, for they all traded with her and relied upon her in many ways. Therefore,

“They threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing, and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour she is made desolate’” (Revelation 18.19).

You cannot build a huge empire like Rome’s without affecting all the nations that surround it. Thus, when such an empire falls, there will be great wailing, for these people had not put their trust in the Lord, but in their own prosperity.

Questions:

  • In whom do you trust?
  • Why do you serve the Lord?
