.
CLUES REGARDING BABYLON - DANIEL 1:1,2
 
     The last day Elijah message, here in Revelation 14, now turns to a second angel in verse 8.  It declares the apostasy of Babylon.  The fall of Babylon is continuous, ongoing.  It makes all nations drink and they drink the wine of it's impurity and drinking the wine brings wrath.  But what is Babylon here in Revelation 14?  This is the first time that Babylon is used in Revelation.  We find our clues from the Old Testament, especially the book of Daniel.

II. Babylon is intolerant in enforcing false worship on pain of death.  (Daniel 3)

III. God warns Babylon by giving revelations of His character.

      B) His sovereignty (Daniel 2)
      C) His power to deliver (Daniel 3)
      D) His correction (Daniel 4)
      E) His judgment (Daniel 5)
