“And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.”
King James Version (KJV)
18:1 And I saw another angel coming down out of heaven - Termed another, with respect to him who came down out of heaven, #Rev 10:1|. And the earth was enlightened with his glory - To make his coming more conspicuous. If such be the lustre of the servant, what images can display the majesty of the Lord, who has thousand thousands of those glorious attendants ministering to him, and ten thousand times ten thousand standing before him?
Re 18:1 The Doomed City SUMMARY OF REVELATION 18: The Fall of Babylon Decreed. The People of God Commanded to Come Out of Her. The Kings of the Earth Lament Over Her Fall. The Merchants and Traffickers Also Lament. The Millstone Cast into the Sea. After these things. Those described in chapter 17. Another angel. Some have urged that this is Christ. There is no proof of their correctness. Having great power. There was assigned to him great authority. And the earth was lightened with his glory. This was a proof of power proceeding from God.
