“And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.”
King James Version (KJV)
21:9 And there came one of the seven angels that had the seven phials - Whereby room had been made for the kingdom of God. Saying, Come, I will show thee the bride - The same angel had before showed him Babylon, #Rev 17:1|, which is directly opposed to the new Jerusalem.
Re 21:9 There came unto me one of the seven angels. This is one of the angels of the bowls of the wrath of God. See Re 16:2-4,8,10,12,17. They did their work as wrath angels before the judgment, and are now seen engaged in other work. I will shew thee the Bride, the Lamb's wife. The glorified church henceforth to be united with her Lord.
