Read the Bible through with Yellow Creek Baptist Church:

The Fall of Babylon
Rev 18:1
  After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor. 
Rev 18:2  With a mighty voice he shouted: “‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!’ She has become a dwelling for demons and a haunt for every impure spirit, a haunt for every unclean bird, a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal. 
Rev 18:3  For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries. The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.” 
Rev 18:4  Then I heard another voice from heaven say: “‘Come out of her, my people,’ so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues; 
Rev 18:5  for her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her crimes. 
Rev 18:6  Give back to her as she has given; pay her back double for what she has done. Pour her a double portion from her own cup. 
Rev 18:7  Give her as much torment and grief as the glory and luxury she gave herself. In her heart she boasts, ‘I sit enthroned as queen. I am not a widow; I will never mourn.’ 
Rev 18:8  Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her: death, mourning and famine. She will be consumed by fire, for mighty is the Lord God who judges her. 
Rev 18:9  “When the kings of the earth who committed adultery with her and shared her luxury see the smoke of her burning, they will weep and mourn over her. 
Rev 18:10  Terrified at her torment, they will stand far off and cry: “‘Woe! Woe to you, great city, you mighty city of Babylon! In one hour your doom has come!’ 
Rev 18:11  “The merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her because no one buys their cargoes anymore— 
Rev 18:12  cargoes of gold, silver, precious stones and pearls; fine linen, purple, silk and scarlet cloth; every sort of citron wood, and articles of every kind made of ivory, costly wood, bronze, iron and marble; 
Rev 18:13  cargoes of cinnamon and spice, of incense, myrrh and frankincense, of wine and olive oil, of fine flour and wheat; cattle and sheep; horses and carriages; and human beings sold as slaves. 
Rev 18:14  “They will say, ‘The fruit you longed for is gone from you. All your luxury and splendor have vanished, never to be recovered.’ 
Rev 18:15  The merchants who sold these things and gained their wealth from her will stand far off, terrified at her torment. They will weep and mourn 
Rev 18:16  and cry out: “‘Woe! Woe to you, great city, dressed in fine linen, purple and scarlet, and glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls! 
Rev 18:17  In one hour such great wealth has been brought to ruin!’ “Every sea captain, and all who travel by ship, the sailors, and all who earn their living from the sea, will stand far off. 
Rev 18:18  When they see the smoke of her burning, they will exclaim, ‘Was there ever a city like this great city?’ 
Rev 18:19  They will throw dust on their heads, and with weeping and mourning cry out: “‘Woe! Woe to you, great city, where all who had ships on the sea became rich through her wealth! In one hour she has been brought to ruin!’ 
Rev 18:20  “Rejoice over her, you heavens! Rejoice, you people of God! Rejoice, apostles and prophets! For God has judged her with the judgment she imposed on you.” 
Rev 18:21  Then a mighty angel picked up a boulder the size of a large millstone and threw it into the sea, and said: “With such violence the great city of Babylon will be thrown down, never to be found again. 
Rev 18:22  The music of harpists and musicians, pipers and trumpeters, will never be heard in you again. No worker of any trade will ever be found in you again. The sound of a millstone will never be heard in you again. 
Rev 18:23  The light of a lamp will never shine in you again. The voice of bridegroom and bride will never be heard in you again. Your merchants were the world’s important people. By your magic spell all the nations were led astray. 
Rev 18:24  In her was found the blood of prophets and of God’s holy people, of all who have been slaughtered on the earth.” 

Rejoicing in Heaven
Rev 19:1
  After this I heard what sounded like the roar of a great multitude in heaven shouting: “Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God, 
Rev 19:2  for true and just are his judgments. He has condemned the great prostitute who corrupted the earth by her adulteries. He has avenged on her the blood of his servants.” 
Rev 19:3  And again they shouted: “Hallelujah! The smoke from her goes up for ever and ever.” 
Rev 19:4  The twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God, who was seated on the throne. And they cried: “Amen, Hallelujah!” 
Rev 19:5  Then a voice came from the throne, saying: “Praise our God, all you his servants, you who fear him, both great and small!” 
The Marriage Supper of the Lamb
Rev 19:6  Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: “Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns. 
Rev 19:7  Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. 
Rev 19:8  Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear.” (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of God’s holy people.) 
Rev 19:9  Then the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!” And he added, “These are the true words of God.” 
Rev 19:10  At this I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Don’t do that! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers and sisters who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For it is the Spirit of prophecy who bears testimony to Jesus.” 
The Rider on a White Horse
Rev 19:11  I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war. 
Rev 19:12  His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. 
Rev 19:13  He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. 
Rev 19:14  The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. 
Rev 19:15  Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.” He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. 
Rev 19:16  On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. 
Rev 19:17  And I saw an angel standing in the sun, who cried in a loud voice to all the birds flying in midair, “Come, gather together for the great supper of God, 
Rev 19:18  so that you may eat the flesh of kings, generals, and the mighty, of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, great and small.” 
Rev 19:19  Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to wage war against the rider on the horse and his army. 
Rev 19:20  But the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who had performed the signs on its behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur. 
Rev 19:21  The rest were killed with the sword coming out of the mouth of the rider on the horse, and all the birds gorged themselves on their flesh.  (NIV)
