Rejoice Over Her
Revelation 18:20 KJV
“Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.”
God never asks us to rejoice over anyone who is been punished or thrown into hell permanently, but here, God is encouraging us to rejoice over the vengeance that He is realising on our behalf.
However, this vengeance is not specifically against unbelievers. Because if we compare Babylon with the church, it is not the world or unbelievers but it is actually a fake church, a church that pretends to be like the church where it is exalted itself above the purposes of God.
God is upset with the way that Babylon has hurt Jerusalem (which refers to the church) by compromising other things for immediate benefit. But God is not coming for the “Babylon” but for “Jerusalem” the pure church.
It is a fact that its not the fundamental anti-christian groups that is hurting the church today as much as the leaders and ministers in the church who don’t have a true revelation and relationship with God.
But God says that He is going to avenge us from these kind of churches!
In these last days, the judgement will first begin with the house of God. So when God judges these kind of people don’t be sad but rejoice, because when God judges He sees if they will repent and turn back to God.
And this is the reason for us to celebrate and worship God because that is how we as a church will be purified and set apart.
