Vision of the Angel with the Gospel

And I saw another angel flying in (A)midheaven with (B)an eternal gospel to preach to (C)those who [a]live on the earth, and to (D)every nation, tribe, language, and people; and he said with a loud voice, “(E)Fear God and (F)give Him glory, because the hour of His judgment has come; worship Him who (G)made the heaven and the earth, and sea and (H)springs of waters.”

And another angel, a second one, followed, saying, “[b](I)Fallen, fallen is (J)Babylon the great, she who has (K)made all the nations drink of the (L)wine of the [c]passion of her sexual immorality.”

Doom for Worshipers of the Beast

Then another angel, a third one, followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone (M)worships the beast and his (N)image, and receives a (O)mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he also will drink of the (P)wine of the wrath of God, which is mixed [d]in full strength (Q)in the cup of His anger; and he will be tormented with (R)fire and [e]brimstone in the presence of the (S)holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11 And the (T)smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; (U)they have no rest day and night, those who (V)worship the beast and his (W)image, and [f]whoever receives the (X)mark of his name.” 12 Here is (Y)the [g]perseverance of the [h]saints who (Z)keep the commandments of God and [i](AA)their faith in Jesus.
