Wake up - sleepy head, rub your eyes, get out of bed.
Wake up, the Wicked Witch is dead. She's gone where the goblins go,

Ding Dong' the merry-oh, sing it high, sing it low. Let them know
The Wicked Witch is dead!

V2 Angel announces death of woman
Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!
She has become a home for demons
And a haunt for every unclean & detestable bird
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.

V4 “ANOTHER VOICE”
Who is it?
Where’s it from? Heaven
What’s it say?
Come out of her…MY PEOPLE
Angels don’t have “people”
Has to be the LORD!
Why the call?
So you won’t share in her sins
Gets double what she gave out
Much torture
Much grief
So you won’t receive her plagues
Plagues in one day…
Death
Mourning
Famine
Consumed by fire

HOW DOES ONE “COME OUT”?
II Chr. 7:14
If “MY PEOPLE”…[heard that before]
Who are called by My name…
Will humble themselves…
And pray…
And seek my face…
And turn from their wicked ways…
Then will I hear from heaven…
And will forgive their sin…
And will heal their land…

V20 Rejoice over her, O heaven!
Rejoice, saints & apostles & prophets!
God has judged her for the way she has treated you.
If you can’t “REJOICE” the witch is dead…you must be a citizen of that city!?!?

V9 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. Terrified at her torment, they will stand far off and cry: Woe! Woe, O great city
O Babylon, city of power
In one hour your doom has come

V11 merchants will weep & mourn

V19 sea captain…throw dust on their heads, w/ weeping & mourning

CONCLUSION:
Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead
Whose side are you on?
Who are you devoted to?
Now you know who wins & who loses.
You may have a choice to make.
