<1>The battle will be in Armageddon, which means "world."
<3>The earthquake is always a symbol of the disruption of the old order in society and the coming of a new order to humanity. So the new revelation, or the new set-up of rules and system, will be revealed to humanity. The old order will fall off just like an earthquake which destroys the earth. <4>Everything will fall off the earth and a new kind of understanding, revelation, and set of rules and regulations will be established.
<5>After the seventh Angel reveals the great truth, the tribulation will come over the cities. The cities will fall and the great multitude of people who were thinking that they would last forever will fall. The great Babylon will come to the memory of God, and God will say, "Now is the time to 'give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of [my] wrath.'" <6>He will destroy that Babylon, which is the egoistical pursuance for selfish gain and fame. As we remember in Genesis, they said, "Go to, let us build us a city and a tower,...and let us make us a name" (Gen. 11:4). So the pursuance that is for making a name and fame is related to the great city Babylon.
<7>The great people are like islands. Others who needed comfort would go to them but those people like islands, had fled away. No one would be helping anyone because all were so attached and wrapped up in the selfish desires and power of Maya that there was no "island" (comforter) for rest.
<8>"And the mountains were not found": The great people who were like mountains for humanity and could be leaned on because of their greatness were no longer around. <9> Everyone in the world would be completely lost.
<10>The last tribulation will come and great troubles will plague humanity. Humans will be so lost in the tribulation and the pursuance of the Mayaistic and egoistical things that each person will feel just like having a great stone of hail fall upon them. They will not know what to do with their weight, and they will not understand and find a way out. <11>Their minds will become more and more gross and crudified. They will not understand that the only way is to go back to God, understand the ways of the Spirit, give up the egoistical pursuance, and come to sharing, caring, and understanding that, "The earth has enough for everyone's need, but not enough for everyone's greed" (Mahatma Gandhi).
