<1>This time after the seventh Angel, this egoistical pursuance of the lower nature will be destroyed. The people will realize through the tribulation that egoistical pursuance ends up nowhere but to more ignorance, bondage, and unhappiness. That is why this Angel comes, and it is the time when Babylon (or the lower nature or the desire to have name, fame, and power) through the by-products of desire (ten horns) will fall. <2>It will be almost impossible through that tribulation to reach anywhere. Everyone will be so lost and unhappy that no one would even want name and fame. Name and fame will not mean anything to great people any longer.
<3>"All the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication," means that so many nations have pursued name and fame. That is why nations are considered to be great, because they are pursuing power, name, and fame. They think they are greater, because they have made the greater name or greater fame. <4>"And the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her." These kings also became kings to make name and fame for themselves instead of to establish justice. They built great cities, buildings, and castles, and made names for themselves.
<5>"And the merchants of the earth are waxed rich." The merchants were "waxed rich" through their greed. They became very rich and thought that it was the right way to live, but it is really from their lower natures. And that is why the voice comes from heaven and says, "Come out of her, my people." It means to come out of your lower natures and come to your higher natures.
<6>"That ye be not partakers of her sins" means, that you will not be one of those who will go to outer darkness. "That ye receive not of her plagues" means, that you will come to your higher natures and not be affected by the tribulations that will fall on those who are in their lower natures and are pursuing the Maya, causing them to be bound more and more in the ocean of illusion. Those who go out of their lower natures will be saved. His people will be saved.
<8>Those who stay in the world (earth), because of their attachments and engagement to it, cannot save themselves from these tribulations and will suffer as the changes come, even double.
<9>And that is the false ego. It is the lower nature of man that glorifies himself instead of following the Father, the Creator of this manifested universe. Then he might love God (universe) and so reach the higher self. And he thinks that he will never fall off, and that the throne he is sitting on is glorifying him.
<10>All the things of this world which they thought will save them will become obsolete.
<11>When the tools that these kings or the people who had been following their own egoistical ways are burned, they will not be able to follow their false egos any more, and "they shall bewail her, and lament for her."
<12>People will be completely astonished at how the egoistical pursuance and pagan doctrines are suddenly destroyed.
<13>The people will understand that the Mayaistic and egoistic pursuance of having all these things are just attractions of Maya. They will realize that they will be provided for and they have to use the rest of life in pursuing higher consciousness and eventually Pure Consciousness -- to be(come) Divine, the highest goal of the life.
<14>Everything will fall apart in a short period of time.
<15>Egoistical pursuance will fall, and the world will be with the Saints, Apostles, and Prophets.
<16>No egoistical things will be done any longer. Everything will be directed toward spiritual progress in that blessed world. The musicians, craftsmen, and all others will work in bringing happiness and bliss for all, but not for her (Babylon).
<17>It is the egoistical pursuance that have caused all the sorceries and deceitfulness of the nations. The sorceries are all the ways to make people believe that material gain is all there is.
<18>The people killed each other because of their selfish desires, being in their lower natures, and not understanding those who were in their higher natures (the Prophets).
