SCRIPT:

John

I, John, was praying on the Island of Patmos when, suddenly, I am whisked up in the spirit and witnessed events in heaven leading to the great Marriage Feast of the Lamb.

Oh, listen! A great, powerful angel is making an announcement.

Angel

Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, for all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality, the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality. Woe! Woe! Woe!

Prompter & Companions

Woe! Woe! Woe!

John

Oh! That deafening thunder! Wait! It’s… It’s God’s voice!

Voice

Come out of her, my people. Do not participate in her sins, for her crimes have piled up as high as heaven.The rulers of the earth, who lived sensuously with her, will weep and lament over her when they see the smoke of her burning, standing at a distance because of the fear of her torment.

Angel

Woe, woe, you great city, Babylon! In one hour your judgment has come.Earth’s merchants weep over you, because no one buys your wares any more. Alas!

Prompter & Companions

Alas! Alas! Alas!

John

Oh look! The strong angel is liftinga huge stone. He ishurling it into the sea!

Angel

Thusyou, Babylon, the great city, will be thrown down with violence.Musicians will be heard in you no longer, and no craftsman will be found in you.The nations were deceived by your sorcery, and in you was found the blood of prophets and saints who have been slain on the earth.

John

Now I hear the voice of a great crowd like the sound of many oceans and mighty peals of thunder, shouting praises to the Almighty.

Angel

God reigns forever and ever!

Prompter & Companions

Forever and ever! Forever and ever!

Voice

Rejoice, for the marriage of the Lamb is prepared and His bride made ready. She is clothed in fine linen, bright and clean, the righteous acts of the saints.

Angel

John, write this down: “Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.”

John

I fall at the feet of the angel to worship him, but he lifts me up.

Angel

Don’t do that!Worship God. I’m only your servant, and theservant of your brothers who hold the testimony of Jesus, which is the spirit of prophecy.

John

Look!A white horse. Its riderhas the banner Faithful and True.

Angel

In righteousness He judges and wages war. His eyes are flames; He wears many crowns.

His name is the WORD OF GOD.

John

The armies of heaven, clothed in fine linen, are following Him on white horses.

Angel

That sharp sword that comes from His mouth strikes down nations.

He will rule them with a rod of iron. He is the KING OF KINGS, and LORD OF LORDS.

Prompter & Companions

KING OF KINGS, and LORD OF LORDS!

John

I see a great white throne and Him who sits on it, from whose presence the old earth and the old heaven have fled away. The dead, great and small, stand before the throne.

Books are opened, and the book of life.

The dead are judged from the things recorded in the books, according to their deeds.

The sea gives up the dead that have been in it, and death and Hades give up the dead that were in them. They are all judged, every one, according to their deeds.

Angel

If one’s name is not found in the book of life, he’ll becast into that lake of fire.

John

I see a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth have passed away! I see the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband.

Angel

Look! The dwelling of God is among men; He is living among them, and they are His people. God Himself has wiped away every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death.

There will no longer be any mourning, crying or pain; these things have all passed away.

At last! Eternal joy!

Prompter & Companions

Eternal Joy! Eternal joy!
