Four Hallelujahs by Zac Poonen

After these things I heard, as it were, a loud voice of a great
multitude in heaven, saying, “Hallelujah! salvation and glory and
power belong to our God; because His judgments are true and righteous;
for He has judged the great harlot who was corrupting the earth with
her immorality, and He has avenged the blood of His bond-servants on her”’ (Rev.19:1-2)

“Hallelujah” is a wonderful word that means “Praise the Lord.” It
occurs only FOUR times in the New Testament - all four here in
Revelation 19:1-6!! It is interesting to note that the first time
that the word “Hallelujah” occurs in the New Testament is when Babylon
the harlot has been judged. We too should be shouting “Hallelujah”
for that! But charismatics who are still sitting in Babylon may not be
able to say “Hallelujah” to that - because the magic spell of the
sorcery of Babylon has deceived them!! One translation of this verse
says that Babylon was “the one who poisoned the earth with her immorality.”
Only a few drops of poison are needed to make a glass of milk deadly.
That’s how Babylon has corrupted the Christian faith - by mixing the poison
of man’s traditions with truth. God now avenges the blood of His bondservants on her.
