This title is take from the very popular Monday Football segment when Dandy Don Meredith, would sing “Turn out the lights, the party’s over.” He sang it when the game was no longer in doubt. It was fun times for MNF with the trio of Howard Cosell, Frank Gifford and Don Meredith. Part of the title is taken from verse 23, “And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee...” There is coming a day when the One who is the Light of the world, will turn out the lights of the world. The code name that is used here for the world is “Babylon.”
In Biblical thought, Babylon represents several things: It represents a Place. The city of Babylon is mentioned more than 260 times in the Bible; more than any other city with the exception of Jerusalem. It represents a Power. The city of Babylon was the headquarters of one of the greatest kings who ever lived, Nebuchadnezzar. It represents a Philosophy. The first mention of Babel is found in Genesis 11. It was man’s first attempt to establish a kingdom, a state, a religion, a way of life and thought that totally excluded God. Babylon is a picture of the spiritual, moral, intellectual and philosophical rebellion of this world against God since the beginning of time. Nimrod, the ruler of the first Babylon, is a picture, of the antichrist who will rule over the last Babylon.
In Revelation 17 we witnessed the fall of spiritual Babylon. Here in Revelation 18 we see the fall of political and economical Babylon. The Bible teaches that in the last days the economical and political sub-structure that holds this world together, will fall like a house of cards.
