5/11/10 John sees an angel standing in the sun, which may be Jesus or a separate herald. The one who looks like the sun is Jesus, so this angel may be standing hear him or it may be him. This angel stands “constantly” in the sun. He called out to the birds to come to the feast, which is the alternative to the wedding feast of the Lamb. At this feast there is to be total destruction.
This call to the birds is an ancient language of personal combat. See, for instance, David and Goliath’s verbal sparring where they threaten to feed each other to the birds.
Next John sees the beast, the same beast as Rev 17 probably, and the kings of the earth. The other beast, the sea beast who is also the prostitute Babylon, has, by this point in the story, been destroyed by the scarlet beast. Now, the people see Jesus and the armies of heaven and they know they are doomed. They assemble to fight for their lives, but they are easily captured by Jesus.
The allusions here are to Eze 39 where it says that Topheth has been prepared. That was the place of human sacrifices offered to Molech. So Jesus, by the word or sword of his mouth, creates a lake of fire and burns them, and those not included in this fire are struck down by his glory and his word.
In the end, after all of the plages have devastated the planet and taken it nearly to complete ruin, this fire now finish it it off. The world is once again an abyss without form and void like it was in the beginning.
