Revelation 18 11 24 The Love of Money Brings Disaster 

1Tim. 6:10 For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil,

John 2:16 and to those who were selling  the doves He said, “Take these things away; stop making  My Father’s house a  place of business.”

2Pet. 2:3 and in their  greed they will  exploit you with  false words;  their judgment from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.

The amount of Internet stealing is huge. 

The results of stealing is huge.

Rev. 18:11   “And the  merchants of the earth  weep and mourn over her, because no one buys their cargoes any more —  

12 cargoes of  gold and silver and precious  stones and pearls and fine linen and purple and silk and scarlet, and every kind of citron wood and every article of ivory and every article made from very costly wood and  bronze and iron and marble,  

13 and cinnamon and  spice and incense and perfume and frankincense and wine and olive oil and fine flour and wheat and cattle and sheep, and cargoes of horses and chariots and  slaves and   human lives.  

14 “The fruit  you long for has gone from you, and all things that were luxurious and splendid have passed away from you and men will no longer find them. 

15 “The  merchants of  these things, who became rich from her, will  stand at a distance because of the fear of her torment, weeping and mourning,  

16 saying, ‘ Woe, woe, the great city, she who  was clothed in fine linen and purple and scarlet, and  adorned with gold and precious  stones and pearls;  

17 for in  one hour such great wealth has been laid  waste!’ And  every shipmaster and every  passenger and sailor, and as many as make their living by the sea,  stood at a distance, 

18 and were  crying out as they  saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘ What city is like  the great city?’  

19 “And they threw  dust on their heads and were crying out, weeping and mourning, saying, ‘ Woe, woe, the great city, in which all who had ships at sea  became rich by her  wealth, for in  one hour she has been laid  waste!’  

20 “ Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you  saints and  apostles and prophets, because  God has  pronounced judgment for you against her.”

Rev. 18:21   Then  a  strong angel  took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, “So will Babylon,  the great city, be thrown down with violence, and  will not be found any longer.  

22 “And  the sound of harpists and musicians and flute-players and trumpeters will not be heard in you any longer; and no craftsman of any craft will be found in you any longer; and the  sound of a mill will not be heard in you any longer;  

23 and the light of a lamp will not shine in you any longer; and the  voice of the bridegroom and bride will not be heard in you any longer; for your  merchants were the great men of the earth, because all the nations were deceived  by your sorcery.  

24 “And in her was found the  blood of prophets and of saints and of  all who have been slain on the earth.”

She is condemned to death and her victims will be resurrected to eternal life.
