The second Angel – 1st Cup
The second angel delivered the first cup of God’s horror.

Babylon means: the gate of bel(a heathen god) and confusion. The original city was founded by Nimrod.

It is used in Revelation as the symbol of a great and wicked religious system (see Revelation 17), to be destroyed under the seventh vial.
