What do a popular honeymoon destination, a statue with a torch, and a pair of millstones have in common?

I believe:   Revelation 18 and New York City.


Honeymoon destination . . . ‘the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee’ . . . Revelation 18:23

A statue with a torch . . . ‘the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee’ . . . Revelation 18:23

A pair of millstones . . . ‘the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee’ . . . Revelation 18:22


This pair of millstones was recently rediscovered.  Notice their significance:

‘Singelton said he believes the stones were first used in a grist mill constructed by a Dutchman, Burger Jorissen, in 1650 in the area that today would be on Northern Boulevard, close to Queens Plaza.’

‘Some say they may have been ballast on a Dutch West India company ship, and that the stones might be the oldest European artifacts in Queens, Singleton said.’


One more thing–they were found in QUEENS.

‘Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.’ (Revelation 18:6-7)
