The adoration of the lamb, the fall of Babylon, the harvesting of the earth

In the upper left, on a barely visible mount Sion, stands the lamb. From beneath the Lamb, a white and red stream falls upon the city of Babylon. On earth, the hour has come to reap. The angel directly below Christ points down and motions to Christ to thrust his sickle into the earth and reap.
