Part 7 (2nd Part) Book of Revelation Study
Babylon the Great – Revelation 17-19:10
We now switch to look at the major themes in the Book of Revelation that detail the events of the last years.
In Revelation 17 through Rev 19:10 we see a description of the Kingdom of the Anti-Christ – the political, economic and social environment in which he rises. It is this “Kingdom”, this system that prepares the world for the most diabolical deception there has ever been. It is the same deception, created by the same personality who brought Adam and Eve into destruction. The question he uses to deceive in these last days is even the same question he used in the garden, “Has God said”. Everything about this “Kingdom” supports a questioning, a debasing and eventual rejection of moral law rooted in the Bible. Tolerance and freedom are the mantras of the day as Christians are labeled as a hate group based upon a hate filled prehistoric belief system that has no place in an enlightened modern society.
Psalm 2 describes this world-wide environment as the leaders declare … “Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? 2 The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed, saying, 3 ‘Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles.’ the “chains and shackles” are the laws and parameters of human behavior based in the world of God. Into this environment of rebellion against the Word of God, the Anti-Christ emerges – the man of lawlessness is revealed – not as an evil dictator, but rather as an imitation of Christ Himself. The Anti-Christ fakes the second coming of Christ – even using amazing miraculous supernatural power to convince all of who he is. That is until half way through his 7 years reign he reveals his true identity and demands world-wide worship as god.
