Revelation Series (10) Babylon the Great

Pastor Randy's message covered the two aspects of Babylon: Spiritual Babylon (Rev. 17) and Physical/Commercial Babylon (Rev. 18). Babylon was founded by Nimrod (Gen. 10) and is the place where humans built the Tower of Babel to "make a name for themselves." Babylon is where humanity's fascination with astrology and the occult began. God confused their language and so Babylon (the 2nd most mentioned city in the Bible) became the city of confusion/chaos, contrasted with Jerusalem (the most mentioned city in the Bible), which means "City of Peace."

The woman of Rev. 17 is the great city Babylon and its anti-God, world-wide spiritual influence in the last days. However, she will be hated by the Antichrist (the beast) and the 10-nation confederation and be brought to her ruin. But just as Spiritual Babylon (the woman) will meet its demise, so will Commercial Babylon and its influence on the three sectors of society: government, commerce, and maritime. Three "Woe" judgments are pronounced and Babylon will be destroyed in "one hour," never to rise again.

With the end of Rev. 18 comes the close of the 7-Year Tribulation period. The Second Coming of our Lord and Savior is near! This Sunday, we will celebrate the Marriage Supper of the Lamb and the Victorious Return of Jesus!
