The Dragon's War

In the book of Revelation, Satan attacks the Lamb by persecuting his followers, those who have the testimony of Jesus

At times, there may be so many “trees” that we find it difficult to see the “forest” - details distract us from seeing the obvious. This is often the case when dealing with the visions of
Revelation. According to its very first verse, it is intended to “reveal what things must come to pass,” not to conceal them or mystify its readers - [Photo by Mike Hindle on Unsplash].

Christ or Christendom

By the term ‘Christendom’ men invoke God to validate national institutions and pervert the gospel of Jesus Christ

The mixing of church and State leads to the association and even identification of Christianity with specific nations, cultures, and political ideologies. When church leaders employ terms like ‘Christendom’ to distinguish one country from another, they replace the biblical faith with a false and often antichrist religion - [

Great Golden Image

Nebuchadnezzar implemented his dream by “setting up” the great golden image as he imagined it to glorify his majesty and realm - Daniel 3:1-7.

The King invested great effort to make 
his dream into reality.  He “set up” an enormous image covered in gold to represent his majesty and the power of the Empire, and he commanded all the “peoples and nations and tongues” of his realm to pay homage to his image or face a horrific death in the “burning fiery furnace” - [Obelisk - Photo by peter bucks on Unsplash].

In the Bible, Babylon is both a historical kingdom and a symbol for the recurring rise of the World Empire

In the book of
Daniel, Babylon is called the “land of Shinar,” a link to the story of the Tower of Babel and the founding of the city of Babylon. That incident is echoed also in the third chapter of Daniel when Nebuchadnezzar gathers all the nations to pay homage to his great golden image - [Ziggarut Photo by Sam Moghadam Khamseh on Unsplash].

Empires Rise and Fall

Imperial hubris is the legacy of the Tower of Babel, humanity’s first but certainly not attempt to establish the World Empire

The Tower of Babel incident is echoed in 
Daniel when the ruler of Shinar” gathers all nations to worship his great image in the “Plain of Dura.” His empire was not a new entity, but the latest incarnation of Satan’s plan to control humanity, one that has been underway since human civilization began - [Photo by Christoph Schmid on Unsplash].
