TEXT: Revelation 17:1-6
In our last message, we began looking at the symbolism of the Babylonian harlot in the end times. This symbolism is tied to the real, ancient city of Babylon in present-day Iraq.
Already, we have learned that the devil will begin the manifestation of his antichrist world system not as a political organization, but as a religious organization. This religious organization will have worldwide influence. The leaders of nations will be in league with this organization. And the world's population will eagerly accept what this organization has to offer.
Why does Satan choose to begin his world system as a religion? Because Satan has always tried to counterfeit what God does. When Jesus Christ came preaching the Kingdom of God, He spoke of not a political kingdom, but a spiritual kingdom. Man's deepest needs are spiritual and God knew that man would never have those needs fulfilled unless man became connected to Himself. That's why God sent Jesus. In the end times, Satan will attempt to convince the world that it can fulfill its deepest spiritual desires through participation in the worldwide antichrist religious system.
