TEXT: Revelation 18:20-24
Today, we are going to continue looking at the destruction of the antichrist world religious system which will be coupled with a materialistic economic system during the end times. As you will recall from our previous message, the world will be in an uproar over the fall of the Babylonian economic entity which will make it possible for many to live lavishly even as the world will be going through the darkest days it has ever seen. This idolatrous world system will ultimately be wiped out by the judgment of God, and all those who trusted in it -- even some Christians, as this chapter indicates -- will suffer great loss.
Notice the words directed to God's people during the destruction of Babylon: "Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her." One of the reasons why Babylon is judged so harshly is because of her persecution of God's people. Verse 24 tells us that in Babylon "was found the blood of prophets, and of saints." Because of the evangelistic outreach of the 144,000 Jews during the end times, there will be many who accept Jesus Christ as their Savior and who will refuse to live by the antichrist world system. They will refuse to go along to get along. And many of them will be imprisoned and killed for their faith.
