Revelation Chapter Seventeen, Judgment Of False Religions
In our study of Revelation chapter seventeen, we look at the judgment that is to come on the world religious system. Although the system is not in control of the world yet, we will look at how the seeds have been planted and in fact the system is taking shape even today. There are many countries where the system has total control and the stated goal is to conquer the rest of the world. We will see how God deals with it by using the beast. There have been numerous attempts to identify this system but, at the end of our study, we will see how there is really only one "religion" that fits. We will also see which city is at the center of this judgment of God and why. In chapter 16, we saw God's wrath poured out on all of creation and now all that is left is the judgments on the disobedient.
