Learn more about the ministry of the truth project at Let's continue the visions of Gerard Babylon is Dr. Davis's vision is the destruction of Babylon for the first time Babylon is mentioned in Revelation Babylon is covered mostly in chapter 17 and 18. This is a preliminary announcement of the final overthrow of the file city in the world system. The ancient city, Babylon is first mentioned in Genesis 10 through 11, but we learned a lot about the book of Daniel. If you remember we did get to the book of Daniel we studied a tremendous amount of time about Babylon and ancient city of Babylon but when Babylon is mentioned in the Bible it can refer to either the actual city for the pagan humanistic world system that characterized the city and emanated from it to influence others, but in this case Babylon is God's name for the world system.

The antichrist will institute during the tribulation system which he will destroy. Some believe that the actual ancient city of Babylon will be rebuilt and be the center of operations for the beast and the false prophet, but we will see how that happens later on in chapter 16 and 17. Let's move onto the next vision next vision is in Revelation chapter 14 verses nine through 11 in outreach those in 1/3 angel followed them, saying with a loud voice. If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand. He himself shall also drink the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of his Dick. His indignation shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb and the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever, and they should have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name is pretty clear that those who worship the beast will be dimmed by God but the opposite is also true that if you worship God will be condemned by the beast. Literally you have to sell your soul for piece of bread and this reminds me of the verse, and Joshua, where it says to shoot this day him you're going to serve as for me and my house are going to serve the Lord and when this decision is made in the tribulation, the consequences of that will be dire. As far as death.

Let's move onto the next vision as this is the death of the saints on this is really one of the greatest passages of all Scripture is a promise to those who endure the days of the tribulation on earth and are granted rest from their labors were going to read that in verses 12 to 13.

Here is the patience of the saints. Here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.

Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me right. Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.

Yes, says the spirit, that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them. The word rest is often used in the New Testament to refer to those who have died in the Lord, or who are asleep in the Lord such as Lazarus and John on chapter 11 verse 11 but death for the Christian is rest, as if he is sleeping from his labors just waiting to be awakened by the coming of the Lord was going to treat matters with Dr. Cheryl Davis matters is a ministry project-based ministry teaching sound theology goes inside or outside of the church.
