Bible Study: The Book of the Revelation – LESSON 16

Calvary Bible Church Bible Study

The Book of the Revelation

 

LESSON 16:  JUDGMENT ON BABYLON. 17:1–18:24 (part 2, chapter 18)

This chapter carries on the subject of God’s judgment on Babylon.  Since the church is the Bride of Christ and a city, the New Jerusalem (see 21:9–10), there is no valid reason to deny that the harlot Babylon is a city (cf. 18:10). It is proper to think of Babylon in chapter 17 as a vast religious (ecclesiastical) system (vrs. 2, 4, 6), and also in chapter 18 as a huge interlocking commercial system (vrs. 3, 11–17).

Habakkuk 2:4 has the distinction of being quoted three times in the NT. In Acts 13:40-41 the Apostle Paul ended his sermon in the synagogue at Antioch, Pisidia, by quoting Habakkuk 1:5, another illustration of how an apparently obscure and short OT book can have rich doctrinal content. Also, compare Habakkuk 3:17-18 with Philippians 4:4, 10–19. Both the prophet and the apostle could rejoice in their God no matter what the outward circumstances of life might be. Continue Reading Here
