The Babylon of this chapter undoubtedly includes an actual city that will be rebuilt on the Euphrates and a politico-commercial system that becomes the means and basis of a new worldwide religious system by which the beast will be worshipped (Rev. 13:). If you recall, the beast brings about his own worship by his control of commerce, or buying and selling. The chief element of Babylon emphasized in this chapter is commerce on a worldwide scale, international or multinational organizations. In chapter 17 the beast and his allies in politico-commercial Babylon destroy religious Babylon, or apostate Christendom. Today there are a multitude of worldwide organizations already devoted to the concept of antichrist and are also already speaking of the overthrow of the present religious systems including Judaism, Roman Catholicism, and Protestantism. But by contrast in this chapter it is God who overthrows commercial Babylon. The great city of Babylon that will be rebuilt, and the religious Babylon that has cause the world to drink from the wine of her fornication, God will put an end to them.
But when the eight kingdoms, which will be ruled by the Antichrist come to power in the last 3 1/2 years, Satan will come up with a new system. One world government, one world currency, one world religion. When the ten kings give they power to the Antichrist, he will unite the world under his leadership, “as one government”. The one currency the world will go by, will be his mark, under his new system, “all will need his mark on their foreheads or right hands to buy or sell”. And the world will unite under one religion, the name of it will be “Chrislam”, all the Christians churches and the Muslims mosque will join as one.
In these verses we see a tremendous contrast and one that should strike a note of warning and alarm as we conduct our lives in a world that is already so dominated by the mental attitude of commercial Babylon. This mental attitude and control is going to increase, its enticements and pulls will get worse. We definitely need the perspective of these verses (20-24) along with obedience to verse 4. The world weeps over the destruction of Babylon and the loss of its material luxuries. For the worldling, this is all he has; he thinks of life as consisting not only in the abundance of the details of life but also in possessing the luxuries of those details. By contrast, the believer must come out of the system, that is, he must not be controlled by Satan’s system, or by his own lust patterns. We can use the world, enjoy the blessings God gives, but God forbid that such things become our source of security and happiness. Further, the believer must rejoice over the prospect of the fall of commercial Babylon because of what this means to God and to all mankind in the coming kingdom Jesus rule on earth. So the kings, merchants, and the mariners wail over the passing of Babylon 1Jh 2: 15-18. But heaven and its people rejoice and find strength over the prospect of its fall. Come Lord Jesus, come, may your will be done as it is in heaven. Amen! Amen! Amen…Rev 7: 9-12.
