the world system (revelation 14:8)
This message was preached on May 7, 2017 at New Testament Christian Fellowship in Conover, North Carolina. This continues a discussion on Revelation 14:8, the second of three angelic messages broadcast in the snapshot of judgment, that which announces the fall of Babylon, the world system, the body politic. In the context of the Apostle Paul's reminders in I Corinthians 10:11 & Romans 15:4, the world system and the witness of God amidst this corruption is traced further (i.e. continuing where the previous message left off), from the sons of Noah after the Flood down the genealogical line to the 13th from Adam by way of Ham (i.e. Nimrod, a type of Antichrist) and the 13th from Adam by way of Shem & Arphaxad (i.e. Cainan, a type of Christ, see Luke 3:36). The fall of the world system as announced in Revelation 14:8 is likewise compared and contrasted to the fall of Babel in Genesis 11.
